Russia continues to supply non-lethal weapons to the USA

Russia continues to supply non-lethal small arms to the USA weapon. American partners buy traumatic pistols “Wasp” for sheriffs, reports Interfax-AVN report of Valery Varlamov, head of Rosoboronexport security department.

Varlamov, who led the company's delegation at the MILIPOL 2017 exhibition in Paris, explained that non-lethal weapons are not products of military purpose, therefore, manufacturers have the right to deliver them abroad.

However, in 2017, changes to the Law on Arms entered into force in Russia. In accordance with it, Rosoboronexport received the right to export civilian and service weapons. This is a new market for us, but we have full competence,
he said.

Manufacturing of barrelless pistols "Wasp" is engaged in concern "Techmash". Last year, the concern’s press service reported that the first batch of 60 pistols and 10 thousands of cartridges for them were purchased for Arizona sheriffs.

The press service called the “Osu” a “humane” pistol, which primarily has a “restraining and psychological impact”.

As noted by the sheriffs themselves, this weapon will allow law enforcement authorities to kill less and detain more violators. And “Osa” increases their safety due to the design features - the absence of moving reciprocating parts. The gun is not jammed, it is reliable.

    It would be better if hemp ropes and laundry soap. However, they only need one soap to drop their hooves

      Sheriffs love to kill blacks, which means they will continue to kill. Rezinostrel is not a panacea. But they won’t take away their pistols? And the figure is funny-60 pieces.

              So why were the misfires? The first wasp was battery powered. The people relaxed and at the right moment the battery turned out to be discharged and saved only the discharge in athletics. Now the battery is only for LCC, the effect on the capsule is due to the piezoelectric element. It is trouble free.

                "wasp" was originally on a piezoelectric, do not confuse with a "guard"

                  You are not right.
                  In 2005, the model was improved. In Osa PB-4-1 ML, the laser and trigger are separated. The laser designator is still charging from the battery, and the trigger from the magnetic pulse trigger generator.

            On the contrary, cartridges were more powerful earlier and the core was metal, but now under the new law the cartridge energy has been significantly reduced - the power limit is 90J and the absence of metal cores

            If you get into the head from any traumatic weapon, it’s not possible to sit down, but will sit down MANDATORY!

      What protection? Private security company "Borodach"? They do not have such authority. The maximum that they can legally do is call the police and politely ask the citizen to wait for her.
