Set of converting a pistol into a Triarii carbine from the company Hera Arms

The German company Hera Arms develops and produces various accessories, additional devices, butts, guides, holders of various designs and, finally, sets for converting conventional pistols, for example Glock, Walther and others, into a full-fledged carbine. Using such conversion kits as GCC or Triarii (in the army of ancient Rome - the soldiers of the heavy infantry of the Roman legion in the 4th-2nd centuries BC), in four seconds you get a ready-to-fire carbine. The company closely cooperates in this direction with military, paramilitary, private agencies and sports organizations. The attached photos best demonstrate the originality of Hera Arms solutions.

    Why bother with a pistol when you can take a submachine gun? I think that all this "kit" plus the gun itself will cost as much as a normal PP.

      Most likely significantly more expensive than normal PP. These toys are probably made for the civilian market.

          In ancient Greek mythology, the goddess Hera (Gera) is the patroness of marriage, guarding the mother during childbirth.
          One of the twelve Olympic deities, the supreme goddess, wife of Zeus.

          How combines the name of the goddess with the production of weapons - a purely rhetorical question.

            According to the law of the wound, make a good and cheap Gun and a bunch of gadgets and bells and whistles for it for a fee than for more expensive but PP since people are more willing to pay for bells and whistles in the amount of more.

      This is "pribluda" for the civilian market. In many countries (including Germany itself), the number of weapons that can be legally held is strictly limited. With such a body kit for one "place" in the license you have both a pistol and a carbine.
      And yes, the PP is not just civilian and sometimes not the police, and the military, for whom only a pistol is assigned, is not uncommon. The same device is not regulated by any documents, and the fighting qualities of the pistol at least somehow increase.

      It seems to me or at 0:50 in the video there is a "Five" in the back left ?! Maybe this is, of course, Fiat, on the basis of which it was maderequest
      By the way, the idea is interesting, in case of failure of the main weapon, you can quickly convert your pistol into such a weapon. Of course, the hinged module will have its own mass and will always carry it in a backpack, not that it is convenient. This development is rather interesting for the private market, having a pistol, it will allow you to get a small-caliber carbine, without spending money on another full-fledged weapon. From a purely tactical point of view, this weapon is very interesting, a rapid-firing submachine gun and a pistol in one bottle, but in fact, carrying these modules separately from the pistol is still not handy. In nature, there has long been an automatic "Glock" with an attachable buttstock, and a tactical grip can be installed on the front rail of the picatinny. This option is more convenient, separate butt and front grip, you can literally carry it in your pocket, and they will significantly increase the effectiveness of fire. A laser sight or flashlight can be mounted on a side rail (which is optionally installed on the pistol stock). The only "jamb", the lack of sighting devices (I think it is clear why they cannot be fixed on a "naked" pistol drinks ).
      It turns out that this device allows you to quickly make a rifle out of a pistol, but is it necessary in the realities of our time and who apart from free shooters really needs such a thing? I think this is another prodigy am .

    Now there is such a wide variety of canopies on weapons.
    I think a small hinged mirror placed on the arrester could be useful for urban combat. You can hold the weapon on a vskidka to look around the corner of the building or through the window, without protruding. It is only necessary to place the button on the fore-end, and connect the rod to the mirror with a rod.

        I think this type is designed for those who already have a glock. Glock is one of the most popular pistols. Good market.
        After all, people stubbornly take a new iPhone and tablet every 2 years. If not more often.

          Yes, and pistol cartridges allow you to shoot up to 500 meters, take a look at the PPSh, and the aiming range is up to 200m, so the accuracy of this assembly is up to 150 meters.

                I do not quite understand what you mean. They don’t do it on revolvers, the drum chamber becomes symmetrical to the barrel and that’s all, while there is a small gap between the barrel and the chamber, with the exception of the Nagan revolver.

                  So it is, like a Nagan. The secondary trunk is pushed tightly, after being clamped, to avoid backlash. Everything would be noticeably better if there was a thread on the gun barrel onto which the second barrel was wound.

                    Yes, in almost any workshop where normal machines can be made, the only requirement is a pistol with a fixed barrel. But if there is a moving trunk, then only a false trunk will work.

                      Yah? Are you serious or joking?
                      It is possible to adjust, MANUALLY, and precisely with a non-movable barrel, but GLOCK, Colt M1911, Zig-Sauer 226 just have automation with a short stroke, with a decrease when unlocking the breech.
                      My advice to you is to teach the mate part.

                    I wonder how the rifling in the trunks will coincide? You can increase the length only by replacing the standard barrel pistols with a longer one.

                      A smooth barrel, accuracy will slightly deteriorate compared to a conventional barrel and there will be a small breakthrough of gases, which will reduce the speed of the bullet, in general, not a very big fee, for remaking the gun in the PP.

                        You are extremely mistaken. Powder gases bursting around the bullet cause its substantial fluctuations. Accordingly, the accuracy decreases.

                        So deny, you won’t be about the false trunk to which the muffler is attached. And in any case, the movement along the false trunk will accelerate the bullet.
                        A question for those who posted this article, go to the forum where such bells and whistles are discussed, and ask about improving the performance. Sometimes the lack of TX suffers.
                        In any case, the characteristics of the gun are improving, more on this below.

                        Who will like it if you have to shoot a sight after each assembly-disassembly. So I think that the assembly should keep the hundredths, which means that the extension of the barrel is possible, also concerns Glock.

                    but how will this weapon work, taking into account that ALL of these guns operate according to the principle of short-range barrel movement, but here you propose to attach another barrel, when using low-speed ammunition, there may not be enough energy to roll back the bolt. so there’s just a tube through which a bullet passes. accuracy can be increased by increasing the length of the sighting line and using the shoulder rest.

          I could not find a more revealing video - there, in general, without any tricks, a patrol was also put in place (the shooter took only one step), from the hip from a double-barreled shot, the police also shot him.
