here is a shot of the cuts.

it looks worse than it really is there is still alot of dust on it from the dremel work. When its closed there is only a small 1/16" or so bare metal visible. My blue repair pen was dry so I touched it up with black fingernail polish for now.

Its very simple use a very fine tip on your dremel or even a file will work. The one I used was a cone shape 1/32" that flaired out to about 3/16" just run the cutter back and forth till you get a nice groove cut in the weld I guess you could keep going till the full weld was gone but I did not want a big gap. After I had a well defined groove cut in the weld I held the butstock release button and gave it 2-3 good whacks on the end of the buttstock and it popped open. You could probably get away with just whacking the end of the stock with a mallet but the weld might brake at the edge and leave a nasty gash. I cut the groove to give the brake a path to follow.

Then just hit the rough spots with a file and cover the silver with black and its good to go.

Glad they didn't go to more effort than that like the Chinese did with the MAK90s back during the first AWB.

There is a gentleman on another VEPR-12 forum looking to sell his take-off folder. I am not sure if it this board's rules allow for a link to other forums but it should be pretty easy to find or PM me and I will link you. It is not me and I do not know the guy BTW, I am just passing along what I saw.
