My Vepr-12 VPO-205-00 modification Part I

 

 

Several years ago Vepr-12 Molot (VPO205) made by VYATSKIEPOLYANY MACHINE BULDING PLANT (Molot) was bought due to better quality then IZHMASH production. IMHO Vepr-12 VPO-205-00 is better then Saiga-12K-030 that I was wanted to buy.

 

The "Vepr-12 Molot" shotgun is made on the basis of the Kalashnikov light machine-gun (RPK), produced for the shells of 12/76 gauge and Saiga-12-030 made on the basis of the Kalashnikov AKM. "Vepr-12 Molot" (VPO-205, 430 mm barrel) is a multi-purpose semi-auto shotgun, from other versions of Vepr-12 it differs with an available detachable flame arrester installed on the barrel muzzle part and with a mechanism blocking the trigger and eliminating from the possibility of shooting, when the stock is folded up.

 

First I bought and installed Polygon Muzzle brake and Burris FastFireII with Picatinny Protector to my Vepr-12. The muzzle brake was improve a little bit like it was made on Vsevolod Ilyns Polygon Muzzle brake.

Secondly I decided to remove Original (Molot) stock and bough & installed Folding Stock Adapter (compatible with MilspecAR15 stock) made by Molot . Then was installed DPMS 6-Position Carbine Buffer Tube, Magpul CTR Carbine Stock & Magpul Enhanced Rubber Buttpad. Bolt details, as well as, Trigger Group and Bolt Rails ware polished.

Then Original Trigger Group was replaced by RSA Adjustable AK Trigger System for Saiga 12/20 Gauge from Power Custom. After trigger adjustments were made, Safety was Adjusted For Proper Safety Engagement by Removing metal from the Safety.

Also Original (Molot) pistol grip was replaced by Hogue AK-47 / AK-74 Rubber Grip with Finger Grooves & Original (Vepr-12 Molot) Lower Hand-guard Rail System was replaced by Molot RPK Hand-guard without Picatinny M1913. Then Original (Molot) magazine release was replaced by RAM Saiga 12 Extended magazine release.

 

 

E-Tac TwisterPuc (Standard) Gas Piston was modified to fit Vepr-12.

My Vepr-12 VPO-205-00 modification Part II

 

 

Later I decided to paint my Vepr-12 by Duracoat. Original paint was removed (by 98% Alcohol & brass brush). The polished rails before painting was covered by Tamya masking tape. Shotgun was painted by Duracoat Flat Black for the base color first.

After drying the shotguns Internals ware painted two colors: Flat Black + Ultra Flat Tactical Extreme Gray and was covered by masking tape.

I changed my Polygon Muzzle brake to Guns Tuning Laboratories Muzzle Brake PSH-2 and painted it by Duracoat Ultra Flat Tactical Black.

After drying for 4 weeks the Vepr-12 was assembled. The tactical colors was look super!

Later I found that tactical colors look very super, but not practical due to ultra flat tactical surface could be easily scratch by finger nail and be stained by oiled fingers. Accordantly to foregoing bug, I decided to lubricate all the tactical colors surfaces by Break-Free CLP oil to make the surface oil stainless.

 

In addition I changed my Guns Tuning Laboratories Muzzle Brake PSH-2 to Muzzle Brake GK-01 designed by IPSC shooter Mr.Vselolod Ilyn and made byVYATSKIEPOLYANY MACHINE BULDING PLANT(Molot). Plus I installed Magpul Magazine Assist & CrossTac Ambi Sling Connector (ASC) for AR-15 collapsible stock.
