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

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.
