Default Vector Arms V51 .308 pistol

Just saw this thing on Atlantic Firearms website. I don't know why, but I kinda want one! It's pretty cool AND ridiculous at the same time - cooldiculous! ...and luckily you can drop in the ol' full-auto sear where applicable, cuz I know I want .308 comin' out of something this small as fast as possible!

$1499 plus some CA single-shot conversion costs and you're good to go!

Atlantic Arms told me in writing they would not ship one of these pistols to CA using a 1 shot pistol exemption.

I'll bet they'd ship one to an FFL not in CA who would single shot it and then send to CA.

wow! That would be a BEAST to control in FA fire! lol
I guess if you dont hit them with the bullet then you'll still cause 3rd degree burns from the powder burns... ?!

Ah crap.

I think I may want one too. If my ACOG doesn't fall thru then I'm getting one.

Seriously.

Why do you not ship 12133PC-compliant single-shot pistols to CA FFLs?

Other vendors do, including Robinson Armament, LWRC and various FFLs.

If it's a matter of cost of conversion, charge the customer extra for any BulletButton variant maglock, a single-shot sled or zero-round-blocked magazine - still less grief than going thru a secondary middleman FFL.

The Calguns Foundation will represent your company, the CA FFL and your end customer should any drama occur relating to Roster matters for a properly configured Roster-exempt non-AW firearm.

Just remember that single-shot status should be configured before the firearm enters CA, not by the recipient CA FFL afterward.

Wow, that's a very nice offer - thanks for the encouragement and backing of outside vendors that are willing to ship to CA!

So did you even end up getting it? I would really like to know how well it fires and how much the final cost was to get one.

Vector has a good reputation, and I've fired a SBR K of theirs with a registered sear-pack - it ran 100%

No reason the pistol version shouldn't be of the same quality, but I'll warn you in advance that 7.62 out of a tube that short is just as brutal as you'd imagine.

Yeah I figured it would, but I have a cetme and I'm not sure but I think it takes the same clips, which would be very convenient.
