Something you may have to know ;)

If you talk about your V12 it's probably HE, unless S12 is SHE. The logic is following:

All nouns in Russian divided for: He, She and It. There are some examples:

Handgun=Пистолет is He
Rifle=Винтовка is She
Carbine=Карабин is He
Shotgun=Ружье is It
Machine gun=Пулемет is He

From Russian Grammar Rules: The word (noun) SAIGA=САЙГА has feminine gender in Russian language, and VEPR=ВЕПРЬ has masculine gender.

Assuming all is above, is only way when Vepr is She, when He is a Gay.

Some marks on Russian Weapon

Вепрь/Сайга Vepr/Saiga

П (Предохранитель) = S (Safe)
О (Огонь) = F (Fire)

АК/РПК AK/RPK

П (Предохранитель) = S activate the safety (SAFE)
АВ (АВтоматический режим) = A produces fully automatic fire (AUTO)
ОД (ОДиночный режим) = R (British terminology for "repetition") provides semi-automatic fire (SEMI)

On Vepr-12 imported by AQUILA ARMS LLC

П (Предохранитель) = S (Safe)
О (Огонь) = F (Fire)

ВП (Вятские Поляны) = Vyatskie Polyany
ГИС = Государственная Испытательная Станция = State Test Station
((П)) = 12х76 Tested at 90 MPа
ВЕПРЬ-12 Молот = VEPR-12 Molot
Сделано в России = Made in Russia
