Looks like a slant back vepr with a bunch of shit bolted on it to me. Whether or not its worth it is up to you. If it were me, I'd get a real vepr FM for $1000 cheaper.

If you want to SBR it, it's ~$200 including parts and shipping to have a qualified gunsmith to swap the gas block to a different one. I recently sent off my arsenal for the same work. It was $130 and I supplied the parts.

It is based on sportster/slant Vepr which I use to buy for about $800 and with additional parts and addapter it was max to $1200. With fancy additions it might be little more but not what they are asking. You could find this Vepr in wood on Gunbroker and convert it yourself for a half price or so. That is example: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/771785629
SBR it or not is up to you, it should not cost that much. Bullet guide, ALG also not that complex and expensive to install and I did it for many rifles already. So no, I would skip Legion, they are overpriced.

Here is mine slant Vepr 5.45 converted about two years ago: http://le0pold.zenfolio.com/img/s12/...69181680-5.jpg

^this. was in the same boat, bought a vepr fm 5.45 from misha short time ago and still a few floating around. The legion rifle is a thumbhole conversion and way overpriced at that considering still can get them for 8-900$ and add 150$ in conversion parts yourself with 2 hrs of ytube training vids. Good luck OP, pull the trigger these are gone soon then will be in the 2K plus range, plus the FM is gtg from the gate, retainer plate, bulgy 30 mag, already to go...

Rip off.

Looks like a bunch of stuff just bolted on.


They don't even do the detail work like Krebs or RifleDynamics, where the entire rifle is stripped, cleaned, painted, rebuilt, tuned, etc.
