Gun Yarygin

The gun of Yarygin is weaponwhich causes a lot of controversy recently, many mark it as an excellent substitute for a Makarov pistol, even more people speak of it as a weapon extremely unreliable and unsuitable to be in service with the army and police. One could say that how many people have so many opinions, and a large number of negative reviews are based not on the personal experience of using these weapons, but on the fact that someone said somewhere, read it somewhere, but given that the criticism was domestic weapons came into vogue, everyone considers it his duty to comment on PJ, although many have seen the gun only in the picture and even weakly present the scheme of its automation work, let alone draw objective conclusions. Let's try to find the truth, well, and at the same time find out what is wrong with this weapon, and why it causes a flow of negative emotions in most people.

Need to start with stories making this weapon. In 1990, the Ministry of Defense announced a competition to create a new pistol, which would replace the Makarov pistol in service. Despite all its simplicity and reliability, the PM uses not the most effective ammunition by modern standards 9х18, which do not meet modern requirements, which was the reason for the creation of a new weapon. Given the not the simplest time, this contest stretched over 10 years. So, the Yarygin pistol itself was introduced in 1993, and became the winner only in 2000. Since 2003, this gun and the new ammunition 9x19, differing in their characteristics from the Western model for the better, were adopted by the army. And at the end of 2008 and the Interior Ministry expressed a desire to get a new weapon. However, given how many different models of pistols are being positioned as a replacement for the PM, it is impossible to say anything concrete. Mass production of PU for the army was established only in the 2011 year, which can be considered as confirmation of the existence of problems with weapons that had to be fixed. In addition to the gun Yarygin for the army and the Interior Ministry, which was named in accordance with the ongoing competition "Rook", there are also several other options for these weapons. Thus, an export version of the Viking pistol with the designation MP-446 is produced, there is a sports pistol with the same name, but already referred to as the MP-446C, it differs in its weakened design, which allows the use of only standard 9x19 cartridges. Well, it’s better to keep silent about the traumatic version and the pneumatic one.

The appearance of the pistol Yarygin not quite normal. First of all, the half-hidden trigger, which is almost completely hidden in the casing-shutter, catches the eye. This was done so that in the process of removing the weapon he did not have something to cling to the equipment or clothing of the shooter, however, this decision is quite controversial, since it makes it difficult to pre-pull the trigger if the hands are protected with thick gloves, and the back of the weapon is for this looks quite unusual. On the other hand, provided that a double-action firing mechanism is installed in the weapon, the trigger can not be touched at all during the operation of the weapon. The remaining controls are fairly familiar and are represented by a standard set. So, the fuse switch is duplicated on the right and left sides, only the slide delay lever is located on the right, the magazine eject key can be installed both on the left and right sides of the weapon, this is done by the shooter himself. Standard sights do not have the ability to adjust, however, the rear sight is mounted on the cover-bolt on the dovetail-type seat, which makes it possible to replace it with a more convenient aiming device. The safety bracket of the pistol is rather large; it allows fire even if the shooter’s hands are protected by thick gloves; the front has a deflection for the index finger of the second holding hand while holding the weapon with two hands. It feeds a pistol from a detachable magazine with a capacity of 17 cartridges. You can also find more capacious stores with a capacity of 18 cartridges, they belong to weapons manufactured before the 2004 year. The gun can be either with a steel or with a plastic frame, and if previously there was a strict separation and “Rook” had only a frame of steel, now it can already be found in a lightweight version.

