Just got my first vep12
was wondering if zenitco had any handguards that could fit with the vepr 12
I see that some have a description that says " some modding required" so I'm not super sure what that means
Any help is welcome sorry for my ignorance

That is a good question. I’ve seen the zenitco on rifles, but not shotguns. Is it the B10 handguard you are looking at attaching?

I don't think Zentico produces an RPK style/ size. The Handguards do swap with rifles like the AES 10b RPK.

Sorry to bump an old thread. ZenitCo has an English web site and is now taking US orders, shipping from Moscow.

https://en.zenitco.ru/

I've discovered through somewhat painful research around the web that the following "RPK style" lower handguards do fit the VEPR-12 and are even being sold as VEPR-12 upgrade kits.

B-20U
B-20L
And a 3-piece kit "Sport-6" which appears to include the B-20L lower.

Note that these lowers come in 2 versions to fit the receiver shelf variations - 7mm or 11.5mm. Measure your factory plastic handguard to see which version you need.

Also note the Sport-6 kit specifically requires a gas block with a lower Pic rail in order to mount the lower handguard extension. This is explained in more detail in ZenitCo's installation video(s).

The only upper handguard I can find that fits the B-20 series is the B-19RPK. I've placed an order for a set of handguards and I'll hopefully post some updates when they get here in a month or two. Fingers crossed! :mrgreen:
