    Radically short Vepr 12 SBS

    I will say this you’re responsible for whatever you hit. if you did what we discussed with an 8in barrel and didn’t know that’s going to be a problem. It hit the whole room and went through the walls. Pattern size should double 2x distance. That’s why I warn people ill add that the 8in is so loud it will destroy you firing that without ear plugs but I fire the 12in without plugs and no ringing. It’s about the noise of a standard shotgun.

    Anything I posted was edited to add something at the time I posted it or not at all. I wouldn’t go back and edit something a year old that’s also been quoted. ETA: once it’s been quoted for posterity it’s up forever, never edited one more than a few min old, and if I was wrong I’d admit it. I am not.

    I didn’t edit anything, it has the edit time below the post if I did.

    Radically short Vepr 12 SBS

    Now you’re in trouble... because rather than strip all the finish off a part and leave it bare metal which rusts (It’s called oxidation, iron oxide, oxygen is corrosive) you coat it with something. This is the same reason you wipe it down with oil. Hotbluing is a professional gun finish which is smooth. if for whatever reason you decide the finish on it isn’t good enough, (it’s an AK that works fine, izhmash or Molot even) the correct way to do it is run the damn thing through a bluing tank. And yes I’ve been on this form under two accounts since 2002. That’s the last time I’m posting in this thread dip here was enough. If you don’t bother to go pattern the fucker i don’t know why you would keep arguing you obviously don’t care what it does.

    You see I’ve already done this with a big sheet of cardboard and an 8in barrel. Loads I was discussing were 15pel 3in 12pel 2 & 3/4 I’m thinking you either only shoot birdshot or like most people don’t realize how big of a pattern you throw. Another reason to go with 12in is a loss of only 100FPS from 18in aside from the pressure. Normal buckshot the pressure will cause standard cardboard wads/discs to blow apart the shot producing a large spread. Flight control and similar the pressure will blow the back off the flight control/versatite wad. The pressure is too high to choke it could tear out.

    It will do it because there is no shot cup. What you have in normal buckshot is pellets stacked on cardboard discs... but I can see you still haven’t done it. The cardboard discs in the bottom of Remington 12 pellet 00 will exit the barrel with such high pressure they blow the shot apart

    Leaving Vepr 12 Mags Loaded

    Exactly I remember some people looking into brass or aluminum hull Barnaul but you don’t need it unless that’s your choice of ammunition. As long as the mag works, the mag shouldn’t cost anything, you’re talking about 20 cents of plastic
  8. Yeah I saw the gas system on it. Simple to chop the barrel no shortening of the gas system required. Drill it if needed I figured it may need drilled because they were already not running low brass as is. I’d probably only get it running 9 pellet win, highbrass only.

    NEW US Made Magfed Shotgun...Coming Soon

    I’m eyeballing the Utas XTR-12 which should be a big hit. May need a new forum for it. .308/12ga AR. www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2017/05/02/utas-xtr-12-12-gauge-ar-shotgun-nra-17/amp/ ill have to put together a long range Upper for it .308.
  10. mike12345

    any plastic mag pouches out there that work?

    The best thing I’ve seen is to just take a strip of kydex cut it out from a sheet. tape it onto the bottom of the magazine like a big belt clip. it’ll hang from your waist ammunition down. Under a plate carrier it works fine. Mine run down the inside of my pants not just a belt.

    NFA Engraving.

    Yeah didn’t notice the date on it. I’ve done it a number of different ways. Been here since the beginning practically. You have to click the name to check the join dates.
  12. Take both. You can carry a short barrel saiga/vepr for door breaching and transition. With an AR rifle if if I wasn’t allowed to have the short barrel I’d be carrying the Remington tac-14

    NFA Engraving.

    The sad part is we’ve paid $200 to register a gun then you have to figure out how to mark the stupid thing. You know rather than sticking with tradition saying FU!

    NFA Engraving.

    it’s plastek I think I’d call around and just find a laser engraver any trophy shop can do that one where you normally wouldn’t meet depth requirements on metal

    AR-10 Rush???

    The only reason to build a .308 AR IMO is for long range. The douche manufacturers still haven’t fixed their shit grade magazines. M118LR 175SMK won’t fit in any of them unless you buy a special 25rd (too long from bipod) M118LR Pmag. So be prepared to spend $70-80 per 20rd magazine from larue. They won’t fit DPMS mags either. Your options are KAC $100 or larue $80 https://www.larue.com/products/larue-tactical-20-round-7-62-magazines/

    Leaving Vepr 12 Mags Loaded

    I’ve always left all saiga and vepr mags loaded always had a SBS for HD. never had a top round deform to the point it didn’t cycle when I took it out and fired it, or picked it up a year later and racked the bolt. It’ll spit out the one in the chamber and load the next.

I believe I went and I found a longer pistol grip screw for that reciever block, run to the hardware store.

    Saiga 12 sbr not only able to shoot high brass

    A punch, drill bits, trial and error. You knock the pins out of the gas block and drill them bigger, put it together shoot it. The gas system on yours appears to be shortened. You can measure the port size by using the back of a drill bit. This will be helpful https://www.brokenbolt.com/images/starrett-inch-metric-tap-drill.pdf

    Trump Annual 90 Day NFA Amnesty Period? ...

    obviously you need to get an army together to make enough of a scene to get the amnesty. It’s a good idea imo people already have or can get whatever they register. Guns found in grandpas attic type stuff.

    Trump Annual 90 Day NFA Amnesty Period? ...

    Last time 1968. the secretary of the treasury is the only one who can do it. He has to write in the federal register announcing an amnesty. If you’ve ever gotten a refund check you may have noticed it’s a treasury check. It would be listed here https://www.federalregister.gov/agencies/alcohol-tobacco-firearms-and-explosives-bureau to be quite honest your best bet is to go raise hell on his Twitter

    So I un-TROMIXED my Tromix S-17.

    IMO Don’t bother with the muzzle attachments. We always breached doors without them. Just press the barrel against the wood door at a 45 degree angle. Pop the hinges or deadbolt pin going into the door frame. They just add length and no recoil reduction as most are made as breachers. Can’t say I’ve used an 8in to do it tho. we were always using issued 9pellet Winchester buck, and it’s a mossberg pistol grip pump just the barrel.

    Just something I noticed

    Feel free to hit the range with your choice of anti-personnel ammunition hammer it off and find out. Mine did it first or second run. I’m assuming the inside plate bounces out and that floor plate slides right off like glass. they’re better than the rest of the US copy’s I’ve seen which I considered crap. The CSS specs do run. One of the many reasons I’ve said they’re crap is that you’ll have to expend so much ammunition to make sure those magazines run it’s not worth it. That’s aside from dicking around with them, getting to a range, paying fees to shoot for most people. You may as well spend the extra money to buy a better magazine. That’s even if it’s just a HD gun.

    Try dropping a loaded vepr magazine and let me know what your results are. I did it on accident with a 10rd Factory mag.

    Just something I noticed

    I did get a few CSS specs magazines the issue with their magazine is heavy recoiling ammunition causes the floor plate to fall off. The spring follower everything dumps. I was running hornady heavy magnum coyote 3in because it was on the shelf versatite wad and 12 pellets 00. I was able to fix to fix that problem though by bending the floor plate tabs in a vice. They slide on with a lot of force probably not coming back off.
