Dispose or store old small arms in army warehouses?

On the instructions of the Ministry of Defense in Russia, the disposal of small weapons. In the main defense department of the country they say that today the Russian armories are literally overflowing with machine guns, sniper rifles and pistols that were made even more than 30 years ago. According to some data, at the beginning of 2012, the number of small arms in the military arsenals was about 16 million barrels, of which about 35-40% developed their resource. By the end of 2015, the office of Anatoly Serdyukov is going to dispose of about 4-million weapons.

This news was ambiguously perceived in Russia. Some people are convinced that the preservation and increase of the number of small arms in the country is a matter of national security, and therefore no utilization mechanisms with respect to the military arsenal are simply relevant. Others say that the disposal of old models of small arms, which had developed its resource a decade ago, was long overdue.

There is a rather remarkable opinion of experts, which boils down to the fact that the reduction in the number of military small arms by 4 million is too small a figure. It is necessary to make a more large-scale reduction, leaving no more than 3-4 million units in the reserve arsenal.

All parties have their reasons. Representatives of the first party are confident that the Ministry of Defense is involved in a dubious project that may affect the ability of the army to solve a whole range of tasks. The arguments in this case look approximately as follows: small arms were created for the benefit of the Fatherland, and therefore its mass utilization is a blow to the security of the Russian army, which may be faced with the need to participate in a large-scale conflict.

The newspaper "Moskovsky Komsomolets" directly says that the large-scale utilization of small arms, started by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is not similar to an episode more than 100-year ago, when Minister of War Sukhomlinov signed an order in which he authorized the disposal of thousands of rifles of Berdan system No. XXNX . Adjutant General Sukhomlinov in 400 year, said that this weapon only clutters up warehouses, and therefore it must either be sold or disposed of. However, after the outbreak of the First World War, problems with the armament of the Russian army appeared, which indicated the “flaw” of V.А. Sukhomlinov. Soon the head of the military ministry of imperial Russia was arrested and convicted of treason. Apparently, the "MK" makes it clear that the disposal of small arms of modern times can lead to the same consequences as the disposal after the order of V.А. Sukhomlinov in the second decade of the 2 century.

Supporters of plans for the disposal of small arms, announced by Anatoly Serdyukov, are not inclined to dramatize. In their opinion, it is simply incorrect to compare the situation of 1910 and 2012 for years, all the more so since we are talking about the disposal of outdated small arms. In the opinion of these people, if the industry works not to actually provide the army, but to pack only warehouses, and without replacing old weapons with new ones, then there is no need to modernize the army.

Both positions are worthy of respect. Indeed, the permanent storage of old weapons does not fit into the modernization plans. However, before something massively disposed of, it is necessary to analyze the manufacturing industry. If our enterprises are ready to fulfill all the points of the State Defense Order in terms of creating ultramodern small arms capable of becoming competitive, including in the world market, then the disposal of old weapons samples does not look frightening. But it often happens that we first carry out a total destruction, and then begin conversations and reflections on the fact that the idea was not reasonable and, therefore, began to be realized in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Well, whoever will be accused of treason there, and whether such a person will be found in the event of unpleasant events, this is already a big question ...

In this regard, so that no double judgments about the announced occasion should arise, the Ministry of Defense must guarantee that all the measures carried out do not go beyond the modernization framework and do not affect the country's defense capability. And in this case there is one guarantee - long-term contracts for the production of new high-precision, effective and reliable weapons, which must certainly be implemented.

By the way, at a time when 16 millions of trunks are actually lying without any use in military stores, in modern schools, life safety classes (BZ) in general have forbidden to conduct lessons on the study of weapons ... And if only recently a graduate of the school could bring the fact that the lessons of basic military training revealed to him the basics of dealing with small arms, today many senior students of the Kalashnikov machine gunner have seen, perhaps, depicted in numerous computer games ...

