The need for a pistol, which is fundamentally different from the special detachments of personal short barrels used in the army and armed with special forces and special services weaponsappeared in 1980's. The main reason is the widespread introduction of light personal protective equipment of various classes into the armed forces of many countries of the world. For example, a second-class bulletproof vest can withstand a 7,62-mm bullet shot, which has a steel core, when fired from a TT, and an 9-mm bullet of a standard NATO cartridge, when fired from Beretta M 92FS.
In addition to law enforcement agencies and armies, terrorist and criminal groups began to use body armor. As a rule, when using a body armor, no more than 30 percent of the body are protected, however, the experience of combat use of personal weapons, especially by the police, shows that most of the firing contacts are sudden and transient. In conditions of lack of time for accurate aiming at vital organs, the fire is fired on the hull, which, using protective equipment, makes it possible to survive and return fire.
Special Forces fighters always needed to equip their weapons with devices that would provide accurate and low-noise shooting. The TSNIITOCHMASH constructs took into account the suggestions of users. So the modification of this powerful and reliable pistol was born.
Automation CP-1M "Gurza" works on the use of recoil energy during the short stroke of the barrel. Unlocking and locking the barrel bore is performed by the shutter during the interaction with the swinging contactor. USM hammer type double action with an open arrangement of the trigger allows you to fire self-platoon and combat platoon. Supply of cartridges from a box-type removable magazine on 18 cartridges spring. The shop is located in the pistol grip. When changing store cartridge automatically sent to the chamber.
The Gurzy version of the CP-1MP was equipped with a special module with Piccini straps. The slats are intended for mounting a collimator sight, tactical flashlight and laser pointer. At the muzzle of the barrel there is a threaded ring for the installation of a device for flameless and noiseless firing. On the gun "Gyurza" CP-1MP collimator sight, laser designator, tactical flashlight can be mounted. Sighting devices (front and rear sight) are located on the gate. The frame of the gun is made of armid with fittings. This made it possible to significantly reduce the cost and weight of the weapon.
Security is ensured by two independent fuses that allow you to instantly open fire. One of the fuses is located on the back of the pistol grip, blocking the sear, the second is placed on the trigger blocking it. Gun control elements are designed for left and right hand. For the convenience of aimed fire with both hands on the front of the trigger guard are made notches.
