Default Super VEPR Top Scope Mount Availability?

Hi all! I've owned a .223 Super VEPR for a couple years now and recently got around to trying to get an optic mounted on it. I found this retailer as the only place to find the proprietary top mounted base that my Super VEPR can use:

http://www.rugift.com/molot-vepr-sup...eaver-rail.php

However, I'm not sure if the site is fake or what but no payment options I've been able to try work and their customer service is unreachable (thru email, chat or phone - the phone number they have listed is for a car dealership in Oregon??? lol)

Does anyone know where else to find one of these? I'm happy importing etc I just don't know where else to look. My gunbroker saved searches and ebay trolling are coming up blank too

So from my research (I have a VEPR Hunter), the VEPR super line has come into the country as either having zero side mount or like my hunter, a side mount rail that is higher than standard AK rails. From what I gather, RS Regulate has recently acquired a super and is working on a solution. What i dont know is if his super is with zero side rail or higher side rail mount. Maybe he will chime in.

I emailed RS exactly 2 months ago today about a mount that would line up center bore for my super vepr .308, his reply;

''We are working on finishing a dedicated mount for Supers- it's almost done, just trying to optimize tool paths."

Does your super vepr have a side mount or does it require the top mount?

I'm going to say his is a top mount going by how his post reads. And I never thought to ask RS if they are producing a side mount only or top or both???

Yeah mine is top mount only - thanks for all the replies tho guys! I got lucky and found someone selling one in private sale in NJ so hopefully I should be good. Still, would be nice if there was an alternative out there!

Turns out I wasn't so lucky afterall! Paid the seller but they never shipped the item and now it has been almost a month and I haven't heard from them in weeks :/ When you take a risk sometimes you lose out I suppose - so if anyone has a line on one of these for sale anywhere (the top mount) I'd love to hear about it! Thanks!
