R-92 revolver 9mm

The 9 mm R-92 revolvers are produced by the KBP Instrument Design Bureau at Tula, with development carried out for the Scientific Research Institute for Special Equipment for the MVD (NIIST). They were developed to produce a conceal-carry, instant readiness revolver for Russia's internal security forces. The overall design is light and compact, with the swing-out cylinder holding five 9 × 18 mm Makarov (57-N-151S) cartridges or, as an option, five 9 x 17 mm Short (0.380 ACP) cartridges. The cylinder can be loaded either one round at a time or using a five-round clip. In both instances all five spent cases are ejected simultaneously. Firing is normally double action, although it is possible to actuate the semi-enclosed hammer for single-action operation. Sighting range is limited to 25 m. To assist concealment, the foresight is small and rudimentary and the rearsight is limited to a groove along the top of the frame.
