Tennessee's SDS Imports has something for all those VEPR 12 fans who have been down in the dumps about sanctions and four-figure prices, the new VP12 shotgun.
With a VEPR-style magazine well for all those Molot mags, the new SDS V12 hails from China and has lots of features including an automatic bolt hold-open-- a VEPR hallmark-- M-LOK rails on hand guard, a left-hand-side charging handle, and a four-position adjustable gas system that aids in cycling everything from low brass birdshot to full dram defensive and buck loads. It ships with a single 5-rounder mag.
The gun uses a cold hammer-forged bolt, carrier, and trunnion and accepts AK-pattern grips and stocks.
SDS has been bringing in a ton of good scattergatts over the years including a slightly different version of this gun in the form of the popular Lynx, a Saiga-ish 12 clone with a Bulgarian pattern side optic rail. MSRP on the VP12 is $489, which is close to the Lynx.
