The Vepr is built to the same specifications as RPK machine guns. The Vepr is 50% stronger than a conventional AK rifle with stamped markings. The barrels of the RPK-style rifles are hammer forged and chrome lined, making them four to five times stronger than a typical AK or RPK barrel. A 23.20′′ barrel, stamped receiver, chrome-lined hammer-forged barrel, removable muzzle nut with 14x1mm left-hand threads, left-side folding paddle stock with a trapdoor for cleaning kit, ribbed polymer handguards with stainless steel heat shield, scope mount side rail, folding bi-pod, 1000 meter sight leaf with adjustable windage, and black polymer furniture are among the features. A cleaning kit, a cleaning rod, and a 30-round magazine are included. Accepts all mil-spec 5.45x39mm double-stack AK-47 magazines. 922r is compatible with magazines made in other countries.
