23" 7.62x54r vepr with bolt hold open
Posted 23 December 2012 - 08:19 PM
"So messing with my Vepr today I found that it might have a bolt hold open feature when charging. If I am charging the rifle at a point after the hammer is cocked use light pressure on the trigger and I hear another click then the charging handle is locked in the rear posistion and will only move forward again if you pull the handle all the way to the back."

yeah I don't know. Just tried it out on my v2 20.5 and couldn't get it to do it.

works for me and I know more than dozen people with X54s that have that thing working

what version? but I would think the guts would all be the same. I could be doing it wrong too

well I too now can confirm it has one. just finally figured it out. it indeed looks like its supposed to, as the bolt rests on a notch that looks like its meant for it.

Can someone post pics of this? With the top cover off, would like to see what everyone is talking about.

Hope these help, hard to get pics of what is going on. But basically its part of the bolt carrier that hooks on to part of the trigger assembly. After you pull the trigger it hops of and latches together and doesnt go forward till you rock it all the way back.

I just tried it, it works with my 20.5".
I have a feeling not many people will manage to figure out how to do this little trick, but it's a nifty feature.
Sure takes a hell of a lot of force to pull the bolt back after doing this though.

SAME ON MINE, MY ONLY QUESTION, IS IT SUPPOSED TO BE DOING THIS OR IS IT JUST A HAPPENSTANCE ALIGNMENT/CONFIGURATION OF PARTS THAT ENABLES THIS?
WPA, YOU COPY??

Oh hey this is nice. My outdoor range requires for actions to be open at cease fire, and I already busted a cap of a marker that I used to keep the bolt open.

I got mine to do this...once. From the pissmeoff factor, I'm guessing that this is a happy bonus for some, but not an actual design feature.

Well, I played around a bit more tonight, and was able to consistently get the bolt to stay open. I would still find myself fishing around trying to find the sweet spot to get things to drop in place, and I think if I had a full magazine I probably would eject 1-2 trying to do this.
I think it's a worthy thing to do, especially if you frequent those ranges that insist on an open bolt during cease fire...

i always put the bolt open with no mag in the gun, once i have the bolt in the open position, i put in the mag, that way i dont throw out a few rounds trying to find that sweet spot.

This thread is like watching Jerry Springer, but with shotguns.
"Could it all be a bad dream, or a nightmare? Is it my imagination, or have we lost our minds? It's surreal; it's just not believable. A grand absurdity; a great deception, a delusion of momentous proportions; based on preposterous notions; and on ideas whose time should never have come; simplicity grossly distorted and complicated; insanity passed off as logic; grandiose schemes built on falsehoods with the morality of Ponzi and Madoff; evil described as virtue; ignorance pawned off as wisdom; destruction and impoverishment in the name of humanitarianism; violence, the tool of change; preventive wars used as the road to peace; tolerance delivered by government guns; reactionary views in the guise of progress; an empire replacing the Republic; slavery sold as liberty;"

Even though it has an actual BHO feature, I tried the above trick on my Saiga-12...worked on it as well.

Works here. Have to play with it a little but it does work.
