Rostec plans to return on sale the domestic hunting smooth-bore revolving gun MTs-255, developed at the Central Design Research Bureau of the Sports and Hunting weapons... This was reported by the press service of the state corporation.
As noted, the MTs-255 gun was produced in Tula in the early 2000s in small quantities, but due to the high cost it was discontinued. The issue of resuming the production of this gun and going on sale is currently being considered.
The MTs-255 revolving gun, which has no analogues on the market, was mass-produced by the enterprise and gained great popularity among hunters. It is planned to resume production of this product.
