I hate dumb questions on the many forums I am on, and I think this may be a dumb question. Apologies, if so, in advance.
I have been casually thinking of VEPR's for some time, most of my rifles are WWII Mosins and Mausers. I decided to focus on the VEPR during our Christmas break, learn some stuff and maybe order.
Oh, did I mention Christmas break started Friday 12/17. Yep. It has been wild, needless to say. Terrible timing due to the terrible tragedy!
Anyway, I have learned a ton, but a lot still escapes me.
Before I asked I have done hundreds of searches and just can't find the answer. I expect it is because I don't know the terminology, not that an answer is not out there.
I have a 7.62x54 27" barrel on order from CFS. One of the new ones with square back. Not too concerned about their stock caveat since I want to do something different, anyway.
Bottom Line: I want a Dragunov or even a PSL type WOODEN butt stock and hand grip, the whole deal, wooden, for my VEPR.
I seem to find synthetic ones, and IWD is working up some for the older receiver, but they have no plans at present to develop one for the square back.
As I understand it, and I don't understand much, the new, square backed VEPR will be compatible with AK's...whatever that really means.
Can anyone help, and please understand I have tried to answer this on my own, but I feel I have spent too much time researching.
Oh, any answers in simple terms please.
Thank all of you very much.
