    trouble with vepr 12 conversion (folding stock)

    I'm converting my VEPR 12 so the stock can close. The problem is the stock won't latch when folded. The rubber buttpad hits the forgrip, not allowing it to latch. I think I have 3 options:
    (a)trim the latch
    (b) trim the hanguard
    (c) trim the but pad

    I don't really want to trim any parts on the stock. The handguard is easier/cheaper to replace. It will look weird though. Is there any other opions.20160205_102924.jpg

    Mine folds and latches with no problems. So I would look at the internals and adjust there before "trimming" or doing anything tot he buttpad or handguard.

    That's great advice. I don't have my gun handy, is there some adjustability on the latch?

    i don't believe there is any adjustment to any of these parts.
    the guts on folders are serialized. i have a feeling if these were destined for the military and to be used as folders they would have trimmed either the little latch that sticks out or the part of the folder the latch catches.
    if you ever try swapping parts around on rpks or even ak-74s you will see things don't always work w/out some fitting.
    like the stock will open to far and not be straight or things wont latch up tight or in your case wont latch open.
    i think these parts are all sort of custom fit to eachother from the fctory so what little yours lacks from latching i wouldn't be afraid to do some dremelling or filing on the latch itself that is sticking out or on the part it latches to. just an opinion for sure think good and hard about the way things work before removing metal!

    Thanks, all parts involved are hard to replace and expensive. That's why I needed some advice, so I didn't do anything stupid. The numbers on the stock setup don't match the numbers on the gun.
