Kalashnikov group is presenting a new PLK compact pistol for the first time in abroad at IDEX-2021.
“Another new product Kalashnikov group will showcase at the IDEX exhibition is PLK – compact Lebedev pistol chambered for 9×19 round. This handgun passed state technical trials in Russian Federation and already proved its reliability in a harsh environment,” said Dmitry Tarasov, CEO of the Kalashnikov Group.
Compact size and sufficient magazine capacity make PLK suitable for concealed carry, necessary for plainclothes law enforcement personnel. Picatinny rail allows mounting lights and lasers which are crucial in a low-light environment. One of the PLK’s advantages is great ergonomics: slide stop, manual safety, and magazine release are ambidextrous and allow both right-handed and left-handed to use it equally effectively.
All necessary permissions have been obtained and Kalashnikov is ready to offer PLK pistols to international customers, with a particular focus on the Middle East, said the company in a press release.
