New rifles and plastic machine guns to be created in Russia


Russian arms producers will create a new generation of automatic polymers and fundamentally new family of rifles, the head of the Central Design and Research Bureau of sporting and hunting weapons Alexei Sorokin said.
“The details (of the created weapons), for obvious reasons, are not specified. Now more and more weapons aremade of plastic and composite materials. So, we can say that our experts design almost a polymer machine,” Sorokin said.
He explained that the barrel, bolt and slide, are still metal, and everything else – from plastic. He suggested that in the near future such plastics may appear that will make it possible to produce the barrel from composite material.
