Brutus' Description

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

This newest batch, just received on Feb 24th 2015 features a slightly different stock than previous incarnations. 

Previously VEPR's were imported with an original side folding stock that had been pinned into the open position and then welded in place so the folding mechanism could no longer function. This was always a bone of contention when it came to importing with the welds having to pass U.S. Customs  import requirements prohibiting folding stocks.... etc.

As such, the Molot factory finally bit the bullet and simply manufactured a straight tubular stock for use on these weapons and this group of guns features that stock.  It is a solid one piece unit that goes directly into the rear trunion with no welded open folding mechanism to be concerned with. 

It also allows them to be offered at a better price point than in the past, making this a win / win for the importer, distributor, and consumer.

Truth is the old stock wouldn't fold anyway, and these are light and strong. I may even like this incarnation better.

At this price point there is no reason not to own one of these fine weapons. They are rugged , reliable, and tough as nails. 

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 
Original Molot Competition Magazine Well 
One Original Molot Factory 5 round Magazine 
Molot Factory AK adjustable rear sight 
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) 
Cheek Rest unlocks and rotates on stock from right to left hand side for ambidextrous shooting.

* 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. 

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

Note - Any reviews on this page posted prior to 2/24/2014 will probably refer to the previous incarnation with the welded into the fixed position folding stock. 
Any reference to that stock configuration will not apply to these weapons, however, everything else regarding function and appearance should be the same.

Vepr 12 Shotgun is a BEAST!
Review by Lynwoodsfinest on 4/27/15
Quality
Buy It! Buy It! Buy It! It's the first thing in our range bag when we head out! Absolutely love this shotgun. It is super well made with chrome lined everything. It is a show stopper at the range and makes shooting clays super fun! You can shoot ALL DAY and have no pain whatsoever! Love it!

Our first trip out the box we tried some basic Remington Target 1200fps and it wouldn't cycle effectively. We read the chart at Vepr.org and we switched to Winchester Super X #6/7 shot @ 1325fps [$5.88/box Walmart] and its has run flawless ever since. My recommendation is to stay above 1325 fps until you get it good and broken in. The folks at the blog also have some other simple adjustments that can made to have it really run everything.

We shot a promo for it and some other vids as well. Love this shotgun! Buy it while you can! Thanks Classic Firearms!

I'm the same guy as the one in the video review: Molot Vepr-12 - Five, Ten, Twelve.

After purchasing some additional parts from CarolinaShooterSupply, I was able to make this gun run like a dream!

And this is all using the cheap 1200 FPS birdshot from Walmart!

Review by Terry on 5/19/15
Quality
This is well built AK product. I have Aresenal Russian and Bulgerians so I have a good example to compare to. Finish is nice with good paint. Finish at this time is unknown. After initial inspection and lube "broke in". Used 25 '00' buck from Estate, mixed in with Winchester Super Speed bird shot at 1350 fps. Had zero issues with those two. Sights were dead on at 50 using a 7/8 oz slugs. The only issue I had were two fte's with Win universal bulk pack wal-mart cheap stuff at 1200 fps 2 out of 30. When they ejected they didn't go as far. These two were both fired from a SGM 12 round (which so far has not held the bolt open) so the failure to eject may be the fault of the SGM magazine. So far I have about 100 rounds through the shotgun and all I have to say is that this has to be the coolest shotgun ever. My only complaint so far is that I wish they would use a standard AK side rail for optics.
Solid and well made
Review by David on 5/15/15

