We test out the new VP12, a 12 gauge, AK-style, semi-automatic shotgun from SDS Imports. During our testing we will feed the VP12 a variety of 12 gauge ammunition from lightweight field loads to heavier recoiling 00 buckshot and slugs. We will also use both standard 2 and ¾ as well as 3 inch shells.
The VP12 is fed via 5 round magazines and the controls very closely mimic those of the AKM or Kalashnikov guns. This semi-auto gun has an adjustable gas system and an externally threaded barrel to allow the installation of a muzzle brake, should the shooter desire.
