Hey all, I've heard you can't use the scope rail on the verp II's because it won't let the scope hold a zero. Anyone know if this is true? I've been thinking about picking up a PSOP scope and want to get some info first.

There seems to be some mixed opinions on this, I have a VEPR .223 and optics have not been a problem.

From Robinson Armament website:

There are several mounts for the VEPR. Some of the original VEPRs imported (mostly in .308 and .223 cal. and sold with wooden thumbhole stocks) came with a scope mount with integral rings. These scope mounts were calibrated (aligned with the bore) to the rifle for which they belonged.

The scope rings of the original mount were very close together so the scope could not be moved back and forth to adjust for eye relief. The old mount was also not very stiff. Consequently, there were some accuracy problems, especially when installed on the higher recoiling .308 VEPR rifles.

The New VEPR mount is a Weaver type mount which can accept a variety of sights and other optical devices. The mount attaches the the left side of the VEPR on the scope attachment rail. The mount was designed so that it is as low as possible without requiring it to be removed to disassemble the rifle for cleaning.

If you read the Robinson web page it was only refering to .308s and I believe thay have stated they have fixed this problem. My 7.62x39 and .223 work fine.

The scope on my Vepr is dead on. Never had any problems with it not holding zero.

The VeprK and the Vepr2 are the same thing with the K barrel being shorter. That said I have a .223 VeprK and a 7.62X39 Vepr2.
