TsNIITOCHMASH began development of a new collimator sight

The Central Scientific Research Institute of Precision Engineering (part of Rostec) has begun the development of a new collimator sight for small arms weapons, which is not inferior in its characteristics to the best foreign models. The press service of Rostec reports.


According to the report, a new domestic collimator sight is being developed for submachine guns, assault rifles, carbines and machine guns. In the future, the Russian development should replace the collimator sights of foreign production, mainly used by various power structures of Russia. Of the Russian security forces, only the 1P-87 sight, developed as part of the creation of the Ratnik equipment, is in service.

According to the head of the department for the development of small arms TsNIITOCHMASH Vadim Malinnikov, whose words are quoted by "RIA News", the use of red dot sights expands the tactical capabilities of small arms and increases their combat effectiveness.

Malinnikov stressed that the sight being developed by Russian specialists will have an advantage over foreign models. He called the main differences between the new collimator a monolithic body without additional adapters and screws, a quick-release mechanism, the use of two power sources, a sealed design and a continuous operation of about 30 thousand hours.

In 2019, TsNIITOCHMASH announced the beginning of the development of a series of new high-tech sights for small arms with caliber up to 9 mm inclusive. The series includes thermal, collimator and other types of sights. The development is carried out by order of the Ministry of Defense.

    I think very few people would argue with this fact. Proven over the years.

        The task is not easy ... when there are global brands, the same Aimpoint is Swedish. Collimators are definitely not an easy product; for an ordinary shooter it increases the hit rate by 30%. The device must be level. Good luck to the research institute tochmash.

          At a certain level, the arrow is to fall no problem even without a sight, but to hit fast with a collimator it is much easier and more convenient, since there is no need to bring the rear sight with the front sight.

    I would like it better, but oh and ah, DOING ON THE LEVEL, it's already good.

      Especially when TSNIITOCHMASH gets down to business, then I think it will be done. Moreover, there is nothing "super cosmic" in this.

        Oh, don't talk about super space, otherwise the associations are not good, as with all sorts of nano!
        Just do the right thing, do it well!

    No dates are specified. Many begin, and silence. 30 thousand hours - what is this battery?

    continuous operation of about 30 thousand hours.
    A year and a half without recharging?

      Yes. In the old days I had Aimpoint comp m-4, I never turned it off at all, 9000 hours of operation on one AA battery, EMNIP.

            Modern collimator and holographic systems have already crossed the threshold of 50 hours of continuous operation. And for some models, manufacturers even MILLION hours (= 000 years) declare (at the minimum set brightness). Nice progress jumped. Here is one of them. Sightmark Wolverine 114x1 FSR Red Dot Sight SM28.

                American firm, made, however, in China. It is hard to believe, because more eminent producers still "cut sturgeon" in the region of 50 hours.

    A friend wrote to me here that we have a company that produces excellent scopes. I don’t remember what kind of company it was, to climb to look for laziness.

      This company is called Schwabe. Quite a wide range. There is still some kind of manufacturer, but Schwabe is the leader among domestic manufacturers.

    This sighting complex, 1p87, 1p90 (magnifier), and the helmet-assisted night light appeared 2.5 years ago. What can I say: the night light is not bad, lighter than 1pn93-2, again there is a helmet-mounted "horn", in many cases it is convenient. There is an IR spotlight, but this is a very situational thing. It is monocular, which is both a plus and a minus. The 1p87 sight is not bad, it is stable, the brightness of the aiming mark is adjustable, at the minimum you can work with a night light. I don’t know how long the battery lasts, because I haven’t used it for a long time, but it seems like not very long, according to the guys' reviews. What about parallax compensation is also xs. Small "window" of the field of view. EOTech does not yet reach, to put it mildly. I would not use a magnifier - the quality of the optics is so-so, it does not tilt to the side, and therefore most of its functionality is lost. The collimator cannot be used with a night light on a helmet if it is installed.
    So, in a nutshell. I myself use Eotek + magnifier, and a new night light. Nevertheless, it is better than nothing for the army. I would like of course some kind of development.

        Well, they did not give us such brackets, which means there are only monolithic ones. The same story with the AK-12 completeness in the infantry version. However, there is no need to choose, because often the people who are responsible for the supply have no idea what the "consumer" needs here.

          I do not mean it. I mean that ZT 1p90 leans to the side.

            As I understand it, the magnifier of the colimator is on my one, only narrow, so that the view does not narrow, he decently adds weight, and often the question arises about its expediency, there seems to be a separate one in the photo, there are modules of a colimator with an enlarger right away ...

              By attaching all sorts of strips to the PPSh, all sorts of sights will not fit ...

              In my opinion, this single module adds a lot of weight, and if the magnifier is not needed, it is better to carry it in unloading or in a backpack in general, you can put it on a quick-release bar, only then it will be much higher and can put it on one level to the collimator and the bar will no longer work quick-detachable on a protruding clamp is attached if the clamp is touched, all this stuff can fall off, just as the enlarger, thrown to the side, protrudes strongly and can interfere or even touch, get confused, break ...

        Here is such a product from TSNIITOCHMASH will be.
        Weighing a kilogram and a half, and only one person of a certain color can look with him in one place.

    The main thing is that they did not give over to Belarus. They will not be stable in the foreseeable future.

    my point of view, in motion the colimator sight rests, in static the optics are better.
    ps I spoke now only about decent distances, but in close combat this is not necessary

    The weapon should lead to a normal battle any citizen of the Russian Federation. This is an axiom.
    The development of optics, its development and implementation is very good.
    But, any citizen of the Russian Federation, "if something happens," must quickly begin to use weapons and confidently hit targets at the required distances.
    If equally good optics with the same parameters, aimed at, will stand on every machine gun located in the State Guard, then I do not mind at all.
    If not - then it goes through the forest - give me a mechanical sighting device.
    Special services are provided with optics as needed.
    For combined arms combat, scopes are desirable, but not essential. At the same time, going to the optics is preferable to going to the collimators.
    The report is finished.

    If the new development of TsNIITOCHMASH Mashinostroeniya (part of Rostec)
    it will turn out to replace plastic in lenses on optics in a collimator sight with high-quality glass coated optical lenses - this really will not be inferior in its characteristics to the best foreign samples. Good luck, everything will work out!
