Greetings from Nord Skogen. New member. I just picked up a Vepr in 7.62x54R, 20" barrel. Have not had a chance to shoot it yet, hopefully soon. Ordered up some PPU 182gr HB. I plan on leaving most of the furniture stock at least during the initial paces. I'd like to get a muzzle device asap. My rifle has the pinned barrel nut and I have seen some tips on getting that off. Is anyone aware of rifles with this nut which are not threaded? Not sure if I want to go with a SVD-type flash hider or a 74-type brake. I ordered up a Midwest Industries side scope mount, now looking for a scope. I have a couple of decent Leupolds, but have heard about scopes taking a beating so not sure if I want to throw one of those on. Anyone happen to be running the MI mount with an other-than-PSOP scope?
Ive never seen a unit that had a barrel nut that wasnt threaded. You should be good to go! I think the best seller for getting the PSOP scope is the Bullet Drop Count thats built into the range finder. You are not going to find that on western reticles.
