|Russian firearms manufacturer Tochmash has developed modular pistol with new lock mechanism.|
Russia's Arsenal plant has developed a modular pistol with a new lock mechanism. The plant's director Dmitriy Streshinskiy told Izvestiya that by using a removable barrel the selfsame pistol can turn into a gun of four different calibers, while an extended barrel turns the "Strayk" into a carbine capable of aimed fire at 200 meters. However, at the Central Research Institute of Precision Machine Building, which certifies firearms, they say that they are not yet familiar with this development.

"If it really enables you to hit a matchbox at 200 meters, it is a very good pistol. But this is hard to believe. We have not yet seen it or tested it," Tochmash General Director Vladimir Ivanov explained to Izvestiya.