    Store the old ones until the new ones show the qualities that are present in the old ones. While the AK-12 does not establish itself as an AK-47, there can be no question of any replacement.

      utilization utilization discord.
      if trunks go to remelting just because they were in warehouses for 30 years in factory lubrication, this is a crime.
      if the used trunks are sold in bantustan and to the rescue order new weapons from their manufacturers is welcome.
      although it seems to me there will be an option s - they will sell everything they want and they will take the revenue.

        The machines are made with a folding butt.
        The design uses modern materials. Butt, shop, forend, barrel and pistol grip are made of plastic and have high impact resistance and resistance to external influences. The use of protective coatings provides high corrosion resistance of metal parts.
        On the machines there is a side bar for installing optical and night sights.
        The AK101 provides seats for attaching a 40-mm grenade launcher or bayonet-knife.
        The muzzle brake provides a high accuracy of automatic firing by reducing the withdrawal of the machine from the aiming point and lower recoil energy when firing.
        The quality control system available at the enterprise, including comprehensive testing, ensures high quality of AK101,102,103,104.

            The point is that they are needed primarily for special forces, the advantages are obvious - primarily in the accuracy of firing in bursts .... do not dispose of old samples .... if the weapons were stored properly they will always come in handy in case of mobilization of reservists .... just under the guise of recycling, they can really write off everything that may be lacking in army warehouses ... hi

            And what is the meaning of them

            replacing the butt - lightening the weapon and making it more comfortable for individual adjustment to the fighter, as well as the possibility of using a free swivel on the butt so that it is easy to change left-handed grip to right-handed (in the video the fighter does this without a belt) with a three-point belt, which is important in tactical terms;
            forend replacement - installation option:
            - tactical handle - run around, shooting from time to time without a handle and with it a couple of hours, you will understand the difference;
            - optical, collimator sight - here I think everything is clear;
            - a laser control unit, a tactical flashlight, or a new gimbal system - I also think there are no questions.

    What is the point of disposing of it ... it's all weapons for existing ammunition. Our bureaucrats from the Moscow Region do not remember the story ... there aren’t many weapons. I have to inventory the warehouses, maybe some part with wear in the furnace. So they don’t want to put things in order in the storage system, this is a completely different issue for counterintelligence and military prosecutors.

      A large number of weapons that have been stored in the district warehouses have long been of the 5th category and are no longer suitable for combat use. I saw PMs and AKs in which the bolts do not twitch from rust and corrosion. There are also such rarities as machine guns "Maxim", "SGM" and revolvers "Nagant".

    Damn, here are the dunce, well, what is 16 million trunks in warehouses? And if the war and general mobilization throughout the country, where at least 50 ... 60 million people can hold weapons in their hands? How to arm the people? Again, how in Stalingrad - one rifle for 5 people? It’s good that there’s someone in their arms who has hunting weapons. But this will not save much. And if the Chinese trample like cockroaches? One hundred pounds of NATO will support them (especially the Baltic states with the Turks). Do we have an army of 50 million people to organize a real defense in depth of the whole country? It is clear, dear Mr. Minister, that you immediately rush to surrender and then over the hill closer to a satisfying and calm life.

    You need to keep your good! No wonder folk wisdom says - put away - take a closer look. And you need to keep wisely - to distribute by city. So that in case of mobilization and gathering of a combat-ready population, these weapons could immediately arm the whole country in a very short time.

    So 16 million for a country like ours is very little. There is still need to store and stock up, not dispose of. And we have enough warehouses, just how many of them are abandoned, including in cities. It's just that the Ministry of Defense has no time for the country's defense. In their eyes, there are now some zeros from the trillions of rubles allocated for this very defense. We must somehow "master" them.

    If you look at these experts, in the end people’s money and not small ones were spent on the production of weapons, and secondly, small arms aged 20-30 years old with ammunition can’t be old, in Afghanistan, the Amers use PCA and it’s pretty good about them respond. And to destroy simply, to produce in the current conditions is much more difficult.

