Venezuela to manufacture 7.62x39mm ammunition

    They need to feed the 100,000 AK-103 rifles they bought from Russia.

    “The ammunition plant will be capable of producing over 50 million rounds annually,” said Nikolai Maslyaev, general director of the Izhevsk-based design bureau for automated assembly lines.

    The ammunition plant, which is being constructed near the Kalashnikov rifle assembly plant in Venezuela’s Aragua State, is expected to be ready for production by the end of 2010.
