Are there any compatible handguards out there right now for the Vepr 12 in the US? I've seen like two aluminum handguards (make I believe) for about $215. Are there any other options? Polymer handguards with rails?

I wonder if the k-var saiga 12 HG's will fit on the V12. The length looks about right...

They will fit, being an exact copy of the rpk hg in length, but you will have to trim off the wings if you want to fit the upper handguard.

I am pretty sure regular polymer RPKM handguards should fit too. I'll try a set on my Vepr when it gets here.

I beleive your options for rails are pretty limited.

Image

The Krebs, Fab Defense, and Mako Group rails all appear to be the same item, aluminum and just under three hundred

Image

The Zenitco aluminum handguard is cheaper, msrp of one hundred sixty, but nearly unseen in the US

Image

and the factory molot Vepr 12 handguards with integral bottom rail, and bolt on side rails probably only available as a take off from those countries where such things are allowed.

Zenit handguard is used by FSB Special forces officers, but they buy it themselves for upgrade their weapon.

The game just changed. Cameron Hadley from Chaos just said on another forum that he was seeing what it will take to modify his new AK rail to fit the VEPR since he has had high demand for it. Hopes for a 3 month launch tome frame.

If you arent familiar with Chaos go to chaosus.com and check out their already awesome products. This will be a huge deal for the VEPR.

Several years ago I've wrote to Hogue and asked them would them make handguard for RPK/Vepr-12 similar to their AK-47 handguard that comes as a complete system including an O.M. lower with heat sheild and several Picatinny mounting options. The unswered if there is demmand they can think to make it.
