  1. Low inventory.. I don't want to sell out at a discount. I'll do a sale on them in the spring for tax time when we make the next run. It's tax time! +1
  2. Drops in without any mod on VEPR rifle.. The only caveat is the VEPR 12.
  3. I put my 5.45 handguard on my 308 with no fitting if that helps.
  4. Looks nice. I am doing a VEPR 7.62x39 now. Just waiting on Dinzag for some of the parts. Any chance on getting a close up picture of the stock and the DPH adapter? I am working on getting the wood stock that they put on VEPR 12 to fit on my 7.62. It is pretty close. I had to file some off the DPH adapter to get it look flush with the receiver. I have been working on re-contouring the stock because the bottom and sides hang past the receiver. I tried using a Romanian laminate wood stock, but the sides and bottom of the stock were bellowing over the receiver. I ended up contour sanding that stock too. I don't know which one I will keep. It has been a learning experience. I believe this is a common issue with fitting AK stock on VEPR. The pictures on Atlantic's website of the Russian Red VEPR in 7.62 show how much of a gap when IWD wood set is installed.
  5. I just got my 7.62x39 Vepr from Centerfire. They sold out fast. I was looking for type type 01 for a long time, and then I saw them for $499. I said thank you lord baby Jesus!
  6. What color stain did you use on your furniture? Looks awesome.
  7. Looks nice. What brand lower handguard retainer did you use?
  8. I modified a AGP mag today. The two spots that it rubs on the magwell are the two upper screw points on the magazine. I sanded them pretty good. I was trying to be cautious on sanding too much off and removing material until the screw shank was showing. The bolt hold open is totally recessed into the magazine. I don't see anyway it could be modified to work. I think if you made a new bolt hold open lever with an extended arm, it could work in conjunction with raising the follower. Lots of ifs.
  9. Did you have to slam to get the mag to lock initially? My fixed stock VEPR12 had a mag release that was a lot tighter than my folder. I assume you are using the mag that come with the gun. When did you buy the gun? Sounds like a huge QC issue. Where did you purchase it from. Not sure if you can get a replacement at this point with the sanctions. I have had AK47 mags get that tight Yugo mags. It sounds like the mag catch needs adjusted. I removed my mag catch recently and filed it down to match my other VEPR12. I was able to do without removing the mag well. I did have a hell of a time getting the mag catch pin out though.
  10. I am a little confused by the stock recoil spring tensions listed in this post. I know you can use 1911 springs for your Vepr or Saiga 12. I also know the standard weight for a 1911 is 16 lbs. Am I reading this correctly that the stock weight for a Saiga/Vepr 12 is also 16l bs? I was under the impression that it was anywhere from 20-22 lbs for stock recoil springs for Saiga/Vepr 12. It seems this has come up on tons of posts, but nothing concrete.
  11. I just tried removing the plastic mag well today. What a PITA. The pin is extremely tight in the mag catch and will not come out. I have to got to Home Depot and get a new screw driver to grind for the nut and a new punch. I destroyed my punch trying to get that damn thing out.
  12. I assume you removed the mag release to file it. Is that correct? Did you have to remove the mag well too?
  13. I was curious what everyone's magazine releases look like on their VEPR 12s. I have a side folder and a fixed stock and they are two different types. The one pictured below was from the fixed stock. The mag catch is shaped similar to an AK47 style with a U channel. Here is the other mag catch from my side folder. It looks similar to a Saiga 12. The reason I ask is the side folder mag release seams to be smoother when I insert a mag. The fixed stock mag latch seem to be a little longer and I need to remove material from the mag to get it to lock into place. Not a huge deal, but I would like to the mag fitment to be the same in both guns.
  14. You have peaked my interest. But the funny thing is I am trying to get it to cycle bulk pack ammo first. Seems like a lot of people have no issues with bulk ammo, but mine is finicky.
  15. Legion must have sold out last night. I went to their site now, and they are all gone.
  16. Man I am slow. I was looking at your other post about removing the stock tube and just noticed in this post that you drilled a hole for the lower pin to punched through. I was thinking you drilled the lower pin out, thus needing a new pin. My bad.
  17. I do like Csspecs Vepr 308 mags. They are solid. I would like to get my hands on one of their Vepr 12 mags when it comes out. Hopefully they snap right into the gun with out any adjustment.
  18. Does anyone know where to get replacement pins once the old ones are drilled out?
  19. I thought about doing this to make the length of pull shorter. So the pins were coming loose for you? Is that the main reason for you removing the tubes from the foldable hinge?
  20. I just read your post and had to laugh. I used brake cleaner on my bolt carrier and recoil rod this weekend, and the paint melted off. I don't know what kind of cheap as paint they use in Russia. Good thing I did not use it on the receiver.
  21. Hum....Both of mine are WPA guns. Did yours come converted or did you convert?
  22. Has anyone tried the Polish Tantal mags in their converted VEPRs? The reason I ask is because I filed my mag catch for circle 10 mags and the Tantals are extremely sloppy in one of my conversions. The mag sits to low and the bolt will not strip the round. I have another conversion that I did, and I filed the mag for the Tantals to work, but the Circle 10 rear lug will not engage the mag release because the rear lug is to thick. It seems like the Polish steel mags have different dimensions on the rear lugs. Also, the sides of the Tantal mags do not fit snug in the mag well like the Circle 10 do. Overall I am disappointed in the Tantal fit in both guns. One gun it works but it is sloppy, the other it does not. On the gun that it works, I had to shave the hell out of the rear lug on the Circle 10 mag to get it insert and lock. Do most Circle 10 mags require filing on the rear lug to get the mag catch to lock. I have only dealt with VEPR 5.45 conversions and not SAIGA, so I have no clue on what is the norm. I also wondered if the selector lever plate needed adjustment. I did not know if the mag was going far enough in the mag well. I kind of find it hard to believe that both rifles would require selector lever plate to be adjusted. I know a lot of Century builds need this adjusted, but I have not heard of this with SAIGA or VEPR. I used a bullet guide from CSS if that makes a difference. The only thing that irritates me with this gun is that I have to adjust the mags for each gun. I am debating changing out the mag release on the first gun that will only take the Circle 10 mag. I had to do this on my Yugo PAP. Not fun, but fixed the botched up mag release that Century hacked.
  23. Wagnikov......Can you explain what you mean by "slow ready"?