I ordered this shotgun on April 28th at midnight and received it on May 12th. Shotgun was well protected and packaged in original box. Fit and finish are fantastic!! Deep, even black finish and everything is very tight out of the box (safety and hinged top cover) it feels very well made. It has the fixed stock but that is just fine by me as I'm not a fan of folding stocks, so if you are wanting to add the folder this may not be the version for you, but you'd be doing yourself a disservice at this price point. Have not had a chance to actually fire it but I have a feeling it will perform well. I'll try to update my review after firing it some and maybe add some media.
vepr 12 both fixed tube and folding
Review by Ashethedivine on 5/7/15
Quality
I purchased both the vepr 12 in the folding tube stock and fixed tube stock. Pre warning, there are not a lot of options for the fixed tube stock. They don't have a lot of stock options for the vepr's to begin with. When the magazines are on sale, buy as many as you can afford, you will not regret it. The 10-12 rd mags are not really worth the $50 price point, unless you have a need. They so far operate well, but with a few hiccups. These do have a break in period, so don't be concerned if you have a few (sometimes a lot) of fail to fully extract. It was about 60 rounds before it became reliable. It went from - cant keep it running through a whole mag, to - cant make it not run. I also am running federal 7.5 shot 3 1/2 dr eq. 1 1/8oz shells. The magazines run both 2 3/4 and 3" shells well, the drum is only 2 3/4". These Vepr's are great rifles, well built, great features (mag well, hinged cover, self adjusting gas, thumb safety extension, ambi safe on folder version) few supporting websites available though. Hopefully they will get more aftermarket/US parts manufactures in time. If you want a shotgun that is not length constrained to round count, these are the way to go. PSA has a mag run shottie for less, but this is worth the extra. Buy right the first time and only cry once. Classic firearms is great to deal with. They do run a little behind when there are a lot of orders.
well built

The vepr 12 arrived in just over a week, opened it up and was very pleased. Haven't had a chance to shoot it but planning on having a blast. Quality looks excellent.
Thank you classic firearms
Bad ass

First off, Classic is a great company to deal with! They keep you informed through the whole process; I will definitely order from them again in the future. Now for the VEPR--this is one hell of a shotgun. Flawless fit and finish, beautifully machined. For $799 you simply cannot beat it. This tank is SOLID! Get one and you will love it. Thanks Classic!
This is a war machine !!!
Review by jeremiah on 4/2/15
Quality
Wow !!! First let me say that classic firearms were great and will recieve buiness from me in the future. Now to the good stuff. First thing out of the box you just feel the solid quality of this monster. It is soaked in oil but hey, I like cleaning my guns a lot so I enjoyed taking it apart, cleaning and working the action to smooth it up some. I ran 20 rounds of # 4 buckshot then 10 rounds of slugs work her in before moving to birdshot. Ran 50 rounds of cheap #4 game load from winchester before my shoulder called it a day.... not one issue. Completely reliable so far which I love. Also love the box style mag reciever which makes for fast reloads. Got 2 10 round mags with shotgun and the fed the machine without issue. Bottom line here folks, at 799.00 you really should not pass this up. Worth every single penny, and this is the cheapest you will find it anywhere I believe. If you are on the edge then jump, you will not regret it. Plus I really dont know how long these will be available, so keep that in mind. Easily my favorite shotgun now (sorry 870).
VEPR 12 tubular stock removal
Review by anotherdreamer on 3/30/15
Quality
Love this shotgun but want to make everyone aware that it will be very difficult to put aftermarket folding stock on this one. The stocks are riveted in position and the rivets would have to be removed at much expense and the holes filled. The gun would never look the same. Other than this an excellent shotgun and I can live with the FIXED stock. Classic is great to do business with but they need to state this on their ad.

I ordered this weapon on a Thursday, it shipped the next monday, and I picked it up on wednesday. This shotgun is really well made and it is awesome.

Classicfirearms is great to deal with and the Vepr 12 is one of great tactical shot guns out there!!!!!
Review by James on 3/22/15
Quality
I bought my Vepr on 3/04/15 and received it on 3/20/15 this was due to bad weather and Classicfirearms trying to catch up on orders. Overall I am very happy doing business with Classicfirearms and will be ordering from them again.
The Vepr 12 gauge Is everything Classicfirearms and all the reviews say it is and more. I would have to say it is one of the great tactical shot guns out today. I put over 150 rounds through it today with mixed ammo and it ran perfect!!!! . I only had one problem and it was with the magazine the metal clip that the mag release holds on to came off while shooting and drop the magizine. It was an easy fix put the metal clip back on to the magazine and was up and running again in two minutes.
This is a great shotgun and would recommend it to anyone looking for semi automatic.
Better than expected

