The supply of Molot Vepr 12 model shotguns is decreasing, with only 400 Vepr 12-02 models available for purchase, distributor FIME Group says.

The semi-auto shotgun is imported directly from the Molot factory in Russia in its original configuration. Based on the RPK standard, the VPR 12 shares the same ruggedness as the RPK with  self-defense, hunting and 3-gun competitions in mind. Due to import regulations, Molot products have been banned from import into the US, causing some gun owners to scoop them up as collectors items.

“The distributor RSR Group holds all of the remaining stock in their inventory. If a customer would like to purchase one of these models, this is their last chance to do so. They need to either have their local dealer order one through RSR, or seek out an online dealer or another dealer that might have one in stock. Given the current sanctions, once these are gone, there are no more available,” said Walker English of the FIME Group in a press release.”We wanted our customers to be aware of the limited inventory levels, so that if there was a desire to own one of these shotguns, they could take advantage of this opportunity before it was too late.”

The 12-gauge shotgun features a 19-inch barrel length with overall length measuring 38 1/2-inches. The Vepr ships with one 5-round magazine.
