Military Review

Veterinary gun caliber 9 mm. B&T VP9

23
One of the most interesting novelties of the EnforceTac exhibition, a specialized department for the needs of the police and the army at the IWA & OutdoorClassics 2014 exhibition in Nuremberg, was the VP9 single-shot pistol - "Veterinary Pistol, 9mm" - a 9 mm veterinary pistol presented by the Swiss company B&T ( formerly Brügger & Thomet AG). The official name of the new product - "humane killer" - it was originally created as a tool for conducting special operations of intelligence services and the army, according to the website all4shooters.com.




Burgger VP9 is a gun with a simple design: the minimum number of moving parts when fired, single-action trigger, manual button fuse, tubular milled receiver, ultra-short rifled stainless steel barrel, fixed Glock gun-style aiming devices, rotary bolt with 2 combat gear stops, like a reduced Mauser rifle bolt. With each shot, the shutter is recharged manually by turning the small round knob 90 degrees counterclockwise. The gun uses 9x19 mm cartridges and a five-round SIG-Sauer P225 pistol magazine, the polymer case of which serves as a pistol grip when inserted into weapon.



When the trigger is pressed and the gun is completely locked - only in this case a shot will occur - there is only one way out of the powder gases from the barrel through the muffler chamber, which simplifies its design. Aluminum silencer housing with front seal. Inside there are several silicone rubber partitions, which reduce the sound intensity of the shot to 31 decibels. The silencer is designed on average for 20 shots, after which the efficiency is reduced. Included are spare partitions that can be installed in less than 3 minutes in the field.

B&T VP9 pistols are supplied with one magazine and two silencers: normal and "practical", made of aluminum, type MP5SD. The absence of baffles makes the gun easy to maintain and clean. During special covert operations B&T VP9 can be used without a magazine, hidden in the sleeve of the garment.

      Rather 31 decibels reduces volume

    Some kind of crap — for special operations, a lot of more compact and ergonomically calibrated weapons were invented — what we have, what potential opponents have. Why is a veterinarian? Piggy can be killed from cheaper weapons, the same current ??? In general, surprised by the article.

      For that matter this is an updated and modernized version of "Welrod"

      B&T in reality does not develop anything, but only tunes ready-made models.

      Piglets can also be killed with cheaper weapons
      These clowns do it
      Copenhagen Zoo killed a completely healthy giraffe Marius. On Sunday morning, the 18-month-old giraffe was given his favorite treat - a rye bread dish. After that, the veterinarian put to his head nail gun , and pulled the trigger.
      Also surprised that in addition to the construction was not found
      However, what to take from the poor?

        By the way, on Monday, they soaked 4 more lions in the same zoo - look on the Internet, if not laziness.

      For the director of the Copenhagen Zoo, Bengt Holst will be just right.
      Let him experience it for himself, CKOTINA ... It is obligatory in "live broadcast". With the announcement "The End to the Crown (or the Crown of the End) of Nature" ...

      Veterinary medicine (from lat. Veterinarius, veterinary medicine) is branch of sciencewhich deals prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, as well as disorders and injuries of animals.

      "Aibolites", it seems, do not slaughter animals at all ...
      I probably have a sick fantasy: at the words "veterinary pistol" and "special services", a picture appears - the night, "tsrushnik" enters the barn to eliminate the sick cows with foot-and-mouth disease, which, in turn, are hatching insidious plans to destroy the United States.
      In general, either the translation of the article is not adequate, or I’m not catching up with something ...

        For example, in the UK, veterinarians are the only citizens who are allowed to carry pistols. They need them to protect them from animals.

    Compared to the PSS / 6P28 pistol (USSR / Russia), anachronism and squalor.

      You are not entirely correct. The difference lies (and it is significant!) In the ammunition. That is, for the PSS, respectively, a cartridge of the PS-4 type is needed, and for a "veterinary" (I can't do it) pistol - a standard cartridge 9x19, parabellum, if I'm not mistaken.

    A single-shot pistol with a magazine for 5 rounds ?! What nonsense.

    The Chinas, similar to manual reloading, already, either from the end of the 80s, or from the beginning of the 90s in service ..

    Yes, I’m afraid to look at this cattail - as if it wouldn’t break from a gaze. Special operations? Yes, it must be taken to them in a shockproof container, taken out, shot and hidden right away, otherwise it will burst out in your hands. Slag.

    There is nothing to do with veterinary matters, the name is this. These are weapons for reconnaissance, sabotage and special forces. Made under a standard pistol cartridge, the sound of a shot is well muffled. The design is as simple and cheap as possible, you can equip everyone. Not a masterpiece, of course, it’s simple working gun.
