Are you talking about a vepr .308? I read on another board about modifying fal mags to fit in there but you need a welder. Guy said he did 12 mags in 6 hours. I dont know if it works or not. He said you do have to shave the magwell to make them fit. If you want I will see if I can find the directions if you want.

Krebs and Robinson made the Veprs take M-14 mags but I am not sure how they did it. The last time I talked to Robinson they talked tike they modified the rifle a little but from what I did pick up in the emails and conversations is that you needed to fit the mag to that rifle and that it was not just a matter of producing mags and putting them in any rifle. I would prefer 20rders as well. The 10rdrs would be good for me if they were $20 instead of $40. When I could buy Bularian poy mags for $10.99 from KVAR last year I have a hard time believing that $40 for a 10rd Vepr mag is any thing but way to high.

I want a .308 Vepr a lot. The two things holding me back are wondering what scope mount I would use because it would be worthless to me with out one and the price of the mags. I would rather spend the extra money on a PTR and get mags for $2.99 - $10 all day long.

Are mags that hard to make? I mean can we not just find and engineer and a machine shop to produce some for us??? Or are there legality matters for this?

ETA, Or how about a drum? That would be too sweet. And Genghiskahn. I plan on mounthing a super sniper scope on mine within the next couple of months. From what I have gathered you can have the scope mount welded in place or have another pin put in it. I am considering having mine riveted in.

I have also wonderd if you had one of the mounts that used set screws instead of the lever if that would hold. You may be able to mark and divet one of the holes good??

I believe it is the actual rail on the gun that is causing it to lose zero, not the scope mount that is causing the problem.

Makes sense. I have seen a scout mount that goes on the rear sight block that looks fairly durable. I would just have to get the biggest objective pistol scope I could find.
