Guns Limited Number of VEPR Shotguns Available Dave Merrill November 21, 2018 Join the Conversation Back in 2014, President Obama banned the importation of many complete Russian goods to the United States in response to Russia's invasion of Crimea. Saiga shotguns and rifles were on that list. Three years later in 2017, Molot VEPR shotguns and rifles were added to the list. If you time travel way, way back to RECOIL issue #12, we had an article specifically about VEPR shotguns. We followed that piece with an update about accuracy with slugs. If you're interested in one of these, file both under Required Reading. FIME Group has obtained a limited number of VEPR shotguns that were imported prior to the ban, and have now announced them for sale. Here's what they have to say about them: Molot shotguns and rifles are in limited stock due to the U.S. sanctions. There are already a number of models that are out of stock, and there is no telling how much longer these guns will last. Vepr 12 shotguns are semi-automatic, magazine fed and chambered for 2 ¾ or 3in 12-gauge cartridges. Utilized for hunting, competition shooting, and self-defense, Vepr 12 shotguns share the same legendary characteristics and reliability Molot is known for. Built on RPK receivers and incorporating key features such as a last round bolt hold open and a straight insert magazine well, these firearms provide peak performance even in the harshest conditions. For obvious reasons, they will be limited in number. But if you were considering a magfed slav scattergun, this is your chance to snatch one up. They are available with fixed and folding stocks, in factory short barreled configuration, and even an awful thumbhole stock model. Prices range from $860 to $1,700.
