IZHEVSK, January 15 (Itar-Tass) — The rifle’s developer, the Izhmash plant in central Russia, increased rifle sales on the U.S. market by 15 percent in 2012 as against the same period of last year.
“We exported items worth $16.2 million and significantly improved the quality of our produce,” the plant’s director-general, Konstantin Busygin, said on Tuesday.
Izhmash plans to strengthen its positions on the American market and will take part in the SHOT Show, the largest gun show held annually in Las Vegas from January 10 to January 18, the plant’s spokeswoman, Yelena Filatova, told Itar-Tass.
The RWC (Russian Weapon Company), the largest importer of Ishmash, will demonstrate the whole range of the plant’s goods permitted on the U.S. market – Saiga self-loading carbine rifles and Saiga-12 shotguns for law enforcement agencies as well as Bars, Sobol and Korshun hunting rifles.
In 2014 Izhmash also plans to showcase two Sm-2 and Biathlon small-calibre sporting rifles that were specially designed for the U.S. market.
