Kalashnikov weapons will be refined in Russia

The Kalashnikov management intends to refine the finished products for sale in the country. Kozern pays special attention to export policy issues, said the head of Rostec, Sergey Chemezov, in an interview with Bloomberg.

It is no secret that quite often the refinement of the supplied models was made directly by the customer. As a result of deep processing of an export-oriented product, its value, for example, in the USA could increase by 3-4 times relative to the cost of a product produced at an enterprise in Russia.

The development of export programs is one of the priorities of the new leadership of the concern. Increased attention will be paid, in particular, to questions of marketing and the system of sales and distribution, said the head of Rostec, Sergey Chemezov.


"Kalashnikov" gradually increases exports of civilian weaponsespecially in the USA. In 2013, about 90% of the total sporting and hunting weapons exported by Kalashnikov were delivered to the USA. The Saiga carbines, for example, are in particular demand from the American police.

In January, 2014 of the year during the Shot Show 2014 exhibition, the Concern entered into an agreement with the Russian Weapon Company (RWC) on the supply of Izhevsk gunsmith products to the USA and Canada, according to which up to 200 thousand products will be exported to these countries annually. This will allow pursuing a consistent policy in the field of sales of sporting and hunting weapons in North America, increasing the concern’s share in the largest civilian arms market in the world.

Rostec implements a model of public-private partnership on Kalashnikov, an effective mechanism for reforming domestic industrial enterprises. In addition to investments, it is important to attract market competencies of investors, coupled with their responsible attitude to the assets they receive, notes Rostec head Sergey Chemezov.


The main goal of investors is to increase the capitalization and profitability of the enterprise. The key is to increase sales, including exports, to strengthen our presence in traditional markets and to enter new ones as part of the overall strategy for the development of the Russian arms industry. Within two years, the concern is scheduled to break-even.

Bokarev and Krivoruchko already have experience in creating financially successful enterprises in the field of high-tech engineering and are ready to apply these competencies in the development of the concern.

In accordance with the development strategy of the small arms industry for the period up to 2020 of the year, developed by Rostec together with the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Kalashnikov will provide for the full life cycle of the product - from design to disposal. He will also conduct research and development work on the creation of advanced weapons systems and systems. To implement the strategy of the concern at the first stage, 3,6 billion rubles will be required, 2,5 billion rubles from this amount will be attracted by private investors.

Of great importance is not only the amount of attracted investments, but also the market competencies of investors, as well as their high interest in developing the asset.

The merger of enterprises under the Kalashnikov brand will allow the Russian rifle industry to be brought to a new level of development, to create new promising rifle complexes, and will help increase the competitiveness of enterprises on the world market. Also, the consolidation of efforts will help reduce the cost of management and other management work, optimize the cost of logistics and transport, manufacturing tools, equipment and tooling. The concern will have a unified marketing strategy, and a management company will be created to develop and promote the Kalashnikov brand.

    We all love to "modify it a little with a file," instead of releasing the normal one right away.
    The only question is whether they will buy it, at a price that has increased 3-4 times?

      In other countries, it is unlikely ... 3-4 times more expensive you can take a lot of things, including analogues of our AK.

        The article also says that the end customer in the United States carried out the revision and the cost increased by 3-4 times. If we wake up to carry out revision (it is stupid to do better), then the cost will increase by 20-50% (not an expert, "at a glance")

        Absolutely right! It is only necessary to welcome the improvement in the quality of workmanship at OWN plants, and not to do semi-finished products for further refinement abroad.

        If everything is put on stream, then the price will be lower, and refinements should be made at the request of the customer !!!

        The cost of a simple revision Ak-74 10-12 TR - this is a butt, a handle, trims and a transparent store - i.e. minimum alterations are already 30% of the cost.
        But to put the same EOTech sight from 700 killed raccoons and above - which corresponds to the price of the machine itself.
        Our fuse optics are not as popular as everyone thought before.
        Well, if we had a wide arms market, then yes, although we’ll see, the main thing here is to really raise the quality of the weapons themselves.

      They will buy 3-4 times more expensive, a conversation so that as a result of deep processing of an export-oriented product, its value will increase. Just what they finish now abroad will do with us, I think it will be better. the manufacturer will do it.

        Not a fact, the question rests on the level of quality of the equipment, and the level of materials used for refinement.
        If, for example, a foreign modernizer can afford high-tech equipment inaccessible to the manufacturer, and he has access to the latest alloys and composites that the manufacturer does not have, then the manufacturer has no chance to surpass as a modernizer.

      in this revision with a “file” there is a deep meaning, because Russia has not yet become impoverished with the new young Kalashnikovs, Kulibins, etc.

      There will be, this is called a product with high added value. Modification of the main Kalash, roughly speaking, "body kit". There is a naked submachine gun of 1 ruble, they screwed the postman + 3 rubles, so they will take it)))

      The idea is most likely related to the wishes of the customers. For military purposes, the base variant will remain unchanged. And for "commercial use", they will probably make improvements. It is a pity that the article does not indicate the details, otherwise the readers now put forward each their own version.

      Considering the simplicity of AK in half an hour, we can make candy and ours, the problem with the fact that releasing hundreds of thousands on an assembly line will be all too expensive to re-equip.

    From the point of view of business and production, a completely normal step is a company factory tuning, like AMG Mercedes, it’s a plus to drive off overseas competitors from your pie (with a competent marketing approach, sales will not fall there, on the contrary, growth in the medium term) and product quality in overall boost.

    But the Russian AK only lasts almost forever, and the analogues fail after 3000 rounds. Of course, there are AKs assembled manually in the USA, but they are 3-4 times more expensive than Russian ones, but by an order of magnitude, i.e. the price tag is one toe more.

    No years go anywhere. Even the owner of the weapon now has the right to upgrade his weapon, and without any coordination with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, if this is not about the barrel, bolt or trigger.

    That's something like this phrase inspires suspicion. at least kill - something familiar to the pain
    Of great importance is not only the amount of attracted investments, but also the market competencies of investors, as well as their high interest in developing the asset.

    Well, not sure

    They would create a better joint venture for tuning based on the main dealer in the countries of sale. Everywhere the fashion is different, you can’t guess for everything, and it’s not profitable, it’s not custom-made maybachis. These greed decided to embrace the immense. Oh well.

    I think it makes sense to finally finally equip your army with decent weapons, and for this there are two ways to rearm completely with a new Kalashnikov model under the 5,56 cartridge. I saw this machine in the Kalashnikov Museum in 2004 or invest money and re-equip the conveyor lines and modify the AK 5,45 to the required specifications at the moment. Perhaps it makes sense to look at the Tula gunsmiths, what they can offer. wink

    Until there is a market, normal, in the country the arms industry
    will vegetate. In the west, there are enough firms of their own; oxygen will have to be completely blocked.
