I was requested to keep ya'll up to date.

Current status is:

Magazine body tooling is complete

Follower tooling is complete

Floor plate tooling is complete

Retainer tooling is nearing completion

Front catch is pending updates


Rear catch is designed.

Welding equipment is about 60% complete.


Little bits of information.

As far as we can tell a loading tool of sorts will be required, as the feed lips are a little too much of a pinch zone to be loaded by hand, I have very manly hands and I say they need a tool. Basically a stick with a cupped end is enough. I have a couple designs to play with once we have a test model. We will have them available at a low cost and likely free with a set number of magazines.

The feed angle has been tested and does not seem to vary from one round to a full capacity of 15 rounds, which means we have a good design.. We need to confirm actual feed vs. our generated prints and we can finalize the design.

If you have any questions post them here or on the AK files under sub section Vepr/saiga

Will the 10 round magazines be available at the same time as the 15 round magazines? (For those of us in anti-gun states)

I'm starting to get jazzed for these to come out! I'm already squirreling away money for them. :D

That is the plan.

First run is tentatively slated as 20-25% 10 round with the remaining volume 15 round.

Csspecs,

Could you post some dimensions of the ten and fifteen round magazines? I'm curious if they'll fit into any of my existing magazine pouches. Thanks! :)

So we are waiting for the tooling to cool off from tempering for a first test with all the parts.. They are every bit of 450 degrees right now.

I would be very surprised if everything just worked. More likely one or two parts will need an adjustment.
