How do the .308 Vepr and Saiga compare to each other?

 

Apparently, the bolts are different. http://forum.saiga-1...ndpost&p=948229 What is thi significance of this?

 

What else is different?

VEPR are made on thicker RPK receivers using thicker barrels.

 

Vepr is the Commercial version of MOLOT RPKs

The receiver of the VEPR is thicker, but I seem to recall that in the special case of the 308 caliber, the Saiga actually had the thicker barrel. Csspecs has both weapons; maybe he can clarify for us.
