The Russian VEPR rifle is a hunting version of the AK rifle built upon a RPK receiver.   The VEPR comes in two styles standard or carbine, both have the same assembly yet the carbine version comes with a shorter barrel. The rifle also comes in four different caliber's .308, 7.62x39, .223 and 5.45x39.  Each rifle has a special 5 or 10 round magazine,  high capacity magazines for this rifle are not available in the U.S. due to the 1994 crime bill.   Each rifle comes in a black oxide finish, a users manual, cleaning kit, sling, rod, 5 and 10rd magazines.  The VEPR rifle has the same reliability as an AK allowing it to work at temperatures of -50 to +50 C and in any conditions.  However the rifle also has accuracy, allowing it to obtain scores of  92 points out of 100 at 200 yards.  The VEPR has a stamped receiver, however the receiver uses thicker steel which is 50% thicker than the standard AK.  Furthermore, like the RPK, the trunion of the VEPR receiver has reinforcements on each side which are not found on the AK47.   The VEPR rifle also comes with a two stage trigger for better trigger pull and groups.  As an extra bonus the VEPR also comes with a pre-installed side scope mount. The mount allows for removal of the scope yet keeping the zero of the scope when you put it back on.   To see our receiver comparison click here.  For more information on this rifle click here  Please send any information you may have on this rifle to webmaster@ak-47.net
