Muffman 54 Posted December 14, 2012 Report Share Posted December 14, 2012 I purchaced one of these for my Vepr 12. Not 100 % but think it is drop in ready!!! I say not sure.. well because I'm not sure. I have never installed one of these on a normal AK and I can't find a video so not sure if I'm OCD or it is good to go. This first pic is with the first piece installed. This is the piece I thought I was going to have to sand or file to fit. But it is swimming in the Vepr 12 receiver. Clearly they designed this not to fill any AK make's rear trunnion completely. One thing I am unsure of though is how deep it sits inside. But seems like any make would be the same in this department? Any thoughts on this? Here is with the second piece installed. Because the first piece sits in so deep the two parts never make contact. There is a slight gap between the two. Once again, not sure if it is designed that way, or if this is the problem with running an RPK receiver. However I thought the only difference was thickness, so not sure why that would chance how deep the first piece sits in and how the two pieces would make contact. Once again, any thoughts? Either way the screws easily reach from the second piece to the first piece, And the back of the second piece is fully supported by the rear of the AK receiver all the way around. So even if it was designed for the two pieces to make contact, I don't see how it would be a deal breaker for them not to, unless it puts stress on the screws cause there is a small gap? Sounds reaching.. think I'm being OCD and it's good to go. Just add blue loctite and call it a day. I mainly bring these issues up because their website lists all these AK's the adapter is not compatible with, and don't get why. Not an AK guru, but maybe cause all of these models either don't have a rear tang cause they are folders, or the receiver is not a 90 degree cut, so M4 stock would be wonky and pointed up or down at an angle. Also, I ordered a buffer tube but it's not compatible with the Rifle Dynamics adapter. Doh. Ordered a Vltor shotgun buffertube not thinking. The Rifle Dynamics needs a standard M4 tube for the tang to go inside the tube, and Vltor shotgun buffer tube has a metal wall filling in the begining of the tube since shotguns can not use a buffer. Either going to drill a hole for the tang, or send it back and get a standard tube.... Anyways.. thought I'd share. This might be a new big thing for vepr 12's...
