Modular rifle Robinson Arms M96 - all of this, utterly modular.


Modular rifle Robinson Arms M96


Robinson Arms M96
The design of this rifle allows you to have on one basis several types of individual rifle weaponsstarting from a short assault rifle, ending with a machine gun with a tape drive mechanism.

In this case, a rifle with a full-fledged Picatinny rail for installing a holographic sight, and a machine gun with a top location of the store in the style of "BREN"

    they have already written so much about the stupidity of this modularity in the army that one doesn’t want to repeat it, everyone knows where they are going and just take what is needed, to be happy, they carry a suitcase of bells and whistles with them and change them under fire.

      Talk nonsense. Are you aware that two or three trunks are being dragged now for tasks? And among the troops - do you really also not understand what is the need for modularity?

        it’s better to stash 2 trunks than iterate over such a constructor in battle

          You do not seem to understand the principles of modularity at all. What sorting out in battle? What nonsense.

          There are tasks in a forest belt, in a mountainous area, in urban areas, etc. The modularity allows you to carry half a kilogram-kilogram instead of 3-4 kg of another barrel, and replace the saved weight with ammunition, for example. The trunk does not change in battle, but during a transition from a forest belt to urban development, for example, or a transition from a mountainous area to a plain.

            ... and the parts that are not needed at the moment are stacked in a truck that is driving from behind ... lol It should be reminded that a universal tool will NEVER be equal in effectiveness to a specialized one? If only because specialization just means cutting off tasks that are not needed in this sample

              blah blah blah, and again the car of nonsense, as always? What parts? Barrel, bolt group, receiver? Which are worn in special mounts and pouches, loading at times less than the second or third barrel? Have you read what requirements the specialists make to a modern Russian automatic machine? The modularity among them is not in last place.

              For example, there is such a short note
              http://k-a-r-d-e-n.livejournal.com/8016.html

              -for a 7,62mm machine gun with a barrel length of 415mm, provide for the possibility of replacing the barrel and magazine for using 9x39mm cartridges (the 9x39mm cartridge sleeve is made on the basis of the cartridge case of the 1943 model) in the variant of an assault (small-sized) or silent machine.

              - for a 5,45mm assault rifle with a barrel length of 415mm, provide for replacing the barrel with a shortened ballistic of the AKS74U assault rifle.

                If you carry all this from a computer to a sofa and vice versa, then there really are not many problems. I have a LOT of friends who have from 8 to 15 years of REAL MOUNTAIN WARS experience behind them. Tellingly, they all need such modules, like a fish needs an umbrella. Unfortunately, those "specialists" who GIVE out tasks to developers fight exclusively with a fountain pen at the table, and have never lifted anything heavier than a glass ... request

          Well, as required to prove - you need the right label.

          "The disadvantages of the system, arising from the use of a rear sear in the design, are more than a weapon with a front sear, dispersion when firing single and sensitivity to pollution."

          And this is not the modularity discussed above.

            And which modularity is correct?
            In the comedy "The Naked Pistol", a modular device also appears in the final scene. Very colorful :)
            But seriously, a modular unit will cost several times more, have less survivability and extremely low demand. Mostly in special forces, but even there no one will carry additional modules on their beloved. For nah. This is sitting at the computer, you can speculate that it is not bad to use a pistol with a couple of movements to kick a large-caliber machine gun, but in reality, when these "some kilograms" you smash across rugged terrain on your own hump, you remember mums, dads, grandfathers and grandmothers, as well as their intricate sexual relations, which led to the birth of those who invented all this and adopted it.

        Well, what are 2-3 trunks? And for what tasks and, most importantly, who? Or outplayed in computer toys?
        For the army, modular weapons are just stupidity and an easy way to drink dough. Nothing more.

    Well, regarding this particular instance, it seems that this is something not convenient. In my opinion, the most optimal of modular products is SCAR.

      1. Designers have nothing special to do. At the moment, small arms have reached the limit of development.
      2. Huge stockpiles of weapons and ammunition have been accumulated, in principle, a couple of worlds will be enough, and even play the post-apocalypse, and the plants should work.
      3. The result of the first two, everyone wants to eat, and therefore there is a need to steal the sucker eared, something that he basically does not need.

    It's cool. Again, it develops the brain for a designer, it's like in Soviet times, construction sets were sold with all sorts of pieces of iron, I even remember there was a "Young Electrician" set for technical development. Now it has been replaced by Lego with bricks for downs.

    This modularity clearly leads to a heavier construction. In this case, the fuse on the rifle is made for the right-hander, and the reload handle is on the left. This is not a machine gun and weighs a lot thanks to this modularity to hold it by the fire control handle when reloading. And why is the fuse only 2 positions save and fire? If this is a combat rifle, then is it that she cannot shoot solitary or what? And if the civilian and shoots only single, then why does she need a machine gun module?

    Well, there is nothing wrong with the very idea of ​​modularity, since, provided that the modules are interchangeable, repair is much easier. Plus, there is a change in functionality. How does this particular model relate to dust, dirt, water, and frost? Fighting is not "computer games". What is the reliability?

      And who said that an ordinary, non-modular unit is difficult to fix? There are army gun workshops of various levels of submission. It’s quite possible to cope with a simple repair there, and if they can’t do it, then most likely it is easier to make a new one.
      There is no bad thing, but you have to consider the cost of manufacturing such a unit.
      By the way, I’ve already repeatedly tried to try and find out from supporters of modular devices: but what kind of hell is this change of functionality needed for, the weapons are balanced in the unit, but are there any enhancements given to solve some more serious problems?

      The design is just one of the most reliable and "long-lasting". BAR-18 "played" two world wars and is still in service with the ILC.
      In this case, it all depends on the manufacturer, but I do not think that in a modular design machine gun tolerances will be forgotten and pistol ones will be used.

      As a mind game, this project is highly praised. It’s just a role model at the level of a student’s diploma, or the task of quick wit-professional suitability for a practicing designer.

      And in the civilian market will occupy a separate niche. In the American outback, to participate in a new exercise at a local corn harvest festival.

    Wasn't this rifle dead before it was born? RobArm, as far as I know, scored on her and made XCR (which I also haven’t seen anywhere).

      Not dead, the civilian market completely consumes it, as far as I remember. And the XCR contest did not go as far as I remember.

        Wikipedia states:
        The M96 has a relatively small following, probably due in large part to its high price and new manufacturer. There do not appear to have been any military or law enforcement sales of the M96, probably for the same reasons. As of 2012, the rifle is no longer in production.

        So, rather, she died.

      Aiming is intuitive. For cnhtkm.s "from the hip". Everything should be cool. laughing The main thing is the accessories: the Rambo 2000 knife and the camouflage paint on the face. Festival - so with machine gun shooting.

      The model is clearly tailored to the American civilian market.

    AK74 is approximately equivalent in technology and workmanship. This is a typical military product, which has only the most necessary and nothing more. It’s probably twice as inferior to Russian weapons as there is no reliable information. Modular designs are far from news in weapons matters, but their appearance should be associated with another attempt to save budget money. A kind of weapon for the poor. A much better result can be obtained if these modules are nevertheless connected in the factory and produce reliable assault rifles and machine guns, such as, for example, highly unified AK-kits PKK is also a kind of modular principle.

    Hello gentlemen. Personally, my opinion is that a bicycle was invented. The Germans know the adapter option, which allows you to fire from the store, and if necessary from a machine gun belt. Sorry I can’t remember the system, but the diploma drawing on this topic hangs on the wall

        The Soviet RP-45 is a prime example. But this is not the level of application of the concept that would be considered "modularity"
