At the recent forum "Army-2020", a lot of new products in the field of various weapons were presented. A separate conversation is about the rifle weapons... To attract attention and increase opportunities to expand the market for products, manufacturers take a variety of steps. One of the steps is the creation of models of Russian small arms under the cartridges characteristic of the NATO military bloc.
One of the new products presented at the forum was the AK-19. The Kalashnikov concern created this weapon under a 5,56 caliber live cartridge, which is attributed to the NATO caliber. The goal is clear - an attempt to catch on to the weapon market, which was usually out of reach.
