This semi-auto shotgun is imported in its original configuration directly from the Molot factory in Russia. The Vepr 12 is a semi-automatic shotgun designed for self-defense, hunting, and 3-gun competitions. Based on the RPK light machine gun Kalashnikov variant, 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. 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.

Total Length: 42 in / 1070 mm
Barrel Length: 19 in / 483 mm

Are the ones with the metal stocks going away? I'm wondering if I need to buy one of those if I don't want this new kind. I feel like it needs a wood handguard to match the stock.

It may be that the rear block (trunnion) on this one is a tang version that may accommodate a regular AKM buttstock or a folding variation of an AKM buttstock. 922(r) may apply and check your laws.

Of course, the VEPR having a slant back receiver may not accommodate this. There are also angled adapters that could provide a solution, however, I would let them get these pre-orders filled and check the forums as opposed to being the guinea pig.
