This is the Ukrainian made Vepr. It should not be confused with the Russian Vepr.

Now here is something you don't see everyday. It's an AK based bullpup. Now of course it's not the only one, but there are not very many make like this. Even though the future of this rifle may be in doubt in the Ukraine, it is a very fine rifle. It is small and light and compact and so makes a perfect weapon for Special Forces and LE units. It is rather short ranged, and even though the Ukrainian government considers this a sub machine gun it fires rifle sized cartridges and so is therefore an assault rifle. This is according to Wikipedia. Other sites such as Modern Firearms agree with this. If it fires a rifle size round, it is an assault rifle. The name Vepr, means wild boar in the Ukrainian language.

Here are the specs from Wikipedia and as always please remember that Wikipedia is not always accurate about details and specifications.

Much of this information is also confirmed at Modern Firearms so maybe this time around Wikipedia pay a little bit closer attention to details.

however, most likely, like most bullpup style rifles it move the center of gravity back toward shoulder, so the load bearing is now on the shoulder and not on the off hand for the forward grip. probably just take very little time to become accustomed to firing a rifle like this. ryo little Walther bullpup not awkward at all. and ryo like to fire it using vertical forward grip now except in kneeling and prone positions.

PS you will probable like the T 91 rifle that ryo put up to show earlier.

only drawback is that it very short range. 300 meter is all. but remember, Ukrainian officials consider this weapon to be a submachine gun rather than an assault rifle. suppose range is factor of the design for this weapon. however, since it use a rifle round and not a pistol round, it is an assault rifle.
