Vepr AK Tactical Rifle
The AK47 Rifle was developed by Mikhail Kalashnikov and introduced into Russian Military service in 1947 and fires the 762 x 39 caliber . Designed to be mass produced and easy to maintain in the field the AK proved itself in conflicts all over the globe and often called the Grim Reaper . The looser tolerances of the AK-47 allow it to work in dirty conditions with little maintenance . The Kalashnikov design has gained in popularity for those wanting a rugged & reliable home defense weapon or sporting rifle . The AK 74 rifle was the new evolution of the AK design and shoots the 5.45x39 round.

Why the Vepr is better than the average AK
Hammer-Forged, Chrome-Lined, Heavy Barrel. Most durable AK Barrels Made.
Hammer Forging is a process whereby the lands and grooves of the barrel are formed by hammering the barrel material against a mandrel. This process not only creates sharp and well defined lands and grooves but also leaves an excellent surface finish on said surfaces. An additional benefit is that the barrel material becomes work hardened. The chrome plating helps prevent against wear and corrosion. We don't believe you can buy a better barrel on any rifle.
Rifles based on Kalashnikov's operating system have not been known for their exceptional accuracy. The renowned AK47 rifle was designed to function flawlessly in all environments and temperatures. In other words, functionability was more important than accuracy. However, because the VEPR has a stiffer receiver than the AK47, better accuracy can be expected.
Most Accurate. Consistently better groups than other AKs.
True RPK Receiver. Stiffer and longer wearing than any other AK receiver. Made for Soviet Squad Automatic Weapon.
The VEPR costs more for a reason - It is simply the finest Kalashnikov based rifle available in the U.S. market
