Default Vepr FM 11 furniture options.

I have been looking for the Vepr FM M-Lok Rail for a while now with no luck. They seem to be sold out. Does anybody know where I can find one? What other options do I have for hand guards?

Or if you're rich, then Ironwood.

Buy RPK handguard and tube cover in MP or somewhere else. Quite a few sources out there. Then buy a traditional AKM stock, will need trimmed down a little to fit. Here's a pic of mine, I refinished the stock to be as close a match as I could get to the RPK handguard. With the Fat Boy grip I have about 120.00 invested in the furniture.


I have the TDI handguard on my other one. Don't make them anymore? Might place a WTB ad in the Marketplace.

The Zenitco is nice, but will still need some trimming on the backend.

Krebs is supposed to be making on for the FM 11 but don't think it is out yet. Another thread on it going.

In about a month, TDI is rolling out another batch. Worth the wait.

I initially contacted Khyber and they said they were expecting more in the future. Then I went straight to the source and got an eta of about a month from tdi.

Nope.
Khyber and a few others have sold them in the past.

Any AKM furniture will fit on a Vepr but you will have to do a little trimming and fitting on the lower hand guard to fit over the heavier profile RPK barrel and on the buttstock. Try Soviet Stocks. I found a beautiful original 60's Tula set for my Vepr. David is a great guy he was very helpful.

Vepr

Where did you source this from? How much fitting was required on the lower HG?

You would think somebody could make extended handguards that didn't require cutting off the handguard retainer. Im talking about aluminum hg not the wood akm set the above poster did.

Will the original hand guard retainer work with RPK lower hand guard?

Yes, see post 6. That is an rpk handguard using the original FM vepr handguard retainer.

Vepr
Can you please explain what you did to do the front end conversion on your rifle. Looks like you left the original sporter LHG retainer on and just added the 2-piece LHG retainer to use the AKM LHG? Were you able to use an original AKM gas tube?
