The first batch of guns “Boa” delivered by Russian servicemen. This was announced by Director General of Central scientific-research Institute of precise mechanical engineering (TSNIITOCHMASH) albert Tanks, RIA Novosti reported.
“There is a experienced military operation,” — said Tanks.
The gun was developed under the cartridge 9х21 of a millimeter and is intended to replace the PM, put into service in 1951. The weapon passed state tests and was recommended for adoption. Later the interdepartmental Commission made a “Boa” for serial production.
In Russia, several attempts to replace the PM in the Armed forces, however, all new items, in particular, a TT pistol and a pistol Serdyukov, did not become massively used in the army.
