Thanks Thekatar and RS39 for educating me. Fortunately, I have not had any problems using the waffles in my Vepr. I'd still like to get a couple of Beryl mags though. Since the Beryl is a current production rifle, the magazines are still being made. The opportunity is here for more to come in the country. RS39, if you decide that you don't want them all, I'd be happy to take a couple.
