The history of "Gyurzy" originates in 1991, when the Soviet arms designer Peter Serdyukov presented to the public two prototypes of pistols. Their distinguishing feature was the use of high efficiency cartridges (9 * 21 mm.) With a high penetrating ability of bullets.
The need for the appearance of such weapons was dictated by the fact that in the late 1980s, personal protective equipment in the form of flak jackets capable of stopping a bullet fired from the short-barreled weapons used at that time began to be actively introduced into armaments of many countries. Gun "Gyurza" due to its technical characteristics made it possible to carry out aimed fire from a distance of 100 meters, at a distance of up to 50 m punch a 2.5-mm titanium sheet, disable unarmored vehicles and vehicles.
The patent for the construction of Gyurzy was obtained in 1995, and the following year, after the demonstration at the exhibition on armament of the ground forces, held in Omsk, the tests were completed and mass production began. The gun "Gyurza" was used by the special forces of the FSO and the FSB, and since 2003 it was adopted by the army units with the name of the ATP.
The design of ATP has a number of distinctive features. First of all, it is a steel frame, which is pressed directly into the handle of the weapon, made of a very strong glass-filled polyamide. By analogy, the trigger guard is made.
At the heart of gun automatics, recoil is used in the short stroke of the barrel. Further - the trunk channel is locked by means of coupling the barrel with the bolt using a vertically swinging larva. This scheme is not new and was used earlier in the production of other models of pistols. During the movement of the barrel backward, the larva emerges from the shutter protrusions, the trunk "separates" from the bolt, stopping the ledge on the frame. The bolt itself, moving, ejects the sleeve. The pistol "Gyurza" has trigger trigger mechanism. The first shot can be carried out either by self-cocking, or by a pre-cocked cock.
The gun "Gyurza" is made taking into account the requirements for the safety of wearing and using weapons. The design provides two fuses, both - automatic. The button of the first one is located on the back of the handle and is removed only when the palm is fully covered. The second - blocks the trigger, directly on which the button for its disconnection is located. Depending on needs and features of use, ATP is available in several modifications with slight differences.
What conclusion can be drawn? If we talk about quality weapons, then to this, undoubtedly, belongs and the gun "Gyurza". Buy a pneumatic version, for example, you can almost in any weapons store, which is due to the popularity of the model.
