The gun "Boa" under the cartridge 9X19 "Parabellum" interested the security forces


Russian security officials expressed interest in the latest Boa constrictor pistol chambered for the Parabellum 9X19 cartridge after this pistol was presented at the Army-2019 forum in June this year. As stated in TsNIITochmash, the version of the gun chambered for 9X19 mm is no different from the "army" version for the cartridge 9X21 mm. Only the caliber turned out to be smaller, all other characteristics, including high strength weaponsremained similar.

There is a consumer on the Boa constrictor with the 9X19 mm cartridge - law enforcement agencies interested in continuing this work

- said the designer, adding that on the “Army-2019” pistol caliber 9 × 19 mm was presented in two versions: tactical and sport.

Earlier it was reported that the "Boa" pistol of the caliber 9X21 mm began to enter the Russian armed forces to replace the Makarov pistol in service. The "boa constrictor" passed successfully state tests and is in the army for experimental military operation.

The "Boa" pistol was created at TsNIItochmash. The length of the "Boa" is 206 mm, the height is 145 mm, the width is 36 mm. The gun is characterized by a relatively small mass, which in unloaded form is 780 g, and in loaded form - 980 g. The store holds 18 cartridges. Picatinny rails are integrated on the pistol; they allow you to install laser target designators and tactical lights on the weapon.

    I hope that the gun is not under the 9x19 Parabellum, but under our cartridge of the same dimension. Just our 7H21 in terms of performance somewhere between 9x19 Para + and 9x19 Para ++

      Yes, these same journalists! As you can. The caliber is the same. The cartridge is different. It is clear that a pistol chambered for 9x21 should "digest" and reinforced cartridges under 9x19 wassat

        Absolutely shouldn't. 19 and 21 are the lengths of the sleeve. The shape of those sleeves may well be different and exclude interchangeability.

          exactly what they should not, for the actual caliber of the Russian 9x21 9.27mm (made on the basis of the cartridge 9x18 PM)

          9X19 para 9.03mm

        shouldn't. The length of the cartridges is different. The cartridge may (or rather, simply must) simply not fit into the chamber. A pistol is not a revolver to "eat" cartridges with different sleeve lengths. It is in the revolver drum that you can equip cartridges with different sleeve lengths, of the same caliber. Such a trick will not work with a pistol.

          The word digest means that the pistol mechanism will cope with the power of the reinforced Parabelum cartridge. And the fact that you need to change the barrel, and the barrel has another chamber - this is already obvious ...

        Pistol cartridges are, to put it mildly, not the most valuable trophy. And to choose a cartridge for a gun for the army based on the ability to use possible trophy b / supplies - this is clearly not the most important criterion. So, I think the choice is right - a more powerful cartridge - this is a prospect in the light of the constant growth of bullet resistance of individual av-in protection.

          And a lot of pistols in the army shoot? And he will be much better than 9x19, even against a broadhead with AK? An army pistol is now a very controversial thing and is generally used more as a weapon of self-defense in an emergency or to not surrender.

            Donavi, I agree with you: now AK army officers are the main weapon, and as an auxiliary, I would choose the Glock-compact under the luger cartridge.
            In Europe, these are now the most famous weapons, which means there will be no problems with cartridges.
            For the CIS, instead of Glock, as a second weapon, PM.

          and a lot of army men shoot pistols? And to provide ammunition (scarce, if about 9x21 speech) will have to.
          For the police and the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the cartridge is redundant. Do we have a lot of criminals and terrorists running in bronics? And if there is a CTO, then they will trample with pistols?
          I consider it most optimal to dwell on the 9x19 cartridge. Which is now one of the best (if not the best) in terms of qualities.

          Based on studies, comparative tests of various structural designs and after the Soviet military experts examined 81-mm Stokes-Brandt mortars captured during the military operations on the CER in 1929, it was decided to create an 82-mm mortar.

          The choice of a non-standard caliber was explained by Dorovlev that mines of 81-mm mortars of foreign armies could be used when firing from Soviet mortars, while 82-mm domestic artillery mines were not suitable for firing from mortars of foreign armies.

    It is not at all difficult to see who our "siloviki" are, Yandex knows everything.
    And "vice versa" nothing should be, tk. the army shoots at the enemy army, which is in helmets and body armor, and the police at the criminal without a helmet, but who is in a place full of random people.

    9X19 mm is no different from the "army" version chambered for 9X21 mm. Only caliber,

    There are not many pistols in the army. However, increased penetration is never superfluous.
    In this context, do not explain why for ПЯ full-time 7Н21, but not 9х19 FMJ; for GSh-18 even more evil 7N31, destructive for most Glocks? (I will give a tip - increased penetration). And yes, for the reason that the army doesn’t shoot a lot of pistols, supplying it with expensive 9x21 ammunition will not be very expensive.

It’s not clear that everything else is ok, but this constant “unparalleled” is already tired especially in the subject of pistols.

      I think that under 9x19, there are commercial prospects, unlike 9x21.

      And where is it written about "adoption"? For supply, as part of trial operation. Not the fact that it will take off at all ... more precisely, it will creep into the nomenclature, after all, a snake.

        It has been written about "adoption" for a long time, at the beginning of the year. And now they are reporting that they are "entering the troops"! I have been following the topic "Russian small arms" very carefully and for a long time!

    It is unlikely that the gun in the army is now more important than a helmet or boots. It’s definitely too much to spend money on developing a separate army pistol.

    It is more logical to make a gun for the police, and use it in the army. It is at least cheaper.

        90% of the police will be enough and PMa. Yes, it will be so for a long time.

        However, in some states the police walk with Beretta - and nothing.

    as an auxiliary, I would choose Glock-compact chambered for luger.

    Without a doubt, Glock is not the worst weapon. It could be ideal if it had not wedged after 25-30 shots in a short period of time, about 40-60 seconds.

    People are indignant out of the blue. Again, a dummy from PR campaign .. Nobody chose this gun anywhere. Someone from the special forces promised to buy a few pieces and for a year around this a whole typhoon of speculation and reflection.

    Why this boa constrictor of the same police. The precinct or opera with peps Makarov for the eyes. Makarov is a great car. With a good skill in shooting allows you to achieve excellent results. As my instructor in special and fire training said, you will learn to shoot with pm you will shoot from any system. This is again another squandering of money. The general from the Ministry of Internal Affairs saw that we also need such an interesting and beautiful pistol, the army does. And the fact that the army and the Ministry of Internal Affairs or another structure have different tasks is another question for them.

    That is the most powerful army in the world periodically announces a competition for a new pistol for the army, for the MTR, there are also different security forces ... A ZIG police officer is not the same as an army one, as a regular Glock would not be very suitable for the military . There, of course, it’s not without a chainsaw on the budget, but they don’t stop taking one or the other for trial operation. At the same time, even the ancient 1911A1 is not removed from service.
