The legendary Scorpion pistol in a traumatic version - Scorpion Sa vz.61 Rubber


Gas pistol Škorpion (Scorpion) Sa vz. 61RA caliber 9, having the ability to fire rubber bullet cartridges - civil weapon, which is a means of effective self-defense. The main purpose of Sa vz.61 is to temporarily disable an attacking subject.

Adaptation for traumatic cartridge was carried out by the company Grand Power (Slovakia).

To adapt to the traumatic version was used a new trunk. The trunk is steel, solid; The trunk channel of the Т10 type has two small pins, which, in combination with a long barrel, provides muzzle energy that is comparable to the record holders of the latest known tests. The possibility of firing solid objects is excluded in accordance with the requirements of the ECC. In addition, the automatic mode was removed. Included with a bent "native" store (does not work with "nines" and is attached for beauty, aesthetics or experimentation) a new direct store, made specifically for the cartridge 9 mm PA, is supplied.

The choice of cartridge 9P.A. for a traumatic pistol is obvious. First, it is the most common traumatic ammunition in Russia. Secondly, the Scorpion Sa vz.61 submachine gun was previously used with 7,62x17 ammunition, which had rather modest dimensions. As a result, for reworking a Scorpion combat pistol, for example, under AKBS ammunition 10x28, it would have required much more time and labor, which guaranteedly increased the already considerable cost of a new traumatic pistol.

The legendary Scorpion pistol in a traumatic version - Scorpion Sa vz.61 Rubber

The Scorpion Sa vz.61 Rubber automatics implements the principle of working with a free gate. Firing single shots or bursts allows trigger type triggering. Fuse-translator can be transferred to one of three positions: the rear ("1") - a single shot; medium ("0") - fuse; front ("2") - the queue. The safety lever-translator is located above the pistol grip on the left side, allowing you to conveniently and quickly work with it. The shot is made from the closed shutter. The “Scorpion Sa vz.61 Rubber” pistol is equipped with a firing rate retarder due to the small mass of the bolt and ammunition, which allows for more than 100 shots per minute.

In this regard, after each shot, the retarder, placed in the handle, blocks for some time the bolt in the rearmost position with a spring-loaded grip, after which it releases the bolt. This made it possible to achieve a rate of fire of 840 shots per minute, while the pistol is well controlled when firing in automatic mode. The cocking handle was made two-sided. On both sides of the receiver are cocking levers, made in the form of a button. "Scorpion Sa vz.61 Rubber" is equipped with a steel butt folding up. At production bent wire was used. Sights - L-shaped rear sight and front sight, which allow you to conduct aimed fire at a distance of 75 or 150 meters.

On the territory of the Russian Federation, Scorpion Sa vz.61 Rubber certified LLC PKP AKBS.

In the United States, Czechpoint USA supplies this submachine gun under the designation .380 AUTO Sa vz. 61 Scorpion. This semi-automatic version is designed for .380 ACP cartridge (9х17mm). The original Scorpion used the .32 ACP cartridge (7,65x17mm). The new Scorpion caliber received since the progressive rifle society of the United States believes that the lack of possibility of automatic fire in the Škorpion Sa vz. 61 chambered for .32 ACP makes it just a “toy”. Despite this, even the new cartridge does not fully satisfy the demands of the US arms market. The main feature of the version for the US market is the new transparent polymer magazine for 20 cartridges (empty magazine weight - 50 grams, curb - 250 grams) and the lack of a butt. The cost of a semi-automatic Scorpion pistol in the United States is about 615 dollars.

The Scorpion Sa vz.61 pistol is not only a weapon for self-defense, but is of collection value, since it is made from a combat model, which was produced in the 1960-s. Initially, the Scorpion submachine gun was developed for arming tankers, signalers, as well as soldiers of other specialties. In service in Czechoslovakia was adopted in 1961 year. The Scorpion was shipped to Angola, Egypt, Libya, Iraq and some other countries. In addition, Scorpion was used by a number of terrorist groups during some high-profile terrorist attacks in the 1970-1980's.

The main advantages of the gun Scorpion Sa vz. 61 are strength, large store capacity, high quality workmanship, as well as a large service life. The disadvantages include a rather large size and considerable weight. It is the shortcomings of the traumatic Scorpion pistol that determine its main purpose. It can be recommended as a home security weapon, since the weight and dimensions do not allow it to be constantly worn, ao secrecy and speech can not be.

The approximate cost in Russia is from 25 to 35 thousand rubles.

    "... It can be recommended as a home security weapon, since the weight and dimensions do not allow it to be constantly worn on oneself, ao secrecy and speech is out of the question ..."
    It is not excluded that "kulibins" can be purchased for alteration. There are heaps of similar cases ...

      Do not forget to remove the fly before use.
      Funny, the only non-lethal thing that can stop, regardless of the pain threshold: a pepper bottle and a police-style shocker, you still can’t buy under license. And the rubber sands, with which perhaps the eye can be knocked out, expand in the assortment, blossom and smell, sadness in general.

    The approximate cost in Russia is from 25 to 35 thousand rubles.

    Well, taking into account all the tendencies about the "protection of the domestic manufacturer", the price will be at a half-tax, and secondly ... can I fall out of the latest trends, but the ban on the import of foreign injuries and components has already been canceled?

      traumatic weapons to buy prices In Russia, the traumatic gun Scorpion Sa vz.61 Rubber fits the category of gas weapons with the possibility of firing ammunition with a rubber bullet. This model was first introduced to the general public in 2010.

      This model of traumatic weapons was made on the basis of the well-known model of the Czechoslovak submachine gun Scorpion Sa vz.61 - in fact, the Russian model is an adaptation of the combat model for a 9-caliber cartridge of traumatic action. In order to prevent the possibility of firing a solid object, the gun barrel is mounted on a pin, immediately after the chamber there are two obstacles in the barrel channel, as in the T10 model.

      I understand the Russian assembly.

    I'm not particularly special, but the difference, as I understand it, is between 80 and 90 KJ. ALSO BETWEEN BULBS IN 100 W AND 95 W

    TechCrim »70 J - 19.5 rub / pcs
    "KSPZ" 50 J (Slaughter) - 19.5 rub / pcs
    "KSPZ" 80 J (Slaughter +) - 25 rub / pcs

    The quality is good, only for that kind of money only rich collectors can buy it. A kitchen knife for cutting meat will cost less, and there will be more benefit from it, if we have already talked about self-defense.
