Just received a railed lower handguard for my Vepr 12 from Rusweapons in Russia. I’m having some fitment issues however. The back of handguard that fits into the receiver is slightly different than the stock handguard. There are two protruding tabs that slide into the opening of the receiver that are a different shape from the original and the handguard will simply not go in. I emailed Rusweapons and they assured me that they’ve sent hundreds of these to the US and never had a problem and that maybe I should try to file down the tabs on the new handguard. Has anyone done this successfully? I figured all of these handguard have gone mostly to members of this board lol. Don’t want to start filing on this without knowing there is hope of making it work since I can probably get a refund at this point.

I have some pics to show what I’m talking about but can’t figure out how to post them in this thread. Thanks

Just take your time with a Dremel tool and reshape the tabs to look like the one that came on the gun. Check for fitment regularly.

Guns are worthless if you can't feed them....

Mistakes generally happen slower with a file as well ;) The Dremel can be an extremely useful tool, but some people get carried away with that little guy :shock:
