  1. I should have been more specifiic. The walmart bulk pack winchester low brass...about the cheapest crappiest you can find. It's overgassed on the federal flight control or slugs.
  2. I was thrilled to death when my V12 was able to run the crappiest of crap ammo. That being said, i decided to try something with some more power. I noticed that it feels as though im slapping the rear trunion. Are there any stiffer springs out there that'll work? I kinda miss being undergassed with a saiga.
  3. Thanks cameron. If you need a vepr 12 to borrow, i'm in indianapolis.
  4. that's an excellent idea! Thank you.
  5. thanks for the compliment. Its just a cheap hinge from the hardware store. it started out looking like this. this is what it looks like now up close. and here is a shot of it before paint. the hinge has a little play in it so I believe at some point i may do something different. I am going to try to put a hardened hing pin in the hinge to see if that helps. If it doesn't i may break down and buy an ace folding mechanism. All in all I only have about 10 bucks in the hole thing. +! for ingenuity
  6. I'm assuming this is a drop in OEM replacement and not something that is a gas booster or bleeder to fine tune this machine. I think i'm gonna need less gas to run the really heavy stuff. Please tell your manufacturer there is interest in different performing pucks. Thanks Greg for all you do to continue giving us what we need at blinding fast speeds.
  7. Thanks for all the responses so far. One guy got a message stating to ship the gun to Mach1 and they will bend the receiver cover straight.
  8. Not my picture man, so i don't know. I usually wear Puma socks as i have delicate piggies.
  9. The one i ordered is perfectly fine and is probably the finest example of craftsmanship to ever leave Russia. I asked the others for more pictures and if they send them i'll post em. They all say the same thing and that it's canted to the same side.
  10. I belong to another forum where several members have been reporting that their top rails are canted. I'd say the ratio is about 1/4th of those that ordered, so 5 out of 20. Those with canted rails placed orders with all the major online gun stores, so it's not specific to any store. I know in the past that Cadiz was the go-to (but no longer) for warrantee issues with the saiga 12. What are their options to fix the canted rail or canted sights?
  11. Advise when you get more Vepr12 mags in and i'll order some.
  12. should we put our forum names in the comment section?
  13. High five for making it work! Thanks for supporting the community!
  14. I'll buy all four if the deal falls through. Or two if one of the others falls through.
  15. Hey PZ all your information is an incredible help!
  16. My FFL info is in PDF format. I chose to "skip ffl" when i placed my order as i was sure they would fly off the shelves before i could get the information (just got it). My order is paid in full, and my invoice says "ffl skipped" how do i go about adding my FFL?
  17. Hey atlantic, I just pre ordered my Vepr12 (thank you so much for the opportunity) and i realize i need a set of your bakelite '74 mags. I put 300$ down on the Vepr. Is it possible to order the mags at the same time i pay off the Vepr so you can throw them in the box with the Vepr? If not, no big deal. Thanks again for the deal.
  18. I want a free conversion so bad it hurts, however, I would punch my mother in the face for a free tac 47 conversion!
  19. You can buy the spring, detent, and threading tools from cnc warrior. I rethreaded my Maadi with 12x28RH and used a slant break. I purchased some furniture from Apex, dyed it and here is the outcome. In case you're wondering how i got Plum Us palm furniture, i started with "bakelite" and dyed it with RIT wine dye.
  20. The second you release one in 7.62x39 i will purge my bank account and you'll be rich! Any news as to when that may happen?
  21. I haven't gotten mine, but i'm still hopeful that they arrive
