Well I finished my AK54r conversion. I had some issues along the way and I will outline them. Some are still unresolved others have been overcome and I will share these below. I have yet to fire the rifle, I will try that next weekend and give an update at that time. Overall the look is fairly close to what I had in mind. I might use a different muzzle device after I experiment with different models. The Romanian gas tube has a different finish, so I might hit it with some engine paint and see how that looks. The Romanian gas tube I used required a lot of dremiling to make it fit. I acci
GUYS, WHEN I RECEIVED THE TWO CSS FORENDS FOR MINE AND A FRIENDS 'X54R VEPRS, IT WAS CLEAR THAT A RELIEF CUT WOULD HAVE TO BE MADE FOR THE TENON TO CLEAR THE UNDERSIDE OF THE FRONT TRUNNION AND SNUG-UP AGAINST THE FRONT OF THE RECEIVER.

GUYS, NOTHING FANCY NOR PRETTY, JUST WHAT I DID TO MINE....... OTHER THAN FINALIZING THE EXACT PLACEMENT OF THE LIGHT AND LASER, IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE GRIP POD, I THINK I'M ABOUT DONE HERE. I MAY AT SOME POINT GO BACK WITH THE PARABELLUM ARMAMENT RAILED TOP COVER FOR THE OPTIC, FOR WEIGHT SAVING AND LOW-PROFILE, BUT THAT'LL BE AFTER I GET IT DIALED IN FOR ACCURACY. ORIGINALLY HAD THE KALINKA MOUNT ON IT, THEN WENT WITH THE PARABELLUM RAILED TOP COVER, AND AFTER A BIT, ACCURACY WENT TO CRAP. THINKING, INCORRECTLY, AS IT TURNS OUT, THAT IT WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE PARABELLUM UN
