Normal?

Recommended Posts

I noticed something on my new Vepr when installing the bg the other day that has me a little concerned. On the front trunnion, there is a line that starts about 2" in, from the rear, and goes to just under where the gas tube starts.

 

It's hard to tell if it's just a surface scratch or something deeper. I'm hoping to God it's not a crack! My Saigas don't have this in that area. Maybe Molot uses a different machining method that causes that mark on the trunnion. At least I'm hoping it's something like that.

 

Anyone else's Vepr have this mark on the front trunnion?

Try putting a small drop of Kroil or PB directly on the crack and see if it gets drawn in. I'm betting it's either a scratch or a tool mark though.

I think you're right. I tried what you suggested and the oil doesn't get drawn in. Great idea BTW, glad I thought of it. wink.png
