Russia: Kalashikov unveils civilian version of AK-12 rifle at Moscow expo.
Ruptly Jun 25, 2019
Russian arms manufacturer Kalashnikov Concern revealed a civilian version of its AK-12 rifle, the Tactical Rifle 3 (TR3), at Patriot Park outside of Moscow on Monday.
"The only difference between the AK-12 and TR3 is that TR3 being a civilian rifle is semiautomatic only, and has a special mechanism that prevents firing the weapon with a folding stock,” Vladimir Onokoi, a Kalashnikov representative, said.
The Defence Ministry adopted the AK-12 and AK-15 assault rifles in early 2018. The weapon is designed for the 'Warrior' complex. At the end of last year, the first batch was shipped to the military department. It is expected that by 2020 these Warrior complexes will be issued to all military personnel.

‘Record’ shot dead! WATCH Russian sniper hit ALL targets in COMPLETE DARK at 2km distance.
RT.com 27 Nov, 2019 14:30
In a record-beating stunt, a marksman defied bad weather and total darkness, hitting all the targets, using a Russian made long-barreled extra-powerful sniper rifle at a distance as far as two kilometers.
Made by a Russian firearms company Lobaev Arms, the SVLK-14 anti-materiel rifle was put to the extreme test this week. The ultra-high velocity firearm was equipped with a passive night vision scope that allows one to see in the dark but doesn’t illuminate the target.
“We want to set a record for the longest night shot, without any lighting ... by a laser or other sources of light,” Vladimir Lobaev, the weapon’s designer, told Ruptly video agency ahead of the shooting session.
Further complicating the test, bad weather descended on the firing range, worsening visibility and muddying the scope. According to Lobaev, the dark was total – neither moon nor stars were visible at the time.
Still, Sergey Shmakov, the marksman, managed to do the job firing five rounds that hit the target set up 1,920 meters away. Though eye-catching, the record was not officially registered – but the company doesn’t want to stop there.
The team will gradually increase the distance, the sniper revealed. “In the spring, we’ll make it to 2,300m, then 2,500 or 2,600m, and then 6 kilometers. That is, we will go forward,” Shmakov said.

Russia’s Kalashnikov gun factory launches digital rifle ‘for hipsters,’ allowing high-tech hunters to live-stream their kills.
RT.com 9 Feb, 2021 12:34
With digital fridges and internet-connected cars, everyday objects are getting smarter. Now, thanks to a Russian arms manufacturer, your shotgun is no exception, with a new cutting-edge weapon bridging the gap to the cyber world.
Dmitry Tarasov, director general of the Kalashnikov group of companies, famous for bringing the world the AK-47 assault rifle, gave journalists a fresh look at the new firearm on Tuesday.
He described the MP-155 Ultima smart gun as a “gadget weapon” that can appeal to a broader range of audiences than traditional firearms. It contains a processor that can be used to sync up with a shot counter that tells you how many shells you have left, a compass for navigation, and even video recordings so the user can share their favorite kills with friends and followers.
According to Tarasov, the design is inspired by a generation used to living life in front of a screen. “The task is to attract that part of the audience who was born with gadgets and cannot imagine themselves without them,” he said. “Classical hunting today is becoming more rare, even outlandish. Therefore, I would like it to involve [people like] hipsters and those from Gen Z.”
The tech-heavy shooter can be yours for the price of a top-of-the-range smartphone. Would-be cyber hunters will be able to pick up a version for only around 100,000 rubles ($1,300).
The Kalashnikov group is Russia’s largest domestic manufacturer of automatic weapons, sniper rifles, artillery shells, and other military hardware. It produces around 95 percent of all small arms in Russia.
Russia's Kalashnikov Group unveiled its most recent 5.56*45mm AK-19 assault rifle, made for Nato standards oriented clients, at the IDEX-2021 arms show, that kicked off on Sunday in Abu Dhabi.
The new rifle is making its international debut and is expected to become 'extremely popular with visitors', according to the exhibitors, as it has 'all the modern features, that customers want to see on a modern fighting rifle" in addition to 'the legendary AK reliability.'
The AK-19 was created on the basis of the AK-12 assault rifle, adopted for service by the Russian Army in 2018. The new gun is outfitted with a new diopter rear sight, Picatinny rails for mounting modern accessories and optics, as well as a telescoping buttstock, and a quick detachable flash suppressor to which a silencer can also be added.
Besides the AK-19, the Kalashnikov Group also brought to Abu Dhabi its new PLK compact Lebedev pistol, which is intended to replace the long-serving Makarov, and the MP-155 Ultima shotgun with built-in computer, as well as some other recently developed products.
The 15th edition of IDEX and NAVDEX will be taking place from February 21-25 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition in the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Over 900 exhibitors from 59 nations are taking part through 35 national exhibition stands.
TsarSamuil: Medicines aren't allowed to be sold on the market without a 15 year trial period, to determine short n long term effects. Sputnik just turned 1 year, others not even that, just months, how can we determine long term effects without the data from long term

TsarSamuil: exposure? Does anyone have a time machine to go 14 years or so into the future n come back n say whether we have good vaccines? Fear makes world abandon its own standards..Besides, vaccines for other illnesses that have been developed for YEARS actually
Aug 24, 2021 11:23:40 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: help. These covid vaccines are literally SHIT, why else do they demand you take 1, 2 n now 3 shots? The problem is also a disease becomes resilient if u administer a weak vaccine that doesn't do the job proper. Allow illness to survive just makes it strong
Aug 24, 2021 11:25:04 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: instead if we go by the book, we should all wait for a really good vaccine to take out the illness for good. Now...we may never get rid of it..but understandably the world economy has a hard time dealing with lock downs, but that is just needless panic
Aug 24, 2021 11:27:06 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: why Swe had fared well with country not being locked down? Because they are cold people, keeping distance was the thing before covid-19 was ever heard of, I hope world doesn't become like that, but some could use a little common sense n change in behavior.

TsarSamuil: It's no wonder covid hits so many Arabs in the country, stupid bastards..
Aug 24, 2021 11:29:38 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: If I go to H&M a new shirt, if an Arab wants to buy a pair of pants, not only is his whole family along, his friends, even his freaking grandmother is along n all chattering along in a big dumb group of ignorance..

Boro: Thx for the response. I'm not sure... It seems the vaccines work, at least people aren't dying of Covid. Those who get ill have a problem, it's not "just a flu". Maybe it's from a chinese laboratory, who knows...
Aug 24, 2021 13:46:55 GMT -5
Boro: I agree regarding Arabs..
Aug 24, 2021 13:50:39 GMT -5
Boro: Be glad, Sweden isn't overpopulated.
Aug 24, 2021 14:11:49 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: true, vaccines do help somewhat, maybe better than nothing..I hope in 2022 we can come out of this nightmare..
Aug 24, 2021 15:38:24 GMT -5
Boro: Horrible times, indeed.
