    Folding stock weld question

    Some have asked if the Vepr 12 will shoot when the factory tubular stock is in the folded position. I can confirm that the weapon shoots folded without any problems.

    Folding stock weld question

    Good to go. I didn't have to hit it with anything. After a little filing I took it outside and leaned it against a chair. I put my weight into it and it broke free. I held the folding mechanism open using a plastic cap from a small ballpoint pen. Now it's a folder and I already have my 922r parts on it. 2 legit.

    Folding stock weld question

    Trying to break the weld. It appears to be a light weld. So should I give this thing a good wack with a rubber hammer at this point? Also do I need to shove something in the latch on the left side to engage the fold mechanism? Thanks
  5. Sounds good everyone! I will post an update once I get it all fixed up. Thanks to all for the comments and recommendations. I will take it nice and easy, and go slow.
  6. A handful from around 09-10 came with factory threaded barrels. His very well may be one of them. +1. Mine was one of them. Normally you can see the start of the threads peaking through if you look closely. Measure back 5/8" from the muzzle, mark a line and use a pipe cutter to cut through the shroud. If you have threads, your done:) . If not you needed to cut back the shroud 5/8" to thread the barrel anyway. I will try and get a pic of it to post tomorrow. From what I remember it looks a lot like you describe Spacehog. A handful from around 09-10 came with factory threaded barrels. His very well may be one of them. +1. Mine was one of them.

From what I remember it looks a lot like you describe Spacehog. Here are some pics of the tip of the barrel. Looks like shit. I tried cleaning the tip but ended up spreading around a bunch of gunk instead. That's not rust. Anyway, I'm gonna say that Threads are there, just my gut. Gonna have to do some cutting to know for sure. Rifle manufacture date is 2009.

    Saiga pricing a few years back

    Paid $320 bucks for a bone stock IZ-132, $400 for an S-12 right before the 2008 panic ensued. After that, everything changed.
  10. I got to looking at the barrel on my IZ 132 and it looks like there are threads on the barrel underneath the shrouded portion of the front site. I will try to get a good pic of it later, I just don't want to go dig it out of the safe right now. My question about that is what would be the best way to expose the possible threads without taking the entire front site off or doing any damage to possible said threads? Take it slow with a Dremel and cutting wheel? A pipe cutter? I'd like to keep the site where it is if at all possible and just drill out the hole for a detent since I have those parts on hand. -Shotty

    Barrel Shroud Question

    I had one made by http://www.alumaliteusa.com/ some time back. I love it! No weight issues. You hardly know that it's there, and it looks bad ass. Fits the same on the S12.
