Just ordered a new stock today for my 54R VEPR. Pretty cool looking plus it is designed for the slant cut receivers and includes a pistol grip. This is the first time I have seen this stock available. Hopefully the scorpion recoil system helps with the recoil.

I also ordered the Carolina Shooters Supply AR slotted Handguard to go with the stock.

I received the CSS slotted hand guard and noticed it didn't have a step on the rear tab and the bottom hole didn't align with the stock hole. Called CSS and explained my issue and come to find out they accidentally sent me the wrong hand guard. Great customer support though. They sent me the right hand guard within 15 minutes. Now it fits great. Had to use the included adapter to clamp to the barrel as usual. Feels really solid.
The ATI stock fits great too and was a breeze to install. The so called recoil system is just a rubber butt plate.
Anyways here is a pic.

You guys need to stop putting those disgusting bubba stocks on those glorious Russian rifles. Seriously.

Will do, as soon as you make a conventional looking wood stock (non-thumbhole) for the slanted-rear Vepr and put it on the market for the thousands of Vepr owners. Srsly. I have my CC in hand, waiting on your no-doubt awesome solution.

Nice work! Looks like that ATI stock fits nice and tight and flush with the slant?

Matt from Ironwood Designs posted this in another forum:

"Also posted below is our new AKM butt stock for VEPR angle cut. No need for an adapter as the stock fits the receiver as it sits.
Part shown was an earlier test cut, and does not show the pistol grip relief cut, and does not show the sides of the front of the stock
trimmed down, closer to the receiver side surfaces.

This new AKM VEPR butt stock can be ordered at any time. We have yet to post it on the site, as I am waiting to do large scale site additions
after we have new, better pics. We will also be working on a std. AKM lower hand guard for VEPR, as I am aware of a lower HG conversion retaining
cap, so hang tight for those parts as well."

The pics he posted:





Not my thing, but someone else might find it appealing.
Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.
Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

Thanks LM and halleluja too, 'bout time....but now that you mention it, i'm all set on my Vepr's too....tempting though for the .308....but I know there are some folks out there that will really welcome that kind of stock.

ETA: E-mailed Matt, something that according to his site currently is NOT recommended, lol, so taking my chances there, but the stock intrigues me, Ironwood certainly makes some nice stuff, was thinking of maybe trying the stock pictured, with a conventional grip (possibly wood as well), and instead of going with a conventional AK handguard set-up, using his SVD handguard instead, I think that would make for a great looking rifle. If he responds and the price is within my means, i'll give it a try and post pics/review once it is done.