Hands down worh the wait. Amzing firearm accuracy is outstanding at 25 yards zero in on those steel sights and destroy whatever is in the way . Great craftsminship . Most fun i had at the range since my early years !!! 6 inch black and blue from 75 slugs on my right shoulder not one complication fed those 2 3/4 slugs like a hungry hippo . Couldnt be happier with my purchase . Thanks again classic firearms not the first and by far the last transaction with you guys !!
Totally worth my 799.00
Review by Tab on 3/13/15
Quality
I got the Vepr 12 for 799.00 thinking it was the best deal on one I have seen in years. All I can say is this shot gun is pure fun and serious business if you are on the wrong end of the barrel. I had zero issues with the Winchester Double OO and Slugs that I put down range. After 60 rounds I was sore as could be though. I highly recommend a 20.00 buttpad from Wal-Mart to soften the recoil.

If you have ever thought of getting one don't hesitate and pick up a 12 round magazine as well its just to much fun.
Classic Firearms 5 stars Molot 3 stars
Review by John on 3/12/15
Quality
I just received My Molot VEPR 12. Let me say first I am pleased with the service I received from Classic Firearms. On the other hand I was less satisfied with the Molot company. My rifle came out of the box with scratches in the finish, and a spot with no finish. The finish on the dust cover release also started coming off after opening it a few times. This thing was well wrapped in bubble wrap (oblivious someone had eyes on the gun with finish issues and it still went out) The cheek weld pad is useless, because it raises your line of sight above the sights. This may work better with a rail attached site. I personally don't want to add a site,especially to a plastic rail on a shotgun. The safety lever is cumbersome, difficult to operate and is wearing a groove in the thin finish as well (may be standard for AK/RPK) overall the gun is fairly solid, but I would not call it a Mercedes Benz. Like I stated before Classic seems to be a well run company, Just don't expect a perfect product out of the box from Molot. After emailing Classic about the finish issue I promptly received this response "Unfortunately I have seen several with scratches on them. Please advise..." Still a good buy, just thought some would appreciate this info.

Hi John - Thanks for your review. As we noted to you in our email response, it is common for the shotgun to show a scratch by the safety lever. This is the best 12 gauge out there at $799.99...no close second!

Ridiculous!
Review by Bryan on 3/8/15
Quality
This thing is just beastly. I ordered mine along with 2 aftermarket 12-round magazines. When it arrived at my FFL other customers in the shop were turning heads at this thing! I took it out to the range and this thing is just powerful. It loves full 00 buck loads and slugs. Very smooth cycling although I plan on upgrading a few of the internals ( just for my own preferences, everything stock in this weapon are flawless ).

If you want a really great AK platformed firearm for home defense or for the range or for anything else really, go for this one. You can't beat it, and the price is ridiculously low right now. Awesome customer service from Classicfirearms, I will def be ordering more from you guys/gals.

    First off, Classic is a great company to deal with! They keep you informed through the whole process; I will definitely order from them again in the future. Now for the VEPR--this is one hell of a shotgun. Flawless fit and finish, beautifully machined. For $799 you simply cannot beat it. This tank is SOLID! Get one and you will love it. Thanks Classic!
    This is a war machine !!!

    Wow !!! First let me say that classic firearms were great and will recieve buiness from me in the future. Now to the good stuff. First thing out of the box you just feel the solid quality of this monster. It is soaked in oil but hey, I like cleaning my guns a lot so I enjoyed taking it apart, cleaning and working the action to smooth it up some. I ran 20 rounds of # 4 buckshot then 10 rounds of slugs work her in before moving to birdshot. Ran 50 rounds of cheap #4 game load from winchester before my shoulder called it a day.... not one issue. Completely reliable so far which I love. Also love the box style mag reciever which makes for fast reloads. Got 2 10 round mags with shotgun and the fed the machine without issue. Bottom line here folks, at 799.00 you really should not pass this up. Worth every single penny, and this is the cheapest you will find it anywhere I believe. If you are on the edge then jump, you will not regret it. Plus I really dont know how long these will be available, so keep that in mind. Easily my favorite shotgun now (sorry 870).

    Love this shotgun but want to make everyone aware that it will be very difficult to put aftermarket folding stock on this one. The stocks are riveted in position and the rivets would have to be removed at much expense and the holes filled. The gun would never look the same. Other than this an excellent shotgun and I can live with the FIXED stock. Classic is great to do business with but they need to state this on their ad.

