Russia’s Kalashnikov Group will showcase its AK-19 assault rifle and PLK compact pistol at IDEX-21 exhibition in Abu Dhabi, marking their debut at an international event.

IDEX-21 arms exhibition will be held from February 21 to 25.

“AK-19 is chambered for 5.56x45 round, one of the most popular rifle rounds in the world, which is currently used by NATO countries. This new rifle was developed specifically for the export market. We are confident that presentation of AK-19 at IDEX, a large international exhibition will interest foreign customers and we are already getting the first requests,” said Dmitry Tarasov, CEO of the Kalashnikov Group.

AK-19 is based on AK-12, which was accepted into service by the Russian Armed Forces in 2018. AK-19 has a Picatinny rail, a new collapsible folding stock, improved aperture sight, and a quick-detachable suppressor.

AK-19 already caught the attention of some Middle Eastern customers who are using 5.56x45 ammunition. In a hot and humid climate with frequent sandstorms, AK-19 will ensure reliability and effectiveness with minimal maintenance.
