Future weapons from Italy

49
So far, some designers are trying with all their might to perfect the existing models of manual firearms. weapons, others create a new and not quite ordinary weapon. I suggest a little move away from the usual layouts and systems of modern machines, pistols and other things and get acquainted with the result of the work of not the most famous Italian company - Technostudio Engineering.
Immediately, I would like to make a reservation that in metal, or rather in metal and plastic, as long as there is only a pistol, but in a short time you can expect a workable version of a submachine gun.


New Edge future pistol

The vision of how to change handguns in the near future is different for everyone, there are many prerequisites for the fact that it will cease to be a gunshot altogether. The refusal to detonate gunpowder as the main way to disperse a bullet through the barrel borehole will come sooner or later, but the designers of Technostudio Engineering do not look so far into the future, but offer a gun with an unusual design, but with the most ordinary cartridges.

Future weapons from Italy
Before getting acquainted with this gun in more detail, it is necessary to give its comparison with other known models of weapons, in order to avoid premature criticism. They compared the gun with the Glock 17 and Beretta Px4.

He fired the same shooter, the distance to the target was 25 meters. The Glock 17 10 pistol hits fit into a circle with a diameter of 40 centimeters. From the Beretta Px4 pistol, all the hits fit into the centimeter 35 range. With the new gun New Edge, all ten bullets hit the circle a little more 5 centimeters. The cartridges used are the same 9x19.

It is hard to believe in such indicators, or rather it is not believed at all, nevertheless, such a statement was made and if the weapon is interesting for someone from major manufacturers, you will have to explain why something is not true. Therefore, we will pretend that we believe and try to figure out what exactly the designers invented in order for it to show such results.

One of the things that gives the New Edge a gun such high accuracy is its low set barrel. This decision is far from new, and almost all manufacturers of handguns have made or tried to make a pistol with the trunk axis as low as possible. The reason here lies in the banal principle of the lever, the lower the barrel in relation to the hand of the arrow, the smaller the shoulder is formed when the recoil energy is applied to the pistol handle, and accordingly the hand of the arrow. As a result, the gun during shooting does not lead up, it does not go away from the aiming line, and the shooter himself feels less recoil when shooting, as the force vector is actually directed into the palm of the hand holding the weapon.

However, such results can not be achieved only due to a low-set barrel pistol, there must be something else. Another option to reduce recoil when shooting is the use of automation, which allows to stretch the moment of recoil.
That's just about the automation system of weapons designers modestly silent, but, apparently, it is not so simple. It is not excluded, of course, that an automation system with a short stroke of the weapon was used, but it can be noted that there is no projection above the chamber that would engage in the clutch with the casing-gate. Perhaps the coupling is carried out with the inner surface of the casing of the bolt, but we will not see this without disassembling the weapon.

It can be assumed, and it is most likely that the designers have developed a balanced automation system, this would explain such a high accuracy when firing from this pistol. In favor of such an assumption is evidenced by a rather large “beard” under the barrel of the weapon at the pistol, which is already made, not drawn. You can, of course, assume that the laser designator is located there, but then why additionally made a seat for additional devices. In addition, built-in LCCs are typical for small-sized pistols, which are positioned as a means of self-defense, usually they are removable devices. There is still a hidden commercial component, since you can first sell the gun, and then to it also LCC.

In general, one can only guess and make assumptions about the automation system, since no one except the designers of truth knows. Voluntarily, they do not disclose the secret, and the Geneva Convention limits the ability to get some specific information from them.

But the designers are ready for a long time and with rapture to talk about the features of the weapon that catches the eye immediately - the lack of a trigger, in the usual presentation of this detail.

Despite the fact that the New Edge pistol is positioned as a weapon of the future, it is still impossible to fire it using the power of thought. The designers failed to abandon the physical controls in the weapon, so in this respect everything is classically in arms. However, the location of controls, in particular, the trigger lever is completely unusual.

