The 6P68 Kord assault rifle from world-famous Russian arms manufacturer ZiD (JSC Degtyarev Plant) shows the wonders of accuracy in the hands of special forces soldiers. Experts especially note its unique characteristics in automatic firing mode owing to an innovative balanced action system.

Vast experience in the development of machine guns, sniper rifles and other weapons has enabled the manufacturer to select the most advanced light and durable alloys to achieve high reliability of the weapon, and close interaction with law enforcement agencies has helped develop the most convenient design for various missions.

At IDEX 2021, the Kord assault rifles will be exhibited at the Rosoboronexport stand.

Small arms manufactured by Kalashnikov Concern have long been setting international quality standards. Highly qualified personnel and unique technologies make it possible to manufacture high-quality weapons, respond to market demands and follow global trends in a timely manner.

The legendary Kalashnikov AK platform has further evolved into the long-anticipated AK-19 assault rifle in the world market, chambered for 5.56x45mm NATO. The AK-19, like any Russian Kalashnikov assault rifle, gives confidence in every shot. With its telescopic stock and other technical solutions that improve ergonomics, the weapon is extremely handy to a soldier of any army in the world, regardless of his anthropometric data.

The AK-19 is equipped with a non-detachable slotted flash suppressor, a quick-detachable sound suppressor, an extended sight line and new sights. These technical solutions implemented by the developer meet modern warfare requirements.

The AK-19 will be available at the Kalashnikov stand as part of a single Russian exhibit organized by Rosoboronexport.
