Features Show features

This pistol is short recoil operated, locked breech weapon with polymer frame. It uses rotary barrel locking, with single lug at the top of the barrel that engages ejection window in the slide. Trigger is of double action only, striker fired; for each shot, striker is pre-cocked during opening movement of the slide, and then brought to full cock before release by the pull of the trigger. There are no manual safeties, and trigger is fitted with automated trigger safety (of rather uncomfortable shape). Sights are fixed. Magazines are double stack, and hold 15 rounds in "police" and 10 rounds in "private security" versions. The P-96S pistol is rather unpopular among private security personnel in Russia (which is authorized to carry weapons only in 9x17, and only under strict government regulations), as its ergonomics and reliability are inferior to 9x17 versions of Makarov PM pistol. The only positive sides of P-96S are its light weight and compact size. The "police" version of the same design languished for years, until the very recently, when it was brought back to local law enforcement market.
