All documents for the adoption of the gun "Boa" in service transferred to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation




The Rostec state corporation reports that the pistol underwent experimental military operation. The military have no complaints about weapons.

Rostec reports that the Boa constrictor was exploited during the final tests in true extreme conditions. It is enough to voice the temperature range: from -50 to + 70 Celsius. 120-degree temperature dispersion in no way affected the combat functionality of the latest Russian small arms.

The creation of the "Boa" took about five years. The preliminary tests of the gun from TsNIITochmash began to take place in the spring of 2016 of the year.

What are the parameters of the gun?

Its dimensions: length 206 mm, height 145 mm, width 36 mm. The equipped weight of the gun 980 g. In the unloaded version, the gun weighs 200 g less. The Udava magazine holds 18 cartridges of 9x21 mm caliber. The lethal force is such that from a distance of 50 m a bullet pierces a sheet of armor up to 4 mm thick.

It is noted that the gun can be used in all military branches, including as an effective melee weapon.

            In vain we write off the legendary “Makar”, even the chief designer of the “boa constrictor” said that his pistol was by no means “a killer of the PM”. After all, these are pistols of different classes. Nobody compares the Tiger and BT-7 tanks. "Boa" is definitely not intended for mass carrying. It is not compact.

              Somehow suspiciously quickly, he went through all the stages of adoption, especially since the weapon is specific.

              For example, Lebedev’s pistol was heard much earlier, but there is no information about his adoption.

              And enough to compare Boa constrictor and PM. The boa constrictor is the heir to the SPS pistol (Vector / Gyurza).

      So I want to say - more pistols, good and different!
      But seriously, I personally do not have a clear position on this topic.
      On the one hand, it is good when the weapon is uniform, and on the other, different tasks require different weapons.
      What is the variegation in types, we clearly see on the example of tanks.
      And re-equipment with small arms is not cheaper than with new tanks.

                Explain the need for rearmament on a pistol under the cartridge 9 * 21. How do you justify such financial expenses. Why does an infantry officer need such a barrel if he uses a machine gun in battle. They don’t converge in hand-to-hand combat, at the present time it is nonsense. Everything is decided by artillery, aviation, armor. For specialists, I wrote above, but such a gun is necessary for those who work shortly, cleaning rooms, capturing prisoners. And what's the point of the rest? If the same flyers, following the example of Syria, take with them the AKSU, 120 rounds, 2 grenades and APS. One can understand and welcome the adoption of the PP. Compactness, automatic shooting, increased range compared to a pistol.
                I am 100% sure that everything will be as if they were accepted into armament, and practically did not join the troops.
                And leave the scumbag. There is something to write about the case; I’ll read it with pleasure and argue or not, I just agree.

                  Yes, the trend towards an increase in the penetration capacity of small arms due to modern personal protective equipment has long been understood. Now conflicts for the most part take place in cities, and this is close combat, and if something happens, then the pistol must be guaranteed to penetrate the helmet and body armor of the enemy, "Makarov" is no longer suitable for this.

                  This pistol simply did not have a chance to be out of service - it was developed by TsNIITOCHMASH - the ultimate truth in weapons, and they’ll just push their weapons and, to the detriment of others, endow them with unprecedented characteristics.

        Why are you attached to this PM. It is gradually being removed from service, replacing it with the PYa "Grach". And this is surprising. The PYa was adopted in 2003. Since 2004, it began to be produced in small batches for the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the pistol began to enter the troops in large quantities since 2011, i.e. the army just switched to a new cartridge 9 * 19, less than 8 years have passed since they decided to switch to a new cartridge 9 * 21 and new weapons. Meanwhile, the PYa has already fully re-equipped the Western VO, partly the Eastern. All units of the Russian Guard located on the territory of the Southern Military District and partly of the RA, units of constant combat readiness of the same district. So The PM remained only in units located in the interior of the country and in units that did not directly participate in combined arms battles.
        Ammunition has been developed for pistols ПЯ, ГШ that can be flashed without any problems any military body armor - 7Н21, 7Н31. Bronik holds an AKM bullet, but passes in front of these cartridges. And now everything is down the drain.

