New weapons 2018. Revolvers National Standard Super Sport

22
Korth revolvers are among the most famous on the market, they stand out primarily for their quality and price, which is far from being as democratic as many other manufacturers. Price, as mentioned above, due to the quality and, accordingly, high performance weapons. However, far from all of these same characteristics are important enough to buy weapons at a price 5-6 times higher than the more common and "popular" models. And frankly speaking, not everyone will be able to fully unleash the potential of a weapon, since this requires constant practice and natural inclinations. As a result, such weapons are in demand among athletes and those for whom shooting is little more than just a hobby.




This year, the company has released two versions of a revolver focused specifically on the sports market. These revolvers are designated National Standard Super Sport STX and ATX, they differ only in the frame material of the weapon.

Appearance of revolvers National Standard Super Sport



Although the beauty of the weapon, and beauty in general, is a subjective concept, it is impossible not to notice that the revolvers look at least expensive, although it would seem that what can be done with such a simple design to achieve a similar effect. First of all, sights, which allow adjustment, both in firing range and adjusting the clearance between the whole front sight, are striking. So, only the sights say that the weapon is clearly sporting. About the "sportiness" says the handle of the weapon, the base of which is made thin enough for a confident grip, and under all the fingers of the hand holding there are places. To facilitate and accelerate the process of reloading the weapon, the lever unlocking the drum protrudes beyond the frame, but the trigger needle seems too small, but conclusions can be made only after the weapon is in the hands, which, unfortunately, I cannot boast.



In some stupor impose mounting strap, which are located on both sides of the barrel and in front of the whole weapon. In addition, another mount bracket can be installed under the barrel. It is absolutely incomprehensible for what purpose they are present in such a quantity on a revolver, especially considering its sporting bias. It can be assumed that due to the greater weight, shifted to the muzzle, the weapon shows a higher stability when shooting. This is fully justified, since it is unlikely that someone will carry such a revolver daily, which means, in this case, the weight can be relatively large, in reasonable aisles. It is worth noting that the mounting bracket is a distinctive feature of all the latest revolvers of the company.

Characteristics of the revolver National Standard Super Sport



Revolvers are available in two versions, as the name implies, with a steel frame and aluminum alloy frame. The STX version has a mass of 1,65 kilograms, a variant of the weapon with the designation ATX weighs 1,32 kilograms. The rest of the characteristics of the weapon are the same. So, both versions of the revolver have a length of 280 millimeters with a barrel length of 152 millimeter. They feed from a six-chamber drum with .357 Magnum cartridges. Trigger mechanism, self-dual action, adjustable for force and descent course. In addition to the .357 Magnum cartridges, the revolver can also use the 9x19 and .38 Special cartridges, after replacing the drum.

Conclusion



In conclusion of this mini-review I would like to voice the price for this weapon. The company's website is priced at euro in 3853, while it is not possible to purchase these revolvers yet. Needless to say, at such a price, the demand will be low, and even among athletes there will not be so many people who want to buy this weapon. However, this revolver can still be considered not only as sports equipment, but also as a status thing, and in such a context there will be much more people willing to purchase it.

    I’m sitting and thinking: it’s kind of banned for free sale ... but guns and other revolvers are regularly advertised, including with such articles. So there is a need for this? So there is a demand for this?

      There is a demand for news in the world of weapons. There is interest from an aesthetic point of view, at least to look and read. But this does not mean the need to legalize the short-barrel in Russia.

          Why do you personally need a trunk? For more self-confidence or in front of the women? Just do not tell me about the various barmaley, constantly climbing into all the windows and doors of your apartment ...
          Take statistics on injuries and pneumatics, and imagine that these were battle trunks. Now answer the question, how many people would be buried and how many would sit down for a long time ...?
          The population is not yet ready for the legalization of the short-barrel, as a means of self-defense.

            The need for legalization of the short barrel in Russia is evidenced by life in Russia itself. More screaming than talking.

            I personally don’t need it, because in the first place there are a couple of absolutely legal, and in the second, as one friend of mine said, everyone can offend an artist, but if an artist weighs 120 kilos and has a rank in combat sambo, not everyone will decide "Of course, I weigh five kilograms less and I have a boxing rank, but, I think, this is not very critical.

      There is a need, there is a demand. That's just for those who do not have money to buy the prize have to satisfy him with an ersatz in the face of beautiful photos, articles, videos. It’s like having a beggar and a hungry person having to saliva to stare at a rack full of food for which he has no money.

