Overview of MR1 - Kalashnikov self-loading rifle


"Kalashnikov Media" prepared a video in which he presented a novelty of the Kalashnikov group of companies - the experimental self-loading rifle MR1. This is the first civilian version of a promising army rifle created for the Russian Ministry of Defense.


MR1 was released in a small experimental batch and will be available by reservation in limited quantities on the website and in the Kalashnikov official store.

The developer introduced a product that will be produced under two types of cartridges: 7,62x54R and .308Win. The MR1 version, chambered for 7,62x54R, has an original folding stock and a barrel length of 530 mm. Another product has a stock from Sureshot Armament Group and a barrel length of 410/530 mm (depending on version).

It is noted that the main advantages of MR1 are low weight, compactness and convenient controls. This self-loading rifle is intended for hunting, as well as for "entertaining" and sports shooting.

In the video presented, Georgy Gubich, a specialist at Kalashnikov, will examine in more detail the characteristics of the product and test the new product in action. Overview:

    Probably the only product that will be in demand while humanity lives is weapons.

        There will be no food, there will be no life - this is unnecessary to discuss. smileI had in mind products that can be dispensed with, but they are bought for entertainment, pleasure, etc. most men always attract weapons, Konstantin rightly noted that if you have weapons, then getting the rest is not a problem. smile

          In fairness, it should be noted that even with weapons to get something where it is not a priori, it is not possible.
          A weapon is a peculiar tool: it can be both a means of attack and a means of defense. And men (the bulk) are attracted by the second property. There is less aggression inherent in human nature than other qualities.
          Most likely, all men are attracted to weapons with their functionality and well-coordinated mechanisms. A certain brevity in obtaining the desired result: no need to explain or prove something, just pull the trigger (press the button) ... Remember?
          Press the button - you will get the result
          And your dream will come true
          Press the button, but why are you not happy
          You have nothing to strive for

      The rifle is primarily intended for export, because there are too many fakes and licensed copies of various modifications of the AK in the world. It's time to update the lineup. She will probably have a different name with us.

        But is there not enough letters in the Kalashnikov surname that have the same spelling in the Russian and Latin script. Mandatory to apply various. Or is it a hint of Yu. Stouner with his ARs

    In 1947, the designer of the Kovrovsky plant, Alexander Zaitsev, cut down the layout of the first Kalashnikov and Co. assault rifle of the 1946 model, which consisted of an upper and a lover, and converted it into a more technological “case” with an opening top cover, later known as AK-47.

    After 73 years, the domestic arms industry was finally able to release a model of small arms from a steel upper and aluminum lover, the accuracy of which from using optical sights does not depend on the degree of wear of the lid mount.

    You see, after another 70 years this civilian model will be adopted by the Republic of Armenia under the slogan of returning to the origins of 1946 laughing

        The Kalashnikov and Co. assault rifle lost the first stage of the competition in 1946 due to the failure to comply with the TTT GAU of the USSR Ministry of Defense (like all other models submitted to the competition) and was sent for refinement to the Kovrov Plant, where full-time designers and technologists took over it.

        The competition commission did not prescribe to designers what to finalize in their models; it had another task - to conduct an objective comparison of models with TTT.

        Kovrov designers and technologists re-arranged the future AK-47 to their taste and entered into an acute conflict with Mikhail Kalashnikov, who refused to accept their work. But after Kalashnikov was tapped on the head by his co-authors from the Shchurovsky training ground, he was forced to agree with the Kovrov version of the layout of the machine (which became cheaper in production, but there was no need to solve the problem of installing optics for TTT).

          At the first stage, the AK-46 took 3rd place, but was the only one to fulfill all the conditions of the competition.

          This is where such an interpretation of the temporary design team in Kovrov led by M.T. Kalashnikov comes from?

            How can I complete all TTT (unlike other competitors), but at the same time take third place? laughing

            The TTT competition of 1946 included at least the requirement of accuracy of automatic fire from uncomfortable positions at a distance of 100-300 meters at a level not lower than PPSh. This requirement has not been met by any of the competitive models. In 1947, accuracy was excluded from the TTT.

            See the recollections of Kalashnikov.

              The first stage included reloading with an attached store. In the second stage, this requirement was removed. And the third place just according to the test results is not a problem.
              And about the "acute conflict" is it still possible?

                Charging is a trifle, a bummer on accuracy is the main departure from TTT.

                Too lazy to delve into the Internet and look for articles about Zaitsev with quotes from Kalashnikov’s memoirs about the situation with the machine gun, re-arranged in Kovrov.

    Employees of the Shchurovsky training ground Lyuty, Kanel and Malimon, as well as full-time designers of the Kovrov plant under the leadership of Zaitsev, were part of an informal design group under the nominal leadership of Sergeant Kalashnikov. The curator of the group was Deikin, a member of the State Autonomous Institution of the USSR Ministry of Defense, who was a member of the commission for summarizing the test
    https://www.kalashnikov.ru/na-puti-k-ak-47-2/

    This explains Lyutogo’s undisguised lobbying in the process of summing up the results of the first stage of the competition and closing the eyes of the competitive commission for gross violation by the Kalashnikov group of the terms of the competition, the second stage of which was exposed to a new design of the machine together with the improved initial one (which the rest of the participants were forced to observe). Deikin did everything in his power to ensure that the Kalashnikov group was not removed from the competition at that moment. In his memoirs, Malimon also “forgot” not only about the complete re-arrangement of the AK-46, but also about the presence of two stages of the competition from 1946-48.

    Between the first (completed in 1947) and the second (completed in 1948) stages of the competition, the original AK-46 No. 2 model, made according to the “fracture” scheme (receiver + USM box with a butt), was redesigned by Zaitsev into a monolithic receiver design closed on top by a lid.

    As a result, the AK-47 consisted of:
    - Monolithic receiver Zaitsev (instead of the "fracture" Kalashnikov);
    - bolt group Garanda;
    - a gas piston combined with a gate frame of the type Stg-44:
    - trigger mechanism from ZH-29 (the original trigger system developed by Kalashnikov was removed due to the large number of misfires).

    The question is simple - and where is the contribution to Sergeant Kalashnikov’s AK-47? laughing

    One of his samples (the so-called 1st model AK or AK-46 No. 1) had a one-piece receiver opened from above, from where the mobile automation system was assembled during the assembly of weapons. As a result of factory tests, it was found that the weapons automation works very reliably - only 25% of delays were received for 0,24 thousand shots.
    Simultaneously with the model of the assault rifle No. 1, the group of MT Kalashnikov developed and manufactured the second example of the assault rifle, the case parts of which were made by stamping (the so-called 2nd sample of AK or AK-46 No. 2). AK-46 No. 2 was built according to the "turning point" scheme, where for disassembling weapons it was necessary to disconnect the launch box with the butt from the receiver with the barrel. The AK-46 No. 3 assault rifle differed from the AK-46 No. 2 assault rifle by the presence of a folding metal butt.
    Some super experts do not even know about the number of options for the AK-46, and about the device ...

    Why all the time A. Zaitsev recorded in the "experienced designer"? He graduated from college in 1943 and went to the front. He started working at the plant in April 46th and after only four months he already started working with Kalashnikov. What can be the experience in four months?
