"Under the patronage of NATO": "Kalashnikov" brings new AK-19 to the world market

Kalashnikov is bringing the new AK-19 assault rifle, developed under NATO patronage, to the world market. The premiere for foreign buyers will take place from 21 to 25 February at armory exhibition IDEX-2021 in Abu Dhabi. This was reported by the press service of the Kalashnikov Group of Companies (GC).


The new AK-19 was developed on the basis of the AK-12 assault rifle, which was adopted by the Russian army in 2018. Caliber - 5,56X45 mm, the assault rifle has a lightweight telescopic butt of an original design, a new diopter sight, a flame arrester with the ability to quickly install a silent and flameless firing device, a Picatinny rail. The barrel length of the new machine gun is 415 mm, weight is 3,3 kilograms.

Kalashnikov clarified that the AK-19 was developed under NATO patronage and is fully oriented towards the external market.

The assault rifle has already aroused interest among a number of customers in the Middle East, using cartridges of 5,56x45 mm (...) in hot humid climates and dusty conditions, the AK-19 will provide the efficiency of all-day use, reliable operation and unpretentious maintenance

- said the concern.

According to Dmitry Tarasov, General Director of Kalashnikov Group of Companies, the first applications for the AK-19 assault rifle have already been received. Among the first potential buyers are the countries of the Middle East. Other details have not yet been reported.

        The telescopic butt of the original design in the huts does not dazzle ... The Americans will only try to copy ORIGINALITY in the factory for themselves ... hi

            A Russian machine gun is more expensive, but if it is made of wood, it’s possible to split a box of zinc cartridges from a tree, light a fire so that ..... the head of the enemy ...

            Very interesting. These are the people who put "-", except in pictures and exhibitions have seen these products? Or maybe they exploited it?
            I am ready to substantiate what I wrote about the AK-12 (and its variation -15, and the "brother" -200), because I dealt with them quite closely. And he did not suck his opinion out of the finger, but based on personal experience of dealing with these "miracles" he deduced.
            On what basis do dear colleagues formulate "cons" ?!
            We'll have to, apparently, prepare a series of articles about the crafts "KK". Not advertising, but complaints. To which the concern, occupied and exhausted by athletes, enthusiastic "me-so-visors" and "effective" managers, does not seem to care.

    Nothing personal, just business ... Milking an old dead cow until she dies ..... Where are the new calibers and cartridges ??? We are waiting for the Americans to get hold of .. It's time to b and invent something ourselves! Not tired of singing an ode to the Kulibins ...? 7,62x39 is rather weak, 54R is old and wretched ... You need to arm yourself, and not put shoes on the Papuans ...

      Sniffing the Papuans while sniffing is a great idea.
      And so far only the Chinese are inventing calibers (5,8).

      Are there new calibers and cartridges in NATO? 6.5 Grendel? So he is not accepted by the army. In NATO armies, the same 5.56x45 and 7.62x51.

              I just know Russian. The ellipsis is not a question.
              The ellipsis is placed to indicate the incompleteness of the statement, and the signs are question and exclamation points, if they are required by the nature of the sentence, saved before ellipsis,

                  Why suddenly? Why do we need new calibers ??? This is not a new machine gun, this is a whole complex R&D with appropriate funding, plus a very, very costly transition to a new caliber. WHAT FOR??? While there is 5.45 plus 7.62x39, its full potential has not been exhausted. Just so that it was ??? Even the Germans, from their G11, did not switch to 4.7mm - it is very expensive, the game is not worth the candle.
                  New cartridges? They are - 7N39 for example.

                    The Germans pressed NATO with their caliber, the same thing happens with its pistol cartridge 4,6x30 ... The Czechs suggested, at one time, a cartridge in the 7,62x45 caliber, a more powerful cartridge, to start with the hunters, and then you see, the warriors reach out. For hunting, you need a cartridge from 2500J, there is no such domestic one. About 7h39 this is just a new bullet with slightly modified ballistics .. It does not change the essence.

    And it never occurs to anyone that in the pursuit of profit, Kalashnikov is arming our potential enemies. And the grief and tears of the families of the future dead soldiers are not of interest to them, because the efficient menager earn money.

      And if, for example, India acquires this model to equip its army, there will be no threat to Russia's security.

          Promises are superfluous. All obligations of the parties are prescribed in contracts.
          Did they sell a lot of Brahmos?
          And this thing will be tighter than the AK.

      Turkey (NATO member) sold the S-400 ...
      Greece sold air defense systems Tor (25 pieces for 2016), Greece is the same NATO member ... For 9K331 Tor-M1, S-300PMU1 on February 7, 2017, Rosoboronexport JSC signed a 2017-19 service contract with Greece.

      You might think potential enemies are unarmed now :) IMI has been selling Galiles for a long time, which in fact are Kalash. China does not count at all. So it's better to let ours work.

    Recently I read that the Mayak plant has developed a KalashNash multi-caliber platform, or rather chambered for 5.56,5.45,7.62, Grendel and 6x cartridges. In a couple of minutes, the barrel, bolt and magazine change to switch to another caliber
    Also, the developers managed to implement the "bolt-on" mode for precise shooting with single shots

    Why not withdraw? The fact that he won is understandable. But it is unlikely that a country with 7,62NATO calibers will buy machines for our cartridge. Therefore, they release the NATO cartridge in order to further expand the market

    And they themselves, our enemies are not armed? Or think that our AK-19s will be purchased in millions of quantities. Vaughn machines of the 100th series (AK-101 and AK-102) were purchased by only 10 countries, and far from the largest ones, such as Fiji, Singapore, etc.

      Who knows, who knows, nobody knows anything in advance. Life sometimes throws up such freaks. Who assumed that this would happen to Ukraine, and who assumed that the Russian soldier would start spitting in Geyrope, who saved their lives and died? Honestly, if I had my way, I would arrange for them the second series of the forties of the last century, these ungrateful pigs, such as the Poles.

        Like to negotiate in an amicable way with Germany on the restoration of the interstate border as before the start of the First World War. Of course, it will be necessary to return Koenigsberg to the Germans, but this ridiculous state formation will not be on the map, as well as the Baltic dwarfs.

    The store does not correspond to STANAG, and in many ways, therefore, there will not be as many applicants as it could be if it did. But adjusting to the STANAG magazine would entail too serious changes to the receiver and, possibly, the bolt group, it is not easy to re-barrel under 5.56 × 45.
