    Palmetto State Armory’s AK-V 9mm Folder

    Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

    Palmetto State Armory has announced a new AK pistol product release. The AK-V 9mm with triangle side-folding brace and hammer-forged parts is based on the Vitayaz-Sn Russian submachine gun.

    All are:
    -Rated for 9mm +P+ ammunition and reportedly perform well suppressed.
    -Using a Nitride 4150 barrel with 1/10 in. twist, threaded 1/2×28 for use with common 9mm muzzle devices and suppressors.
    -Shipping with a U9 35 round patterned magazine (which will work in CZ Scorpion 9mm firearms) where allowed by law.

    All feature:
    -Forged trunnion, bolt, and bolt carrier.
    -Picatinny railed hinged dust cover, designed to co-witness common low mount red dot optics with the front and rear sight(s). The dust cover is flared to prevent the safety selector from riding above the dust cover.
    -PSA AK Picatinny stock adapter to replace the M4 stock adapter found in other PSA AK pistol models, allowing use of the left-side folding brace.
    -PSA design utilizing the Palmetto State Armory U9 35 round magazine, and also features last round bolt hold open. The PSA AK-V will accept CZ brand scorpion magazines.

    This is not as likely to cause ptyalism as LAV’s SOF-AK, but it’s still interesting.

    PSA (a part of JJE Capital) advises these firearms are currently available for Pre-Order only and are expected to ship within 6-9 weeks of purchase. PSA is online at palmettostatearmory.com.

    Two In One – Rheinmetall’s New 60mm Mortar for Infantry and Special Forces

    Tuesday, August 13th, 2019

    Rheinmetall has developed a new 60mm mortar for infantry and special forces. The RSG60 features innovative design and engineering characteristics which make this indirect fire system very light and easy to handle.  A few quick manual adjustments turn the 15.8 kg standard infantry version into a commando mortar weighing just 6.8 kg, with no need for tools. This makes the RSG60 a two-in-one solution.

    Depending on the ammunition and charges, the standard version can attain ranges of up 3,200 metres. Equipped with a thirty centimetre-longer barrel, the range increases by around 500 metres. The commando variant of the RSG60 has a range of around 2,000 metres.

    About 70 centimetres long, the barrel is made of steel with a carbon fibre over-wrap. This assures the necessary stability at the same time as lower weight, resulting in a barrel that weighs around 30 percent less than a conventional steel mortar. The base plate is made of carbon fibre composite material. The novel design of this indirect fire weapon not only saves space, it can be set up and ready to fire in a matter of seconds. Furthermore, by loosening the retaining bolts, it is possible to separate the RSG60 from the base plate in around thirty seconds, transforming it into lighter-weight commando mortar.

    Development of the new mortar began in October 2017 at Rheinmetall Waffe Munition. Rheinmetall’s objective was to augment the Group’s versatile family of 60mm ammunition and existing Rheinmetall Electronics fire control technology with a matching, future-oriented weapon system. Right from the start, development work therefore focused on low weight, speed and ergonomics.  

    The RSG60 has repeatedly undergone successful test firing.
