In Russia, they created an analogue of the American M-16 under the cartridge of the caliber 7,62X39 mm

In Russia, they developed a variant of the American assault rifle AR-15 (M-16) under the Soviet cartridge of caliber 7,62X39 mm. Also developed option with the ability to conduct automatic firing. This was reported by TASS with reference to the message of the company LLC "Promtehnologiya", which produces weapon under the brand name ORSIS.

The Russian company Promtekhnologiya launched at its facilities in Moscow the production of a variant of the American assault rifle AR-15 (M-16) for the caliber 7,62X39 mm. Rifles are equipped with high-precision barrels ORSIS.



The analogue of the American rifle AR-15 was tested in the "Russian" caliber 7,62x39 mm. The bullet of the cartridge is twice as heavy as the bullet of the American machine gun cartridge 5,56 and, accordingly, has great energy at all distances of practical shooting. Weight and recoil parameters did not increase compared to the smaller caliber

- reported in the company.

It is stated that the general shot at the resource during the tests, at the moment, exceeded 17 of thousands of shots, while the accuracy and accuracy indicators remained within the declared norm. The rifle also went through various climatic tests.

Earlier, in September, the company launched into mass production the ORSIS-AR15J rifle - an analogue of the American semi-automatic rifle AR-15 chambered for caliber 5,56x45 mm.

      I wonder why you need it? The Americans organized the production of our weapons, motivating that it is more suitable for various rebels. And now we will make and sell American weapons, to whom?
      By the way, the Americans themselves are already abandoning their "shooters". The Marines are switching to German weapons, while the rest are choosing.

        As far as I understand, this is a civilian carbine. Needed for those who like the "arched" layout (and an assortment of all kinds of tuning, body kits, decorators), but the soul requires an Orthodox caliber 7,62.

        The Marines are switching to the HK417 (like the index did not mess up), which, in fact, is the same AR-15, only with a slightly modified gas outlet: the piston was added. By the way, such a gas outlet can be installed on almost any "arch" - the corresponding kits are on sale.

There is nothing wrong with products on different platforms on the market, and there everyone chooses according to their liking and wallet. And someone in their arsenal has both a Kalashoid and an arch.

            If by "AK" we mean a machine gun specifically of the '47 model, then yes, only African partisans are fighting like that now.

            If we talk about AK as a scheme / platform, then on this base it is easy to make cheap weapons "for extras" and more advanced products "for professionals." With the AR-15, in principle, the story is the same.

Either there is demand in the market, or the company is pumping its potential and testing new schemes in order to get some information about them. Those. development "on an initiative basis".

            Most buy these barrels not for "Americanness", but for certain characteristics and features that it possesses. For example, among the athletes at IPSC, many run with arches - they don't care about their origin, it is important for them to win the competition. Do not try to drag your ideological troubles to any nonsense.

              As far as I understand, there are problems of a purely economic and industrial nature. Well i.e. some parts are easier to buy abroad than trying to make by yourself.

              The ORSIS website says that a full production cycle has been established at the plant’s facilities. All parts are manufactured using the most modern equipment, ensuring high quality components at each stage of production. The main distinguishing feature of the modification are high-precision barrels ORSIS. In the basic configuration, the barrel is made of high-quality weapon steel by the method of turning using subsequent oxycarbonitration. It is possible to manufacture a barrel of 416R stainless steel using single-pass cutting technology, thereby significantly increasing the accuracy and resource of the rifle.

      "The bullet of the cartridge is twice as heavy as the bullet of the American automatic cartridge 5,56 and, accordingly, has a lot of energy at all practical shooting ranges." But the speed is 5.56x45 - 990 m / s, and 7,62x39 - 715 m / s. We take a physics textbook and see that the energy is proportional to the mass and the SQUARE of the speed, therefore the muzzle energy is higher for the Kalash in the ratio of 2200 against 1800 J, i.e. about 20%. One hell, both are now too little to overcome PPE, and our cartridge also has no ballistics. We need a new cartridge with an energy of 4000-4500 J.

        Your conscripts will close their eyes from fear when shooting, and the automation will die with terrible force.
        I shot from a bolt nine, amid my 308 it’s a monster. Entertaining to shoot from this is decidedly unpleasant.

          Modern rifle ammunition, 7,62x54, 7,62x51 almost reaches 4000 J, if you decrease the caliber and increase the speed and lateral load on the bullet, you can reach the desired value and maintain an acceptable recoil. The main fire will, of course, be single. Simply, if in a few years the PPE is built into the exoskeleton, automatic ammunition can be thrown into the trash heap or used against the "Papuans" and for punitive purposes.

            The energy there revolves around 3500. In any case, at 308.
            If I don’t understand something, then if you have 4000 JJ on the cut, then the return will be conditionally the same, that you fire a 90gr or 180gr bullet, it will be different speed simply.
            And so that 6,5 bullets, for example, had an energy of 4000 J or more, it clearly should have a velocity of more than 1000 m / s on the cut. Can you imagine the size of the sleeve? Or do you have tungsten bullets?

            No offense, these are some kind of wet dreams of a theorist.

          At 7.62x39, the diameter of the bottom of the sleeve is too large to port it directly - the resource is very low
          For the mind, you need to add the diameter of the bolt and everything else, which entails the withdrawal of ALL sizes
          The question is whether this was done in ORSIS or before us the primitive cut the AR-15 in 223, when the trunk can withstand 25 thousand, and the bolt will die on the fifth thousand

      It is necessary to produce.
      Send to numerous landfills, including Siberia and the Far East.
      See how mechanics, sights, ergonomics work in our Russian conditions.
      Train personnel to use the weapons of a potential enemy.
      That our soldier understood the algorithm of actions of the American infantryman when firing.
      How does he eliminate failures and breakdowns.
      What fears, going with such a rifle into battle.
      This knowledge will help in the main thing - to win.

        You compared. What goes into the NATO army, and what we produce, is like an original AK in Russian factories and an Indian licensed copy.

      Interestingly, did we decide to re-equip the amers, or was there simply nothing to do?

      Let's Abrams rivet under the 125 mm gun with automatic loader.
      Something recently began to do a lot of such garbage ...
      Either the AR-15 was made from our materials, then the M-16 was under our cartridges.
      The only question is, why?
      Or maybe this is our insidious plan?
      Quietly at night we’ll replace all M-16s with M-16x7,62 in their army, they’ll gather for battle, but the cartridges don’t fit ...
      And then we have a lot of them and they will buy for each war as cute.
      And Russia will become rich, although it is unlikely that dollars are not provided with gold, just dirty paper.

        This is a civilian carbine. It is a private company. It produces it in order to earn money, the Russian civilian arms market, mainly consists of Kalashnikov’s clones, they are also taking on a new AR niche.
        The caliber was changed as it is one of the most affordable in our market than the native one (5,56 on45 mm)
        And you don’t need a lot of brains, you just need to know our market at least a little.

      Fine! Well done! she has a great future in the civilian market. In addition, it is an Orsis - the best serial manufacturers of trunks at the moment in Russia. It’s not that the famous Kalashnikov concern which, hands should be cut off for manufactured products,. The only thing that Orsis has is its trunks is tender, so the cartridge used should most likely be of high quality here or buy expensive cartridges or make them yourself. Although little is known about this rifle, maybe everything is hawala ... The price of 140000 tr is expensive but the average residents of megalopolises who are interested will be able to afford it. In a province where salaries are lower, only a few will be able to purchase ...

      It seems that I was only interested in the phrase about the fact that the recoil has not changed compared to the 5,56 cartridge?
