    Still a stamped receiver. But much thicker metal.

    Almost a bull barrel, not one of those whippy light

    jobs. A single stack mag, but you have choices,

    like .308, and 7.62X54R.

    Single stack mags. Expensive, limited ones- you get

    two 5-rounders(hunting) with the rifle, and 10 rounders

    have to be ordered separately-@50$. Advertised as a

    hunting rifle.

    Made by "Molot Oruzhie Ltd"-JSC VJATSKIE POLIANY

    (machine building plant) 135 LENINA STR.

    612960 VJASKIE POLIANY, Kirov Region, Russia

    Phone: (883-34) 6-13-62

    FAX: (833-34) 6-21-99

    Due to the fact that the stock provided(which is formed at the

    front, to the receiver, but simply a block wood end user carving

    project, unless the LGS shapes it first) has LOP for @ a

    person 5' 2" tall, and my LOP is considerably longer, until I

    make adaptations, an objective range report is unavailable

    at this time.

    However, I can offer that the bolt does not lock back after

    the last round, or at all. I was happy to notice the usual recoil

    from the 7.62X54R Mosin ammo was considerably reduced.

    Are you wanting to know about the current production VEPR's, like these, or the older VEPR's like the VERP-K from Robinson Arms?

    Contact "Iron Site" in Largo, FL. They form the stock, takes a day or two

    after they get it in.

    These are the Cadillacs of AK-based semiautos. They really are sporter rifles, with better fit and finish, reduced mag capacity, much better furniture, and heavier weight. They seem to sell fast and at a premium. The best chance to catch one over the counter would be at a gun show. Because the Veprs are original brand-name factory production, buying one NIB from an Internet vendor or ordering it through a dealer is reasonable.