Why does the army need full-size barrels with 18 rounds? They still will hardly shoot from it, but they will be tortured to carry it.

      The new cartridge, in the first place, as I understand it, is intended to counter the situation when fighters of the other side everywhere have personal protective equipment. When the PM was created this was not. And all other attempts to create pistols chambered for 9x18 or 9x21 were based on this. The possibility of defeating the enemy in the SIZ

      But at the same time, a submachine gun chambered for 9x19 in any case will lose to the machine with its cartridge. It turns out combat efficiency will decrease in favor of convenience. And God forbid, the enemy will be in the defense. And what will a submachine gun chambered for 9x19 or a pistol chambered for 9x18 against such an enemy do?

        But at the same time, a submachine gun chambered for 9x19 in any case will lose to the machine with its cartridge.
        Not convincing: if the "automatic" - AKSU, then its energy shot is better compared with the PP, and the weight, dimensions (ammunition and the device itself)?

      Something I didn’t really meet, so that in the late 40s, when a decision was issued to create this pistol, body armor was in the army. If something happened, then most likely something artisanal and extremely rare. It is unlikely that in the TTZ at the PM there was a point about hitting a target located in armored

      More convenient with PP - yes, a smaller weapon - yes. But I repeat, it is unlikely that the cartridge from the PP can compete with the cartridge from the AK

        If AK is AKSU then you should consider a short barrel. And if the PP was not made for short combat, but for a distance of 200 meters and has a normal barrel, the difference will be indistinguishable.

      I don’t know, I don’t know. The AKSU still has an aiming range of 350-500 m, and for the PP-2000 - 200 meters.
      The barrel length for AKSU is 206,5 mm, for PP-2000 - 139 mm, energy for a cartridge 5,45x39 1360-1430 J, for a cartridge 9x19 Pa - up to 600 J. IMHO the difference is distinguishable. Even if the fights will go on a short distance (200-300 meters), the energy of a bullet twice as large will have its effect. IMHO only a big plus in the PP-2000 - is its compactness. But in any case, this is a submachine gun, roughly speaking, an automatic machine with a pistol cartridge.

      A pistol mass cartridge is also a cartridge for a machine gun. And now also for a pistol-based carbine. Increased armor penetration and range.

      Why does an army pistol need increased penetration and range if the army does not have units armed with pistols and intended to participate in a combined arms battle? And the officer and PM will shoot themselves "above the roof". The army specialists "also do not need it, they have their own APB and PB. Why this garden at all? And the tactics of the troops are not provided for with PP.

      Do not speak nonsense! "... but there is a machine gun ..."! Then, in your opinion, you didn't need the VSS Vintorez rifle and the AS Val automatic machine based on it? Don't need an ASh-12 assault rifle? Then why did the Defense Ministry order them from the industry just for the special forces ?! No one with one machine gun, no matter how good it is, in the Army, and even more so special forces, will not do! You need a lot of weapons and as much variety as possible!

      Remain nonsense to yourself. I don’t know how much VSS and AU were needed, tk. I did not see them appear in the army, but I know that the regular AKMSN2 with PBS coped well with all the "regular" tasks. And at the expense of the orders of our post-Soviet Ministry of Defense - it is enough to remember about Mistral to understand "why".

      From AKSU, the same exercises are easily performed as from AK (at 300-400 m.) That is, a normal machine. And if you remove the store, it fits easily in the case under the armpit so that it is not visible from under the jacket. Tested back in the late 80s. Why the hell is an ersatz weapon like PP, if there is an AKSU?

      I fundamentally do not understand this ridiculous commitment to 9x21 caliber? Muzzle energy is not more or even less than in individual copies of 9x19. In my opinion, its effectiveness is exaggerated, such as the invented wunderwafle, but in fact bullshit and show-offs.

      Kozlov's gun good (PC aka "Boa constrictor") "eats" cartridges 9x21. Are they already being mass-produced (in-line)? This conversation is not about the PC itself (Kozlov pistol good ), and talking about the "new" cartridges 9x21, for the army they need to be "riveted" in the millions, or will there be 1-2 BK (1-2 clips) per "barrel"? what