The principle of operation of the automatic pistol is built according to the scheme with a short stroke of the barrel. The barrel is locked by moving the breech breech in a vertical plane, which is realized through the interaction of the figure cut in the tide under the barrel and the pin passing through it. When moving in the vertical plane of the barrel, the protrusion above the cartridge chamber enters and leaves the clutch with the window for ejection of spent cartridges, which allows for reliable locking of the barrel bore. It is noteworthy that many note the complete similarity of the automation system with the Glock pistol, forgetting that very, very many samples of pistols use the same system of locking the barrel bore. Works automatic gun as follows. Immediately before the shot, the bore of the weapon is closed, that is, the barrel and casing-bolt are in engagement with a projection above the chamber and a window for ejecting the spent cartridges. When fired, the powder gases press not only on the bullet, forcing it to move along the barrel, but also on the bottom of the liner, but given that the pressure is held for a fraction of a second by force, it is impossible to call it, but a short-term pulse is quite possible. This pulse sleeve transmits casing-bolt, which begins to move back, as well as the barrel of the weapon is engaged with him, then he begins to move. In the process of movement of the barrel and casing-bolt, the shaped cut under the breech begins to interact with the pin, and since the cut is made slightly obliquely, this interaction causes the breech bore to descend downwards, which removes the overhang from the clutch from the window to release the shot sleeves Thus, the shutter casing and the barrel are separated, the barrel is braked against the weapon frame, and the shutter casing continues to move backward, removing the cartridge case and cocking the pistol trigger. Having reached its extreme rear position, the shutter-casing stops and under the influence of the return spring begins to move forward, removing the new cartridge from the magazine and inserting it into the chamber. After the shutter casing rests against the breech breech, it begins to push it forward, which leads to the interaction of the figure cutout in the tide under the cartridge chamber and, as a result, raising the breech breech and its engagement with the window for ejection of spent cartridges, i.e. locking the barrel After that, the gun is again ready for the next shot.

Gun YaryginAs you can see, in theory, everything is quite simple, and the scheme itself has long been worked out on many weapon models, so, in principle, there was nowhere to "mess up", but you need to understand that even with such a simple scheme of work, the weapon can be raw, and manifested in quite unpleasant moments until recently. First of all, it should be noted that there are quite frequent cases when the cartridge case did not leave the pistol, but it was tangled in the window to eject the cartridge case, stopping the shutter-casing. This trouble is not the biggest and easily enough disposable, but outside the shooting range such delays are unacceptable, as they can cost the life of the shooter. The main reason that the cartridge case was skewed could be called the low quality of the weapon, as well as not the highest quality of the ammunition themselves. At the moment, this problem has been eliminated, at least in the weapon itself, but the "sediment remained." The second problem was that the plastic frame of the weapon often did not withstand a large shot and burst. There is already a reason not in quality, but in the fact that previously only export and sports versions of weapons had a plastic frame, and the latter were weakened so that they could not use more powerful 9x19 cartridges, but only standard ones. Apparently, they have gone overboard with the weakening, and it is difficult to say how things are now with this, since this problem has “turned away” people from the national pistol for a long time. In my opinion, it was a very big mistake to launch a weapon to the masses before it was fully developed, as now the Yarygin pistol is very different in reliability compared to the first weapon variants, and this is confirmed by the reviews of those who just now encountered this weapons. Those who have tried the pistol from earlier releases have already added their opinion about the pistol of the POI as poor-quality and unreliable weapons, and even new ones, which are already much better in quality, cannot be overrun by their samples.

Of course, that without a negative moment in this gun has not done. You can still observe delays when shooting, if you use low-quality standard 9x19 cartridges, but with enhanced domestic weapons, they work without problems. Actually, you can even say that it was designed for more powerful ammunition weapons, and 9x19 with its standard characteristics is not the best option for Grach pistols. To everything else, you can add a sufficiently large width of the pistol, not the most successful standard sights, a long trigger stroke, and so on, that is, those things that you just need to get used to. Among the positive features of the weapon, first of all, it is necessary to note a full-fledged ammunition, which, however, is already beginning to get rid of its own, but here the domestic version of the 9x19 has a slight advantage over Western patron models adopted by the armies of other countries. the cartridge will be distributed in our army.

