We picked the Vepr-12 up at noon and are almost done with a prototype. The Fury is not a problem either.

I do love the build quality of the Vepr, makes my Saiga look like crap... The Saiga on the other hand makes the Fury look like crap.

I'm actually thinking the Fury is workable as a shotgun. Its just in need of clean up, they shot blasted all the parts, which makes them rough as sand paper. About an hour with a set of stones and its smooth. I did not touch the bolt, just a few spots on the carrier and the gas tube.

Looking forward to pics. This elevates the desirability of 030/V12 in my opinion, since there was spotty reliability with the sGM mags.

The contrasting metal actually looks good. I wonder how many people would want them in the white with clear coat just for the stylezz. Maybe some of those folks buying carbon fiber magwells?

This is so exciting! My vepr-12 is on its way and the one thing I was hoping for was css magazines.

My 308 mags are awesome and am really excited about these!

Pricing will be within $1 or so of the Saiga-12. The rear lug has more machining on it, however the front catch is reduced 1 step as is the feedlip assembly.
Depending on volume and build complexity we may be able to trim the cost down $3-4 per unit on the second batch.

We are stamping supports to match up to the same width as the factory magazine, so we can have a better fit without having anything super tight.
These are going to be slightly heavier than the Saiga-12 due to the feedlip and front catch being larger. But it should not be more than about 1/2 an ounce or so.

Very nice. Do you have access to a JTE magwell? I'd really like to see how much mods are needed to work.

Not just these. All your 12 ga mags need to come in a 10 and also 12 round capacity. 10 is probably going to be the popular one due to the added weight of steel.

+1000 for the 10's. Do you think wear would be a big enough issue to warrant getting a steel magwell with these?