In order to shoot a pistol from New Edge, no movements of the index finger are required; instead of the index finger, the thumb is used. On the left or right side of the weapon, depending on which hand of the shooter has, is a rather large lever, which can be taken as a fuse switch. In fact, this lever controls the descent of the firing mechanism.

For some strange reason, it is this innovation in the arms that is given a lot of attention (something similar could be seen in the same Italy at the end of the nineteenth century). Representatives of the company claim that it is thanks to this location of the trigger lever that high accuracy is achieved when firing. However, at the same time it is said about the presence of a pistol with a classic location of the trigger, which is not inferior in its characteristics.

This arrangement of the trigger lever raises many questions, because until you try it, you will not understand the advantages. And you need to try for a long time and not with a couple of hundred rounds. Perhaps after the shooter adapts to a new weapon, the result will actually be better. However, the drawbacks of such a control are visible almost immediately.

First of all, it is almost impossible to get rid of moving the weapon to the side while holding with one hand. Especially if when you press the trigger lever, you need not only to lower the trigger, but also to cock it. That is, when firing by self-platoon about any accuracy of speech can not be. The second negative point is the safety of the handling of weapons. A sufficiently large control will cling when the gun is removed and sooner or later the descent will work. If you make the trigger lever small and unable to catch anything, it will be problematic to shoot a pistol when necessary.
In general, the disadvantages are obvious, but the pros still need to look. In addition, if there is a pistol with a classic trigger and it is not inferior in performance to a weapon with a side descent lever, then what is the point of all these gestures?

An interesting point is also the fact that on the basis of this gun is planned to create a carbine. In fact, the new weapon will represent the same gun only with a longer barrel. All this will be dressed “kit” with a fixed butt.
In addition, designers are developing quick-detachable device for silent shooting. This device will be attached to the frame of the gun and will not be connected to the barrel of the weapon directly.

From the foregoing, we can make a very simple conclusion: the fact that the designers point out as the main advantages of the New Edge pistol does not give it significant advantages over the existing samples. Of course, the low-stem axis of the barrel makes the weapon more obedient, maybe even a side descent lever after several months of training will seem more comfortable, but in sum it does not provide those advantages that are mentioned in comparative shooting from the 17 Beretta PxXNNX and New Edge Glock. This means that the main feature of this gun is hidden from the eyes, that is, the whole secret lies in the automatic weapon system.



SMG15 and SMG25 submachine guns

These submachine guns have not yet been demonstrated in the form of full-fledged working samples. While they exist only on paper and in the form of plastic models, which, of course, cannot shoot, for this reason, it is not yet possible to evaluate the specific characteristics of the weapon. However, the main essence of the design of these samples is already clear and some conclusions can already be drawn.

In fact, the separation of these two models is conditional. Both submachine guns have a similar design and subsequently, they will be quickly renamed, making it impossible for one option to conduct automatic fire and use of expanded-capacity stores for the civilian market.

From the point of view of design, the main feature of the new weapon was the location of the store, which is located on top of the receiver, similar to the FN machine gun P90, which in turn is similar in this node to the little-known machine gun HILL15.

As is clear from the designations of these samples, one option is powered from a magazine with an 15 cartridge capacity, the other has a 25 magazine capacity of cartridges, while the Р90 boasts about fifty cartridges in a shop. In connection with this, a quite expected question arises: why was it necessary to complicate the design of a weapon for the sake of a relatively small gain in store capacity? After all, any complication of the design is not only an increase in the cost of the final product, but also additional weaknesses in reliability, and in this case also a complication of such a simple procedure as a store equipment. In addition, this store location has a fairly large effect on the accuracy of fire as the ammunition is exhausted due to the shift in the balance of the submachine gun. In general, this solution is interesting, but it has quite a few shortcomings and only one “plus” is the capacity of the store, but in this case this plus is not implemented.

However, the designers managed to do something that can not be repeated with the classic location of the store in the handle - the layout of the bullpup. What does this mean for a submachine gun. The first is the preservation of the maximum length of the barrel with the minimum length of the weapon itself. The second and, in my opinion, the most important point is the possibility of pulling out the handle to hold it as far as possible, which makes the weapon more stable when firing automatic fire, and makes it more effective to automatically fire when using only one hand.