    Why take a pistol for "dying ammunition" because the domestic version of 9x19 has only "small advantages"? With the obvious capriciousness of the system, it is not necessary to talk about multi-caliber - with difficulty they brought it to acceptable reliability under 7H21. Will a replacement be needed again in ten years?

        that's for sure! otherwise my unit received 60 Yarygin this year, of which control shooting with regular armor-piercing 7n21, only 14 pistols passed! the rest went back to the factory with troubleshooting!

        Disadvantages from Wikipedia:

        The all-metal construction of the ПЯ provides mechanical strength, reliability and durability of the weapon, however, it reduces the manufacturability of production and increases the mass of the gun. It is not clear why the figured cutout under the barrel is made in the form of a hole and should be made by drilling.
        By the quality of manufacture and finish, the Yarygin pistols of the first years of production are somewhat inferior to modern foreign pistols - in particular, traces of machining with a metal cutting tool can be seen on the surface of the parts, in some cases the surface of the moving parts requires polishing, and the mechanism requires debugging. The warranty shot of those pistols is only 4 thousand shots with modern requirements of 40 thousand shots.
        There is no safe trigger release, which is available in most modern designs.
        The trigger stroke is smooth, but a bit too big.
        The shutter-casing of the ПЯ is quite high and massive, the return spring occupies the entire underbarrel space, which makes the front barrel part cumbersome in addition to the large overall width.
        The ballistics of commercial 9 × 19 mm Parabellum cartridges, foreign-made 9 × 19 mm NATO cartridges and domestic 9 × 19 mm 7N21 cartridges are different; when changing ammunition, the gun must be shot again.
        When firing with commercial 9 × 19 mm Parabellum cartridges, some manufacturers may experience delays in firing.
        In the sports version of the MP-446C Viking pistol, to exclude the possibility of firing live ammunition with increased power, the strength of a number of parts was reduced, as a result, the pistol's service life was reduced. So, the extractor’s tooth breaks after 500-3 shots, the trigger pulls through ~ 000 shots, the barrel needs to be replaced after ~ 7 shots, the plastic frame withstands about 000-10 thousand shots (usually breaks in the area of ​​the rod hole shutter lag). At the usual frequency of sports shooting, the MP-000C's resource rarely exceeds a year of service. [10]
        When changing the store, some MP-446C pistols were able to produce an involuntary shot, which makes them unsafe to use. This is due to both poor fitting of the parts and the unsuccessful location of the sear, the lower part of which is open and is on the same level with the inner surface of the store’s shaft. When you insert the store at a certain angle relative to the longitudinal axis of the mine, the sear is touched. Pistols MP-446 "Viking" do not have such a drawback.
        The holes for determining the number of cartridges in the store are located on the right, which causes difficulties when using them in people shooting with the right hand.
        The magazine latch is not protected against accidental operation.

        Is it a bit much?

        It so happened that we have to deal with new (from the factory) PYa and PM. I would venture to express my purely subjective opinion. Ich is very well conceived, but not well embodied. Although the difference between the trunks released in 2010 and 2011 is visible to the naked eye. Luger cartridges with a wolf on a pack are not the most suitable ammunition, although the barrels of 2011 were born. chewed them calmly, but the older brothers sometimes choked. 7N21 were too tough for everyone. To the PM account. If I am offered to choose a barrel born in 1968. (I had this in the army) and the current one (last receipts in 2008) I will choose the old one. And for the quality of material and workmanship. I won't say anything about GSH-18, I haven't seen it in hardware. Although at the training camp in Volgograd the phrase was pronounced: "It would be better if they (Gryazev and Shipunov) continued to make aircraft guns"

          gsh in iron is simply handsome! As for pm, I agree with you myself for 63 years, and still normally keeps accuracy (though I try not to score, I mean)! but the first five of 2008 were still normal, they ate all kinds of cartridges! I know the man who took the European Championship with him, though he did it with a file anyway (the rear sight and front sight were large for target shooting and the speed of the trigger was shortened)! but the last batch is something (horror)! the truth Vikings' writers are chrome-plating shop to increase stiffness like helps less distortions! and about gsh there the barrel is rolled mainly due to the fact that it is difficult to disassemble it and there are no disassembling instructions in the kit! So you have to clean it while sitting on the Internet! and so a great hole punch!

