The outer sighting devices consist of a half-open foresight, which is adjustable in two planes, and a sight leaf with the distances of 100-300m.
An AK/RPK- or frame-type front sight bed can be mounted onto the rifles.
From the left side of the receiver the mounting basis for fastening the scope mount is situated.
The aimed shooting from the rifle with an open sight can be done without taking away the optical sight. The slit-type flame arrester on the rifles "Vepr" are non-removable.

| The rifles "Vepr" belong to the semi-auto weapons class.
The automatic reloading is effected by means of using the energy of powder gases moved from the bore into the gas chamber while shooting and the energy of the return spring.
The bore is locked by turn of the bolt round its axle by two or three rests (depending on a modification) during the lengthwise movement of the bolt carrier.|
The hammer-type firing mechanism provides shooting by single shots and saving the gun with the flag-type safety device.
To avoid an occasional shot due to the inertial pinhole of the primer the firing-pin of the bolt is spring-loaded.
For increasing the durability against the mechanical galling as well as rust-preventive and erosive resistance the bore and the chamber,
the gas chamber and the shaft with the bolt carrier piston are chrome-lined.
On a special order the stock can be left-handed; the sight leaf can be adjusted up to 1 000 and have a deflection correcting device; all the rifles can be decorated.
