U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Once a common contender in the shotgun/rifle community, the recent sanctions imposed by the USA has disallowed further imports of the Molot Vepr. Originally from Russia, these products were introduced to the USA by passing compliance fulfilled by FIME Group. Vepr 12 shotguns are semi-automatic designed for self-defense, hunting, and 3-gun competitions. Based on the RPK standard, the Vepr 12 shares the same legendary characteristics of extreme reliability in harsh conditions as the RPK.

The fire control group allows for semi-automatic shooting and the safety is an improved version of the standard AK safety selector, which has levers on both sides of the receiver to operate the safety.

Additional features include: The ability to insert magazines straight into the magazine well (AR style) without the need to cant the magazine (AK style); RPK style Windage adjustable rear sights; Windage and elevation adjustable front sights integrated to the gas block; Picatinny rail incorporated into the hinged dust cover (allows optics mounting); and chrome lined chamber, barrel, gas block, and bolt carrier operation rod for increased corrosion and wear resistance.
