Default Why no Romy or Bulgarian AK12ga ??????

If Wasr and Bulgarian AK guns are ok for import into the US. Why dont they import some AK 12ga guns ? Is it cause they dont produce them or other legal reason. I gota say if I were Mr WASR or Mr Bulgarian AK or any comblock AK gun maker still importing to the US id be looking at the the Chinese like wtf why dont we sell our AK12s in the US market thats hot for AK12 platform guns. Consider this ; can you think of any other country/nation that in the civilian market buys more AK47 style guns ? Id love to see or own WASR AK12ga. Disclaimer: the previous was just a brain fart.

I donít think either country does an AK based shotgun.

The question "why" has to be asked?

There are still a good number of NIB VEPR-12s here in the USA. They are good guns but not amazing sellers. Then you have the various Chinese copies which are dirt cheap, if not always great quality.

Izhmash and Molot could send us semi AK shotguns because they already hd production lines up and running, so it was no big deal to do a few mods to turn out a US version.
But Cugir or Arsenal would have to completely tool up from scratch, which would cost a good bit of coin. The rest of the world is still buying Saiga 12ks and VEPR-12s from Russia, so the market would really just be for the USA....which again is already pretty full with older S12s, Chinese copies, and unsold V12s.

And speaking of Russia, I am not sure of the patents or copyrights Izhmash or Molot might have on various AK shotgunny features. I could see them making a big stink if someone else started making near-exact copies of their guns. China could give to fucks of course, but European nations do still care about Russia and Russian factories.

In the end, probably just too much risk and too little potential payout?

Or could just be that the VEPR-12 was only banned half a year ago and that Cugir is about to announce its 12g AK here at ShotShow 2018 haha, wtf do I know? Just speculating is all, cheers.

Russia has better patent protection on the Saiga Vepr shotguns than AK rifles. The Federation was in the process of copyright of the AK rifle just prior to the beginning of Donbass conflict

Likely due to limited military application over the rifles they produce.
