I just put a Romanian forward pistol grip on my .223 Vepr using the Carolina Shooters Supply (CSS) "HANDGUARD RETAINING LOWER BRACKET SAIGA 308 AND VEPR RIFLES" http://www.carolinas...bracket-308.htm
The bracket is very light weight and appears to be made out of low quality potmetal. This might work ok for lower handguards that don't have pistol grips, but I am thinking it won't last long with my handguard that has a pistol grip.
I like the forward pistol grip alot and want to put one on my .308 Vepr, but I want a better bracket. Dinzag offers a bracket, but there is no info on his website about what it is made out of. By the pictures of it, it appears to be the same as the CSS one. It may be better, but I have no way of knowing.
Any ideas where to get a high quality bolt-on lower handguard retaining bracket?
