My factory mags work fine. Some play in them but they work fine.

For those of you needing a less expensive option than 10 round factory mags. . .

If you have haven't noticed Tapco makes a 10 round mag for the 5.45 AK74 mag. I figured that the curve would not be an issue and the mags should feed 10 5.56 rounds without issue if they fit the VEPR 223 magwell.

I ordered two from Greg at Carolina Shooter Supply to test my theory. They fit the gun and hand racked with no problems. I'll be getting to the range for live fire testing monday. It looks like a winner!

Tapco mags are about 1/3 the cost of factory mags so if you have a rifle that you have filed the mag catch and added a bullet guide you should be good to go with Tapco 5.45 10 round mags.

Will post results and pics on monday. Where are located? I'm in rural N. Springfield. I agree 100% Illnois sucks, but knowing there is another Illinois VEPR guy here is a nice find.

Took the VEPRnov to the range to live fire test the TAPCO 10rnd AK74 5.45 mags and they work great!

Ran 50 rounds through two different mags. Not a single hiccup. At a 1/3 of the cost of factory mags you can't beet them for price and they look pretty good in the rifle.

Keep in mind if you have not followed some of my other posts. The VEPRnov has been modified to accept surplus high cap mags. So if you have a factory rifle and want to use these mags you will need a bullet guide and will have to file a few mm's of material from the mag catch for these to work properly. In doing so there are other 922r concerns that you'll also need to address because the rifle will be modified to be capable of accepting high cap magazines. As with any modification nothing can be guaranteed to work 100% every time with 100% of all VEPR's. I'd venture a guess and say you shouldn't have any problems if Bulgy Circle 10's or Beryl magazines run well in your rifle.

Here are some photos of the mag with ammo and in the VEPRnov. I did not take pictures of myself shooting, nor did I take an video because I can only do so many things at one time.

Greg has them at Carolina Shooter Supply.

Thank you to Greg @ CSS and Captain Hero for help on this project.
