A-545 "Kord". About new versions of "Kovrov" machines

27

In July, the domestic media reported that the process of mass production of the A-545 assault rifle (index 6P67) had begun at the Degtyarev plant in Kovrov. From the nomenclature designation it is clear that this is a 5,45 mm caliber machine gun. Initially this weapon was developed as an integral part of the equipment of the Russian serviceman "Ratnik" and competed with the AK-12.


The Degtyarev plant presented the A-545 and other versions of its weapons at the stand of the international forum "Army-2020".

In the video on the Lazarev Tactical channel, where the plant's stand is being examined at the exhibition, a very cautious statement was made:

The product, as I think, will enter service in the near future.

Further, the participant of the exhibition, Vladimir Lezov, says that both the A-545 Kord machine gun and the A-762 Kord machine gun have already been adopted. He also talks about the tests that the "Kovrov" submachine guns underwent before being put into service: dragging along the sand, throwing them onto a concrete base from a height of XNUMX meters, etc.

The video tells about the new version of the AEK-971, the creation of which took into account the comments of the shooters who practiced during the tests.

    Interestingly, when developing new models of small arms, is it known in advance what specific tests it must withstand?
    Is there any "GOST"?
    Where to read about it?

      They are given a technical task, GOST has nothing to do with it.

      The Russian army is like a spoiled refrigerator in which the best products turn sour. How long does it take for such excellent samples to go to the army or to the special forces, fifty years, a hundred years? Everyone counts, everyone benefits, everyone prays to the golden calf.
      You cannot serve both God and mammon.

      There is a test program approved by the customer.
      Completed it, signed by the same customer - that's all.
      But in reality, everything is not so simple ..

      And watch the movie more closely?
      At 2min 50 seconds, he says that he does not have a film with shooting from this particular machine (he hopes that it will be temporarily), but he will show what balanced automation is on the previous model.

    There is a GOST for test behavior ... for small arms. In the Russian Federation, it is the toughest.

      I know there is GOST for safety.
      But when competitions are held, from what height to throw, how much and on what sand to drag, and so on, is there a standard or for each competition they make up their own conditions.
      There is a big nuance, since when weapons are being developed, they must also be guided by these requirements.

      the Savior said so, but it is impossible because serving mammon means not understanding and not achieving.

    The production, price and operating characteristics (1 year of military service is insufficient) of this product does not allow mass production for the entire army in the current perspective. town of Kovrov.

      And Th 1 year of military service is immediately to blame. Or can a conscript not be trusted with an accurate weapon? Let him be shot into the white light.

    Funny.
    Weapons are made in huge numbers. One ruble of the difference between the models is millions of rubles in total.
    And Kovrov automatic machines are more expensive than Izhevsk ones not by a ruble, but several times.
    Or maybe you are an honorary sponsor and are ready to pay the difference out of your personal savings?
    Chot strongly doubt.

    For example, when the mosinka was adopted in the century before last, there were different versions of the clip for cartridges, why do you think it went like this. Because it is a few grams (!!!) lighter. As a result, many, many tons of expensive steel were saved.

    Everything looks convincing by ear and on video, but I would like to know how long this balanced firing mechanism will withstand shots without cleaning, and will it also work after swimming in the mud? Firstly, its structure and configuration creates certain difficulties in cleaning. I specially paused the video to examine the mechanism, having examined it, doubts arose that when fired, the frame goes as it should be backward, and the balancer - forward, and the question immediately arises if carbon deposits form inside, between the walls of the balancer and the frame, or if dirt gets in, or even rust will appear - will "it" work without delay? The accompanying factors listed by me cannot interfere with the shooting of the Kalashnikov assault rifle. sad

    Kovrov is an expensive factory. Private enterprise. ZID with fables about the sovereign's business cannot be understood. It is clear that it is difficult for him to compete with Izhevsk. He is small, at all. And the machines are expensive. They will release them for special forces and intelligence - they will use ammunition sparingly, in the hands of trained fighters.

      ammunition will be economically spent in the hands of trained fighters.

      Why do trained fighters need weapons, they will take it away from the enemy along with the cartridges and will not save, why save the enemy's cartridges.

        Is that humor? When in a raid, each cartridge in the ammo rack - how ... hard, in short. An assault rifle with balanced automatics allows you to shoot closely from unstable positions. In a short clash, such a machine gun will give a good shooter an advantage ...

    Is it not suitable for shooting with the stock folded? Otherwise, judging by the video, the shoulder rest overlaps the sights completely.

    Great of course
    It looks heavy, massive.
    You can pierce the enemy with the butt plate)
    The balancer causes some concern - if only sand does not get into its cylinder