It is also interesting in this weapon that the designers did not limit themselves only to the layout possibilities for reducing the overall dimensions of the weapon. No matter how hard you try, there must be a shutter behind the barrel, and there must be space behind it to allow it to move. Accordingly, in order to reduce overall dimensions, it is necessary to reduce both the bolt group itself and the distance it travels during firing. It is certainly possible to achieve minimal results with an automation system with free or semi-free valves, but this design will be short-lived even when using modern materials, since there will be great loads at the extreme points of moving parts. For this reason, an automatic system with the removal of powder gases from the barrel bore was used in machine pistols. Details about the specific implementation, even locking the barrel bore naturally not yet, but any of the options for implementation gives enough room for further development of weapons. For example, it becomes possible to use powerful ammunition without significant changes in the design of the weapon.

It is interesting that the release of spent cartridges will be carried out below the pistol grip. In this particular case, we can say that the bolt will periodically chew the shooter’s clothes if it is sufficiently free in the wrist area. This is how a small feature can turn into a specific flaw, crossing out all the advantages of a new weapon.

The second feature of the new submachine guns should be another innovation, namely the counter of the remaining cartridges, the output of which will be carried out in the form of numbers on small screens on both sides of the weapon.

This decision is more than controversial. First of all, it should be noted that with transparent magazines it is much easier and more convenient to control the rest of the cartridges by simply looking away from the sights than by rotating the weapon in your hands trying to see the numbers. Secondly, if the screens are highlighted, it may be unmasked by the arrow.

The location of the screens is really not the best. Even if you hold the weapon with one hand, both screens will be buried, on one side with the phalanx of the index finger, and on the other hand with the thumb. Perhaps the only successful implementation of electronic accounting of cartridges in the store can still be considered a dim LED from the back of the receiver, which changes its color from green to red when the cartridges in the store come to an end. In the end, the task of such a system is not to indicate the arrow how many cartridges it has left, but promptly warn of the need for recharging in the near future.

Сonclusion

Of course, Technostudio Engineering’s pistol and submachine gun are very interesting and deserve attention. Come up with, and in the case of a gun also implement, not everyone can do the same, so the work of designers can only be assessed positively. Nevertheless, it is necessary to soberly assess the situation and understand that such weapons are unlikely to be seen in mass production in the near future. Even if the characteristics of the same gun New Edge really correspond to the declared ones, then ultimately such a weapon will be much more expensive and not everyone will agree with the same price, since only units need an ultra-precise pistol.

Do not forget about the reliability of weapons. It's no secret that the more complex the device, the greater the likelihood of failure of its individual components. This may also include not the simplest maintenance, the complexity of which grows in proportion to the complexity of the design. It is possible that the probability of this is very small, that the company will receive an order for a very small batch of its weapons to meet the needs of personal protection of high-ranking officials or special units of the army or police, but we hardly know about this promptly.

    Refusal from the detonation of gunpowder, as from the main method of accelerating a bullet along the bore, sooner or later,

    Apparently it has already arrived. Since the main "way to disperse a bullet" to this day is the combustion of gunpowder.

      The detonation in the calculations and the construction of the physical model is considered the same combustion, but with greater speed.

        In detonation, the propagation of the reaction occurs, among other things, due to the increasing pressure, and at least this parameter, if it affects the reaction rate in our case, is insignificant. So the explosion, the burning - yes, the detonation - no. Now, if the powder charge was homogeneous, then it would be possible to call this process a detonation, as I see it.
        If not right - correct.

      But if you go into details, the powder explodes, but does not burn, although in everyday life "burning of gunpowder" is common. In general, detonation and explosion are burning modes, as I recall.

        In general, somewhere like this ... Only here, with detonation, the crushing processes prevail over the propellant ones. So, for example, a shot with gunpowder from a hunting rifle leads either to “spitting” or to rupture of the barrel.

