Serbian arms factory making guns for U.S. Remington

BELGRADE, Serbia-Montenegro-Serbia's only arms factory, Zastava, will produce 24,000 weapons for U.S.-based Remington Arms Company, Inc., next year, the factory manager said Monday.

Dragoljub Grujovic said that the production is part of a US$3.2 million (€2.7 million) deal with America's oldest gunmaker.

The first shipment of 3,000 carbine rifles and small-caliber guns is ready to go in January, Grujovic said. Another is planned for February and six more for later in 2006.

Cooperation between U.S. and Serbian companies became possible after the 2000 ouster of former President Slobodan Milosevic by a pro-Western coalition.

The agreement between Remington and Zastava will help revive the Serbian factory, which had suffered huge losses during years of U.S. and other international sanctions imposed on Serbia as a punishment for Milosevic's warmongering policies.

Milosevic is currently being tried by a Netherlands-based U.N. war crimes court.

Isn't the top one an updated SKS?




It looks exactly like an AK made to fit and placed in a "classic hunting" style wooden stock.
