While calling a Krebs Custom Vepr RPK an “AK” is technically accurate, I’m pretty sure that few would consider the $1,799 rifle equipped with a $359 scope to be a fair approximation of an average AKM.

MAC takes this very nice custom rifle out to 500 yards, which is pushing the limits of the 7.62×39 intermediate cartridge, a round most typically used inside 200 yards.

We’ll be building our own AK with Rifle Dynamics in just a couple of weeks when they come to Jacksonville, NC. Considering Jim Fuller’s reputation as one of the nation’s most knowledgeable AK gurus, I’m hoping that┬árifle will be every bit as accurate as this one in Tim Harmsen’s capable hands.