    I use this pistol not every day or even a week, but quite regularly. Of course, the PY is not the pinnacle of the art of weapons, but it is quite a worthy replacement for the PM (at the same time, I personally think the PM is an excellent pistol). The results of shooting from the PY are consistently higher than when shooting from the PM with the same arrows. In my opinion, enlarged sights are very convenient. PYa allows you to comfortably fire with two hands during high-speed shooting. It is convenient to use with both right and left hands and with gloves as well. Well, this is what is on the surface, I will not delve into the nuances; whoever uses it knows who will never take it in their hands to anything. What not to like: indeed, when shooting 300-500 standard 7N21 cartridges, a so-called "chimney" appears when the sleeve is not thrown out and is compressed by the shutter, however, when, in preparation for the competition, they began to use not armor-piercing 7N21 and Barnaul cartridges, nothing of the kind was observed, and with much more on the shot. Immediately striking is the miserable mechanical processing. But this is not a problem with the pistol as such, but a problem with the factory with its prehistoric equipment and unscrupulous staff. The store is loaded up in a chore, the cartridges are hard to enter, although in the heat of the competition the head of the team, equipping the shooter, managed to score 19 cartridges there. As for the shortcomings from Wikipedia, it is clear that half of them do not refer to the pistol itself, but to the technology of its production. Personally, I don't care how a curly cutout is made by drilling or in some other way. Well, the "drawback" is that when changing the ammunition from ours to NATO, the ballistics changes at all ridiculous, this is not a drawback, this is life, if you think so, then all the sniper rifles of the world must also be thrown into the trash, because for them the range of ammunition is many times higher and each has its own ballistics.

    Such an ugly gun cannot be good by definition.
    The design was created according to the principle - "with the world on a thread - naked shirt". Something from Beretta, something from Browning.
    After Makarov, he only causes longing.
    Regarding the accuracy of Yarygin - at the competitions when shooting from Makarov I knocked out 91 out of 100 (25m) on a round target. In training, of course, there were higher results. In this case, holding the barrel with only one hand and no overlays on the handle.
    I would send the rest of the PM to the private sector, and send something like Swift to the army. True, our state is trying to send its citizens to die in a cheaper war.
    And the AK-12 is also that monster. In my opinion, an unsuccessful alteration of the AK-74.
    I personally support the Swiss approach to AK design - SIG 550/551/552.

I have close relatives and friends working in this system. I know a lot from first hand. I hear little good. My opera friend died at the hands of another Interior Ministry officer while detaining the latter. He threw a grenade when they tried to extract him from the household, where he barricaded himself. That was 6-7 years ago. This also says that our Ministry of Internal Affairs is in pain and is far from recovering. But there are decent people there. There are a significant number of them and they are trying to fulfill their duty in good faith. Unfortunately, it is customary to talk about the police in the media when something is wrong. But little is said about heroes and simply honest employees. This is the trouble.

    It is noteworthy that many note the complete similarity of the automation system with the Glock pistol, So where is the similarity, not taking into account the principle itself? In PYa, the tide "rings" the pin, in Glock everything is different, his tide has a cutout and the breech part of the barrel, as it were, falls down and sits on the pin. And in general, the vast majority of pistols operate on the principle of locking with a short barrel stroke, it is extremely difficult to come up with something new here

    Not so much bad PY as raw. The development and production of small arms is a complex thing. Lope sweats came down from Izhevsk before PM debugged, Mama Do not Cry! The debugging is called and the technologist acts on par with the designer.
    But the history of the PM remained in the "totalitarian" past. Now, in the age of capitalism, production, or rather the owners of production, is only interested in profit. So no one will bring it - not profitable, sir.
    Yes Yes. I agree. Let's buy a license for a used bagpipe. But so again you have to pore over the fine-tuning. Do they need it? Then come on ready to fly ...
    Or maybe we'd better buy a "ready-made" police over the hill?

