Russian arms manufacturer JSC Izhmash is gearing up to produce the Saiga-9 carbine, a civilian version of the Vityaz-SN submachine gun. Â The new Saiga-9 will be chambered in 9mm (aka 9×19).
The new carbine was introduced at the 2012 Russian Hunting and Sporting Goods show in September. Â Currently, I don’t have much information on the Saiga-9, other than it is the “civilÂ equivalent” of the SMG.
Below is a video of the Vityaz-SN in action. Â Expect that the Saiga-9 will look similar (with a longer barrel no doubt), but will lack the automatic fire.
