Russia signs first contracts for the export of AK-19 under NATO patronage

As noted by the press secretary of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Valeria Reshetnikova in an interview with RIA NewsThe Russian Federation signed the first contracts for the new AK-19 assault rifle. This machine is notable for the fact that it was created under the patronage of the NATO standard. This circumstance alone ensured a steady interest in the new machine in other countries.


For the first time abroad, the AK-19 was presented at the international exhibition IDEX-2021, which was held in February in Abu Dhabi (UAE). The new machine gun was created on the basis of the AK-12, but with the condition that 5,56x45 mm cartridges used in the armies of NATO countries were suitable for it. AK-19 is equipped with Picatinny rails, telescopic stock, optical sight, quick-release device for silent and flameless shooting. Another interesting detail is that it can be effectively used in hot and humid climates, which makes it interesting for the armies of southern countries.



In Russia, they expect that the AK-19 will be bought, first of all, by the armies of the Persian Gulf countries, which have the appropriate financial resources and at the same time use the cartridges of the North Atlantic Alliance standard.

According to Reshetnikova, in 2022, a plant for the production of Kalashnikov assault rifles and cartridges for them will start operating in Venezuela. The enterprise will produce cartridges for AK. Although American sanctions are in force against Venezuela, Russia does not see any particular obstacles to the launch of the plant: its construction is at the final stage. All assembly lines are assembled by Russian specialists.

Another weapons the project is being implemented by Russia in India: here in the city of Corva, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, it is planned to produce more than 600 AK-203 assault rifles under a Russian license.

    The Russian Federation signed the first contracts for the new AK-19 assault rifle.

    With whom? Usually this information is not hidden, but, on the contrary, is emphasized.

    The AK-47 could do it. And all his descendants. I don't think this one is special either.

    That's how it is !!! A week ago, for the waste without significant results under this contract, they promised to land, but here "that's how it is, Mikhalych" (c).

      The FSMTC of Russia never specifies with whom contracts for the supply of military products have been concluded. The contract is concluded by the subject of military-technical cooperation and only he decides to inform anyone about it or not. All the more so during a period of aggravated competition, when sanctions are imposed for any reason, including against states and organizations that buy something from Russia.
      The AK-47 could do it. And all his descendants. I don't think this one is special either.

      No need to find fault with what you have no idea about. The AK-47 was a great assault rifle for the early 50s. It is also very reliable, heavy. They can hammer in nails, use them as a strike weapon (club) in battle ... But at present, the customer has other requests for the performance characteristics of the machine ... It differs from the AK-20 with these characteristics.

        These are the characteristics that make it different from the AK-47.

        And I do not hai in any case. But it is precisely the characteristic indicated in the article that does not differ. If I were told about the increased accuracy compared to the AR-15, I would only be glad. And we are not surprised by the dust and moisture resistance.

      And yet ... You write something in the code, read about the subject ... to formulate the idea clearly.
      That's how it is !!! A week ago, for the waste without significant results under this contract, they promised to land, but here "that's how it is, Mikhalych" (c).

      Under the contract, waste cannot be in principle, since a contract is a document (Agreement) for the sale of something (property, services) to someone.
      All cash flows under the contracts are under the strict control of the GB of Russia ...
      If we are talking about the AK-12 modernization project, then this is another story that has nothing to do with this event.

      Venezuela will have factories for the production of AK-103 and 7.62 * 39 cartridges.
      During the reign of Hugo Chavez, they already purchased more than 100 of these assault rifles, 000 SVD, and also RPK and PKM machine guns.

        Even Venisuela in the mid-10s of the 21st century bought almost 5000 PSO-1 sights for the SVD ...
        Now they put PSO-1 wherever they can attach it (for example, on M40A1 recoilless guns).

    AK-100500ABVGDEEZHZIYKLM again managed to snatch someone, hurray citizens. Of course, they will not tell us how this craft differs significantly from the AK-101, because it is more profitable to sell a "new" machine gun than a set of a stock, a replaceable forend with a pad (or even a strip instead of a rear sight) and an adapter from a swallow to a strip.
    PS For this joke, they did not even hang the magazine reset lever and the fire mode switch and the fuse under one-handed control, although it would seem a penny. And the mode switch itself could have been changed for a long time to a more convenient one.

      PS This joke did not even hang the store reset lever


      In order for the store to be dumped like in ARK, it is not necessary to change the design of the machine, but the design of the store itself, which is very, very unprofitable, because then the old stores will not be compatible.

      and a switch for fire modes and a fuse for one-handed control, although it would seem a penny. And the mode switch itself could have been changed for a long time to a more convenient one.


      This was done on the AK-12SP. Perhaps later they will do it on the usual one.

        Thank you lol
        You, as I understand it, did not twist the machine gun in your hands. I'll tell you more, if you press a button on a standard AK-74, the loaded magazine will fall, in any case it's easier and faster than the classic. You can also add a protrusion in the design of the lever itself, which at the end will press on the store below and thereby push it forward, then it will fly off 100%.
        In addition, I did not understand, if you are not going to change the design of the store, then why will the old ones stop being compatible?



