Has China started to make these?


#5

Falcon, that happened some years ago already.


#6


This ammunition maybe successfully developed a few years ago.
According to the experience, I think they may have already served.


#7

Tiengulden what are the cartridges in the green box with brass cases? They look much like Russian 4.5x40R. Are these under production in China? Russian boxes look different (those I know so far).


#8

Fascinating, I didn’t know about those.

Are there any details concerning them? Overall length, case length and diameter, projectile length and weight, muzzle velocity - that kind of thing. Also a high-res photo of one I could use in a publication? (I would like to make a Jane’s Ammunition Handbook entry!)

it’s real 4.5 for this
"Type QSS05 4.5mm underwater pistol", QSS is an acronym for the Chinese Phonetic Alphabet, Q=small arms, S=subaqueous, S=pistol


#10

Do you have a better close up photo of 4.5x40R? Interesting are they special supply from Russia or made (license or clone) in China?
Thank you!

hello everibody
I’m surprise because I never heard someone tell something about underwater weapons with darts for this time only three weapons in service:
Germany HK P 11
Russia SPP 1
Russia APS
China ?


#16

I know at least one such cartridge in the west. Unfortunately no way to get info from there.


#17

As a customer, I would choose reliable products from Russia.
