About the “silent” VSS Vintorez sniper rifle

57

One of the features of the modern blogosphere is video discussion. weapons without its direct presence "on hand". Experts are invited to broadcast on video blogs and talk about the performance characteristics of weapons, often presenting their own position, largely subjective.


In Dmitry Puchkov’s studio, Klim Zhukov talks about such sniper weapons as the Vintorez Air Force. This is a rifle, which was developed in the 80s at the Central Research Institute of Tochmash in the city of Klimovsk by gunsmiths, led by Peter Serdyukov. Pyotr Ivanovich Serdyukov is a co-author of various weapons, including AS Val.

BCC (special sniper rifle) "Vintorez" was adopted in 1987.

Klim Zhukov:

The salt of Vintorez, as we know, is that it is silent. Or, so to speak, very low noise.

We are not talking about weapons that are equipped with special devices for jamming, but rather about silent weapons - whose low noise is ensured by their own design features.

The video also discusses the noise of a supersonic bullet, the sound of which is "impossible to hide."

The arguments of Klim Zhukov by Dmitry Puchkov are presented in a video on the author’s YouTube channel:

    I shot with her an armor-piercing cartridge for a killed UAZ from 50 meters, everything was ready to take off, there were three rounds in turn, I shot a store, a suitable machine.

            Roma hello! hi I didn’t shoot it further than 200m ... as you know - I’m not a fan of automatic shooting at all ... for two hundred - it went relatively normal, short. Anyway - this is not a machine gun! The device is highly specialized, Great for assault units. Classic Army Sniper - not needed, absolutely. stop

            The question is not discussed about accuracy, but about the possibility of firing bursts from the BCC.
            Bursts of all weapons are not too precise. To suppress the enemy.

              Done correctly said! hi due to its highly specialized nature - bursts are fired in the active phase of the assault to suppress or to cover.

                What kind of suppression can we talk about with a magazine capacity of 10 rounds? VSS was always equipped with five 10-round magazines, and it was a great success to take on a business trip a couple of Val-ovskikh stores. Yet 20 rounds is not 10.

    He shot from a civilian version (the barrel is longer, and, therefore, the integrated silencer is just a declaration; the cartridge is not special, the bullet is super-sonic, there is no question of noiselessness). Normal device. Lightweight, manoeuvrable. To clean is quite normal, and not to compare with the bourgeoisie ...

    There is one "antires" on the topic ... Basically, it is indicated that for "Vintorez" there are magazines for 10 and 20 rounds ... But it seems to me that "someone somewhere" claimed that they were produced in small quantity and stores for 30 rounds. I have deeply forgotten this fact ... maybe I messed up something ... or such stores were intended for "Val" ... but, considering that the stores are "the same" ... Yes, more ... such stores are difficult was "find"! PS Maybe someone will say more precisely ...

    in general, this unit was created for firing up to 300 m (normal subsonic machine, but it’s impossible to shoot at a moving target at 300m - the pulley flies for a long time, the pulley mass allows the choir to have dead power, but the approach time is too great.) This unit is good up to 100m for any targets, well, for motionless up to 300 .... 400 if you're lucky ....

    I honestly tried (despite the underlined primitive "level of material presentation") to listen to this "narrator" to the end, but "did not master it" - "dude", giggling foolishly at the same time, does not "appreciate" the time of his viewers at all, and Dmitry Puchkov in this (in vain !!!) he frankly indulges and clowns "plays along"! request

    It will be interesting to see if, on the subject of VSS and VAL, the dear Sergey Shumakov from "Truth of Life" removes his video for YouTube! good
    I like the stories (and the stories of weapons in particular) in its presentation, very clearly, specifically, in a clear simple language, without idiotic chuckles and without any self-image!
    I recommend finding and watching the already existing Shumakov videos to all inquisitive weapon-loving comrades, since I myself learned from them (in contrast to this hideously prolonged Buchkovsko-Zhukov vulgar "emptyness") a lot of new and interesting things for myself! yes

    In the design of the VSS, I like the concept of an integrated muffler, structurally "licked" compactness and the possibility of quick modular disassembly and assembly (before transportation or combat use, respectively), which was originally incorporated into it!
    And also, I liked the design "highlight" with the message to the bolt carrier (at the beginning of the roll-up phase of the bolt carrier with the bolt) part of the energy of the compressed (when rolling back the rifle's moving parts) spring of the drummer (until it is put on a combat platoon) - this is a big plus for the reliability of the rifle at low temperatures, in the absence of lubrication and in conditions of strong pollution (and it gets dirty, due to the gas outlet automation with an integrated silencer and small internal volumes of the milled receiver, very quickly, but it is cleaned very "baggy" and by no means "in one motion" -for complex internal "drops"!)!

    Of course, the experienced eye, according to the elements of the VSS (VAL) automation, clearly sees the individual design style of Peter Ivanovich Serdyukov - his vivid desire for "self-expression" even at the cost of some overcomplication of the "machine" being created and his (his assistants, too) precisely "design (and not design and technological) "style of thinking, manifested in" pure designers (from the drawing board) ", fundamentally" do not bother "with subsequent production, and even exploitation (and" exploitation in the troops "is generally a separate song! winked ), their creations!
    As that, "regardless" of the inevitable technological difficulties (especially in conditions of low technical equipment and culture of production, from surrogates of materials and low-skilled personnel, as often happens in wartime conditions, if it is possible, in such conditions Serdyukov's VSS will hardly be efficient and will be able to provide the minimum resource of shots ??!) when he produces a "designed" mechanism. wink

    About the current (it is obvious that it is no longer the author's, not Serdyukov's, otherwise the end result should have been creative, and not "as always"!) (regardless of the pedestrian-raid "way of life" of special forces, when "a straw hurts the back of a camel", and he also needs to "twist and slip into the eye of a needle"!), but did NOT realize the possibility of processing the internal structure of the mechanisms and the receiver of the rifle on a new level for the better (IMHO), probably, it was not worth remembering .... (it's like in the old Soviet joke "about Buryats and a geologist" ... "Buryats, however, do not do that!")

    In general, I agree that VSS is an outstanding, highly specialized (originally created by order and for the needs of our "secret police" -KGB), a sample of weapons (for its time), although, nevertheless, "a little belated (in this I support the opinion of the distinguished comrade Tihonmarine! hi ) "! good

    On the site, someone has long been accustomed to sticking videos in this way, instead of writing your own article. If Dmitry Yuryevich needed this, he himself would have inserted a link to Opera.ru here. And then the readers in the discussion actually write an article for the author. Some kind of degradation is going on! Unwind (though not in this case) their crafts from YouTube ...
