Yes. But not a conventional single stack.

The platform has great potential but it needs something more original to get the attention needed.

 

As of 11/1/15 we have started making a single stack. We hit a wall with the other design.

Bump! Lahti Saloranta has 20rd double to single so it can be done... Fine with me if there has to be a dummy round or two in it to make it function. I'd be excited about even a double stack 10. Metal single stacks would be nice too but I'd prefer short as bench shooting is how I will be using mine.

I would love quality 54r mags. Even just 10 rounders. I really dont want to invest in sgm mags if these are being made...

Last I heard they were finishing S12 magazines. Csspecs said that they were close to finishing the 54r mags. Which I hope is true and just around the corner..Feel like they have been putting the magazine off to see if the 7.62x54r Veprs were going to stay around and be popular enough to sustain and hold a market.

Project is delayed. Waiting on acquiring a Haas VMC to complete the project. It has a lot of complex milling that is over our current capacity to cut. 

 

The VMC is only about $45K (yeah only)... So its taking a little time to build up the funds to buy it. We have several product roll outs coming over the next few months that should increase our budget significantly.. I'm not a fan of buying machines on credit, since this market is prone to random changes that cannot be anticipated.

You guys have a reputation for a quality product, and I'm hopeful you will eventually get your milling machine. If this project doesn't get derailed for any circumstances you'll have tons of folks buying them.

Hi CSS, any updates on the mags? Hope you guys are still working on these and haven't decided to ditch the project.

Im not buying a 54r untill css makes mags for them. Im not very impressed with whats available and I know css would have a quality product. A confirmation that these mags are definitely coming out would be nice, I would start putting money aside.

They've confirmed over on the AKFILES and on here in various threads that they are going to be making them. It's just a matter of time now.

Yes but as originally envisioned as not a single stack that is what it has to be due to the geometry of the round.

We flip flopped on this. We came back to a single stack as the first product. The non-conventional magazine we had issues design the tooling within our work envelope. 

Which is why I won't take deposits on products. Sometimes you hit a wall and can't get over it for a while.

 

Single stack tooling IS being cut right now.

Still moving. We had a lot of trouble with worker fatigue on the M77 production runs, so we are making the tooling more complex to prevent this issue.

 

Prying a part out of a tool is not a big deal until it is X 5,000. Even with the best gloves and padded tools you start wearing through your fingers.

So a simple part like a floor plate that would have been two pieces has 8-10 machined parts plus die springs and shoulder bolts. We will likely gain all this time back on the first run.

 

I've been meaning to do a video update but orders have been keeping me running.
