Brutus' Description

These are gorgeous!  These are colossal!  These are stupendous!  These are really, really, nice!

The Russian Vepr is a premium grade semi-automatic rifle with premium high grade walnut wood furniture, heavy target barrels and a more traditional styling.  We have had these in the past and they were extremely popular.  Now we have small quantities of various calibers and variations back in stock.  No collection is complete without one.  Each Vepr rifle has a side rail for easy scope mounting - High quality checkering on grip and forearm.  

I love these rifles!!!

Manufacturer's Description

The VEPR is simply the highest quality rifle based on the Kalashnikov design. The VEPR Rifles and Carbines are sporting arms based on the famous Soviet designed RPK. VEPR rifles are manufactured at the historic Vyatskie Polyany Machine Building Plant (a.k.a. "MOLOT").

I have wanted a Vepr in 5.56 since i purchased my first Robarm in 05'. As per usual it was perfect out of the box and received in record time at my FFL with its fraternal twin brother in 5.45. The conversion was flawless and this thing is a beast. See my picture with the Krebs fore end, Canis stock mount, MFT stock, Striker grip and Bulgy flash can from AK-Builder.com. At $649.99 these are a steal, I am even cool with having paid 699.99. Couldn't be happier, HUGE Fan! Range time was indoor so at 25 yards it was more for function than accuracy, but it ran like an top of the line AK, with minimal recoil. If this is your first AK, the rear sight on the Vepr's are the tits, all of mine have averaged tighter groups with iron sight my RRA M4's. Thanks Classic! Wil
Good value for the money, one of the best AKs around

I had a Robinson Arms Vepr back in the day, so when I saw Classic selling these I had to have one. I am very pleased with mine, but it did not take long to get fed up with the stock. IF it had more useful swivel attachments, it would be acceptable, but the thin wire sling swivels are practically useless. Forget about mounting a bipod, and there are no aftermarket vendors for fittings.
I am in the process of converting it to an AK configuration, which is adding $$$ to the investment.
That being said, the Vepr is a great firearm, as accurate (not that we buy an AK for that) as any under $1500, and durable as well. I would also recommend the Type 1 sights over the Type 2, but that's just me.
Add a scope rail and you're in business!
Perfect

Youtube review to follow, just got mine last night, and it is perfect,everything, fit and finish, function and included accessories. The wood furniture is so nice that i am having second thoughts about aftermarket options. Accessories included, cleaning kit, mags and cleaning rod. In case anyone is wondering about the front trunnion style, both of mine (5.45 & 5.56) were round, in case you wanted to convert them to accept hi cap magazines by installing a bullet guide, which are super cheap. Also, threads are LH 14-1 for a muzzle device. Beautiful rifles, smooth function, I am getting ready to buy another. The are the best AK's for the money.
Beautiful

This rifle is beautiful simply put. I live in Mercer county NJ, not many Kalashnikov pattern rifles pass through LGS around here, when they do they are typically WASRs, when my FFL received this rifle and took it out of the (very well packed) box they were stunned with how beautiful the furniture is and the quality of this rifle as was I. This rifle is leaps and bounds above any other Kalashnikov. The rifle is tight, clean, beautiful wood, and great finish on the steel, and I love the feel of the thumb hole stock. I have a WASR, and Saiga, and a friend has an arsenal and the quality of the VEPR seems far superior. Very happy I sold an AR to get this firearm. Can not recommend the VEPR enough.
