So, I've been a SD extensively-trained, long time avowed 870P pump BELIEVER/competitor; that'll never change.

But WTF!?!?, suddenly this week I get a wild hair and I'm a soon-to-be (mailed the USPS MO today on a pre-ban priced deal) owner of a NIB VEPR 12. I'm justifying this by saying it'll help my 3G scores, and since I also run only Saiga and VEPR hybrid carbines. But I admit there's something primal/guttural about running Ruskie hardware . especially amongst all those fn prissy 11-87/Baretta/Benelli and ARs ;) . And, admittedly maybe because I had a ball-retracting close call with a charge and only a 10mm long slide 1911, this probably will become a hog's worst nightmare when I hunt/fun-shoot across the river in AR.

So I bought a VEPR 12-02 to liberate the folder and I'll do 922R compliance while I tweak the trigger and most-probably shorten the barrel and pin a comp. Anybody have FIRST HAND experience to recommend a custom gunny to do the latter? I want a A1+ job from someone who has real creds.

I'll surely have more questions as this project progresses. I thank y'all for your initial FNG tolerance....

Everything you ever want to know is on YouTube channel Vepr12 all day. Gunsmithing look up Evlutionz under vendors. Does outstanding work but takes so time to get to you but worth the wait.

You will LOVE this thing. :twisted:

Being a pump guy, you need to learn and understand ammo pressure (dram equivalent) if you want to not be embarrassed when your pump ammo chokes the weapon. Pump guys tend to run lightest loads, where these require more to cycle. Fear not. It isn't difficult to learn - it's in the sticky about ammo by GunFun. Keep in mind the gas operated piston system eats a lot of recoil. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Evlblkwpnz (Anthony) of Evlutionz is the way to go. Not cheap, but fantastic work. I've run a 13.5" perm. chop/choke/comp from him, and it is the best configuration to be had in my opinion. He's the only smith I trust to pull it off and a really cool guy. Just have to pay more than you think and give the man time to work his magic. He's a specialist and flooded with work.

Thanks. I'm really stoked by my new adventure.

First, yes, smart HD pump guys do love LEO-PROVEN low recoil (Federal LE132-00 and lately LE132-1B) fight stopping ammo.

And, again, this IS going to pop-my-cherry as to learning a semi-auto shot gun. But I'm formally (Engineering) "edumacated" and 25-yr Real World seasoned. I learned/plinked .177 to .22 for northern groundhogs/woodchucks as a kid, shot High Power and still IDPA with (handicapped?) 1911, and trained/competed with 870s and AKs. I get the dram calculation/correlation to reliable operation kinetics.

So, I've looked at various I-net/Forum references to Evlutionz, (interesting?) Dissident Arms packages, and a personal Marc Krebs') recommendation to Mike Friend of Firing Line in OK.
If anyone has personal experience with Dissident, who I've emailed about discussing my desired custom work, please relate their opinions/references.
