Hello all, I am a new Super VEPR owner and unfortunately I live in CA. :oops:

Here in CA the thumbhole in the stock is basically considered a "feature" just like a pistol grip and therefore the Super VEPR is considered an assult rifle and has limitations (mag capacity and mag release). I love the wood on the factory stock, but would like to know if anyone knows of any vendor that makes a featurelss or straight stock for the 223 Super VEPR?

Thanks

can you cut the bottom of the hole off, and have a something legal?

Nope, that would turn it into a pistol grip which is also a "feature". I was thinking of "filling in the hole" somehow.

I used to live in CA but escaped.

If I recall you can plug the hole with wood or rubber to be in compliance.

Of course you should check with local law enforcement first.

Yup I have seen something for an AK that is a piece of plastic that coonnects the pistol grip to the butt of the stock... ugly as hell, but it will make the weapon CA compiant and is easliy removed if needed.

What about if you cut above the hole and do some shaping to have a wood profile kind of shaped like this

Thanks Tigermoses. That drawin is exactly what I am looking for! I am no woodworker so I'd have to find someone to do it for me. I'd just destroy it...

I think I'd fill the puppy in if you're intent on keeping it. The Super's stock would be awfully thin if you cut into any part that'd make the thumbhole no longer a hole. Plus it'd be kind of tragic. I'd fill it in with Kydex or something unless you can find someone to make you an entire custom stock setup, but that sounds expensive.

It seems like what you need is a Pioneer. It'd be easier to be in compliance with that if you don't want to fill in the thumbhole on your Super. And it'd probably be a bit more ergonomic than a thumbhole stock with no thumbhole. But I couldn't say for sure since I've never fondled either. I also can't say for sure what'd be legal for CA, since I don't live there and am no expert in the laws there.

Dont forget, the rear stock can be remade from new wood by half-decent wood worker/carpenter
