Default Anybody have a Vepr slantback converted to squareback?

Pics please if you got one! Any input you have would be great!

Thinking of doing this to mine, I hear Matt Yeaman's work is top notch, would love to see pics.

yep, sure do. Should be an easy job for turbo, I'm an absolute novice welder and I did this one as well as a m77 and some other projects. I've seen some really cool stuff he's welded up in the past

Matt did my M77 slantback. It took a while but it's perfect. Even had him scrub the stupid "read the owner's manual before use " engraving . Now I just need to have the receiver reblued

Well the Vepr slantback triangle stock finally came back in stock at Circle 10, so I bit the bullet and ordered one to try, and as per usual on AK accessories the fit left something to be desired, but it was a fairly uncomplicated fix, some small taper shims under the 'legs' and another on top between the tang and stock, but got to say i'm stoked with the results now, looks great, happier now with the stock set-up than any of the others i've tried.

+1 for Matt

He did both an M64 reweld for me as well as squared off my slant-back VEPR. I have a .308 slant back I've been meaning to send off to him but alas, other projects are ahead of that one.
