Finally pulled the trigger on buying a new VEPR 12. It's my first AK pattern firearm, and my first semi-auto shotgun. I'll be taking it to the range today for some break-in TLC.
Overall I'm really impressed with it, fit and finish seems loads better than most other AKs I've been around. There's an air of "authority" when the bolt slams home that I love about shotguns, even better that it does the slamming all on its own!

I've field stripped the shotgun a few times now, checking the wear marks while cycling the action for the initial break-in. Gas ports look well centered, barrel is fantastic, gas tube, puck, and gas block all seem to be in perfect working order. At the moment I seem to have only one small issue that I'm sure i know how to correct already, thanks to this forum.

Trigger reset is sticky at best. I have worked with it enough that I don't have to pry the trigger forward anymore, so its getting better. It doesn't seem to be getting hung up on the disconnector, not that I can see anyway. What seems to happen is the trigger is getting hung up in the slit on the forward side of the hole in the receiver that the trigger protrudes through. I don't have my punch kit or files with me where I am so trigger group disassembley will have to wait. I have tweaked the springs a tiny bit and that seems to have helped.

It's a work in progress that I'm already enjoying greatly! This forum has been a huge resource and I'm glad to be a part of it now.
