9-mm hunting rifle Tiger-9, purpose, modifications, characteristics, device, design features, overview.
In the second half of the last century, gunsmiths took up the transformation of military small arms into models for hunting and sports. The main reason for this was the fact that in many countries of the world impressive reserves of physically and morally obsolete military weapons were accumulated. In addition, the presence in the warehouses of a large number of cheap cartridges for these samples played a role in this process..
The first to draw attention to the possibility of converting military small arms into civilian weapons, and then firms in Russia, the USA and Germany took leading positions in this matter. In Russia, the conversion of shooting systems is carried out by such enterprises as JSC Izhmash, JSC TOZ, a branch of JSC KBP-TsKIB SOO and others.
Significant interest among amateur hunters and professionals and collectors-gunsmiths is caused by rework images of Izhmash JSC, including hunting carbines of the Tiger model range:

The principle of operation of the automation of hunting rifles Tiger-9.
The automation of the Tiger-9 carbine is based on the use of the energy of the powder gases discharged when firing from the barrel channel into the gas chamber, and the energy of the return springs. The barrel channel is locked by three combat stops by turning the bolt around its axis under the influence of a longitudinally sliding bolt frame. This weapon constructively excludes the possibility of a shot with incomplete locking of the barrel.
When the fuse is turned on, the trigger is locked and it is impossible to pull the bolt frame back. When shooting, when the cartridges in the store are used up, the bolt frame with the shutter locks in the back position of the shutter skeleton, simultaneously signaling the absence of cartridges. The trigger type trigger mechanism provides for the production of single shots and firing, detachable trigger.
