The revolver is intended for engaging the enemy manpower at ranges up to 50 m with a silenced cartridge. Compared to a silenced pistol, this revolver provides higher concealement of special operations due to the complete lack of firing signature (it produces almost no sound and absolutely no flash upon firing). Specially-designed 7.62x42 mm silent ammo achieves low volume of discharge by blocking the gases within the case. Bullet receives only the initial push through the plunger within the case, and all the gases are contained within, thus making fire very quiet.A hammer-type trigger mechanism is of double action. The preliminary cocked hammer can be set on manual safety, that allows carrying a cocked revolver quite safely. The revolver is also provided with a safety that prevents from a discharge if the cylinder is swung-out or incompletely closed, or if the gun is struck or dropped. Due to the barrel location below the cylinder axis, the position of the shooters hand is more stable, ensuring better accuracy and higher practical rate of fire. As the cartridge is rimless, the cylinder is fed via full moon clips. Loading with a 5-round clip and simultaneous extraction of all fired cases reduces preparation of fire. At the customer's request the revolver can be equipped with a built-in laser target pointer. Cartridge: 7.62 mm SP-4.