        Everything is much simpler. If the flame front is in front of the shock wave front, this is detonation. If not, deflagration. That is, subsonic combustion.
        No, with the ignition of gunpowder, of course, detonation combustion is possible, especially with smoky gunpowder. However, this is a big jamb fraught with problems with the trunk. 8)))

    "The same shooter shot, the distance was 25 meters to the target. From the Glock pistol 17 10 hits fit into a circle with a diameter of 40 centimeters. From a Beretta Px4 pistol all hits fit into a circle of 35 centimeters."
    Such accuracy suggests that the shooter is clearly not a professional, but an amateur.
    "A revolver’s fight is considered normal if all four holes or three (in the presence of a sharply deviating fourth hole) fit into a 15 cm diameter circle (circle) and if the average point of contact deviates from the control point by no more than 5 cm in any direction" .
    This is from the manual on stredovoy case for Nagan and TT.
    Judging by the fact that for over a hundred years, systems with balanced automation have not been put into service, there is no reason to wait for this in the foreseeable future.
    Even in sports weapons, where the score goes to fractions of a millimeter and where cost and complexity do not matter, such weapons do not apply, although in the second half of the sixties of the last century, Edwin Rohr from the Swiss Hammerli AG developed a sports pistol for high-speed shooting. balancer drive options - both with the help of powder gases discharged from the barrel (without mechanical connection with the shutter), and directly from the shutter through the gear and gear racks.

      This scheme very vividly reminded me of the design of the sports small-caliber pistol Khaidurov-Razorenov- "XP", and the firms "Hammerli" and "Walter" "distinguished themselves" by the release of practically "similar" XP-own pistols smile
      Apparently the Swiss somewhat complicated the design in order to patent the invented before him ??? In our design, back in the Soviet Union, there was such a tricky “mega-invention” - in the monthly “collection of inventions and rational proposals” I found “profile” inventions, and then I “improved” them with “all kinds of bells and whistles”, and thus regularly filed his "application" on the already invented .... winked
      I also thought that the shooter had some problems with shooting, it’s necessary to still “try” to give such a “bolshevik” spread of hits from “Glock” and “Beretta” for 25 meters yes... he must have been very, very "engaged" by TSE representatives winked yes ?!

From the Beretta Px4 pistol, all the hits fit into the centimeter 35 range. With the new gun New Edge, all ten bullets hit the circle a little more 5 centimeters. The cartridges used are the same 9x19.

        It is clear that the exact cost of a weapon cannot be stable. Many countries would like to purchase a Swift pistol. Its price is about 56 rubles. But depending on the additions to it, it can vary greatly. This cost can be called average. At least the quality of the gun justifies the price.

      PS I love these slow-motion shots of high-speed shooting, in which the fluctuations of the weapon and its components are clearly visible when fired ... but after all, at the dawn of cinema, this was a pipe dream of gunsmiths. When working out the sleeve trap in the DA machine gun (Degtyarev-Aviation), only high-speed filming made it possible to identify all elements of the flight path of the extracted sleeve in order to eliminate the causes of delays ...

    The first model is interesting. Well, they lowered the barrel by 5mm, the lever decreased by 10-20-30%, but not by 90. The location of the return spring under the barrel this effect will slightly worsen. In the large window in the third photo, you can see something unusual, maybe part of the shutter moves separately from the shutter frame.

      On the "third photo" it is clearly seen that the locking is carried out by turning the trunk yes !
      “Something unusual” is a locking protrusion on the breech of the barrel, which, after being disengaged with the corresponding stop in the extract window of the shutter, “moves separately from the shutter frame (so is the“ shutter frame ”, and not the shutter-casing? smile ) "...
      I don’t see anything unusual, this is a respected Article author "caught up with the fog" according to the laws of the genre, for intrigue, to pull ... wink
      Since the barrel was really lowered down "to the limit (although it was possible to" twist "and lower it even lower yes ))), then the shutter return spring had to be structurally designed as a tide in front of the "trigger guard" and it is unlikely that an additional balancer (compensator) was added to the return spring — it was useless there, unless to "express itself" to the developer.
      The thumb trigger, located on the back of the butt neck (where the barrel locking lever is located at the “turning” hunting rifles), was still in the “smoky” XNUMXth century on a Russian Cossack rifle (its “traditional” trigger wasn’t) and proved to be very good at shooting on a horse, riding a horse yes.
      The designers’s use of the side trigger was apparently dictated by the same considerations as to maximize the barrel down and hold the handle more firmly with all four fingers (with the exception of the trigger that supports the side), with the fingers of the hand?
      This gun is the same glamorous "concept", most likely designed for collectors, such as a gun with a "two-story" zigzag feed cartridge in the chamber .... IMHO

