All questions pertain to my VEPR K 7.62x39 16" barrel

1) Does anyone know what the weight difference is between the Ultimak VEPR tri-rail and the stock synthetic VEPR handguard? I want the rail but I want to make sure that it is at least as light as the stock VEPR handguard which weighs a ton already. I want it mostly for a cooler running VEPR barrel as well as attachment points for accessories.

2) The Robarms flash surpressors, are they the same drill and setscrew method of attachment as the Robarms muzzle brakes or do they actually thread the muzzle?

3) Those that have threaded their VEPR muzzles, can you do them in 14x1mm LH to use common AK muzzle brakes/flash surpressors? Do you have to turn down the end of the barrel to thread it? I have threaded 2 of my Saigas' barrels and had to cut off the muzzle shroud with a dremel, but I'm not sure about the VEPR, very little barrel sticking out to thread.

4) Red Star Arms tactical mag latch, can this be operated easily with 1 finger to release the mag? Or is it not worth installing?

5) Any news on the Robarms folder? Is it available yet? I might just wait for the ACE skeleton stock coming out soon for VEPRs.

Thanks for any help. I've had my VEPR for about a year now and love it. I can ring a 6x8 mini-torso steel target at 200 yards every shot. My VEPR is stock except for a self-skeletonized buttstock, but I plan to start modifying it to suit my needs. Rail will be first. Thanks.

I can answer a couple of the questions

1) the muzzle break is the drill-and-set-screw variety. No threads

2) the folding stock seems to be vaporware at the current time. News on the AK47.com forum indicates this is on the back burner, due to the XCR rifle roll-out.

3) RSA tactical latch. I fired an Arsenal clone with one on it, and it didn't seem to streamline the reloading much. It seems just as intuitive to pop the mag catch with the thumb of the off hand (non-shooting hand) while replacing mags. I'd rather keep my trigger finger near the trigger during a reload.

2 & 3) The RA flash hider uses set screws. My KTR-03V has the muzzle threaded 5/8x24 which is standard for the AR-10 and most .308 cans. I don't know how much, if any, it had to be turned down.

5) No word yet on the folder. Still waiting

This is what I did for a flash suppressor.
