This semi-auto shotgun is imported in its original configuration directly from the Molot factory in Russia. The VEPR-12 is a semi-automatic shotgun designed for self-defense, hunting, and 3-gun competitions. Based on the RPK standard, the VEPR-12 shares the same legendary characteristics of extreme reliability in harsh conditions as the RPK.
