Vepr replacement stock

    Does anyone make an aftermarket stock for the Vepr that does NOT involve cutting off the receiver tang? Extra points for one that folds and/or is adjustable for length.

    I have no idea. I was stopping by to see if anyone replied myself. I don't need stock for mine, but worth knowing for future reference.

    Ace has a stock adapter, but I don't know if they have a version that doesn't require you to take off the tang.

    I think the lack of responses is because all of us AK owners are p'od that you managed to get your hands on a VEPR :)

    Did you check with the peanut gallery at arfcom? A wild bunch, but pretty smart.

    Yeah, they have a Vepr receiver block, but the only one I see requires you to grind off the tang. I'm not sure how big of a deal that is, since I really really cannot stand the standard stock, and would probably never go back...but there's something about hacking off a part of the rifle that gives me pause.
    Any idea which one, Oleg? I can't seem to find one that is specified for the Vepr.

    Thanks guys,

    I shouldn't mention that I know someone with a matched pair of 223 and 7.62x39 then, should I?:neener:

    Joking aside, couldn't you just look for RPK furniture?

    Hmm. Hadn't considered that!

    Hey hey hey! Here's another idea.


    This is an RPK rear block. Is this the same as the Vepr's rear block? If so, one could:

    1. Cut off the tang of one's Vepr, secure in the knowledge that a replacement can be procured


    2. Spend $20 to buy a K-Var RPK rear block, cut the tang off of it, and install it in place of the original. Then you can install a Ace Vepr stock without destroying anything on the original rifle.

    Anyone know if this would work? I have never built an AK, so I dunno how easy or hard it is to swap out the rear block. It strikes me as the sort of thing that could be dead nuts simple, or a complete non option, depending on how an RPK receiver is assembled.

    Anyone know?

    ...aaaaaaand, watch me answer my own question, after doing a search.

    The "rear block" is actually the rear trunnion, no? This would mean drilling out the rivets, removing the trunnion, putting in the replacement and rerivetting? Oh, and hoping everything still lines up and works?

    Probably not practical, then. Correct?

    I know where there is one for $600 in 5.45X39. It keeps calling to me but so far I have manfully resisted it's evil song. But I'm getting weaker. I need something to shoot that 10K of ammo I bought... But that buttstock is sooooo ugly.

    The VEPR is a great weapon. However, it is HEAVY! Getting rid of that bulky factory stock ends up giving you a very front-heavy weapon. I'm adding a foregrip soon.

    I'm in the process of slowly turning mine into a combloc DMR. I have a PK-AS on it right now that I'm thinking of swapping out for a scout scope on an Ultimak rail. Add a bipod and you have a pretty capable precision 7.62x39 rifle.

    It might not outshoot an M14, but it's good enough for Red army work.

    Mike ;)
