Kalashnikov group is presenting a new PLK compact pistol for the first time at the largest Middle East arms exhibition IDEX-2021, which will be held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates from February 21-25.

“Another new product Kalashnikov group will showcase at the IDEX exhibition is PLK – compact Lebedev pistol chambered for 9x19 round. This handgun passed state technical trials in Russian Federation and already proved its reliability in a harsh environment,” said Dmitry Tarasov, CEO Kalashnikov Group.

Compact size and sufficient magazine capacity make PLK suitable for concealed carry, necessary for plain clothes 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 official permissions have been obtained so Kalashnikov is ready to offer PLK pistols to international customers, with a particular focus on the Middle East.
