With over 200 years of battle proven firearm manufacturing experience, Concern Kalashnikov understands the importance of legacy building… and giving tactical operators what they need to succeed in the field. Among those needs, the famed IZ132 has stood at the ready for decades as the premier go-to tactical firearm and 2014 is no different with kind of option upgrades and rugged durability that makes your environment a safer, more versatile place whether shooting, hunting or standing your ground.
While the standard IZ132 continues to surpass discerning demands with gas-operated, rotating-bolt action chambered in 7.62 x 39, high-impact polymer hunting butt and forend and a 16.3-inch barrel, three 922(r) compliant upgrades for the IZ132 have been added for 2014 that continue to authentically represent original Kalashnikov design while answering the every evolving calls of shooters and hunters around the globe. The following upgrades also fit Saiga Model IZ240.
The IZ132 Saiga upgrade includes an improved polymer stock and handguard as well as integrated ergonomic pistol grip. The upgrade accepts traditional 30-round double-stack magazines.
The SU2 Saiga upgrade, which will be introduced in the fall, also accepts 30-round double-stack magazines while adding a Command Arms Accessories (CAA) skeletonized collapsible stock with rubber recoil pad and ergonomic extension design, a rubberized pistol grip with interchangeable back straps and finger grooves, and hand guard complete with Picatinny rails.
For the most discriminating IZ132 operators, the SU3 Saiga upgrade includes a fully adjustable CAA stock (SRSNL) with 10-position extension adjustability, adjustable cheek piece for height and eye relief, and vertically adjustable rubberized butt pad. Capitalizing on a superb ergonomic grip design, the rubberized grip includes six interchangeable finger groove and backstrap inserts sure to fit any hand. Storage is also available in the grip system and secured by a snap cap. Rounding out the SU3 upgrade is a 5-picatinny-rail system capable of handling all of your tactical lighting, hunting and shooting accessories. The upper receiver dust cover can be manipulated and removed without dismantling the rail system. The SU3 is designed to accept a 30-round double-stack magazine. This model will be introduced to the marketplace in early 2015.
