Vepr IV 5.56x45 RPK Rifle
A series of semi-automatic rifles and shotguns based on the heavy RPK receiver are manufactured in Russia. These are known as the Russian Vepr Rifles ( "Wild Boar"). They are offered in several chamberings and Vepr shotguns comes 12 gauge, 20 gauge, and .410 bore. The hallmark of Vepr rifles is their heavy RPK receiver and barrel. The barrel, gas block, and bore are chrome lined throughout. They are intended for the civilian market, and are marketed as high quality hunting rifles. Vepr rifles do not include a bayonet lug, integrated cleaning rods or tool kits, can not accept standard AK magazines, and have wooden thumb-hole stocks. Some buy these rifles to "convert" into a traditional style AK rifle, installing new pistol-grip stocks and adding tactical accessories. Early generations of the Vepr rifle were manufactured with slant-back receivers, making them incompatible with most AK furniture sets without a converter. The receivers were changed to straight-back in the second generation. Subsequent versions of the rifle reverted to slant-back. Due to this rapid change between designs, it is not uncommon to find some second generation Vepr rifles with rough, incomplete stocks that have not been sanded or painted.
This is a true semi-automatic RPK. It is made by the famous Molot Plant in Russia, which manufactured the RPK during the cold war for the Soviet armed forces. The rifle features a 23.3" heavy chrome lined barrel, adjustable rear sight, a true US made RPK muzzle break, an original clubfoot RPK stock which is welded in the open position and the original bipod. The rifle comes with 1 x 30rd magazine. Only a limited quantity available.
