Brutus' Description

Bigger, Better, Badder, The Russian Veper shotgun is the Gold standard in imported 12 guage semi-autos.

I love the Saiga's, and at their price point, they can't be beat. But if you are one of those rare individuals that will
not settle for less than the best, then give the Russian Vepr12 a try....

The Vepr 12 gauge shotgun is known around the world as one of the finest IPSC and 3 Gun shotguns availble.
In fact, everything about the Vepr is heavy duty. Take a look at these features.

Hinged dust cover with a picatinny rail 
Original Molot Polymer Pistol Grip 
Original Molot Polymer Lower Handguard 
Original Molot  Polymer Upper Handguard 
Molot Self-Regulating Gas System 
Molot Laminate Buttstock 
Original Molot Competition Magazine Well 
One Original Molot Factory 5 round Magazine 
Molot Factory AK adjustable rear sight 
Molot Original AK enhanced safety lever, single finger operation 
Factory chrome lined barrel, chamber, receiver shaft and gas chamber 
Factory last round bolt hold open 
Factory threaded barrel (thread pattern is the same as Saiga) 
Factory machined bolt assembly, gas blocks etc. (not cast like other AK shotguns) 
Original Military Standard ex-folding stock permantly locked in the open position to meet U.S. compliance.

*Note - barrels are threaded and have a thread protector threaded onto them from the factory...
The thread pattern is the same as the Saiga Shotguns and any of the numerous different Muzzle Breaks on the market for the Saigas will fit the Vepr. 

** Also Note - These High quality Molot shotguns started out in Russia with the military style side folding stock on them.

Prior shipments have had the original stocks replaced with Wood AK Stocks or other alternatives in order to get the weapons into the country.
This shipment has the highly desireable original stock still attached but it has been factory modified to lock it into the out or extended position.
Stock includes a very comfortable cheek rest and it looks great. It is very difficult for me to take good photo's of an all black weapon. There is just not enough contrast. But trust me, this is one fine looking piece of machinary.

To see this weapon is to fall in love and to shoot it seals the deal. 

*** In reference to The Gas System It differs from the Saiga and in my opinion is a very nice upgrade.
 The Saiga 12 has a gas system that can be manually adjusted to allow for the firing of different shells,

i.e, Hi-Brass, Low Brass, Bird Shot, Buck Shot , etc.

 Unlike the Saiga , The Vepr has a highly advanced self regulating gas system that automatically
 adjust to the recoil of the weapon allowing this weapon to feed virtually all types of shells without incident.

In Fact, We have tested this weapon with all different types of loads and powder charges and even mixed different loads within the same magazine.
In all cases the weapon functioned flawlessly. 

All of the Veprs come in an original Molot Factory box with manual and warrenty information. 

Finally,  we now have in stock very affordable 10 and 12 round mags for this weapon.

Awesome gun! Okay condition...
Review by Zachary on 5/18/13
This shotgun is an amazing piece of machinery. I have put 300 round of 00 buckshot and 50 rounds of slugs through it without a single hiccup and I have only cleaned the weapon twice. I have not tried to shoot anything with a muzzle velocity lower than 1200 fps as I have read that such lower velocity rounds could cause the gun to not cycle properly.

If I was just reviewing the weapon's function and enjoyment factor, it would receive 5 stars. However, the weapon came with a chipped stock near the receiver attachment area. I know these stocks are post-production addition to make the guns 922r compliant, but it was still a bit of a bummer to see for 1500 bucks. Also, the stock was missing a sling attachment.

Overall: 4.5 stars if I could give it such a rating.
Fantastic but needs a different stock.
Review by Stephanie on 5/15/13
Love the shotgun, but the stock leaves a lot to be desired.
Review by Capo on 5/5/13
Great Folks @ CF.Super fast service.The VEPR12 Is a fine fine shot gun..Go for the 12 round magazine fun weapon to shoot @ the range & home defense.Give a few hundred rounds to break in you will have a tank in your hands..thank you CF
Beyond Awesome!!!
Review by jeff on 4/7/13
I received my Vepr a few weeks ago, but due to weather and work, I didn't get to shoot it until today. All I can say is OH MY GOSH!!!!!! All the reviews and articles I read and all the video's were dead on! I finally found and bought a couple ten round mags. The Vepr cycled them perfectly, and I was only shooting 7 1/2 shot. I will be buying an aftermarket stock. The one that it comes with is too short for me, which I noticed someone else said in a video review. This gun is so fun, you can run several $'s worth of shells through it in a very short period of time. When I got home from the range, breaking down and cleaning the Vepr was a breeze. I highly recommend this weapon to anyone that wants the best home defense weapon money can buy, or to anyone that just likes to shoot for fun. If you hunt, the Vepr would be awesome. I don't think I would recommend having a 10 or 12 round mag anywhere near you while hunting though!
The ultimate 12 gauge! but 2 critiques
Review by shane on 4/5/13
First impression,...I saw the original factory box from russia which is nice. Next opened it up and it was wrapped in oil paper,I saw the magazine, the rifle, and some sort of a pin tool,that looked like part of a cleaning tool kit,which dissapointingly, wasnt included. The Rifle itself was beautiful, and precision made! Far above any Ive seen before. The finish and fit were perfect!. On the other hand, the tiny rough wood stock was very small and looked out of place. And for the money paid it should have come with a plastic composite full size type. This gun is intimidating and has awesome features,the bolt release button and last round bolt hold open, along with the self adjusting gas system are what sets this apart from the other types on the market. Glad Classic got them in stock for us.

Bad A**
Review by Kevin on 3/4/13
Out of the box, this Shot Gun is hands down higher quality than its competition. Solid Feel, Heavy Duty Mag, cant wait to try it out.
The folks at Classic made this transaction very pleasant during a difficult time.
And my previous transaction was even better!
Just Perfect
Review by fault zone on 3/3/13
Wow - what a nice job Classic did with these. Shipped box-witin-a-box so the original Ruski box was not all banged up. Product looks great. Top rail was straight. Top $$ yes, but top quality too.
Just as advertised
Review by Randy on 2/22/13
