Welp I scratched another itch. I swiped my cc at classic firearms for a vepr 12.

Any of you guys have experience with these? Ive read mixed things about out of box reliability concerning low brass cycling. From what I have read its been more positive than negative.

For you owners and previous owners, what should I know about these?

UPDATE:
Going to test her out tomorrow...My last 4 digits of the SN are 6666. The last 3 digits are stamped on numerous portions of the gun...It must be an evil black gun. :th_hmm3grin2orange:

"Low Brass"?

1. You didn't buy that thing to hunt quail or shoot sporting clays, did you?
2. Any shotgun that ferocious looking requires it's owner to buy a MEC.

It should eventually cycle low brass fine... Mine I had to "slick up" the action with some sandpaper. once all the paint is off of the parts that make contact it will run smooth as butter!

Congrats on your new VEPR 12!

BTW I may be wrong about this but I believe you need to do your 922r parts count before using Those SMG hi cap mags.


666 is just a number that comes after 665 and before 667.

What Donnie says is correct about cycling. As far as 922r it is always better to be safe than sorry, but to date I have never heard of it being applied to an individual owner after importation. The American made magazines count as 3 parts, base plate, follower & body. But again it is always better to be safe than sorry so if your welded stock happens to break and allow it to fold, a few American made parts might be in order.

You may be right, however, I found a slip of paper that comes in the magazine package. On it is a list of information. one of the things listed is "Mags above 5 rounds are intended for use in 922r compliant shotguns."

This came with the magazine, and not the shotgun. Weather it is accurate or not I do not know, I just thought I would throw that out there. :)

Interesting shotgun. What's the recoil impulse like?

In lieu of cerakote, you ought to think about having a good auto detail painter dress it up with fire red and brimstone yellow flames!!!

Just goes to prove that Anaheim CA is Hell on Earth! :<)

This version of the VEPR12 doesn't have the welded stock as did previous ones. Would definitely get a muzzle brake for it.

Good idea!

Mec? Whats that?

Not bad at all very tolerable.
For the OP, I posted this last year. It may be of some interest.
