I have been unable to get a definitive answer to this question:

Will SGM 7.62X54R 10rd VEPR mags (SGMT76254R) fit a 7.62X54R Hunter?

The SGM site says "no", but I've seen at least one web video where the user says they work fine. I'd like additional confirmation one way or the other.

I have no personal experience with the 54R VEPRs of any kind, but the factory & csspecs magazines worked the same in my .308 Hunter & standard 16" Version 1 .308 VEPR. I have no doubt that the same would go for the 54R VEPRs.

Update: All of the 10rd SGM mags fit fine unloaded into my Vepr Hunter. I loaded one mag with 8 live rounds topped by 2 dummy rounds (which are a bit shorter) and that mag fit fine and fed the dummy rounds fine with manual cycling. I have not had a chance to get to the range yet for live fire.

Good to hear! Is there any public land out in the country around you where you could take a few shots safely and then leave? :lol:

Not really close, but I will eventually get to my range (880 yards) and verify function.
