Yalguzag 7.62mm sniper rifle will enter in service with armed forces of Azerbaijan - Army Recognition

Azerbaijan will soon introduce local-produced “Yalguzag” 7.62mm sniper in the armament used by the armed forces of Azerbaijan, said a representative of the Azerbaijan defense industry at the 14th Defence Services Asia Exhibition and Conference DSA 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

7.62x51 NATO ammo is used in the sniper rifle. The weapon has already been tested.

“Yalguzag” successfully passed the tests. The sniper rifle is ready for practical use,” advisor of the Defense Industry Ministry Azad Mammadov said.

“Yalguzag” sniper rifle, which was for the first time showcased at the international defense exhibition in Turkey, drew the attention of foreign military people at DSA-2014.

The weapon operates in the principle of bolt action.

The rifle equipped with “piccatini resi” allows arming the weapon with additional optical devices. The weapon demonstrated at the exhibition was equipped with local-produced optical sight.

The butt of weapons is regulated in accordance with the anatomy of the arrow (hand and check).

The Clair Model 1893 Semi Automatic Pistol,
One of the first semi-automatic designs ever created, the Clair pistols was the creation of three brothers;  Benoit, Jean Baptiste, and Victor Clair.  Unlike most other handgun designs, the Clair pistol was unique in that it was gas operated, with the gas tube located below the barrel.  Most semi-auto handgun designs are recoil operated.  The Clair pistol used the standard French 8mm revolver cartridge (8x27R).  Before the widespread use of detachable magazines, this odd pistol had a fixed internal magazine which was loaded by inserting cartridges into the grip.  When fired a bit of gas from the discharge of the pistol would work a piston which worked the action, ejecting the spent casing while loading a new cartridge from the magazine.  At least that was how it was supposed to work.
The Clair brothers patented their design and built a prototype for military testing.  The Clair was tested against the French Mle 1892 revolver.  Unfortunately the Clair suffered from numerous problems, including failures to feed, jams, and leeks in the gas tube.  In addition the Clair design was too complicated for regular maintenance and mass production.  As a result the Clair pistol was rejected by the French Army.  Only one prototype was ever built. peashooter85:

ARAK-21 Gas-Piston Upper Receiver for AR-15 Lowers from Faxon Firearms
The ARAK-21 is a long-stroke gas-piston system that seems to borrow design features from both the AK and the AR designs. The piston system is simple, rugged, adjustable, and reliable. The gas regulator (adjuster) has four positions; three for functioning under various conditions, and another setting that shuts the gas off completely, rendering the weapon a manually-operated rifle. The ability to adjust the amount of gas used to operate the weapon allows it to function reliably if dry, dirty, using weak ammunition, or with a sound suppressor.
The ARAK-21 upper attaches easily atop a mil-spec AR-15 lower, using the pivot pin and the rear take-down pin, just as with any AR rifle. The ARAK-21 does not use the buffer tube spring to return the bolt carrier into battery. Instead, the ARAK has its own recoil spring contained in the upper receiver. This allows the weapon to use standard AR-15 buttsocks, no buttstock, or a hinged folding buttstock, offering a lot of versatility in weapon configuration.
The upper receiver of the ARAK-21 is machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum and incorporates a full-length 1913 Picatinny rail. The unit shown here is finished in a matte black, but more colorful versions are offered, if desired. The handguard/forearm also has sections of Picatinny rail positioned at three, six, and nine o’clock, and each of these rail sections are removable, if desired. The handguard/forearm is machined integrally with the receiver for exceptional strength and rigidity. The ambidextrous charging handle is located alongside the forward portion of the upper receiver, is spring loaded, and does not reciprocate with the bolt carrier. The handle can be easily switched from the left to the right side, if desired. The ARAK-21 upper can also be purchased in a left-hand version, and the bolt can be turned 180 degrees for LH ejection.
One interesting and useful feature of the ARAK-21 is that it is very easy to switch from 223/5.56mm to the 300 Blackout chambering just by switching the barrel unit. The barrels are button-rifled, and are offered in both medium and heavy profiles. Switching from one caliber to the other takes about two minutes, and the only tool required is an Allen (hex) wrench. Loosening six captured screws along the bottom of the forearm removes that section of forearm, and the barrel unit slides forward and off the weapon. Installing the extra barrel unit is just as easy, and the 300 Blackout uses the standard 5.56mm magazine, which is cheap and plentiful at this time. The 300 Blackout uses a different recoil spring as well, and switching the spring takes less than one minute, and requires no tools. The 4150 chrome-molly barrels are offered in lengths of 12.5, 16, and 20 inches. The 5.56mm and 300 Blackout barrels are threaded 1/2x28 and 5/8x24, respectively, for the attachment of suppressors or other muzzle devices. The barrels are supplied with the gas system and a muzzle brake installed. The 223/5.56 barrels are button-rifled with a one-in-seven-inch twist, and the 300 barrels have a one-in-eight-inch twist.

