  1. His were on the heli hogn show, as well as another big company which uses copters. Firebird made licensed heli-hogn guns for a while. The helicopters aren't new. There were even people in LA using an ultralight for hog killing with saigas a few years back too. Ah ok, I was thinking of another video of someone driving around at night doing it. Way to rain on my parade lol. -V
  2. Yes I've seen the Akdal hog slayer video. Actually pretty cool. But now we got helicopters involved, Bro. Also we all know that the Vepr 12 platform is INFINITELY superior to the Akdal in every way. I just think Steve's gun is very well done. Still could benefit from a stock conversion, optic, and maybe even some internal chokes. -V
  3. Also not nearly as heavy As it looks. Lot of polymer and aluminum. -V
  4. He uses #4 buck 27 pellet on an open cylinder! Why Not a rifle? Because what could be better than slaying hogs with a weapon named after a hog??? I think they are able to fly pretty damn close to the ground in that Blackhawk so he's getting a nice spread close up and just able to spray them down with that hail of 1325fps pellets. -V
  5. My buddy Steve Eaton sent me these pictures. This is his Tactical HogSlayer Vepr12 setup. Decked out with a custom Brass Catcher from the guys at Tactical Brass Recovery , Steve uses this gun to help with the nasty feral Hog problem they have in Oklahoma. While airborne. In a Blackhawk helicopter. The brass catcher allows him to track down and exterminate the pesky critters without throwing brass into the cockpit, onto the pilot, etc. AlfaArms handgaurd, GK-03 and Vepr 12 ALG trigger from 4Range, Inc. and also makes excellent use of the SGM Tactical 25 round drum. For anyone that doesn't know, "Vepr" is translated from Russian, it means "wild Boar". Too goddamn cool. -V
  6. I did one of those, and was going to mention that to Vadim. I can say that even doubling the weight had very little observable effect, but even light comps made a huge effect. It isn't the mass alone, or even primarily. That old wive's tale can die.Thank you. Yea I was amazed at how effective all the brakes were. I should have indeed tied a brake to the muzzle after the bare muzzle Test just to smash that myth once and for all, but honestly I was very pressed to do my filming that day and wanted to do the important stuff. Also, note that the lightest brake had the most effect on muzzle rise. Bad boy gunz has moved into full production of the 4oz aluminum brake. The first run was the steel one. He let me crank about 2000 rounds through that one and beat on it during competiton use to make sure it was absolutley durable. And it is. Thanks for watching guys! -V
  7. I've been working on this bad boy for months. The footage was filmed in an afternoon. The editing.....was pretty painstaking. 7 brakes reviewed, with a stock vepr 12 rigged in a sled, with 2 different kinds of ammo, and every shot slo-mo'd and annotated. Authentic Molot Illyn GK 01, 02, and Custom Guns GK 03 Dissident Arms Phoenix Sutaev Bad Boy Gunz V6 Carolina Shooters Supply American GK-01 clone and of course the baseline was set by testing the gun first with a naked muzzle. Enjoy! -V
  8. angle....radius, I never was any good at math lol. To answer your question, wrapping sandpaper around the follower and giving it a good couple of up/downs through the mag bodies used to be part of my mag tuning procedure. It no longer is. It also does nothing for easing the insertion/drop free of the mag. Not NEARLY enough material can be removed by inside sanding to have the desired effect, and pretty quickly you will be removing important material from the "rails" inside that guide the rounds up. Depending on the dimensions and tolerances inside the magazine well, 2 things must happen: 1. the mag must be widened at the top to compensate for the pinching that occurs inside the well. 2. the mag sides at the top need to be sanded down to compensate for the widening, and further to ease insertion and drop free. Thats it. And what I am finding now is that these 2 things must be balanced by not over stretching the mags, which will cause rounds to skip forward off their tracks inside the mags and cause double feeds. A mag can be just fine in one gun, but put it in another with looser or tighter tolerances and it will behave differently. I know this from LOTS of experience. I've done just about everything to these mags to make them run 100%, and I have found the best "recipe". Trust me. -V
  9. Factory mags are not without their issues. In fact, all magazines for the Vepr 12 have their quirks and issues. Ive handled enough of them to know that. Of course we all want perfect out of the box functionality, but that is not realistic. Mike, remember that link you posted just the other day to the "gunsmith special" Vepr 12s available on Classic? Take a closer look at some of those. "Mag stuck in gun....Mag stuck in gun" I received a loaner Vepr 12 to work on/make videos with recently, and it came without a mag. I went to insert 2 different factory 5 rounders that I had in there...and had to beat them out with a rubber mallet. I have a 5 pack of 8 round factory mags right now, half of them will not drop free in 1 of my Vepr 12s, and insert no easier than an unmodified SGM. In my OTHER Vepr, they work without any issues. The variation is IN THE MAG WELL, from the factory. I have done enough work to these to find that out. Specifically the rivets that protrude into the mag well, the depth of which has changed between import batches/production runs of the shotgun, as well as the pitch of the magazine release retainer and its engagement with the mag well/magazine release itself. The truth is that the SGM Vepr 12 magazines were designed for the first batch of Vepr 12s in 2012. And lets not forget that until very recently, the Molot 10 rounders used to cost $110 a piece. If you want or require more than 10 rounds at a time, then SGM is the only answer. A while ago, someone posted a poll question on the Vepr.org forum asking about peoples experience with the SGM Vepr 12 mags. The MAJORITY of those who answered said they had no issues with the mags. Ever. For some people they work fine. For others, all you need is a few minutes of well executed tuning, which I have now freely given the instructions on how to do. There are thousands of these mags out there. They are used by top level competitors and in conjunction with the top level custom builds. Like many high end firearms, such as $3000-$5000+ 2011 pistol builds that use $170 magazines, some of them need to be tuned to the gun they are being used with. Just about everything can be tuned, bent, and polished to do your bidding. I personally have no problem doing the work. Thats just how I roll. I enjoy it. I enjoy solving problems, especially when the payoff is so great. If you think about it, they SGM mag mirrors perfectly the gun that its made for. I have owned or worked on about 10 Vepr 12 shotguns. Some run perfectly out of the box with a wide range of ammo. Some need about 30 minutes worth of work with a file and some sandpaper. Some need a little more love. Once you get squared away, you get to ride the lightning off into the sunset. Or you can sit back with you arms crossed, shit all over everything, and demand perfection from the factory. Good luck to you whatever path you choose. -V
  10. It's finally here guys! My long awaited video on tuning SGM Vepr 12 magazines for flawless operation. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ss8jZo6Haz4 -V
  11. I know that the Vepr 12 safety has material on the left side to keep the funky Vepr 12 retaining plate in place tucked under the carrier rail, since it does not have a loopty hole which engages the safety axis hole like most other AK's. looks like the shotgun plate uses the loopty hole but also fits under the vepr 12 longer carrier rail. -V
  12. Yep them metal feed lips will pop off. Nothing a little super glue can't fix. There's a lot of mags that will vomit ammo when dropped. Happens alllllll the time at competitions. not a big deal. -V
  13. That's actually awesome. -V
