I finally received my tactical rings from Weaver to mount my Matchdot II on my VEPR 7.62x54R Hunter . That being said I went to the range (My next door neighbors) to sight in the rifle, because mine is a 25 yard pistol range, as you can see in the background. I was very please with the results. My Ultradot has a 2moa red dot, which is not exactly a precision instrument for achieving the best results , but has the added advantage of a fast acquisition for hunting purposes out to a couple of hundred yards .

I put about 60 rounds through it with out a hiccup and every 5 shot group held under 3'', with my best group measuring 2.5 center to center, which is not bad for a AK !
The only down side and not a biggie for me since I don't reload, is that the cases are dented from hitting the edge of the ejection port. That and my wife said it was the loudest rifle report that she has ever heard.

So if your looking for a hunting rifle in a AK format with a crisp 3 to 4 lb trigger pull you will be pleased, the Russian workmanship is superber and the stock is simply beautiful !

The VEPR Hunter 7.62 x 54r is a special edition of the Russian VEPR rifle. It features a Heavy duty Fluted barrel, integrated muzzle brake for reduced recoil, matching serial # Rifle scope rail, and improved target trigger for great accuracy.
The Russian Vepr rifles are built at the Vyatskie Polyany Machine Building Plant (Molot) in Russia. They are built on the same standard as the RPK style machine guns, Vepr is 50% more reinforced than a standard stamped AK rifle. Each rifle has been manufactured using state of the art technology, effectively creating a heavier duty piece that will last through not just a lifetime but for many generations to come. The RPK-style barrels are hammer forged and chrome lined using techniques that make them four to five times stronger than a standard AK or RPK barrel.

With a tight patch on a jag and a tape measure you can find out what the twist is easy enough . My guess would be one in nine and a half or ten .
