Coming Soon from Izhmash: Saiga 9mm Carbine

There’s news today that Izmash, manufacturers of the Saiga rifles and shotguns, will be producing a civilian version of their¬†Vityaz-SN rifle (pictured above). The rifle is based on the paratrooper model “Krink” AK-47 but with some modifications to the operating parts (it wasn’t entirely clear from the translation). GH&G had the scoop, and their speculation is that the gun will either be a pistol configuration to give the Draco pistols a run for their money or a fixed stock 16 inch barrel version, which would lend itself to being SBRed pretty quickly. Either way, this thing looks pretty cool and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
