Default Vepr importer

Was there any importers other than FIME? Or did they import all and disperse from there?

Mine was imported by WPA (Wolf Performance Arms).

^ Those are the ones I know, WPA and FIME. FIME was the only one which imported the Vepr FM’s. I think Robinson Arms may have imported some in the earlier years, unless those were ones sources from FIME or WPA.

Interesting. Would be cool to get some numbers from WPA as well and see which rifles are truly the rarest in country

What city and state is stamped on your rifle with WPA? Trying to track them down and I keep ending up at Wolf Ammunition

Most were imported under WPA. FIME only started importing just earlier this year (2017). Robinson Arms are the more rarer models out there.

Ya, FIME became the exclusive importer just before the ban.

My .223 has an Arsenal Las Vegas engraving, started out as an older model slant back sporter with no threads on muzzle. Aside from the VEPR .223 engraving on the front of the other side of the receiver, these are the only markings:



here's a pic from the auction I bought it in:
