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.



   Night shooting of military police officers of the Western Military District in the Nizhny Novgorod Region (c) of the RF Ministry of Defense. The photographs show the AK74M assault rifles and the 1PN93 sight.








   It is clearly seen why, since the second half of the 80s, there was a search for the optimal mass production muzzle device for the AK74 / AK74M. Muzzle devices of the modernized AK74 under the name A60, A61, borrowed from the RPK74, in 1987 showed an excellent muzzle suppression effect, especially when firing in bursts. But the decrease in efficiency at the same time did not satisfy the MO, so until now for the new rifle Army had requirements for the presence of a muzzle brake, while already in the 200th series and in the RMO, flash suppressors (with a compensator function) were introduced.

Might have been posted already, but I like this video. I personally wasn't aware of what kinds of innovations in portable weapons technology have been made in the last few years.




   So 1st one is basically PP-2000 and 2nd is SR-3M. Some hardcore i n n o v a t i o n right there.

These are the standard barrel length variant of the QBZ-191







New pictures of short barrel variant:






Most likely the QBU-191, precision DMR version:






They mention that the QBU-191 variant will each come with an LPVO similar to the Trijicon VCOG in this video. It's likely is that the QBU-191 comes with the MLOK type handguard since in the pictures with the rifles with those handguards also seem to come with a LPVO scope.


One design requirement is that these rifles must be Wifi compatible (Actually the nightvision scope)

      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?
