IZHEVSK, January 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian arms maker Kalashnikov will supply the United States with 200,000 civilian weapons a year under an exclusive contract with munitions dealer Russian Weapon Company (RWC).
Kalashnikov Deputy Director General for Sales and Marketing Pavel Kolegov and RWC chief executive Thomas McCrossin will sign the deal at international weapons fair Shot Show-2014 in Las Vegas on January 14 - 17, spokeswoman Yelena Filatova told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Sales figures for 2013 showed that “about 90 percent of the concern’s total sports and hunting weapons exports go to the U.S.”, Filatova said, adding that the deal would extend the companies’ two years of co-operation, “in particular by widening the product range of the Izhevsk Mechanical Plant”, the gun maker's manufacturing location.
The stand at Shot Show will present about 30 models of Kalashnikov civilian weapons available for export to the U.S., among them Saiga automatic rifles, carbines Los (Elk), Bars (Panther), Sobol (Sable) and Rekord alongside sporting guns.
Kalashnikov is Russia’s major producer of battle and sniper rifles, guided projectiles and a wide range of civilian weapons such as sporting guns, sports rifles and instruments. The concern united the main state small arms manufacturers Izhmash and the Izhevsk Mechanical Plant, based in the Western Urals.
