I don't recall my 54r VEPR having the LRBHO feature , my 12 gauge does though
If I pull the bolt on the 54r way back , it catches on something but I won't trust the health of my thumbs on it , ( M 1 Garand lesson)



if you have a tapco hammer you may want to look into the posts about bolt carrier mushrooming and fix your hammer surfaces, because tapco made a change to the original AK pattern hammer, that does cause accelerated wear to the tail of the bolt carrier.



My gun was a Mach 1 version and yes on tapco trigger assym. This gun has prolly had no more
than 100 rounds thru it thus far. will look that up

coasters are for on a desk of table to prevent cup rings, they are shaped like the magazines and are milled using the original cad as the magazine tooling... I will clarify the listing a little, I assumed coaster was a widely used term, but I suppose it could be more regional.

I kept thinking of an actual use involving the gun
and the best I came up with was a "vise block"
ok, now I get it, of course, a coaster...

please state your drink of choice for more context

Finally got out to the range today. Took about 10 minutes to load the mag the first mag. The second time , it took about 2 minutes. After that, the mag seemed to load easily . Ran 40 rounds with no problems.

Thanks for making these mags Csspecs!

got the 2 steel mags I ordered. they seat beautifully in my rifle, eager to test them out at the range. I'll say the sure look awesome, much nicer looking than the stock plastic magazines

Just got my magazines all 5 fit perfectly in my 23" manufactured 12/13 without any filing.

Very well thought out design, I don't think it's even possible to rim lock the rounds in these.

range report with my CSS 10rd steel mags, put about 100 rounds through them - no feeding issues on my '13 vepr with the chamfered bolt

couple of times if I didn't quite get the mag seated properly with the lip in front, it gets wedged pretty tight and its really tough to yank it free. probably a training issue

overall very pleased with them and will be picking up some more

I ordered only one due to cost. For the price, I needed to see it perform and I am pleased. I had zero malfunctions and do plan on buying more, if it continues to run like this.

I did find that if you put the last round loaded all the way back, it won't get picked up by the bolt. It will be seated too low. I believe that will go away completely after I shoot it enough. The edges of the ramp are rough but I could see the round starting to pop up on its own. I believe it will smooth out soon. I thought a couple pics would make more sense of what I'm talking about. Look at the rim of the casing. Minor issue, not really a problem.