For several thousand shots, I personally did not have a single problem, for comparison, the PM had 3 misfires. Cartridge 7N21 is not very bad.

    Opinion of the layman. In the second photo in the article, in my opinion, a very low-quality matte finish, which has worn off on all protruding parts. One gets the impression that for domestic consumption, as it was in the era of underdeveloped socialism, it is being done "cheaper" and worse. They say their own and such will devour. Hence, careless and low-quality manufacturing with all the ensuing consequences. The opinion of weapon consumers means little, because the decision is made by very high-seated comrades, who see weapons only in the form of donations.

    For the police, a pistol is needed not with lethal force, but with a stopping effect. So that you can use traumatic and shell-free bullets.
    Army and police weapons should be different. The police must neutralize the criminal and detain, and not kill their own citizens. The army must accordingly destroy the enemy (we do not need prisoners)

      So he is in the PPS and does not go! By the way, the 9n19 luger cartridge has a greater stopping effect than 9n18pm! it does not have a core like in pm and it is in service with most of the police units in the world!

    Enough dirt! Great gun!

    It's not about mud. The car is good. The master's hands are growing out of the wrong place. And he is not to blame if the "interests of the firm" press on him.

    as it was in the era of underdeveloped socialism, it is being done "cheaper" and worse

    In the days of socialism, for such "overlays" in the production of weapons, many would have felled forests in the taiga. Best case scenario.

    Colonel, forget about socialism! Together with his charms and shortcomings, the best shots that made excellent technique were left.

    I don’t put a minus, I’m not accustomed.

    PM has already outlived its own - both the pistol itself and the shot - I would like to get my hand under a good barrel for a replacement - but there are no options yet - the specialists have a handicap - they are ELITE - but we have what - BUT WANT

    Can return the topic to the gun? Let's still discuss the topic Fort15-Jericho 941-CZ75-Browning (give credit to Cyril).
    But whatever you may say, but with pistols we are not doing very well (under "we" I mean the former USSR)

    He held and twisted it in the Viking version. New from the box. I didn’t shoot, but somehow the workmanship resembles a 1942 Mosin rifle. He even snaps like that .... not so ... it’s not clear what kind of descent .. In general, he smoked a smoke .... And bought ..... Beretta M92 FS ... TT of 1954 is made better than the new Viking. In general, I did not like the Viking, nor the convenience in it, nor the workmanship, nor the reliability ...

    The gun must be reliable. First of all, it is reliable. Suppose you can’t call Colt 1911 very accurate with not the most outstanding indicators .... But I don’t know if I can make semi-finished products with such a proven locking scheme.

    georg737577, you're right M1911 a very good gun, albeit an old one. but he is still popular in the army and among the civilians. and about PY it’s a bad gun and as soon as it has passed the contest. gsh-18 also said not the best gun (a friend from the security forces told me)

    Today he shot at the Russian Democratic Party from 3 pistols - Chisette, Glock and Viking. Viking is the coolest trunk! Heavy, accurate with good returns. Glock is lighter and more oblique. Cisetta did not remember.
    Exclusively from my impressions.

    Many times I went to exhibitions and meetings in TsNIITOCHMASH. There you can shoot plenty. From time to time in 7 years, the gun got better. Now this is a good example of an army pistol under a reinforced cartridge. The problem (and not small) in the quality of the cartridges themselves is a very unstable quality. Especially in the first installments. In general, the problem is not so much in the trunk as in the frames. And this applies not only to PY.

    I have long wanted to read an article about Yarygin. I liked it. The biggest advantage of the Rook is its 18 rounds magazine. Cool!
