  • Russian Molot Vepr 12 Gauge Tactical Shotgun w/ Welded Folding Stock

Brutus' Description

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

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.
 
Reversable ambidextrous cheek piece

*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.

This small batch has the highly desireable L.E. Only, original folding 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.

Again these are the Original Shotguns that had the Law Enforcement Only Side Folding Stock. All hinge mechanism's are still in place and stock would fold as original except that for import compliance purposes the stock has been welded in the fixed position.


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.

Like fine Russian caviar that blows u away in a Mercedes AMG kinda way ; )

Like fine Russian caviar

This is my third and final Vepr "12" from classic

1 Tube fixed Stock
For competition - tinkering with tactical add on's and fun*

2 folders
1 Tubular folder for SBS range to - waiting first for paperwork
1 Last tubular folder for home defense
(*& all with same wire / tubular stock/ adjust cheek rests and the RPK look*)

They all Shoot like butter!! all rounds!!

I've also never received guns faster anywhere else!

2 days was at my FFL

Like i said I'm Buying a 3rd Vepr / slash/ a second folder because I’m chopping one folder, once paperwork comes back from Uncle Sam!
AND at while they are still at these RIDICULOUS prices I need another one / Vepr folder for home defense, that isn't a SBS
(PS* Make sure you properly install Vepr 922r compliance kit with at least 5 parts to be safe before even thinking about cutting the weld. The weld is large so it looks like it may need a gunsmith!!!!? I'll keep you guys posted once I get to that point {also whether u SBS it or not it must comply with 922r to be a folder, just because you get a tax stamp to shorten the shot gun doesn't exclude you from 922r compliance!!} Carolina Shooter supply is the cheapest for the parts kit) however if you can get the one Ben at classic already sweated his heart out on on ; )

Only Con but cheaply fixable!!!

The only Difference between this one and the one already converted by classic is the ambidextrous safety on left side has been replaced with blank disc by factory to save money, however the part can be ordered from "Legion USA" and snapped on later, they are a US company with some nice Russian parts WOW.

I'm am so, so frikin happy Ben & Brutus lol : )

Thank you for stepping outside the box

Next on list is some vepr rifle yummy yummy yummy!!!!!


FRIKIN HAPPY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Installed 922r compliance kit from CSS (Carolina Shooter Supply) and was easy as pie!!!

Follow video On CSS website - so easy

THEN PROCEED TO CUT STUPID WELD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Got the weld cut myself with a dremel - cutting slow & cutting straight larger disc the better so u cut perpendicular to welds

replace disks if you notice your cutting on angle

long side cut the hardest

cut towards stock mostly - don't mess up receiver - cut slow

dont cut reciever!!

keep changing disks cutting slow '' on main weld and bottom

THen hold lock open ad hit a little to make it snap - use towel to avoid injury like me lvl ; )

ill be posting pics of finished vepr #3 build''

Look for devil dog fizzel
Awesome

This gun is unbelievable
Anyone who shoots it smiles like a little kid
Never had any problems 2 friends who shot it went out and ordered their own
Awesome gun! Okay condition...
Review by Zachary on 5/18/2013

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.

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 4/7/2013

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 4/5/2013

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.
Awesome
