You are going to love it...
This is very popular Russian TV Gun show (Part of Russian evil propaganda to raise patriotic feelings in young generation, you know... :twisted: ), I don't mind, like it anyway... :thumbup:
This time you'll be able to watch it also and judge for yourself since there are English subtitles...
Enjoy! :D
Watch on youtube.com

Very cool. i am watching it now. Looks like there is lots of factory footage.

I hear there is a growing pro gun movement in russia. Would be good to see that change continue as more people get interested in guns.

I like it too, but kind of surprised that they still use such an old equipment...... I expected something like white building & people in green "surgeon like" outfit working with CNC... you know... & here - SLADGE HAMMER! & Newest equipment is 1975 rifle making monster from Austria... :lol:
Same old Russia... 8-)

Yes it is true about PRO gun movement... Gun enthusiasts trying to create something like NRA in Russia...
There is great opposition & people are even more naive and uneducated there concerning gun ownership & just like here most of popular film stars are in open opposition to the idea of full legalization of firearms.
There is one thing you need to understand about Russian Federation - there are no States, ones it lawful it is lawful everywhere!
It is already legal to own semi auto rifle there & NO SEMI AUTO rifle is considered as an assault rifle. So it doesn't matter how it looks, if it shoots 1 round per trigger pull - it is NOT an assault rifle.
In order to get a permit for owning Saiga or AR or any other semi auto, you have to own a shotgun for 5 years without any incidence. After that you may apply for rifled rifle (bolt action or semi auto, doesn't matter they all in one category - LONG RIFLED FIREARM regardless of its look) but you MUST be a hunter.
As long as handguns - traumatic hand guns (which are totally banned here for some reason...) can be purchased for self defense after some bureaucratic routine, legally own real (non traumatic) handguns it is much more difficult & there are many debates are expected in future regarding this issue...
But overall I can say this - YES it is getting much more easy to own a firearm in Russia & future is very positive... unlike here, which is sad & disappointing!...
My cousin lives in Moscow & he's teasing me regarding this matter, since he already legally owns all kinds of rifles (including semi auto) and have legal access to full auto AKs with no problem & pretty soon he'll buy his own handgun (owning a handgun in Russia means you can carry it anywhere and anytime...) How do you like that? HUH? :wave:

I like the sound of that. Russia is improving. Mom tells me the word of God is always moving west. Russia is West of here. :D Was just reading in RT.com (Russian Times) That sine Europe is basically starting to ban all weapons many believe russia should fill the gap and go the other way making it easier to get a gun legally. Its a friend I hope to see continue in Russia.

As for here in the USA. I know its been sorta discouraging. Especially in CA and NY but most of the rest of the USA is getting less limited on Gun. Don't give up hope here Brother Dmitry. :)


Its was interesting to see how primitive the factory looked. But isn't this an old video? The style of clothing sorta looked about 8-10 years old.

One more thing...
Shooting ranges are a HUGE BUSINESS in Russia now, so even if you don't have a permit to own a firearm you still can go to a private shooting range you shoot WHAT EVER YOUR SOUL DESIRES...
Very popular sniping clubs & all youth highly encouraged to participate... Firearm safe operation class is a mandatory in all high schools & since an army is a mandatory for all males (females are welcome to join army voluntarily) we are talking about a population which will be very familiar with firearms & when those kids grew up they will make appropriate changes in a law I'm sure.
Now, think about what is going on in US? just think about it... I don't want to offend anybody, but picture is quite opposite...
Maybe I just live too long in California... :(

"Vykhlop" or "Выхлоп" in English means "Exhaust"...
"Vintorez" or "Винторез" is a combination of English words "Thread cut"...
I like that rifle as well, silent yet deadly... used by special forces.

VKS is a masterpiece... 12.7mm devastating round combined with sounds suppressed rifle concept - DREAM RIFLE!
