In the coming year, the Ground Forces will continue to be equipped with modern equipment and weapons, including special-purpose ones. For example, the press service of the Eastern Military District reported that the scouts of the combined-arms army in the Amur region are now mastering the 9-mm Yarygin "Grach" pistol of the latest modification.

"Military personnel train in tactics of actions with a pistol in rooms, dense forest and other areas of close fire combat, where the use of weapons with a long barrel makes it difficult to quickly prepare. Also, scouts master the cleaning of weapons and the rapid elimination of conditional delays, training in disassembly and assembly of the gun in low temperatures. After the end of the New Year holidays, the servicemen will fire their pistols at the training ground, " the press service of the VVO informed.

It is known that the improved "Rook" has an increased magazine of up to 18 rounds. The pistol has a smooth descent with a small trigger stroke. This ensures a quick return to the line of sight after the shot is fired and allows you to fire at a higher rate. Also, the "Grach" is equipped with a bar for mounting a sub-barrel flashlight with a laser designator.

This gun can fire armor-piercing rounds, that is, hit well-protected targets. Experts say that this weapon is particularly valuable for intelligence units in the case of close combat.

"Grach" is not the only modern pistol entering service with the Russian army. So, earlier the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that the military will be given fifty of the latest 9-mm pistol complexes "Boa". The gun is not accidentally called a complex, as it can be produced in several versions with cartridges of different power.

It was also reported that the market will offer its civilian version. It is primarily intended for athletes. Here you do not need bullets of lethal force, which are designed for the "Boa". But you need those that provide the best ballistics of the bullet and the accuracy of its hit on target.

It is known that in September 2019, the "Boa" successfully passed the experimental military operation. It is characterized by a relatively small mass, which in the unloaded form is 780 g, and in the curb-980 g. The capacity of the "Boa" magazine is 18 rounds. The weapon uses Russian cartridges of 9x21 mm caliber, which allows you to break through a 4 mm thick armor plate at a distance of 50 m.

There is no more powerful pistol in this caliber in the world. According to experts, the designers managed to solve an almost insoluble problem. In dimensions and weight, not much exceeding those possessed by "Makarov", it was possible to realize the power of the shot, much superior to that which is characteristic of the" Colt", which has a much larger caliber and dimensions.
