The continuation of a collection of rare horizontalor from Izhevsk 1940-ies with locks on the side plates. Izhevsk a shotgun 1930-ies examined by me in previous numbers of «« HORN ».
The recovery of the economic climate throughout the 2nd half of 1940-ies, consisting of the production of consumer goods, has actually affected the manufacturing and also searching tools.
The first time for the base took on the old pre-war designs, therefore lowering the expense of preparation modern technology.
In 1946, has launched horizontally IZH-B-46 with locks on the side plates, which became the basis of a little range production dual barrel shotgun IZH-B-36 with comparable impact mechanisms on side plates.
In the noting of a brand-new version shows the production year.
It is believed that as a whole the shotgun IZH-B-46 repeated the gadget of the last sample IL-B-36,
although it truly is partially modified. Customized electronic marking is introduced, to highlight the new post-war phase of the manufacture of hunting weapons, which held the orderly healing of the weapons production plant of Izhmekh.
The old designation of «« IL-B » maintained in commemoration of the succession of models, where the letter «« B » indicates, as in the past, «« a ». Room the IZH-B-46 as well as the year of issue was shown by marks on the pillow block shafts.
In horizontale IZH-B-46 fight springtime percussion systems of previous layouts, duperie U-shaped.
In the new sample right into account talk about the layout of previous designs, it had a smooth descent shock devices when shutting the barrel block.
Produced the just double barrel 16 scale with a barrel block with a size of 700 mm as well as was provided made of walnut timber box with a neck of generally gun form. It considered regarding 3.2 kg and also the mass of the barrel block has actually reached 1.6 kg.
With these parameters, it benefits a balanced mass budget shotgun: the center of gravity of the gun without bullets and the ring was at a range of about 65 mm onward from the breech of a slice of a barrel block.
Trunks design IL-B-46 16-gauge with a round exploration the right of the barrel and also muzzle constricting Chok left barrel offered the following figures of the fight shot: the appropriate barrel is not much less than 35 percent and the left is not less than 55 percent.
This was in line with the requirements of mass production guns of the 16th calibre. On some specimens the left barrel had a muzzle contraction «« pauchok » and gave matching accuracy scree shot.
Being in great problem, shotgun IZH-B-46 is very extremely concerned by fans of residential hunting weapons. Released them a little bit, now there are also much less on the secondary market they do not stay.
A gun showed up in the Moscow Commission trade, will certainly pick it up swiftly, fans are not interrupted by either one more city or distance. Walnut Lodge, certainly, discolor with time and the transformation of the climate, however cleaning natural linseed oil recovers the initial wood pattern.
Start of production of the IZH-B-46, as the first post-war sample, permitted not only to convey the seekers of the party’s domestic production of shotguns, but also to show perspectives of advancement of searching tools in the hard duration of
recuperation of the economic climate. This is the main significance, in spite of a particular heaviness of layout and modest inscription.
Version IZH-B-46 pretty strong and also can hold up against different metamorphoses in the search, so on the secondary market show up well-preserved specimens. Its the only quality she might not satisfy the hunters who need mass weapons of various qualities.
Once presented into production in 1947, the shotgun IZH-B-47 a comparable design to the locks on the side plates has a vast array of qualities and also is a version typical for the initial half of the twentieth century.
The pillow block of trunks birth the mark of the arrow in a hexagonal framework. Securing the barrel block in the block triple, consisting of the leading cross-bolt system Greener as well as lower dual structure system Purdey.
The automated safety and security catch locks the trigger hooks. There is an opportunity unstressed smooth descent Kurkov. Given production samples IZH-B-47 different calibers, including the 12th, 16th as well as 20th, though it should be kept in mind that circumstances little 20-gauge on the market practically did not satisfy.
Photo 1 reveals a double-barrel IZH-B-47 16-gauge 1949 version.
Style flat IZH-B-47 modified contrasted to previous similar Izhevsk shotgun, as an example, to stay clear of misfires boosted the amplitude of movement of the hammer when struck by the firing pin, reinforced as well as mainspring.
