Sanctions End Supply of Russian-Made Vepr-12-02 Shotguns

“Based on the RPK light machine gun Kalashnikov variant, the Molot Vepr 12 (VPR-12-02 (short-barreled version above) is an original Russian production 12-gauge shotgun,” The FIME Group‘s presser proclaims (text below). “Due to import regulations, Molot products have been banned from US importation; thus making them instant collectors items and must-haves in any serious collection.” Well they would say that wouldn’t they, what with 400 examples languishing in their inventory. Whatever it costs (POR) know this . . .

the Vepr 12 begs for some serious smithing. Our man Mike Rogers at Lone Star Arms is the guy to do it. Oh, and Kalashnikov US now manufactures a Vepr-like semi-automatic shotgun, called the KS12-T (as above), which provides an adjustable gas system. Also looking for some Lone Star love.

Las Vegas, NV –-( The FIME Group, the importer of Molot Vepr rifles and shotguns, is announcing to the public that there are only approximately 400 of the Vepr-12-02 model shotguns available for purchase. Molot has the reputation of being one of the most reliable and consistent manufacturers of firearms in the industry and produces some of the most sought after Kalashnikov-based products available.

“This is it. This is all we have and it is one of the most sought after configurations of the VEPR 12 that we imported,” says Walker English of the FIME Group. “The distributor RSR Group holds all of the remaining stock in their inventory. If a customer would like to purchase one of these models, this is their last chance to do so. They need to either have their local dealer order one through RSR, or seek out an online dealer or another dealer that might have one in stock. Given the current sanctions, once these are gone, there are no more available..”

“We wanted our customers to be aware of the limited inventory levels, so that if there was a desire to own one of these shotguns, they could take advantage of this opportunity before it was too late,” adds English.

    Whoah. Stop the truck right there homie. No it absolutely does not. My VEPR 12 which I bought this year runs like a swiss watch with every load I put in it. It’s such a beast I have found smashed pellets inside the piston chamber after running #8 winchester bulk pack through it. Anyone who does not have one is seriously missing out on a great gun.

      Yep, bought one in July, when these sanctions went into effect. It runs everything 3 Dram or better, without a single hiccup. It’ll empty a 25rd drum as fast as you can pull the trigger.

    Hack the elections, this is what you get in return. Most other countries would have had a far harsher punishment for elections meddling. This will not affect their profits much I am afraid, but it makes a statement.

      Nobody hacked the elections. The reason Hillary lost was that she is a corrupt piece of shit and the evidence got out.

    So, less American money going to Russia, for the latter to spend on arming Assad and Donbass separatists. 👍
