Venezuela to Introduce Indigenous Weapons

Gustavo Ochoa has a mission.

The government owned company under his management, CAVIM, announced the production of three indigenous weapons for 2006, including a pistol, a revolver and an assault riffle.

CAVIM will also refurnish thousands of FAL riffles to be distributed among reservists when the army receives 100.000 brand-new AK103 from Russia.

When asked about Venezuela’s military build-up Ochoa makes it clear: “This is not in a military build-up but a social mission. ”

A double mission that is: saving the indigenous weapon while arming Venezuelans to the teeth.