The handguard/forearm is machined integrally with the receiver for exceptional strength and rigidity. The ambidextrous charging handle is located alongside the forward portion of the upper receiver, is spring loaded, and does not reciprocate with the bolt carrier. The handle can be easily switched from the left to the right side, if desired. The ARAK-21 upper can also be purchased in a left-hand version, and the bolt can be turned 180 degrees for LH ejection.
One interesting and useful feature of the ARAK-21 is that it is very easy to switch from 223/5.56mm to the 300 Blackout chambering just by switching the barrel unit. The barrels are button-rifled, and are offered in both medium and heavy profiles. Switching from one caliber to the other takes about two minutes, and the only tool required is an Allen (hex) wrench. Loosening six captured screws along the bottom of the forearm removes that section of forearm, and the barrel unit slides forward and off the weapon. Installing the extra barrel unit is just as easy, and the 300 Blackout uses the standard 5.56mm magazine, which is cheap and plentiful at this time. The 300 Blackout uses a different recoil spring as well, and switching the spring takes less than one minute, and requires no tools. The 4150 chrome-molly barrels are offered in lengths of 12.5, 16, and 20 inches. The 5.56mm and 300 Blackout barrels are threaded 1/2x28 and 5/8x24, respectively, for the attachment of suppressors or other muzzle devices. The barrels are supplied with the gas system and a muzzle brake installed. The 223/5.56 barrels are button-rifled with a one-in-seven-inch twist, and the 300 barrels have a one-in-eight-inch twist. ARAK-21 Gas-Piston Upper Receiver for AR-15 Lowers from Faxon Firearms
The ARAK-21 is a long-stroke gas-piston system that seems to borrow design features from both the AK and the AR designs. The piston system is simple, rugged, adjustable, and reliable. The gas regulator (adjuster) has four positions; three for functioning under various conditions, and another setting that shuts the gas off completely, rendering the weapon a manually-operated rifle. The ability to adjust the amount of gas used to operate the weapon allows it to function reliably if dry, dirty, using weak ammunition, or with a sound suppressor.
The ARAK-21 upper attaches easily atop a mil-spec AR-15 lower, using the pivot pin and the rear take-down pin, just as with any AR rifle. The ARAK-21 does not use the buffer tube spring to return the bolt carrier into battery. Instead, the ARAK has its own recoil spring contained in the upper receiver. This allows the weapon to use standard AR-15 buttsocks, no buttstock, or a hinged folding buttstock, offering a lot of versatility in weapon configuration.
The upper receiver of the ARAK-21 is machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum and incorporates a full-length 1913 Picatinny rail. The unit shown here is finished in a matte black, but more colorful versions are offered, if desired. The handguard/forearm also has sections of Picatinny rail positioned at three, six, and nine o’clock, and each of these rail sections are removable, if desired.
