MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass) - The Kalashnikov concern said it is unable to meet hunters' demand for the popular Saiga rifle worldwide due to a shortage of personnel.
"The demand for Russian weapons has increased by several times in foreign countries," director general of the concern Konstantin Busygin told reporters at the Weapons and Hunting 2013 exhibition on Thursday.
According to Busygin, the company can only meet 25% of demand for certain products, such as the Saiga hunting rifle. "The current demand is at 200,000 units a year. We cannot meet it yet. We have production capacities but lack personnel," the director general said.