        I don't see any changes in the store or in the receiver
        I will say even more, the Serbs were able to make a fire safety / translator on both sides, on the right a classic, on the left AR-like. The machine is called Zastava M21, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with the design so that there are fewer questions about changing the AK design.


        This was done on the AK-12SP

        AK-100500ABVGDEEZHZIYKLM again ̶s̶m̶o̶g̶l̶i̶ couldn’t sniff someone

        So
        Perhaps later they will do it on the usual one.


        KK found the most stupid scheme to muddy the loot, all his attempts are a waste of public money. Back in the 74s, it was possible to make normal body kits for the AK-101 \ 2 \ 3 \ 4 \ 5 \ XNUMX and close the KK on this, but then respected people would not be able to make dough at old Soviet factories, hard workers with low salaries and aboriginal buyers ...

          You probably only twisted. Where on which Kalash did you see the BUTTON? The magazine catch and the button are 2 BIG differences. Actually, that's why I talked about a change in the design of the stores for the BUTTON (there was always a LATCH on the AK, these are 2 structurally different devices, it's like confusing the trigger and the trigger), it is IMPOSSIBLE to reset magazines like ARK on AK, without changing the design of the stores.
          And yes, you quickly changed your shoes - on the AK-12 there is a STANDARD LATCH of the store like that of the AK-74 / M and other Kalashoids. You just need to open your eyes.

          Once again, for those who are especially dull - body kits and a stock machine already coming with all the necessary body kits in the SET are far from the same thing. Putting an already hung up machine is obviously cheaper than taking machines out of warehouses and storage, sending them to a factory producing body kits, weighing all this, packing and sending back.

Putting an already hung up machine is obviously cheaper than taking machines out of warehouses and storage, sending them to a factory producing body kits, weighing all this, packing and sending back.

            We look:
            change of forend and pads on the gas pipe
            installation of a new pistol grip
            installation on sight strips, fire control handles, possibly also on a face / flashlight / tactical unit
            muzzle replacement
            installing a new fire switch / fuse
            installation of a new magazine catch
            installation of a new stock compatible with the standard mount
            set of new stores
            Do you seriously think that this should be done exclusively at the factory and the conscript cannot cope with this at all? Do you seriously think that it is impossible to make a modernization kit such that all parts can be delivered without making changes to the design of the existing AK-74 \ 100 and AKM? If KK is sweating to swallow the next batch of AK at full price, but not fundamentally different, it still means nothing.
            In addition, of course, to replace obsolete and resource-depleting machines, the machines supplied from the factory must already be in the appropriate configuration. But why make significant changes to the design, if you need to change easy-to-install fittings, and you do not need to make 100 options, you need one option that will fit on any machine that will exhaust all the requirements.
            Back in the 74s, it was possible to make normal body kits for the AK-101 \ 2 \ 3 \ 4 \ 5 \ XNUMX

            As I said, but first we will have an AK-12, then the OCD "Body kit", then an AK-200e, then another AK-12, and another seven in caliber, and then we will put interchangeable barrels on it and we will have one more machine gun only, although it would seem that all this could be squeezed into: the creation of the AK-100 series, the creation of each version of the hundredth assault rifle only with a weighted barrel (as the RPK-100 ...), and the creation of one set of modernization installed on all these machines, instead of a bunch of AK-12 and 200
            For example, AK-RMO, which is just the brainchild of the OCD "Body kit":
            The upgrade kit includes:

            Receiver cover with Picatinny rail, hinged to the rear sight;
            KSK attachment point to the rear sight;
            New overhead open rear sight with settings only "P" and "1" for a direct fire distance and 100 meters, respectively;
            Modified return spring heel;
            Glass-fiber reinforced polyamide forend with Picatinny rail: one at the bottom and two removable on the right and left side;
            Glass-fiber reinforced polyamide barrel with Picatinny rails;
            The buttstock is similar to the AK-12 mod. 2016th year. At the same time, the butt tube is different, since the receiver of the automatic rifles is different;
            Stock attachment knot, allowing the stock to be folded to the left;
            Stick 6Ch63.Sb18 is similar to the AK-12 mod. 2016th year;
            Affiliation
            Sling swivel for a belt, installed on the Picatinny rail;
            Stick 6CH64.Sb;
            Affiliation;
            Flame arrester 6CH63.13;
            Fuse box with a "shelf" for the index finger 6Ch63.Sb11, similar to that of the AK-12 and AK of the two-hundredth series;
            6 stores 6L23-01;
            Cover bag 6SH123.
            In addition, a 6Ch65 muffler (PBS) was developed.
            Which of these can be installed exclusively at the factory?
            And then we will saw the AK-EVO, because we made a ton of all kinds of garbage that will never be adopted, although they will still buy a different part, and which is not unified at all, and then try to make a kit so that everything is similar, although the same butts it was possible to make 1 universal mount and change the stocks as much as you want.
            Well yes
            Putting an already hung up machine is obviously cheaper than taking machines out of warehouses and storage, sending them to a factory producing body kits, weighing all this, packing and sending back.

