This picture piqued my interest. As a fan of the Magpul FMG, I had to find out more about the similar looking gun below.
It is called the PP-90M
. It was designed in the 90s and is chambered in 9x18mm Makarov.
They also make a PP-90M1. A non folding sub machine gun but this one uses a cylindrical magazine.
This revolver is rather interesting. It is the OTs-38, 7.62 Stechkin Special Revolver. The swing out cylinder doesnt swing out like you think it should. It opens on the right and hinges out like a car door. If that wasn’t strange enough, it appears this revolver fires from the bottom cylinder similar to a Mateba or Chiappa Rhino.
According to the KBP website
, the OTs-38 uses a special 7.62 mm SP-4 round.
Noiseless and flameless shot is made due to special SP-4 cartridges with power gases localized in the case. The OTs-38 revolver can be rightfully called noiseless, since the noise level when making a shot and dry firing is practically identical.