    There used to be a shooting discipline "service pistol / revolver shooting". later there, it seems, only pistols remained ...
    Is shooting from the service revolver still preserved?
    And so, except in the collection, such weapons can not be adapted.

    So much excess metal around the barrel, but the trigger is lightened to the limit - face design culture

    “In some stupor they drive the mount straps, which are placed on both sides of the barrel and in front of the whole weapon. In addition, another mount strap can be installed under the barrel. It is absolutely unclear for what purpose they are present in such quantity on the revolver, especially given its sports "We can assume that due to the greater weight shifted to the muzzle, the weapon shows a higher stability when firing."
    On the one hand, the author has a laudable desire to introduce his own vision of the issue into the materials. On the other hand, “one’s vision” should be based on high theoretical and practical training and careful study of the material so as not to write some absurdity.
    Firstly, they don’t buy such weapons “for show off” (status item). Secondly, no one at such a price will release such weapons at a price. Such firms produce highly specialized products for a certain category of consumers and just like that, in the hope of chance, such weapons are not made. It is possible that it will not be available for sale. Will be sold on order.
    Thirdly, in order not to be amazed at the number of Piccatini bars, you need to go to the IPSC or DSB website and see what exercises are in practical shooting competitions.
    Well, and fourthly, from below - this is not Piccatini, this is a removable weight.

    In our country, a revolver with a barrel under the lower chamber was developed. It seems to be a step forward, but something I do not see either a continuation with us, or analogues abroad.

      The reason is primarily that the revolver is now an extremely specific thing for extremely specific tasks. The mass user, for absolutely objective reasons, prefers a semi-automatic pistol. As a result, revolvers are relatively few in the market.

      Even earlier, revolvers with a barrel under the lower chamber were made by the Italian company Rhino.

        Not earlier. AEK-906 was developed in 98-99. And the Italian Rhino - in 2009. And even earlier - Mateba Unica 6, which is also self-loading.

    The population is not ready ... Why so categorical? Do you have accurate statistics about readiness, or not readiness of the population? Let us speak for ourselves. If you yourself are not ready, then no one offers you to buy a trunk. For example, in my time, during the three years of service in the SA, I completely learned the culture of handling weapons. And I have a legal hunting smoothbore as soon as half a century. And I know a lot of people who are very good at weapons and have long been quite "matured" for the banal short-barrel and for something more serious. You don’t have to equal everyone to one comb, and not everyone will immediately run to the store to buy TTs, he costs money, but not everyone has them. It is much easier to take an ax or a kitchen knife, than, in fact, when using "household appliances" people use it.
    And so, the easiest way to say "our people are not ready"! He and an ax with a hammer are more than enough. Yes, he already has a finger in the sky, and he gets a fork in the eye. Where else is he a fool and a gun!
    Thank God this is your personal opinion, that's all ... hi

    Mark, you are always on top. Thank. The design shows that the SPORTS revolver sharpened by the collection group. Although the discipline of this sport is not entirely clear, the fact that it is never an Olympic discipline does not go to "grandmother." In America, there are many fans of revolvers, which, in my opinion, is not justifiable from the point of view of “usability ..” But from the point of view of working for groups, a revolver can be very good. There is almost no recoil of the barrel quite different than in most self-loading pistols. And even the average shooter can show better results than with a pistol. In my opinion, this is a good pistol for weapons "revolvers." But there is a small nuance ... basically the revolvers in the states are elderly people, their eyesight is not so good, and they all put optical sights especially on large calibers. And this is the benefit of this revolver. Put what you want. This toyue is the undeniable advantage of this pistol. I like the "Smith" revolvers more. But in my collection there is not one. In practical shooting, a revolver is not needed. But they are made much better than the Taurus

      There is practically no toss of the trunk

      Dear, you are positioning yourself almost as a professional in shooting! And to make such a mistake ... Just the revolver throws stronger, although the recoil is less in comparison with pistols of the same caliber, and all the shooters know this. And if you do not know, smoke at least Youtube. Especially confusing practical shooting with sports.

      Really? And the fact that almost all elderly shooters participate in the classes "serial" and "standard" revolver in IPSC or the same USPSA divisions. And the names of the classes themselves speak for themselves, they do not use optics.

        I never go through the proxy. Does this mean anything to you already? I speak and write only about what I know and saw. Yes, and enthusiastic rifleman and armed to the "teeth" I have plenty. And I’m doing rifle as well, that is, I’m mainly doing it. Pistols excite me insofar as. I do not analyze Russian experience and shooting disciplines. I am writing about what is happening in the shooting world across the ocean, where you have never been and are unlikely to be. So you screwed up nerdy old man.
