The VEPR is a versatile rifle, which makes it a solid and reliable hunting firearm. Whether you are hunting or simply hitting the range, you will want to learn more about this rifle.
Built on the same standard as the military RPK, Vepr is 50% more reinforced than a standard, stamped AK rifle. Each rifle has been manufactured using state of the art technology, effectively creating a robust rifle that will last through not just a lifetime but for many generations to come. The RPK-style barrels are hammer forged and chrome lined using techniques that make them four to five times stronger than a standard AK barrel.
Vepr .243 features a look similar to an AK, with a thumbhole buttstock and walnut foregrip. The hammer forged, chrome lined barrel, and a scope rail is riveted to the side of the receiver for easy mounting for any Picatinny-compatible scope. Each rifle comes with high quality, beautifully crafted walnut furniture as well as a rear sight with adjustable windage. As you may be aware, this rifle is sanctioned and only available in limited quantities.
