   On February 12, the delegation of the V.A. Degtyarev's plant took part in the demonstration of promising weapons at the invitation of the Russian Ministry of Defense. The show took place at one of the sites of the Patriot Park (Moscow).

   Company presented 12 units of the most modern small arms, as well as a robotic complex of range equipment, designed to quickly create a target environment.

   The delegation of the Ministry of Defense was headed by General of the Army V.V. Gerasimov (Chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces - First Deputy Minister of Defense of the RF) and Colonel-General Yu-B.B. Evkurov (Head of the Main Combat Training Directorate of the RF Armed Forces and the Aviation Safety Service of the RF Armed Forces).

   KORD-5.45/Tokar-2, A545/762, short barreled Pecheneg-SP, some sort of mods for PKM.

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

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

   State tests of the full-size Lebedev pistol (PL) will end in the spring of 2021. This was reported to TASS by the press service of the Kalashnikov group of companies (part of the Rostec state corporation), which developed the pistol.

    “A full-size version of the Lebedev pistol is intended for the Russian Guard, which is at the final stage of state testing. It is expected that the tests will end this spring, then the trial operation of the pistol will begin, after which company expects that the pistol will arouse the interest of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation". As noted in the press service, it is assumed that the PL will replace the Makarov pistol (PM). “This should be the same mass pistol as the PM,” said Kalashnikov Concern representative.

      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?
