This military weapon, which has been produced under the Kalashnikov brand for more than 60 years, is the unsurpassed worldwide standard for reliability and simplicity

  • Mikhail Kalashnikov

    A firearm must be beautiful like a woman, it must fit your hands perfectly and make you want to take it!

  • Hugo Chavez

    I have to say that the Kalashnikov assault rifle is more than a submachine gun, more than an assault rifle. I assert: this is the best assault rifle in the world. There is no other like it on the planet.

  • Ulrich Eichstädt

    Expert with the German Visier firearms magazine

    In contrast with plastic US-made pistols, when you hold a Makarov handgun, you feel a solid piece of steel. The bolt and bolt carrier are cast metal, the bolt rails inside are machined quite cleanly, and the outside polish is immaculate.

  • Production process

    Concern Kalashnikov technologies allow to perform all the technological processes in-house. It makes the production turnout completely independent from external components supply.

  • Blank production process stage

    This is the initial stage, where production materials are shaped into blanks of future component parts through forging, casting and sheet pressworking. While the sheet pressworking is gradually superseded by laser cutting.

  • Machining processes

    A blank, obtained in the course of the blank production process, is processed on drilling, turning, milling and polishing,machines, as well as on numerically controlled machines, such as, ОЦ, ИР-500, ИР-320, Mikron,  Index, Traub, Leadwell and Diamond. These machines ensure processing with minimal number of emplacements/mountings, thus guaranteeing production of high quality parts. The machine tool fleet is regularly renewed with high-tech equipment.

  • Thermal processing stage

    Thermal processing ensures parts compliance with the obligatory requirements to strength and hardness. Parts quenching and tempering are carried out in heat-treatment furnaces, such as, СНЦА, Ц90, СКЗА, ТАФ, Ibsen, etc. New equipment is deployed at the sections of ion-plasma nitriding and tenifer processess.

  • Barrel production processing stage

    The Concern Kalashnikov uses a wide range of processes in barrel production, such as, boned finishing, speed and multistage reaming and straight gouging. Barrel grooves are made by forging on radial forging machines and by means of electrochemical pickling. The company is also planning to restore gone with the time but effective technologies, e.g. barrel grooves gouging. Designing of the equipment for such technologies is starting in the nearest future.

  • Galvanical, protective coating and painting processing stage

    The required bore wear resistance is achieved due to application of special galvanic coatings. These works are carried out on speed chrome-plating lines, developed and produced at Concern enterprises. The existing equipment allows operations of cadmium coating, lead coating, anodic coating and application of other coatings, as well as phosphate treatment of parts surface.

  • Plastic casting processing stage

    To produce plastic parts Company enterprises use casting machines, which ensure production of all the plastic parts range, required to equip products in accordance with the engineering documentation.

  • Assembly processing stage

    Company equipment and personnel high skills allow to carry out assemblage of all the range of grooved and smoothbore products - from airguns to high-accuracy sniper rifles of high quality.

Military weapons, more than 60 years produced under the brand "Kalashnikov", is unsurpassed worldwide standard for reliability and simplicity

The quality of Baikal brand weapons is recognized by hunters and experts on five continents. Its product line includes over 50 base models, 200 variants and over 1,500 possible configurations

  • Andy Castle

    the owner of and instructor at West London Shooting School, one of the oldest in the UK, 1990 sports shooting world champion

    I believe that buying a Baikal shotgun is a sensible decision. It would certainly naïve to expect crowds of sporting shooting aficionados in England to rush to gun shops to clear Russian shotguns off the shelves, creating a shortage. However, if you need a reliable and sturdy shotgun, one can depend on, one that would not let you down in the most challenging of operating conditions, get a Baikal. In any case, 10 million people before you have made this choice.

    The recoil is moderate, it is very easy to reload because the rifle doesn’t oscillate too much.
