Bonesteel Left folding M4 stock - Sweet

Recommended Posts

I received the Bonestel left folding M4 stock for the Vepr 12 http://www.bonesteelarms.com/Vepr-12-RPK-folding-stock-with-integral-M4-collapsable-stock-RPKFSTB.htm The stock is of very high quality materia; and well designed.

 

It turns out I had a problem installing the screw inside the housing. I called Bonesteel and Chris answered on a Saturday at 4:00 pm... Wow. He explained that he had earlier in the day diagnosed the root cause which was the screw head diameter was a tad to to large. This stemmed from changing screw vendors and the diameter of the screw head was 100th too large for only the Vepr-12. Chris also offered to send a new screw, which I appreciated but thought it would be easier to reduce the diameter of the screw head. Knowing the issue I filed the screw head edge for a few minutes with a hand file and the screw dropped in perfectly.

 

I was thinking about ordering the same stock for my SGL-12. After the positive experience with Chris, I order the same stock from Bonesteel for the SGL-12.

 

thank Chris.

I got mine today, ordered it 12/18/12. Was a left side for the VEPR 12. Have another on order for my S12, well worth the money and the wait. Very well made and amazingly light. Pictures will be a day or two, have a lot of projects going on.

Guys, we are shipping them now and starting to get caught up, by end of next week anyone who has been waiting a long time will have had theirs shipped. Guys that ordered the ak/saiga version got them before the rpk/vepr-12 version, but we are shipping them based on oldest orders first, if someone that ordered later than you got theirs already, it was a different variation. The oldest backorders now are for rpk/vepr-12 galil stocks, and we have a ton of those en route to me this weekend, I will have them assembled and shipped next week.

We had a metric Sh*t ton of orders come in on 12-12-12 our best day ever by leaps, Even though it was before the AWB scare.

DVepr! Great idea on filing the screw head as I ran into the same issue with the internal receiver screw. Would you mind snapping a shot of the the filed down screw?

 

Mine came in also:

I just put mine in a drill press and ran a file to it for awhile

Perfect fit, thanks for this HD, it really helps.

 

Update: I didn't have access to a drill press so I threw a hex bit on it, spun the screw head along a file, and it worked like a charm!

hey guys, I already posted a picture of mine in the other thread but my stock came with flat head screws, I removed the old stock and installed the new one in less than 5 minutes, because I had to rub the oil off the stock is why it took me so long

FREAKIN' LOVE IT

Its left folding Vepr model, trying to fit into Vepr 12 receiver. It feels like needs to have <~1mm taken off.

does it say RPK on the side of the hinge, the part that goes into the receiver?

I may have sent you the ak version by mistake.

No, width is 32 mm if this helps.

We sent you the wrong stock. Pm me your order # or email it to me chrisbonesteel@yahoo.com and we'll get it straightened out.

Sorry for the mistake.

I got mine in last week and installed. A left side folder galil style for the vepr 12 with the awesomely cheap $5 QD sling attachment (cant beat the price). It installs very snugly, is very good worksmanship, and aesthetically i can not say enough.

 

While there was a long wait (over a month), chris bonesteel has amazing customer service and was always available. I spoke with him on a couple differen occasions about my order and he was awesome every time.

 

I want to pick up another vepr or a saiga so i can get the AR style side folder to try out.
