The Kalashnikov company, one of the world’s largest firearms manufacturers, has backpedaled on its earlier plans to issue a license for the production in the US.

      According to the firm’s website, the board of directors has refused a request from Itadesa that sought to produce Russian AK-102 in the US.

      Kalashnikov earlier signed a deal with RWC, Russian Weapon Company, making it the exclusive importer of its weapons in the US.

      Apart from AKs, it also manufactures Saiga rifles and shotguns, Biathlon target rifles and of course, the legendary AK47.

      In addition to importing the Saiga rifles in 7.62 x39 .223 .308 and 5.45×39 caliber and Saiga autoloading shotguns in 12, 20 and 410 gauges, an additional line of Izhmash products will be available including: new shotgun models featuring factory skeletonized butt stocks, vented forends, magazine wells and Picatinny rails.

      RWC will also have Kalashnikov models featuring CAA’s battle proven furniture. In addition, the original Izhmash furniture and a complete line of original Izhmash factory replacement parts and magazines will be available from RWC.
