    I think Morpheus has made a little mistake... Smile

    As it seems that PSS-2's grip is not as wide as that of the PSS (?), it would seem that PSS-2 should be using rounds with subcaliber supercavitating projectiles.

    Sub calibre super cavitation rounds?

    Would not be useful as a replacement for the subsonic silent PSS pistol... super cavitation is for underwater pistols like the SPP-1?

    Ironically a good replacement for the SPP-1 underwater pistol could be the GSh-18 which has proven to be able to fire underwater and could use the 4.5mm subcalibre underwater round based on the 9x19mm round...

    the use of modified underwater versions of standard rounds means a modern naval special forces soldier can carry an ADS rifle with both 5.45mm underwater cartridges and 5.45mm above water rounds and 9mm underwater rounds and 9mm above water rounds in a GSh-18... so they wont need to carry an above water assault rifle and an underwater assault rifle and an above water pistol and an underwater pistol.

    In other words he can carry an ADS and GSh-18 and a GP-35 under barrel grenade launcher, instead of having to carry an AK-74, an APS, a Makarov, an SPP-1 and a GP-25. Also three different calibres and types of ammo instead of 5.

    Regarding this new pistol... it looks rather better than the old PSS but I think if it is still only going to have a 6 round mag that a decent gas sealed revolver would be rather better as it retains the cartridge cases instead of throwing them all over the crime scene...

    There are various speed loader options for a revolver today... and if it opened like a Webley then it would be fairly quick to load and fire... though combining a gas seal design with a break open cylinder mechanism might be a bit harder than I am making out.

    The relatively small calibre 7.62mm cartridges should allow for an 8 or 9 round cylinder to be used... which makes it better than the PSS or PSS-1 in terms of ready to fire rounds and of course the ability to take the empties away with you. (ie if you don't fire all 8 or 9 shots, or if you have to reload break open the pistol into a bag to capture all the empties and reload with a cylinder clip...)

    You are absolutely right. Embarassed

    It was, however, a big mistake. Embarassed

    I think it was last night that I woke up in the middle of the night and recalled that post of mine, realizing what a total mix-up that post was. My subconscious was obviously distressed about the whole thing. It seemed as though someone had had too many good mojitos while writing that post. I wanted to write a post to correct all of that, but I totally forgot. Embarassed

    As Garry correctly concluded, I was thinking of SPP-1 and those rounds with subcaliber supercavitating projectiles that can turn a standard pistol into an amphibious one.

    Now, regarding the PSS-2, I should say that PSS-2 with its longer round and not so large grip (is this true or not?) is possibly using a new feed technology that I would next conjecture about.  Arrow The rounds (only six of them?) are conjectured to be positioned in the magazine in a very pronounced nose-up angle (less probably, in a nose-down angle), and some feature in the feed mechanism should compensate for all of this extreme nose-up angle during feed.

    By the way, the confused nature of my previous post has gotten me thinking about the epistemological and neurological aspects of that confusion; very interesting.

    "tipex12", thanks for your reply.

    Whenever I see pictures of the Russian military training, they are most of the time using the SVD Sniper, why don't they use the Orsis or Lobavev or other sniper rifles?

    Because those are not frontline sniper rifles. They cost like dozen SVDs, and are overkill for what squad dedicated marksman would use it for. Small amount of those were seen in hands of MVD and FSB but thats all, they are more sporting rifles than for military use.

    there's also another reason. There are now other optics available for the rifle with ad hoc zeroing. In those pictures you have brand new Dedals 8x30-32/8x40 and what looks like 12x50. This allows for the SVD to basically move out of the 600m killzone up to a more respectable 800 with only ammunition and optic swap.

    Also thanks to the Universal mount, the rifle retains its Iron sights, so it doesn't sacrifice anything except some more RUR from the Budget.

    Yes, SV98 was issued to some VDV and Recon units. But that rifle is not extremly expencive, also its quite rugged. Its basically analogue to L115A3.
