FIME Group imports and distributes Russian Molot VEPRs in some really cool calibers. Or at least they used to. When Russian sanctions expanded in June to include these firearms, the supply was cut off. At NASGW we got the lowdown on the remaining inventory at FIME Group, which includes a bunch of really unique configurations and calibers.
From multiple options of walnut stocks to synthetic and steel stocks to various barrel lengths, the selection is deep. Plus, FIME’s VEPRs are available in a handful of U.S. calibers in addition to your typical 7.62×39, 5.45×39, and 7.62x54r. Calibers like .223, .308, .243, 6.5 Grendel, and .30-06. I had no idea VEPRs in these calibers existed. But they do, and inventory is limited to supply on hand.
Also available: 12 gauge VEPRs in multiple configurations. Apparently FIME has a ton of the 12″ factory short barreled shotgun (SBS) versions with side-folding stock seen at bottom in the photo above. Yes, that’s an NFA item so it’ll take a $200 tax and the whole Form 4 registration process to take ownership. If you like fireballs and smiling, though, it just might be worth it.
