Question

Hard to believe their entire financial well-being was based on exports to the US. What did they do before the US allowed their imports?

USSR military arms production - mostly PPSH, RPKs and Stechkin pistols. After the USSR went under, they ventured into non-mil production.

They are much like Colt; they've done this before - they declare bankruptcy, and someone buys or bails them out. The Russian government will probably bail them out shortly. I doubt they're going anywhere. So far, they are one of the only ones that can export to the U.S., so it is in Russia's best interest to keep an exporter afloat.

With any luck the import ban will be lifted.

This happened in 2006 as well and I've heard it happened other times besides that. If you search this in google you will come across a few other forums who specialize in AK's and they are citing all the old reports to calm folks down. Sounds like it might be just another day in Russian arms manufacturing. I have a feeling this report is being throw around to try to drum up some more sales for the rifle... as the first sites I saw posting the news just happen to sell Veprs!

Either way great rifles so I hope they continue to ship across to our shores!

I looked at classic and atlantic both sold out of 16 inch 7.62x39. They had a couple 7.62 Russian and one 308. If you see a thumb hole 16 inch for a fair price let me know. Thanks.

Wasted Ammo - I sell and ship a lot of Molot VEPR rifles and shotguns. If you're looking for a good buy, Atlantic isn't the place for a deal. Send me a message and I'll get you pricing and availability on Anything. Last I checked earlier in the week, most distributors had a fair amount of Molot inventory on hand.