    I ordered this weapon on a Thursday, it shipped the next monday, and I picked it up on wednesday. This shotgun is really well made and it is awesome. I cant wait to take it to the range and try it out. If you haven't bought one yet and still wanting to but haven't pulled the trigger yet, you need too.
    Spectacular !

    I bought my Vepr on 3/04/15 and received it on 3/20/15 this was due to bad weather and Classicfirearms trying to catch up on orders. Overall I am very happy doing business with Classicfirearms and will be ordering from them again.
    The Vepr 12 gauge Is everything Classicfirearms and all the reviews say it is and more. I would have to say it is one of the great tactical shot guns out today. I put over 150 rounds through it today with mixed ammo and it ran perfect!!!! . I only had one problem and it was with the magazine the metal clip that the mag release holds on to came off while shooting and drop the magizine. It was an easy fix put the metal clip back on to the magazine and was up and running again in two minutes.
    This is a great shotgun and would recommend it to anyone looking for semi automatic.
    Better than expected

    Very good quality. Easy to find compliant parts, trigger, grip, mags, forend etc.
    As reviewed, this gun will shoot whatever loads you feed it.
    Very fun to shoot, and a good deal at that price.
    Peace!

    Hands down worh the wait. Amzing firearm accuracy is outstanding at 25 yards zero in on those steel sights and destroy whatever is in the way . Great craftsminship . Most fun i had at the range since my early years !!! 6 inch black and blue from 75 slugs on my right shoulder not one complication fed those 2 3/4 slugs like a hungry hippo . Couldnt be happier with my purchase . Thanks again classic firearms not the first and by far the last transaction with you guys !!
    Totally worth my 799.00

    I got the Vepr 12 for 799.00 thinking it was the best deal on one I have seen in years. All I can say is this shot gun is pure fun and serious business if you are on the wrong end of the barrel. I had zero issues with the Winchester Double OO and Slugs that I put down range. After 60 rounds I was sore as could be though. I highly recommend a 20.00 buttpad from Wal-Mart to soften the recoil.

    If you have ever thought of getting one don't hesitate and pick up a 12 round magazine as well its just to much fun.

    I just received My Molot VEPR 12. Let me say first I am pleased with the service I received from Classic Firearms. On the other hand I was less satisfied with the Molot company. My rifle came out of the box with scratches in the finish, and a spot with no finish. The finish on the dust cover release also started coming off after opening it a few times. This thing was well wrapped in bubble wrap (oblivious someone had eyes on the gun with finish issues and it still went out) The cheek weld pad is useless, because it raises your line of sight above the sights. This may work better with a rail attached site. I personally don't want to add a site,especially to a plastic rail on a shotgun. The safety lever is cumbersome, difficult to operate and is wearing a groove in the thin finish as well (may be standard for AK/RPK) overall the gun is fairly solid, but I would not call it a Mercedes Benz. Like I stated before Classic seems to be a well run company, Just don't expect a perfect product out of the box from Molot. After emailing Classic about the finish issue I promptly received this response "Unfortunately I have seen several with scratches on them. Please advise..." Still a good buy, just thought some would appreciate this info.

    Hi John - Thanks for your review. As we noted to you in our email response, it is common for the shotgun to show a scratch by the safety lever. This is the best 12 gauge out there at $799.99...no close second!

    Ridiculous!

    This thing is just beastly. I ordered mine along with 2 aftermarket 12-round magazines. When it arrived at my FFL other customers in the shop were turning heads at this thing! I took it out to the range and this thing is just powerful. It loves full 00 buck loads and slugs. Very smooth cycling although I plan on upgrading a few of the internals ( just for my own preferences, everything stock in this weapon are flawless ).

    If you want a really great AK platformed firearm for home defense or for the range or for anything else really, go for this one. You can't beat it, and the price is ridiculously low right now. Awesome customer service from Classicfirearms, I will def be ordering more from you guys/gals.
    Great Gun

    First of all classic was awesome!!! During shipping my gun got caught in the bad winter storms and it still made it here really fast. The vepr 12 is everything that I expected from the ak platform and more. Shooting the cheapest birdshot I can find I have had zero malfunctions, the gun just plain shoots great!!!
