Russian Firm Begins Development of New Collimator Sight

Russia’s Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering (TsNIITOCHMASH) is developing a new collimator sight to be equipped on submachine guns, machine guns, carbines and machine guns.

“The main advantages of the collimator sight being developed by the institute's designers are the presence of a monolithic body without additional adapters and screws, a quick-release mechanism based on an eccentric, a continuous operation time of about 30 thousand hours, the ability to use two types of power supply (AA or CR123), an original alignment mechanism; hermetically sealed hull and alignment mechanism assemblies,” said Vadim Malinnikov, head of the small arms development department at TsNIItochmash.

“The use of collimator equipment will expand the tactical capabilities of small arms and increase their combat effectiveness,” stressed Vadim Malinnikov.
