19" barrel right?




Reports from the Russians, such as PapaZ, is that no - AK Handguards do not fit.

Unknown if they can be fitted, I imagine it will vary from system to system.

There are specific handguards made that fit the Vepr 12 but most are not in the US.

Someone linked a one that would fit a Vepr 12 available in the US, but keep in mind not all vepr fitted guards will due to the barrel size on the 12 etc.

So there is one that i was told would fit. Maybe check out RPK handguards.

Also Carolina Shooters Supply is supposed to be testing out the products they carry against the Vepr12 and advising customers what fits/doesn't, etc.

To those who got the laminated stocks, did it come with a butt plate?

The 'Butt Plate' if you can call it that, is just another thin piece of wood screwed on to the back.

So no, not really.

I paid infull and sent the FFL within hours of the deal posting on Atlantic. Tracking number arrived a bit ago. If it doesn't make it Friday, my FFL is closed until Tuesday.

My laminated stock is in really nice shape (looks new) and I actually like the black stain. Had I not wanted a collapsible stock on mine, I would have thrown a polyurethane finish and some hardware on the laminated stock and used it.

I ordered one from Aim Surplus. They had 11 in stock last time I checked. Where is the best place to get mags at?
Link Posted: 10/24/2012 9:49:50 AM EDT
SGM Tactical has the mags. They are after market though.

They are working on them still. They are not available just yet.

If you must have more than 5rd, at the moment your only choice is the Izzy 8rd which are expensive and hard to find. As far as I know, anyway.

Has anyone had issues with Atlantic? So far my experience leaves much to be desired.

What are the details of your experience?

Poor phone service, placed an order for the Vepr 12 last week. Checked my Atlantic account for an update but there was no information. Called to confirm they received the FFL I am having it shipped too, and to order Mags.

That was my first time calling, and my last. When buying stuff I like to be able to follow up on my orders via phone without getting treated poorly.

I am sure, once you get the product it will be great.

I've never called on the phone, but at least one person the have repping them on another internet forum is dismissive and even arrogant about customer service issues. I guess it doesn't surprise me to learn that poor attitude bleeds over into phone service as well.

I've called them at least twice bugging them about my VEPR 12 and mags. They were more than accommodating and courteous. My only complaint is that I just now got my shipping notice and I see these other kids posting their VEPRs and how it looks freaking awesome. (Not really a complaint but just because I WANT to be the first kid with the new toy!)

My VEPR 12 shipped from Atlantic today; it'll be at my FFL on Friday

You are mad about their CS, they offer a refund, you get more mad.
I don't understand your logic here.
Link Posted: 10/24/2012 1:41:02 PM EDT
I have never had a problem with them. Like most I want my new toy also, but the value add Atlantic is providing with the stock is worth it, plus the mag for those of us that pre-ordered under the deal.

The US mags not being ready isn't a surprise. If they were, I'd expect them to have problems.

I am not mad. I just think they could have a better attitude about servicing their customers.

When someone brings up such issues, instead of trying to understand how they might improve communications and therefore customer satisfaction - instead they take a 'we don't give a F attitude, and if you don't like how we do things take your money elsewhere'

I am not denying that is their prerogative, but I think it's a piss poor business practice.

GK-01 is the gold standard, but it's big... so it depends on what you are using it for.

The lower will need to be relieved to allow for the 12ga barrel. Upper should go with little or no modification.

Atlantic's top shelf IMHO, wait till you deal with some of the real douche dealers out there that will leave you scratching your head like WTF. Seems like the gun industry has a steady flow of assholes and babies.

I'd say enjoy it and be thankful we got a shot at these Vepr's in this config...

I second this.

You also have to take into consideration, on top of the vepr craze, its 2 weeks to election, panic buying has been in full effect for a while. In other words they are busy as hell.

ETA: i get my 2 veprs next tues. Just in time for all hollowed points eve, hell yea!
