    Hey does anyone know if Robinson has released its folding stock for sale on their Vepr rifles? I know production has been pushed back a few times but I see it's listed on their new online purchase section for sale currently. What have you guys heard???

    They were supposed to be ready to go last month in time for my group buy. However Robinson decided to make a few changes to them and they were pulled from production. As far as I'm aware they are not ready. I'll be there on Friday and will ask.

    I was looking at the site this week as I was finally ordering a Vepr and found the same comment about them not being ready. They were concentrating on the release of the XCR. They mentioned a 3rd party making parts that would be ready soon. Don't know how recent that update is.

    Ultimak Rail System

    Hey Correia- check out the Ultimak rail system they're offering for the VEPR now too. Let us know what that's all about. I assume it's like what's on the XCR but who knows!

    Schmitty, already checked out. It is sweet.

    It is an Ultimak rail. Very secure. There is the standard Ultimak that replaces the gas tube, and then the three sided rail replaces the standard handguard. It attaches with four allen screws to the top rail, and then again where the standard handguard attaches. I don't know if it actually is, but it feels lighter than the standard handguard.

    The rail on the XCR is part of the upper receiver.

    I don't know officially, but unofficially the rail actually seemed lighter. Not by much, but it did. That plastic handguard is a beefy son of a gun.

    Okay, nothing new on the folders. Everything they are doing is geared towards getting the XCRs out the door in the next few weeks.

    Thanks for the heads-up Corriea- I guess Robinson will just have to wait a while to get my money then!

    Ran into some snags with this, but Ace has been very helpful. New pics to come!

    VEPR with ACE LTD. USA Ultra Light Modular Side Folding Stock

    Testing everything for fit and I took this photo. I've still got to get the foam tube onto the stock and tighten everything up with Loctite.

    I used this particular stock as it was the best Ace stock to will fold to the right and still provide clearance for the bolt handle. So the gun will fire properly with the stock folded.

    Only downside is now the gun is more front heavy than before. But it lost some overall weight in the process, so that's a good thing!

    Haven't shot it with the folding stock yet. Hopefully soon. Shot great with the factory stock. They're very solid guns.
