Vepr .308 Win. caliber rifle, Walnut Stock

Built on the same standard as the military RPK, Vepr is 50% more reinforced than a standard, stamped AK rifle. Each rifle has been manufactured using state of the art technology, effectively creating a heavier duty piece that will last through not just a lifetime but for many generations to come. The RPK-style barrels are hammer forged and chrome lined using techniques that make them four to five times stronger than a standard AK barrel.

Vepr in .308 Win. caliber features a look similar to an AK, with a thumbhole buttstock and walnut foregrip. The hammer forged, chrome lined barrel, and a scope rail is riveted to the side of the receiver for easy mounting of a side scope.

Each rifle comes with high quality, beautifully crafted walnut furniture as well as a rear sight with adjustable windage.

    This is the real deal. Chrome lined hammer forged barrel, thicker stamped receiver, reinforced RPK trunnion.

    I set her up with a Midwest Industries side mount and inexpensive Vortex Diamondback 3x9x40mm scope. The 40mm scope bell just barely clears the front site with Weaver branded X-high picatinny scope rings. The mount visually appears to be on center and the MI side mount does not touch the receiver's cover.

    I shot ZQi Turkish surplus and was easily able to acheive sub 2" groups shooting off a bag rest at approximately 75 yards. I could easily ring a 10 inch steel gong at 175 yards. I had even better luck with Hirtenberger bi-metal surplus and achieved sub 1" which may have been luck but at that point I packed up and went home with a smile. I want to try the Tula since I found some at 35 cents a round and I hear some rifles perform well shooting it.

    The wood furniture, thumb hole grip is very nice, and length of pull and cheek/chin weld is adequate but not perfect. I do not anticipate I will tart this one up like my now import banned 7.62x39 Izhmash with folding Magpul Zhukov and MI aluminum fore-grip. The VEPR appears to be a more refined and even better made rifle in comparison.

    The VEPR functioned flawlessly with the CSSPECS 20 round magazine. I decided the 308 is a better long term option with cheap import 7.62x54r (corrosive) surplus drying up and the potential for future import bans. The action on the 308 is shorter and the cartridge probably allows for better feeding and extraction especially using 20 round magazines.

    The muzzle is threaded with cap and pin welded in place. I may attempt to remove and install a break but the recoil is not too bad. The eye relief on the Vortex scope is not very forgiving and I did smack my glasses once or twice. Sling hardware is undersized and weak.

    My first time with K-Var and shipping and service were excellent. I may save up for the 7.62x39mm VEPR if budget allows.

    My advice is trade some debt based digital binary currency units of exchange for this rifle while you still can and don't look back. It is a great utilitarian rifle and a great value with many refinements for an AK platform.

    Peace and God Bless!
