Is the Molot Vepr 7.62x39 Hunting Rifle Banned in Maryland?

I didn't see anything on the banned list saying that this rifle is banned. It seems to be legal in other States that have very prohibitive gun laws. This is imported as a hunting rifle. They have a different receiver than a standard AK, different barrel. They have heavy barrels and they don't take standard AK Magazines. I don't see any reason why this would be banned. AK is not in the name. This 7.62x39 looks like a good alternative to an AK.

I cant remember with classic if they ship to MD or not. I know some places if its even kinda sorta looks like it could be banned they wont touch it. Hell, k-var/fime which import the damn things wont ship to MD. To answer the cost question, it was 950. However i had some trades where what i paid was far, far less. As far as handling goes, the thumbhole stock is actually super comfy, the butt pad is crazy grippy on clothes and me personally i love the heft, around 9.5lbs i believe. The ammo half the price of .223 is nothing to sneeze at either.

I'm not a fan of thumb hole stocks, but it looks great on this rifle.

There's online tutorials for fitting other stocks and handguards to them, including the Magpul Zhukov stuff.

I've ordered Veprs to MD from Classic before. If your FFL will accept it, then sweaty Ben will send it.

Anyone know if these will take AK furniture or "AK style" furniture?

You might need to make some minor mods to the gasblock and you will need one of those slant adaptors, but otherwise it's fairly straightforward to convert one into something that cosmetically resembles an AK from 10 feet away or so.

The problem is that you'll always have that wide trunnion, the heavy RPK-width barrel, and the lack of an underslung cleaning rod to contend with, and so even in the best of all cases you're just going to end up with a mutt that only sort of looks like a proper AKM. Me, I like the stock furniture's ergonomics and so I've kept mine stock, but ymmv.
