#1

Is this the weapon that fires the 9x39 cartridge?

#2

yes this rifle can fire SP 5 and SP 6 ammunition.
this rifle is called VSS .


#3

One of them, at least; besides the VSS Vintorez shown above, there’s also the VSK-94 sniper rifle, the AS “Val”, the SR-3 “Vihkr” and 9A-91 submachine-gun-sized “assault rifles”, the OTs-11 “Tiss” (an AKSU, only chambered in 9x39), and the OTs-14 “Groza” modular rifle-grenade launcher.

Some pictures of the above:

VSS Vintorez (Rifle, Special, Sniper “Spiral”, apprently from the spiral pattern of bleed holes around the barrel);

AS Val (Special Automatic “Rod”, apparently from the suppressor tube)

9A-91 small assault rifle

VSK-94 (a lengthened version of the 9A-91, made specifically for sniping)

SR-3 Vikhr (this is about the size of a full-size Uzi, with armour-piercing capability out to 200 metres)

OTs-11 Tiss (“Yew”; this is an AKSU reworked for the 9x39 round)

OTs-14 Groza (“Thunderstorm”; depending on how you want to put this rifle together, you can assemble it as a combination grenade-launcher/rifle, a compact rifle, (suppressed or non-suppressed), or a sniper rifle (suppressed or non-suppressed)

What might the bullet weight run in one of these? I’m thinking between 250 and 350 gr. Does that sound about right?


#7

Published specs on these are 16.2 grams and 16 grams for the SP-5 and SP-6 respectively; that translates to ~ 250 and 246 grains.
