Last time I talked to somebody at Rob Arms (I believe it was Logan) i was told that they were working on a 20rd mag from the manufactuer.
I'd check with RobArms first before doing a conversion.Who knows maybe they finally got something new going.

No they dont have any yet. and even when they do get them you will have to send the guns back to them to have them modified to accept the 20s. then they wont accept the 5s and 10s anymore. Due to the fact that they can not import any rifles that accept high cap mags. If they just had the russians make longer mags it would make the guns illegal to import. That along with the galil mags being half the price of the vepr mags is why we came up with the idea of the conversion.

The more I think about it the more I think I can live with 10rders in .308 but would prefer 20rdrs. Still have not decided what I am going to do though. Robinson told me on the phone that if it was done properly and quality mags were used m-14 mags could be used but O guess they are to finiky.

Krebs said that the m-14 mag conversion had been done but wasnt real reliable due to the variations in m-14 mags. From what I gathered. They would do the conversion with the mag that was sent to them and then other mags wouldnt work in them. So thats why they stopped doing that conversion.
Atleast thats what Smallerstick told me

Heck, how about just getting some mags period?

Why is it that people who are "vertically challenged" always feel the need to lash out at everyone else?

Well I certainly have to agree with you on that one. Ten round mags for under $20 would be sweet. After all they are injected plastic for crying out loud.

And they have a folding stock for the Vepr coming, and the XCR is coming, and more Veprs are coming since they are out.

I have no confidence in them developing the high cap conversions, at all. And I am one of their bigger dealers, who would LOVE to see them do it.

It is such a shame that Rob. Arm. has such a great gun and apparently no real interest in it. There is so much wasted potential there.

My Vepr is the .308 wood thumbhole stock type 1 and I use it for hunting.
If I had a later black type II model I think lack of hicaps would bug me more.
I gave up on the 20 round mags along time ago.
Cheaper 10 rndrs would be nice....