Enlarged and a little chopped at the rear of the lock plate front toe is repaired in a side groove pad under the cushion as well as fastened on the last screw.
Between the locking plate cross screw pulled to the rear. Pin tips cocking drawn out on side plates and protected rounded lugs, as seen in picture 2.
On the weapon IZH-B-47 set blocks stems mainly length 700 mm, manufactured from Izhevsk steel quality 50A. Thus, an example of 12-gauge evaluated approximately kg. 3,27 the Trunks of larger quality resulted in the reality that the center of gravity of the IZH-B-47 12-gauge Assembly has changed even more away from the flap of the pads.
The balance of the gun transformed except the better, but the seekers endured it, as the serial residential weapons in that duration was not nearly enough. The trunks 12-gauge had a size of 18.2 mm channels, rather slim, however within the acceptable values for this quality.
Muzzle narrowing «« of pauchok » right barrel and «« chalk » the left is permitted to get a routine gun available groups indicators of the fight shot: respectively 47 and 57 percent.
Approximately the same numbers of the battle provided the gun IZH-B-47 and the 16-gauge, checked the cartridges geared up in fraction projectile No. 5. It is necessary that the «« Passport » of this design suggested the variety of drobin in the projectile — — 200 pieces, which allows you to examine the actual efficiency of the battle shot.
The barrels of such weapons with chokes «« poluchat — chalk» » provided the accuracy of the battle 46 as well as 60 percent, specifically, 92 as well as 120 drobin. In the end the design ended up with sufficient chances for searching.
Generated flat IZH-B-47 until 1950, the cushion block shafts stated just the year of manufacture, unlike previous versions, where more detail was stamped with day of manufacture, including year as well as month of problem.
The cushion block shafts showed the identification number, caliber numbers in the ruby, the size as well as length of screws to 70.1 mm as a portion, as well as the length of the chamber exact to 0.1 mm. Marked as a portion and also diameters of the barrel and muzzle constricting in mm, as an example, the stigma of «« 16,8/ 16,0 » shotgun of the 16th caliber.
Shotgun IZH-B-47 was tested in quite extreme problems, for which the cartridges were placed at an enhanced charge of smoke or smokeless gunpowder, as an example, for guns of 12 quality with a fee of smokeless powder weighing 3.2 g, 16-gauge with a mass of 3.0 g as well as 20-gauge weight is 2.8 g.
The mass of the projectile portion is nearly constant with the small value of, for example, for a 12 gauge 34 g, 16-gauge 32 g as well as 20-gauge 25 g. it is Obvious that the test cartridges developed high blood pressure.
After that put an equivalent mark in the letter «« U » in a trapezoidal frame, and also examination of electric powder is marked with the mark «« Nitro » on the cushions trunks. Permitted working stress 700 kg/cm2 was stated in the «« Passport » of the gun.
The mass of the projectiles of shot and gunpowder test cartridges cite to existing seekers had the ability to correctly examine their very own equippable ammo.
Embellished with a double-barrel IZH-B-47-style Izhevsk mass models are rather small, as seen in picture 3. Engraved stylized ornament decorated the shapes of the breech trunks, pads as well as securing plates. And also the securing plate is trimmed with a basic pattern.
The bed with the neck directly, handgun or poliestireno forms, there is a step under his cheek on a number of circumstances. Walnut wood is typically a moderate out broad-zoned varieties. Little nick on the neck and also lower arm well brings out the appearance of the nut.
On our secondary market horizontale IZH-B-47 is discovered extremely rarely, it is an absolute rarity as well as a topic of relentless search collection agencies residential searching tools, despite the roughness of forms and the sleek decor.
Shotgun IZH-B-47 a few, as previously, and also currently. However so I completed a collection of mass Izhevsk horizontalor the second quarter of the twentieth century with locks on the side plates, it is highly preferred seekers.
