Russian Weapon Company (RWS)-the official dealer and AK-47 importer in the USA in many respects owes the products of the famous Izhmash plant. However, recently, sanctions have intervened in the business prohibiting the purchase of military products in Russia. The news of the prohibition of the supply of AK-47 is literally boldly from the shelves of weapons stores thousands of Kalash, which prompted the company’s management to look for a way out of this situation. The profit was above politics.
The management of the RWS made a logical and somewhat non-standard decision-to establish their own production AK-47 and some types of hunting weapons, in particular, Saiga carbines. Sanctions completely exclude the possibility of any approvals with the manufacturer. According to Rick Yang, leading sales manager, company representatives do not even have the right to a phone call to Izhevsk.
From now on, the AK-47 will show off on the shelves of the US arms stores under their name, but with the inscription “Made in USA”. It is worth noting that the Americans have no licenses for his release, and the Kalashnikov concern from such American enterprise will not receive a cent.
Over his almost 70-year history, the famous Soviet AK-47 managed to “register” and fight in dozens of countries, but even despite such respectable age and merits, he does not think to go “in the reserve”. In recent years, the symbol of the Soviet era has been successfully mastering the US arms market, where thousands of admirers appeared in the supernarette AK-47.