              The advantages of the PPSh in short - a light and at the same time powerful cartridge, small ricochet of a pistol bullet, an increased rate of fire, a large-capacity magazine, cartridges for the Soviet PPSh are suitable for both 7.62x25 TT (.30 Tokarev) with a 0.988 "long sleeve, and 0.30 Mauser with a long sleeve 0.990 ", the cartridge 7.62x25 TT cartridge is unified with the cartridge 0.30 Mauser cartridge, there is a buzz when cleaning the premises, look in the search - a photo of the PPSh in Iraq, where most of the photos are in the buildings or next to them drinks .

              pay attention to the tactical handles on the trunks, for greater ease of shooting.

                        Marine Corps Expeditionary Forces (MEU) are the smallest airborne tactical formation of the Marine Corps. They include about 2100 marines and sailors.
                        And since the Corps has always stood apart from all the rest of the US Armed Forces. Then they decided that they still need a gun with great stopping power. Hence it is the Colt 1911, with the cartridge 45 ACP.
                        After some modernization, he received the name

                as I understand it, in their long-term storage warehouses, to the amazement of the Americans, a rather large number of PCA was found, and since the Iraqi army is at the stage of formation and training, the requirements are appropriate, that is, require an Iraqi soldier to clean and lubricate M4 daily (and not Allah, if it turns out to be a Bushmaster) is necessary, but difficult.
                I think if you replace the bed and the butt, integrate the tactical handle you get interesting weight!
                This photo shows better what exactly the American did: shortened the butt, reduced the length, which is important in the premises, installed a tactical handle, a flashlight and a collimator for stability of the grip - everything for fighting inside the building - ricochets fewer times than M-ki, more cartridges yes

      It takes great doubt that only samples that have developed their resources will be disposed of. Our MO really wants to get rid of the weapons depots (it is not in vain that they explode so often!) And sell the land on which they stand, get money for disposal, etc.

      Disposal of weapons that have not depleted their resources is a crime. With the intensive shooting training, which I hope will take place in the army, the weapon will wear out very quickly. And during the war, and even more so, in Chechnya, a submachine gun was shot in the trash in two months. Where will we get the new one later? Izhmash, the only manufacturer of the AK assault rifle, is on its way, but TOZ has no production of assault rifles for a long time.

    Here, against Russia, it plays the accepted position of selling exclusively the latest weapons. I know firsthand about the interest of so many, especially African armies, Soviet small arms. Ukrainian and Belarusian warehouses are practically empty. There is especially great interest in AKMS, not remakes (there is such a practice to remake AKM into AKMS, in which the stock folds to the left side). The export price for AKM reaches $ 250-270 per unit. It is for the Soviet model. And his absence gives rise to all kinds of "crafts". It's a pity. The African market is still promising.

    They are trying to convince us of the benefits and expediency in the middle of winter to throw solid but morally obsolete boots and walk barefoot through slush, frost, waiting for new design decisions.
    This is not an explosion, but the complete destruction, even of the slightest of our ability to defend.
    And there are a lot of examples of this, starting with the purchase of weapons from a potential adversary, ending with the destruction of high-class, combat-ready military units, equipment and weapons. The clearest example of this is the nuclear submarine "Shark" which today, whatever they say, has no equal, but our boats were killed not in a mortal battle for the Motherland, but betrayed by corrupt high ranks.

    The barrels "killed" during use or due to improper storage must be disposed of, it makes no sense to overhaul them. Is that to make an exception for machine guns PK, NSVS, DShK.
    Normal trunks are worth keeping. Moreover, their disposal does not pay off.

    I remember communicating with one officer from the arsenal, he told how the drafts were disposed of. They simply broke it and sent it for re-melting. It would be far more prudent to sell collectors who have no historical value abroad, and to preserve award and personal (there were such) ones. But no, they disposed of it all and lost money.
    On the other hand, they sold the SCS consignment to the USA. Having earned a lot of money, we were able to hold out in the post-default period, paying wages to workers, when everyone in the Moscow Region was aground until the end of December.

    1. purchase of imported equipment from NATO countries, while depriving our defense industry of orders .. (by the way, which they can stupidly disconnect from the satellite at the right time, remember Hussein with his Mirages)
    2. Periodic explosions of weapons depots, as I doubt such coincidences that they themselves began to explode ..
    3. Disposal of weapons which for another 30 years will be at least relevant ..
    4 But what about corruption, so generally the people already have the impression that Moscow Region and corruption are 2 inextricable concepts ..

