Coming all the way from Russia

Maria Butina came all the way from Russia only to pose with a Russian-made Vepr .308 rifle (though modified so heavily in the US that very few of the original parts remain).

TWS forend, dust cover, sight, SGM 25-round magazine, hydraulic stock to bring recoil down to 5.45mm level.

    It was very nice of her to come here only to pose with the rifle, the picture is much appreciated! 🙂 I hope she finds some time to enjoy other aspects of America while she visits, though.

    Would definitely be interested to know more about these “hydraulic” stocks, how well they work, whether there are any drawbacks, etc.

    If they actually work, I think I might be quite interested in putting one on my .308 Zastava M2010.

    I like my AK just the way it is. Simple, reliable , tough. If you still work. THEY still work. As long as you clean it once in a while, and don’t try using it as a war club, it will keep on being what it always was; The best damn infantry carbine ever made. If people would just stop trying to turn every weapon they see into a black plastic “AR” range Barbie…… I shoot the Garand as my “go to” weapon, and don’t find the recoil at all offensive. I really don’t think anything smaller than a .338 would need a “recoil reducer” unless you plan on doing red barrel mag dumps ’till the rifle explodes.

    Beautiful. The lady I mean. The rifle is so-so.
