AK47 – Traditional Military Version

A relatively lightweight, easy to use, hard-hitting rifle for motorised infantry. It is capable of semiautomatic or automatic fire modes.

The AK47 came in two versions. The standard AK-47 version had a wooden stock. The AKS version had a folding metal stock for mechanised infantry and parachute troops.

  •     Capacity: 30 rounds (standard)

 

SKS Rifle

The SKS is a Soviet 7.62x39mm caliber semi-automatic carbine, designed in 1945 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. The Soviets rather quickly phased the SKS carbine out of first-line service, replacing it with the AK-47. It remains a ceremonial arm today.

It was widely exported and produced by the former Eastern Bloc nations, as well as China. In common with some other Soviet-era designs, the SKS trades some accuracy for ruggedness, reliability, ease of maintenance, and ease of use. The SKS is a simple design that is highly effective and rugged..

  •     Weight: 3.85 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .7.62x39mm (same round as AK47)
  •     Capacity: 10 rounds (Tallinn version shown is fitted with a 30 round AK47 magazine)

   
Tokarev TT33

Standard Red Army self-loading pistol during WW2. Tokarevs were widely exported and, although obsolete now, may still be found in use in many former Soviet states. It is essentially a copy of the American 1911 Colt but simplified for ease of manufacture and use. Although not well made or well finished, the Tokarev is a typically tough Soviet design capable of taking a lot of punishment and still functioning where some more “modern” handguns would break.

  •     Weight: 0.83 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 7.62 X 25mm Soviet
  •     Capacity: 8 rounds

   

Makarov PM

This was the standard Soviet service pistol from the 1950s onwards and was also widely used by KGB agents because of its relatively small size and easy concealability. This is essentially a larger copy of the Walther PPK design firing a smaller less powerful round than the NATO equivalent 9x19mm parabellum. It is tough and reliable but by modern Western standards remains somewhat dated. It can be found still in use in armies of ex-Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries.

  •     Weight: 0.72 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 9mm X 18 Soviet
  •     Capacity: 8 rounds

 

Saiga 12K Shotgun with Tactical Kit

This modern Russian semi-automatic shotgun has been based on the famous and time-proven Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifle design. The “K” version was intended as a security, police and self-defense weapon, and is widely used by Russian special forces (Spetsnaz) and private security services. The Saiga 12K has proven to be both a versatile and effective weapon for close range situations, such as counter-terrorist operations inside buildings.

One of the significant superiorities of semi-auto shotguns in comparison to pump-action weapons is the high possible rate of fire. Even an average shooter firing the ‘Saiga-12′ can shoot a series of five targets in a bit more than two seconds; a difficult task for any pump-action shotgun regardless of the skill of an operator.

This souped up version comes complete with a red dot electronic sight for super fast target acquisition with both eyes open, a folding tactical stock, and an ergonomic front grip for maximum control in rapid fire situations.

  •     Weight: 3.5 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: 12 bore (.729)
  •     Capacity: 5 or 8 shots in detachable box magazine
