Default Vector Amd-65

Went to a gun store and saw two amd-65s. One was a century build and the other was a Vector Arms. I picked up the Vector and it looked like it had not been used. The guy said that they got it as part of an estate sale as was selling it for $500. I’ve been looking for a truck gun so I put the gun on layaway. Now I have a few questions.

1. Did I make the right choice picking the Vector?
2. Around when did these amds get manufactured?
3. Are their barrels chrome lined? Us made? Hungarian?
4. What is the difference between a Vector reciever and a TGI one? I don’t know much about amds.

Thanks for your help. BTW I hate you guys for getting me into AKs =)

I bought one of these back in 2005. Since Vector's kits pre-date the barrel ban, yes it should have the original Hungarian FEG. This alone makes it a better gun than the Century AMD65, which should have a 14" non-chromelined barrel from GM.

Not sure which receiver you have, but GT does sound likely. Vector used a few different ones though, including Nodak Spud and even some orig FEG SA 2000m.

For $500, you did great. These were more than that over a decade ago.
Yes, Vector was a good AK builder back in the day. The company is still around but hasn't produced AKs (especially the AMD) in ages.
