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!!!

Note - The Vepr in 7.62x54r caliber provides extreme accuracy at extreme distances.

With the side rail, mounting a scope is a breeze. And surplus ammo is plentiful and inexpensive.

Comes complete with 2 - 5 round mags.....

Review by Juan on 3/18/2016

I was lucky enough to buy one of the last ones and i was afraid that I would have a defective one. Not the case, the furniture was impeccable as well as the rifle. As always great costumer service, keep it up guy. You'll have a costumer for life. Keep it up

PS: please, hope you get soon the 20's or 10's rounds magazine, 20's preferably.
amazing

Gun looks and shoots beautifuly. Put all sorts of different types of 54r and not one hiccup. Definitely a head Turner and a cannon.. iron sights were perfect right out the box nailing 6 inch targets at 100 + yards. Only thing I noticed is when the shells eject they might be hitting the dust cover and scratching finish. Can't wait to deer hunt with this baby
What a great rifle!

Just received my VEPR 7.62x54R a couple days ago and immediately ran 40 rounds through it. LOVE IT!!! Not only is it a great looking rifle, it is powerful with not as much recoil as I had expected. Very accurate out of the box (although only had access to an indoor 25yrd range) Second firearm I have purchased from Classic Firearms and both times great service with excellent prices!
Ordered Vepr in 7.62x54r.

I've been wanting one of the Vepr 7.62x54r rifles with 23" barrel for some time. Classicfirearms.com had the best price and I have had great service with everything I've ordered from classicfirearms.com. Rifle came to my FFL and was in great condition.
Thank you for running a great company with integrity.
Very pleased

Just picked up my vepr,beautiful rifle everything seems to be as advertised,didn't give 5 because I haven't shot it yet but sure it will be. I've had,my share of AKs from wasr to saiga this is the nicest one I've bought without dressing it up. Service and shipping from classic gets 5 stars as well, I look forward to more purchases from them!

I read many reviews on Classic Arms. The forums are full of Opinions. But here is Mine and of a 1 in 10. They Get a 10. Customer Service on phone was 100% A+. Spoke twice o phone and both times they were very pleasant and i got off phone satisfied. Service now days is not like it used to be.BUT these guys were on there game.Packed well,on time,at a great price.
Ok now about gun,Vepr 54r with 23" barrel shoots as well as my 1800 psl.Groups are the same.Put a Kalinka Optics Scope on her. Dialed it and at 300 yards I am doing 1 1/2" groups.I am thinking about buying another.
THIS THING ROCKS!

I BOUGHT THIS THING A FEW MONTHS AGO.
HAVE PUT ABOUT 750 ROUNDS DOWN RANGE WITH IT.
THE ONLY THING BETTER THAN THE LOOKS IT GETS AT THE RANGE IS HOW WELL IT GROUPS AT 200 METERS!!!
WORTH EVERY PENNY OF THE MSRP...TOTALLY AWESOME AT CLASSICS GREAT PRICE!!!
THANK YOU CLASSIC, AND THANK YOU VEPR!
Love This Rifle
Review by KDUB on 12/28/2015

I bought this rifle a couple of years ago. Put a custom trigger and muzzle break on it. Just love it! Accurate for three rounds out to 400 years with 8" groups (heated barrel depletes accuracy). 0 fails so far and I'm probably 200 rounds into this gun.
deadly accurate right out of box
Review by Adam on 12/7/2015
Quality
Bought this rifle back in may and right out of box I took a 250 yard shot open sights at a piece of paper and nailed it on the first round. This rifle is built like a tank with its bulged trunnion and cold hammer forged barrel it will take abuse all day long for generations to come.

The Finnish on the metal is also top notch and looks great with the SVD stock set I finished in shellac. The action of the rifle is smooth and not clanky like the M92's, or dracos from Century....Overall Vepr did a great job on every aspect of the rifle and I have no problems spending 850$ on this AK variant.

pros: Shoot very well, built solid, built to last
cons: I cant afford more of them
An argonomic assassin. Open sight deadly.
Review by Rocky on 9/26/2015

Very, very easy to put on target or hold over. Recoil is handled well in this set up. Just a real pleasure to shoot.
awesome rifle

Man what a cool rifle and beautiful stock shoots like a dream and spot on out of the box !! The only bad is about the scope kit not really good can't seem to get it dialed in tried multiple times!!
A Bruiser
Review by Vegas Dave on 7/22/2015
Quality
Have had this rifle to the range three times since purchase. It is an attention getter, from the thumbhole stock to the booming sound of the 7.62 x 54r round. There is no mistaking, this is a man's gun, through and through.

I felt a little bad for the guy next to me who was showing his girlfriend how to shoot a .22. She was clearly in awe of the boom, boom of the VEPR. As to performance, I was knocking the hell out of self healing plastic target positioned at 100 yards.

No failures to fire in 400 rounds so far, but a couple of failures to load from the after market 10 round mags I picked up. This was remedied by removing a round and keeping nine loaded.

The lack of available, quality, high capacity magazines is my only complaint. But that is it. With its 23 inch barrel and cheap Russian ammo, you can practice your marksmanship at a very affordable price.
Excellent
Review by Louie on 7/8/2015

Great to shoot, accurate at 100 YD range haven't access to 1000 Yard range but no doubt this is the best rifle, Bang for Buck. I waited about a year before it became available. Worth the wait.
