Recommended Posts

How does recoil system on this gun work? Is there a spring and buffer?

Unfortunately this takes an M24x1 threaded brake so won't work with the ones out there for the Vepr
 

 

Can you measure the OD of the barrel? I wonder if this could be chopped and then threaded to fit the Vepr/Saiga threads.

You probably could and then also rethread for chokes but that seems like more work than reward. Parts will come soon enough. Derya already makes a comp for this it just needs to get here - along w the magwell

Yes spring and buffer in the commercial spec buffer tube

So here is something that hasnt really been shown yet ... The additional nut that comes with the VR80 that allows you to run without the barrel sleeve. Thank you Shawn for getting that to me so quickly!

This now allows for a brake to be installed on the threaded barrel.

Also got in some "mag hooks" to hang mags off my belt instead of buying caddies.

Still waiting for my 19rd mags to show up from Advanced Tactical ... I think the FedEx plane got lost1752fb51c08ec637fc1ae01967fd81dc.jpgd7eda347cef6c094f3ca0fc729464216.jpg6d69d61eb03938d2734396366edf90bb.jpg7fdf0ecc054a7795cf9bc5e30d610ca8.jpg

Thanks email is sent.  Have you found anything on mag wells? And comps?

RIA has magwells "coming" ... So I guess that means just waiting on import since I know Derya has them for the Mk12. They have a brake too so perhaps that's coming too, I don't know.

 

There is a member here that is looking at making some parts as well.

And these showed up today ... Switching stocks too. Going to a CTR with cheek riser as the top rail is slightly higher than an AR and I need to lift my cheek a bit for perfect sight picture. Might as well make it right, now.

Who's the member? The MK12 looks like the same gun.  What are the chances that Maxwell will fit?  I might just try it

I'll let them chime in. Yes the Mk12 should be the same, I just can't find the magwell available for it. You have a source?

Also was told 2 companies confirmed at SHOT they will be making triggers for this

If you want to try something, www.typhoondefense.com has the F12 magwell. The guns are very very similar (it's more like a VR60/MKA1919 in VR80/Mk12 body), so you might be able to get it to work

I handled one of these at Hayes Custom today. About the same size/heft/feel as an AR10. Too bad it does not run double-stacked mags, but otherwise very cool.

Who handles magazines for the VR80, especially the 19 round mags?
They are factory mags ... Get em from Advanced Tactical (RIAs shop)
