Good evening gents. I am thinking about having the forcing cone lengthen on my new vepr12. I have read that it will help with better shot pattern and also with felt recoil. Can you guys provide some insight to this. Is it worth having done? I’m going to keep the barrel between 17-19”. This will also be for 3 gun.

Thanks again.

Welcome to the forum, I was hoping for an answer for you. Mainly, because I've never heard the term "forcing cone", and was curious what it was.
Rock on man. Hope you get an answer, and we can both learn something. :lol:

There are so many factors in what the effect will be. Lengthening the forcing cone is not a one size fits all procedure, for example. What you choose to have done will be a huge factor with every load you run. The load you use has a lot to do with both pattern and perceived recoil too. I would sooner see if I can find a load that will do what I want done. For example, if you wanted a really tight pattern reasonably close (inside of 60 feet), you might look at some Federal loads with the Flight Control hull or a similar load. If you wanted really low recoil you could run some 980 fps low recoil subsonics. Have you tried any chokes?

Have you ran it at tournaments and it has proven to be deficient in some manner? If not, go run it with a variety of loads and make sure you really need work done before you have work done. I know, it sounds nuts coming from someone with a business that survives on doing work, but I'd rather be honest with people if there is a way to do what they want done without work. Now, if you wanted a radically short Saiga-12 build or a radically short Vepr-12, wanted to run a can on it, and wanted to cycle 980 fps subs I'd tell you there is no way to get around having a lot of work done, and paying for it ;) Run it a lot, then go from there. Most work is very permanent and there is no turning back without it getting expensive. There can be drawbacks as well.
