IZHEVSK, March 15 (Itar-Tass) — The Izhmash plant will increase exports of Saiga guns to the United States, Izhmash Director General Maxim Kuzyuk declared, commenting on an exhibition of hunting equipment held in Nurnberg at which Izhmash presented its production.
U.S. partners of the Russian enterprise, who visited the Izhmash exposition, confirmed a big demand for the Izhevsk -made rifles and Saiga hunting carbines in the United States. Given a growing demand for the guns the U.S. side has corrected the contract on the guns' supply; now Izhmash will supply 50 percent more guns to the United States every month, apart from the other ordered exports of sports and hunting rifles, Kuzyuk said.
The Saiga- 12 model adjusted for the need of law enforcers has been exported to U.S. police departments since 2012. Izhmash deals with the Russian Weaponry Company in the United States, its main partner on the U.S. market.
During the Nurnberg exhibition the Saiga-12 gun aroused a strong interest of law enforcement structures of Poland and Australia which ordered a number of Izhmash guns for their own tests.
In the framework of the Nurnberg exhibition the Izhmash managers held talks with their partners from Germany, France, Norway, Great Britain, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Greece, the CIS, Pakistan, Canada, Malta.
Izhmash displayed a total of 63 pieces of its production at the IWA & Outdoor Classics exhibition; eighteen newly designed guns -Saiga-12, small caliber rifles, a traumatic pistol made on the basis of "Vityaz" pistol- machine gun drew particular attention of the guests of the exhibition.
All Saiga-12 configurations are recognizable as Kalashnikov-pattern guns Izhmash is now exporting through the Russian-American Weapon Company. The Saiga 12 technical characteristics conform to the optimal standards needed to ensure law and order in urban conditions.