        Dear Mark, you don’t need to be so derogatory about your own hands, I’m more than sure that it’s real "Your hands are someone who needs hands (greetings from Yu. Detochkin))))" yes !
        I am very impressed by your constant search and continuous self-improvement (progress is felt well when comparing current texts with earlier ones) and how you are open for feedback from readers, continue in the same vein (not forgetting, however, the rule of “Occam's razor” winked wink ), and separate "roughnesses" and "clumsy" are for everyone, even for "more than one dog eating" venerable "specialists" in their work yes ! ...
        The unstable and sweeping "work" of the thumb is clearly visible on the video of the "demonstrative shooting" - the "ragged pace" of the shooting rumbles about it publicly, I think that the target there was "not demonstrative" smile .... search design, "originality" and no more, "no matter what the child is amusing" is about the developers of this gun ... IMHO
        I wish you success and, among others, I’m waiting for you (AlexMark Yesterday, 10:53 ↑
        Just about him I am preparing material)))) Your article about the Czech "balancer" wink !

          Hello. In fact, there are no shooters out of me, progress is observed of course, but apparently not given. It's like with football, a person can love to play football without knowing how to do it. But I'm not upset, but I can crochet laughing

            There’s nothing tricky about good pistol shooting, dear Mark! yes
            There is a Soviet post-war manual (written by a front-line officer) on shooting from an army pistol (read in the same breath, I don’t remember the name for years, but this sensible little book sometimes skips in the literature on weapons sites ... some perestroika and post-perestroika "experts" -bookwriters from it "torn" whole paragraphs, without reference to the source smile ) -in emphasis is correctly placed in it- a comfortable stand slightly at an angle to the direction of shooting, a straightened hand and an unstressed grip on the pistol grip (a little tighter than a spoon, basically the grip squeezes the middle finger under the trigger guard), correct operation (smooth, without jerking, movement along the axis of the trunk) of the first phalanx of the index finger, breathing and a clear, even fly, floating in the area of ​​the “blurry” target, do not “wait for the shot” and do not “aim” - you need to take it and you will succeed (I saw so many men and women, guys and girls, yes even children second, that the first time picking up a gun and go with having understood the basics of aiming and processing descent, immediately showed excellent accuracy of hits by 25 meters yes , and it’s easier to shoot from a rifle, it has support points, at least three winked, but the requirements for "breathing" and manufacturing are higher because of the longer shooting distance))). "Eyes are afraid, but hands are doing!"
            Remember, all obstacles are only in your head, a good shooter never says either out loud or "to himself" that he is "no (this doesn’t happen — you just need to believe in yourself and your strength!)"
            If you have a great desire to learn how to shoot well, train with an iron and idle, develop a sense of balance in every way - go not along the sidewalk, but along the curb (curb), if you go somewhere along the "non-intensive" railway, then on the rail, at first it may seem difficult, but then without difficulty you will go or run along the rail without losing any balance, like on a wide board. If you crochet (I envy smile ), then with the nerves you have a complete order, this is important when shooting!
            By the way, when shooting with a pistol it is not necessary at all to close the "non-targeted" eye - the "leading" eye will show itself! All pendulums, pendulums, are unnecessary things, like Hollywood methods of holding a pistol with two hands “like Mulder and Scully (or amerocopes)” and “walking after him”. Read the book by Mikhail Margolin, a wonderful weapons designer, "I am still a soldier," how he, being already blind, learned to shoot at a sound, a very interesting and informative book, useful in your chosen role as a gunsmith journalist. Very sensible and interesting knowledge can be gleaned from an interview with the talented designer-gunsmith Efim Khaidurov (in the 90s or early 2000s, his designs, with author's explanations, were described in several issues of the magazine "Shotgun") ...
            Go for it and do it!
            Best regards