            Of course, making a new barrel, box, grill just to hang plastic on top is cheaper than hanging plastic on an existing machine, because each machine will be transported from Vladivostok directly to Izhevsk on a separate UAZ, because you have no idea how you can, for example, create modernization points at army repair bases, large warehouses and units throughout the country simply using existing technicians or, if necessary, expelling specialists from the QC

              You seem to be positioning yourself as a person who understands weapons. So to say, the store reset button (or reset lever), instead of store latches it's like saying pull the trigger. You can even pull the trigger until blue in the face - there will be no shot, you need to pull the trigger!

              Besides, you perfectly understood what I was talking about, so do not pretend.


              Just the same, I did not understand, because the store RESET LEVER is not the same as the STORE LATCH - these are two structurally different parts. What I actually wrote about, you then started writing about the store latch. Although there is a magazine latch on the AK-12, and it is exactly the same as on the AK-74. What then was your claim is not clear.

              Cavo? I re-read both of my comments and did not see a word about the AK-12 at all, you mentioned it about it, I just laughed at the next


              I can remind you, it's easy for me:
              PS They didn't even hang on this joke magazine release lever[/ I]

              So what did you mean after all? Reset button [i]
              store, or standard magazine latch??

              Do you seriously think that this should be done exclusively at the factory and the conscript cannot cope with this at all? Do you seriously think that it is impossible to make a modernization kit such that all parts can be delivered without making changes to the design of the existing AK-74 \ 100 and AKM?

              Yes, this must be done at the factory so that a) it is cheaper; b) did not take time for weighing, targeting and other hemorrhoids; c) where do you propose to put the standard forend, pads, KSK, handles, etc.? Throw out ??? Someone here seemed to be advocating economy.
              All armies of the world have long been using machine guns / assault rifles with a body kit already in stock, and do not worry about weighing old barrels.

              Of course, making a new barrel, box, grill just to hang plastic on top is cheaper than hanging plastic on an existing machine, because each machine will be transported from Vladivostok directly to Izhevsk on a separate UAZ, because you have no idea how you can, for example, create modernization points at army repair bases, large warehouses and units throughout the country simply using existing technicians or, if necessary, expelling specialists from the QC


              Well, of course, you are sitting on the couch, much more visible than specialists in production and in the army. It is necessary to drive everyone away - here the head is clearly sitting more clearly ...
              And if without sarcasm, then the creation of modernization points is just more like cutting the dough than the supply of a modern machine gun to the troops, which in stock allows you to install different optics, while each time without shooting it again, after the next assembly / disassembly, and which by the way , is immediately completed with a good sighting system - a collimator, a night light, plus a magnifer. If all this is supplied separately and then assembled, then it will be 100% more expensive. Or do you consider yourself smarter than specialists in the Ministry of Defense? If so, why aren't they sitting here and writing comments, but you ???

    AR15 made a weight chambered for 7,62x39 .... I don't remember how it ended. But according to the used calibers AK is steep ... up to 7,62x51 ..... collected everything.

    Nice event. Better Russian under the NATO patron than American under Russian credit.
    good
    According to Reshetnikova, in 2022, a plant for the production of Kalashnikov assault rifles and cartridges for them will start operating in Venezuela.

    I suppose that cooperation between Russia and Venezuela will not be limited to the construction of the plant and the manipulation of oil?
    Cake with whipped cream Such a small naval base with an airfield will do. yes

    This machine is notable for the fact that it created under the patronage of the NATO standard. This circumstance alone ensured a steady interest in the new machine in other countries..


    There are many AK clones in the world chambered for NATO 5,56x45, for many years - from Israeli Galilia, through Polish Beryls, to Romanian AK-47 Sar-3 223 / 5.56 Bulgarian AR M14-SF Yugoslavian Zastava M21M77 or Croatian APS95 ...

    So it’s not a matter of caliber, but of the reputation that Russian small arms deservedly enjoy, and political considerations are of decisive importance here.

    - One representative of the commercial - looks decent (nothing is so MCH - "quite representative") and speaks in decent English ... - But the second "representative" is some kind of short-legged dwarf (can't they really find "someone else "- in the form of" advertising exchange ") ...
    - But in general - why do Americans need Russian machine guns under their own patron ... - who to arm ??? - APU, or what ??? - Or they are going to "take" Georgia into NATO and arm them with them (and even Serbia and Moldova) ... - probably for this they needed AK-19 under the NATO patron ...

    There is one small problem. The store had to be made like the M4, so that there was interchangeability.

    Here they make our weapons for 5,56, IChSH, for some kind of store. They would have washed down a weapon with a NATO standard magazine under this cartridge. I think export opportunities would only get better

    Is it too weak for shooting enthusiasts to stir up a rifle in 6,5 Grendel?
