Let's all take a trip back to the late 1970s and early 1980s.  This was the time of punk.  This was the time of despair.   Punk was all about minimalism; strip everything down to a few chords, wear

Stechkin's Abakan (TKB-0146). https://www.kalashnikov.ru/abakan-stechkina-avtomat-stechkina-tkb-0146/        Bullpup, system of "recoil impulse shifted in time", 2-stage

So what, my 5.56 rounds are groundbreaking too if I shoot the dirt.

   PSS-2. New more powerfull catridge was developed to hit protected targets, for it new gun was made. Level 2 (IDK by which standarts) bodyarmor at 25 meterx max range, noiseless.

   Based on SR-1 Gurza, 2 safeties (grip and on the trigger), single stack mag with automatic chambering of round when new magazine is inserted. Accepted for service.

The programmatics speak is so bad the presenters have a hard time reading it out loud. 

 

 

   It feels like a speach developed to make so other countries special services couldn't understand it, lol.

   RPK-16 drum mag, according to Razvedos it is not good. Not only it have usual problems for high-capacity drum mags (this one is 95 rounds, BTW) such as weight and size, but it is also unreliable if not frequently services and so fragile (Razvedos opens it at 4:20 and shows 4 out of 16 "leafs" being welded back after they broke) that normal use breaks that thing.

This squares with what my little birds had been telling me. The 95 round drum was a disaster and led to the demise of the entire RPK-16, basically.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
