    RPK-74m w/ PO4x24P2 optic, conversion build off of a 5.45 VEPR. Comes in at a svelte 14 pounds.

    A very nice build indeed. The RPK-74M was basically a AK-74M’ed RPK. Plastic furniture replaced the wood and a folding stock was added. The VEPR rifles are consumer versions of the RPK manufactured by Molot. Molot became a subsidiary of izhmash (now called Kalashnikov) after they were successfully sued by Izhmash for patent infringement.