    For example, Syria can only hold on due to the large number of weapons in warehouses and the creation of people's militias from people who have lost their relatives .. They appreciate the Union’s military tradition and our weapons, which can’t be said about ourselves .. And our minister seems to be doing work on errors, on the topic of what needs to be done so that the Syrian (Libyan) scenario rolls in Russia ..

    To dispose of Soviet-made AK, for me, this is how to dispose of gold. The same associations.
    Let them lie, do not ask. Serious kneading will begin, mobilization is the very weapon for non-professionals.

          I would like to add that, for example, the SVD rifles of the first series were made from steel of very high quality, increased manufacturing accuracy and impeccable processing of the barrel bore. The accuracy of the battle of the SVD, released in the 60s, was often higher than that of non-automatic, magazine rifles. Here, and the "old" weapon, the same can be said about the quality of the AK. It has already been said above that the stock does not hold a pocket, the disposal of small arms is a crime. As for a related topic - disposal of ammunition, sorry, but it would be better, bastards, they carried out more live firing.

            So here I am about the same. The Soviet quality of small arms production is excellent, and if the barrels are still not fired, "in oil," then it is generally a crime to dispose of such wealth ...

    can not be disposed of !!! in extreme cases, you can sell in America - there, against the backdrop of arming the US Department of Homeland Security, the population is also actively arming itself:

    I fully support.
    According to the experience of ammunition disposal, I think it’s better not to touch it more lively, but about distributing it to the people, because in general, wars of a regional scale may begin, the West is not an example to us.

    Well, lie to yourself and let them be stored. The USSR entered the Second World War with huge stocks of weapons, but by 1942 there weren’t even enough rifles.
    Disposal, as always, will lead to the destruction of rare weapons, to the ability to write off stolen goods, to the ability to steal, to undermine the mob. of opportunities.
    Someone does not argue that if there is a war, it will not be like the Second World War. But the Chechen war showed that: the DShK, the Mosinka, the Shmayser (MR-40), the TT, and the PPSh did not lose their combat capabilities, and in some cases they showed themselves better than the most modern small arms.
    Therefore, I believe it is too early to write off and destroy "pensioners" for the sake of a controversial one-time benefit.
    Although what we are discussing here DOES NOT SOLVE ANYTHING, how Serdyukov decided so and will deeply crap him on the opinion of both ours and the current armed forces.
    "Loot" is everything. Over the past 50 years - this is the most incompetent mo and the most despised by all those associated with the Armed Forces! am

    While the army is nothing new, but if a person knows how to shoot, then he can shoot from anything. If now with the available weapons we begin normal small arms training with everyone who is armed with a machine gun as a personal weapon, will these stockpiles be enough? These reserves are enough if the fighters will shoot as we have taken 2-3 times for service, of which one 3 rounds before taking the Oath.

    30 years and re-melting? Did I miss anything? Are we moving on to Star Wars blasters? It would be interesting to ask the Minister of Defense, and how many times does Kalashnikov 2012 exceed the 1980 AK?

    From February 15 2007 - Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation.
    President Vladimir Putin explained the meaning of such a personnel decision by the fact that in the context of the development and re-equipment of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, associated with the expenditure of "huge budgetary funds," "you need a person with experience in the field of economics and finance"

      Correctly for these purposes it was even better to appoint Berezovsky and not Serdyukov. At least he does not hide his attitude towards the Russian Federation. and this "sent Cossack"

    Before disposing or storing, you need to decide which cartridge we will use. If the weapon has worked, you can sell abroad or under the press. New to store after shooting. Well, respectively, next to store a suitable cartridge.

      Great comment !!! It’s high time to introduce the NATO cartridge so that the Yankees do not bother when they come to our warehouses and realize that they do not need 7,62! DARKNESS, what's going on !!!

    It’s all right to dispose of, and Syria will win the tender for disposal, just dispose of ATGMs, MANPADS, grenade launchers, and well on through the list.