      The video does not show any advantages over any other modern sports pistol.

      and what advantage can be in the “Swift”, which just redid the trigger? Yes, yes, the very Swift whom they first tried to shove into our army (fortunately, he fell in the initial stage) For those who are not in the subject I will explain. This gun is made by a small Italian company that produces light and noise weapons. Sold under the trademark Arsenal Firearms. The name of the company itself does not appear. A year ago in the USA, for the Swift they asked for almost 2 times more than for the Glock, explaining that it was a special sport (they shouted at us that it was designed specifically for the army), which means that by definition it is more accurate and more expensive. It is not in demand for a very large number of reasons, including due to poor trigger and a large toss of the barrel. This seems like the second attempt of the company to declare itself.

        And here are the answers to some thoughts of the author ...
        1. The size of the "beard":

        2. Automation operation: combination of braining and R-38 schemes
        although in the new model I can take a turn of the trunk, there is a place
        Well, the focus of another version of the gun, especially for those who say that the top of the shutter is different

    Beautiful futuristic toy. Fight only in greenhouse conditions. If you dig in the trenches in all the corrugations, dirt will fit and the weapon will be heavier by a couple kg.

    When Mark stops thoughtlessly reprinting other people's articles, a bunch of technical blunders due to machine translation without normal editing. A bunch of blunders purely technical, from insufficient knowledge of the topic. Yes, he has a lot of articles, but his knowledge is not enough, and the articles are essentially just reprints of foreign ones, with rare exceptions. Recently, the general description of projections existing only on paper, and not in metal. I’ll explain the latter in more detail - even if they show a video clip with weapons, but they don’t allow them to shoot at all except their little man, this weapon does not exist, no one has canceled special effects and computer graphics with video editing.

      Dear, please provide proof of your statements. Let's specifically any of my article and at least something remotely similar to it in any language. Well, what are you waiting for a month after the publication of the article to leave your "loud" comment leads to certain thoughts about your decency.
      Concerning knowledge. I always adequately relate to the fact that something corrected me or indicate errors in the comments. Found a mistake? Point specifically to her. You get the same "Author - Why not? And I will not say because I'm here alone d'Artagnan and the smartest!"
      Well, at the end of it all, write at least something yourself, show how you need, and we will appreciate your works, author impulses and ideas. Language grind - do not carry sacks.

        there is such a word ... but it does not mean a lack of knowledge. But you often use ordinary machine translation, and many have told you about this, and you are well aware of this. And your insults just confirm my words.

        To do this, you often need to write an article no less than yours, however lazy.

        1. Do not engage in outright lies at once several times per phrase. Remember you yourself admitted that you read all the comments, even if they are written after half a year. And you know very well (I have already told you twice) that I don’t look at the site every month, which means I can express my opinion no more often. So make a lie, there is nothing good in it.

          Again without arguments and concrete evidence?
          do not engage in outright lies

          This is what you are doing, just go in and look at the date of publication of the article and the date of your comments, do you want examples? I'm not too lazy, I will bring)))
          Summarize. You claim that I am reprinting other people's articles, evidence - 0. Accused of advertising, evidence - 0. In my liar here you are))) Well, or Troll.

    I also thought that the shooter had some problems with the shooting, it’s necessary to still “try” to give such a “bigish” spread of hits from “Glock” and “Beretta” for 25 meters ... probably he was very, very " Engaged by TSE Representatives ?!

    Well, why immediately engaged. Maybe he was just very drunk? And from "TSE" already soberly shot. Or, perhaps, sand got into the eye before firing from Glock and Beretta? And when from the "Italian" - I saw normally.
