The self - loading hunting carbine OP SKS is made by modifying the used 7.62 self-loading Simonov carbine, as per criminalistic demands of Ministry of Home Affairs, the RF.
The carbine is intended for amateur and professional big game hunting.
A 7.62x39 hunting cartridge is used for shooting.
The best shooting results are achieved at the distance of up to 400 m.
Cartridges are fed from a non - detachable box magazine.
The reloading of carbine is carried out automatically with the help of the energy of powder gases which passes off from the barrel bore to the gas cylinder.
The locking of barrel bore is carried out when the bolt body edge sets against the stop while the locking lug of the bolt handle holds bolt body in such position so locking of the bolt carries out.
The firing- and trigger mechanism allows making single shots only.
The firing- and trigger mechanism is equipped with safety to avoid shots at accidental trigger pull.
