I too would be interested in an update on the expected date on the 15rd 54R Vepr mags.

so how difficult do you think that will be since the Vepr mag is single stack and the PSL mags are double?

I will buy them if some one can make one that reasonably works and doesn't look odd.
Well, it seems that I am not the only one that want a 54r magazine base plate made from polymer or hard rubber ...
These mags are good , but are very sharp on the bottom edge and would damage any surface that you will put the rifle on , and also the hand if one is not careful while pushing it to seat correctly on the gun . I have personally cut the palm of my hand twice pushing the mags in , already . Nothing serious , but painful .
Hope that Csspecs will listen to customers and make a polymer baseplate that would solve that problem .
I would buy more of those mags if that baseplate is added .

A removable rubber end cap or “boot” that just slips over the bottom would be fine with me.

Cellophane the bottom and then 7$ quart of Plasti-dip? The wrap maybe would maybe even allow the cap to be removed?

Does anybody want to get rid of their 5 round'ers? It will help you pay for the 10 rounder's.
Looking to pick 2-4 more of the 5 round ones up.

CSS, two questions.

How are the 15 round v54r mags looking?

Are there plans for vepr 6.5 Grendel mags? If so, what kind of ETA are you thinking?

Thanks

Frank

The test samples with the larger spring reduced the failures but did not solve it..

I have another possible solution but I need a time slot to do the testing. We need to setup the body tooling, laser cut samples and make the new rear lug parts to test the idea.

Basically I want to test reducing the ramps on the back of the magazine in hopes that it will reduce the time it takes for a round to rise.

Early test sample magazines from before the 10 round magazines came out all worked in 15 round capacity, but they had issues that the ramp parts solved, so we just need to balance the ratio of ramp a little better and hopefully that gets the 15 round magazines running.

I should have time to do a test in the next month or so, if the test result is positive we would go directly to production.

Emails or forum questions are prefered.. Getting 40+ phone calls all asking the same thing eats up a lot of my time.
