Deadly The Skorpion vz. 61

Army and Weapons | Deadly The Skorpion vz. 61 | The Skorpion vz. 61 is an automatic submachine Czechoslovak developed in the 1960s by Miroslav Rybář and produced under the official name Samopal vzor 61 (SMG model 1961) by the arms factory Ceska Zbrojovka in Uherský Brod. While developed to be used by security forces, the submachine gun was also accepted to serve in the Czechoslovak Army as a weapon auxiliary sub-officers, vehicle drivers, crews of armored vehicles and special forces. SMG is currently employed by the armed forces of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Angola, Croatia, Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Mozambique and Uganda.  
The rights of Production of the submachine gun were also purchased by the Yugoslav arms factory Crvena Zastava (now Zastava Arms), which manufactured the weapon during the 80 as the M84. Your pistol has plastic grips, compared to the original version (also produced a semi-automatic civilian version, known as M84A and available in caliber 9 x 17).
The Skorpion uses the 7.65 x 17 cartridge Browning (.32 ACP), which was the standard cartridge Czechoslovak security forces. It is a selective fire weapon of mass inertia-driven and that fires closed bolt. Your cartridge produces a very low recoil, which allows the use of the mechanism of inertia, there is no delay mechanism and the cartridge is held only by the inertia of the bolt and the strength of the recoil spring. When fired, the pressure pushes the cap into the chamber against the resistance exerted by the weight of the bolt and two recoil spring. The bolt back, removing the cap, which in turn is ejected upward through a hatch on the top cover of the receiver. Skorpion's compact dimensions were obtained by using a telescopic bolt, which covers a considerable portion of the canyon. The gun has a spring-powered extractor, installed inside the bolt head and a fixed double ejector, which is a highlight of the receiver.
Since the bolt is relatively lightweight, the Skorpion cadence uses inertial reducer (located inside the wooden pistol grip) to reduce the rate of fire of 1000 rounds per minute to a more controllable than 850 rounds per minute. Cadence reducer operates as follows: when the bolt reaches the limit of their retreat, hit a spring-loaded hook mounted on the back of the receiver and is trapped by it. At the same time, drives a spring-loaded plunger light inside the pistol. The piston accelerates and passes easily through a heavy counterweight that is left behind due to inertia. By compressing the spring, the plunger back up and passed back through the counterweight. This reduces the speed of the plunger when the end of its run, turn the hook and release the lock, which is IMPlus forward with its shock-absorbing recoil.
The submachine gun is fired by a hammer and has a trigger mechanism with a selector, whose lever (installed on the left side of the receiver on the pistol) has 3 modes: "0"-weapon secured, "1"-fire semiautomatic and "20"-automatic fire. The "safe" mode turns off the trigger and blocks the bolt in its forward position (by pushing the retainer latch up) .2
The Skorpion employs two types of chargers curved double row, one short of 10 rounds (0.15 kg, full) or one of 20 rounds (0.25 kg, full). The bolt remains open after firing the last cartridge from the magazine and can be closed by simply pulling the charging handle back slightly. The Skorpion is equipped with mechanical view of the open type (adjustable spotlight with ranges upwards of 75 to 150 meters) and a folding stock steel wire, which folds up and over the receiver, being determined by the protective lugs focus.
The Skorpion, along with a short magazine, is carried as a conventional gun in a leather case, while two large carriers are taken on a separate charger holder. The gun comes with a cleaning kit, tool for adjusting the focus, oil and gun belt holder. It can also be equipped with a silencer.
During the 60's, were developed in three variants of the Skorpion Czechoslovakia: the vz. 64 (calibrated to the cartridge 9 x 18 Makarov), the vz. 65 (designed to use the cartridge 9 x 17 and vz. 68 (9 gauge x 19), although not carried out the production of these. In 90, Česká Zbrojovka submachine offered the following: the vz. 61 E (7.65 x 17 caliber version with plastic handles), the vz. 82 (calibrated to 9 x 18 Makarov cartridges and a 113 mm cannon) and vz. 83 (cartridge 9 x 17). It was also developed a semiautomatic version for the civilian market called CZ-91S, available in calibers mentioned. The subsufiles vz. 82, vz. CZ-91S 83 and 9 mm, using straight boots.
