Kalashnikov Concern is supporting the 2015 World Championship in Practical Shooting – and is debuting at the competition the capabilities of its latest rifle, the Saiga 12, version 340.

The new rifle was designed in conjunction with leading shooters and athletes of the Practical Shooting Federation of Russia.

"The development of shooting sports throughout the world is one of the concern’s priorities, given its position as one of the world's largest producers of small arms,” said Alexey Krivoruchko, CEO of Kalashnikov Concern . “The World Championship in Practical Shooting is an important expert platform to promote new civilian weapons. Cooperating with the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) will contribute to the further promotion of the safe handling of weapons as well as shooting sports throughout the world.”

Around 50 shooters and six teams of the Practical Shooting Federation of Russia (FPSR), including male and female practical shooting teams from Kalashnikov Concern, will represent Russia in the World Championship. They will compete with the latest Saiga 12, version 340 rifle. The rifle is fully prepared for competition, with only the choice of a suitable collimator sight remaining.

The World Championship in Practical Shooting is scheduled to take place September 13-19 in the Italian city of Agna.
