Delays in firing from the PM and ways to eliminate them
The Makarov pistol is a simple and unbreakable weapon. It eliminated almost all the problems that occurred when shooting at the gun "Walter PP", taken as a basis for the design of the structure, for example, such as chucking the cartridge into the bevel of the chamber. However, the delays in firing from the PM are and are mainly associated with improper operation and poor care of the weapon.
A few rules
Everyone who works with a PM pistol mustto know the types of delays in shooting and the ways to eliminate them, on this depends on the safety of shooting, and, therefore, life. For reasons of origin, they are conditionally divided into eliminated and not eliminated directly when firing.
Frequently distributed among inexperienced employeessuch a mistake: the unexpectedly occurring delay is confusing and the person turns the gun to look into the trunk. This happens instinctively, especially if the situation is urgent, and the person does not remove the finger from the trigger. After the second press, a shot may occur and it will lead to a disastrous result.
Therefore, the first step to eliminating the delay is to removefinger from the trigger, without removing the tip, and only then determine the type of delay. If it refers to disposable - take the necessary measures and continue shooting, and if it is impossible to eliminate it when shooting it is impossible to defuse the gun and put it in the holster, then send it for repair.
The most common type of delay inshooting is a misfire, even unfamiliar with weapons people know about it. The main sign of misfiring, in addition to the fact that the shot did not occur, is the shutter stop in the rear position on the gate delay. The cause of a misfire may be a malfunction of the cartridge, in which case the delay is solved by simple recharging. Another reason is the thickening of the lubricant or the contaminated channel under the drummer. In this case, when shooting, the problem can not be solved, it is necessary to clean the weapon well, to remove carbon deposits, varnish and condensed lubricant.
A misfire can also be caused by a weakenedlock the fuse. During the shot, the fuse is switched on, so a misfire occurs. If the fault persists, replace the fuse or latch.
The cartridge may not be fully closed by the shutter. The latter, which has not reached the extreme front position, hinders the progress of the trigger. This fault occurs most often due to the fact that the gun needs to be cleaned. Methods for eliminating the delay in shooting PM - the sending of the shutter. Then it is necessary to cock the trigger manually or to fire a shot by self-cocking.
There are other reasons for the delay in firing from the PM. These include the failure of the cartridge from the store or its non-movement into the chamber. As a rule, this malfunction arises from the contamination of the weapon or the malfunction of the store. If it is not solved with a simple recharge or occurs intermittently, it is necessary to clean the gun or replace the store.
There is a possibility of sticking or pinching the cartridge case. One of the reasons may be the contamination of the moving parts in the mechanism or the failure of the spring, reflector or the ejector itself.
This fault can occur if the window,intended for the ejection of the cartridge case, was something blocked, for example, when shooting from a shelter. Elimination, although it takes some time, but the situation does not apply to fatalities when firing. First you need to remove the magazine, put the bolt in the rear position and after removing the cartridge, return the magazine to its place. You can continue shooting.
Delays in firing from the PM can occur andanother character. When you press the trigger, you can shoot several shots in a row, as when shooting from an automatic weapon. This is also due to the contamination and breakage of some parts of the pistol mechanism: a worn out combat trigger, a whisker, a weakened or broken whisper spring and some other malfunctions.
In this case, you need to remove your finger from the trigger and turn on the fuse. In non-combat conditions, clean the gun, inspect the mechanism and replace the damaged and worn parts.
Elimination of delays in firing from a PM is not usuallyis associated with complex manipulations, if it is not breakage or wear. The main thing is not to let them. Proper handling and care of the gun will prevent many delays when firing from the PM.
Makarov's pistol is a reliable and reliable weaponwith a simple mechanism. It is necessary to clean it in time and inspect the mechanism for wear and malfunctions, pay special attention to the moving parts of the structure, do not delay with repairs, if necessary. Do not often complete disassembly of the gun, as well as inspect cartridges before shooting.
Some delays are related to weather conditions. After finding the gun in low temperature conditions, before you charge it, you need to withdraw the bolt several times with your hand, and trigger the trigger by pulling the trigger.
But even with proper handling, freelance situations arise, so you need to be able to determine the type of delay and know exactly how to fix it.
