I recently got in a 762x54R VEPR in 20.5" Flavor..

Heavy duty everything and clean..

Notice the barrel is not threaded on this Version 01 model.. Version 02 models with the Gas Block and Front Site Combo are usually threaded per WPA (the importer)..

It has a 1000m read leaf sight with windage adjustability.. the Ver 02 does not and only has 100/300 settings..

I was informed there was a heavy notch in the hammer so dropping a standard G2 trigger in can't happen.. you need to MODIFY it for the crossbar in the receiver..

I will have a modified G2 installed within a few weeks..

VEPR hammer near.. Saiga hammer far..

Image

I will be threading 5/8-24RH for a Comp/Brake by next weekend to cut the recoil abit.. bought the threading tools from CNC warrior..

I ordered a JP Cooley 324 Comp/Brake just tonight from Brownells..

Image

I got in a fresh OLD tin of 440 rounds of 54R today in yellow tip 182gr..

Image

Rifle at the range was shooting LOW.. had to crank the front post to change..

Image

Heres 2 five shot groups at 100 yards with the irons..

Image

and I did a few clays at 100 yards also..

Image

Overall VERY HAPPY..

Thanks for the range review! When will you be able to get a hold of some light ball and run through it?

Well my factory trigger was just sent out to a well known vendor to modify a G2 for me to match.. ;)

Heres another picture of another target.. this was a 12" shoot n c @ 100 yards that I used to adjust the front post.. still overall a decent IRON grouping of 6-8"..

Image

I think I wll agree (thus far) that the 182gr YT has more recoil than the 147-149 gr stuff.. though I won't really be able to tell till I get it back..

Going to try and scrounge up 2 boxes of the lighter stuff over the next week or so for the next outing..
