Vepr-12. Yes or no? Purpose?

Hey there.

Does anyone have a perspective on the Vepr-12? I am mildly interested, but would like to hear other people's thoughts on if it is functionally "good" and what they view it can realistically do or not do.

Thank you.

It's a capable semi auto. It can be fired with the stock folded (if you have the sidefolder),it's easy to take down and clean and it's optics ready. There are a few things you can do to smooth the action that are simple.

Mine tends to favor high brass 1350 fps. or hotter. It will not run reliably on cheap low recoil stuff. It can do whatever you want it to with the right loads.Mags are easy to load and are available in different sizes. It's a blast to shoot! There are brakes available that really work if you want one.

They are awesome tac shotguns. The purpose? Eliminating tangos with extreme prejudice.
