We had a vision of what I wanted in an AK and took that design to a couple of upper tier AK manufacturers. An optics platform AK devoid of the traditional sights found on most AK pattern rifles. This is what Marc Krebs came up with.

The Krebs Custom KV-13 is the ultimate evolution of the AK rifle. Krebs starts with a standard VEPR AK rifle, strips it down, then rebuilds it from the ground up. The gas block is straightened, sights are aligned, all moving parts are fit, updated parts are installed and the rifle is refinished with extremely durable Krebs Kote. The end result is a rifle that is peerless in the industry in terms of fit, finish and overall quality.
