Silverback presents the new PP-19 Bizon.
The PP-19 Bizon ("Bison") is a 9mm submachine gun developed in the early 1990s at Izhmash by a team of engineers headed by Victor Kalashnikov (son of famed AK-47 designer Mikhail Kalashnikov).
One of the Bizon's more unusual features is the magazine, which is often confused for a grenade launcher. The cylinder below the barrel is in fact a 64-round helical-feed magazine, similar to the type used in the American Calico M960 submachine gun. On this airsoft version, it is a 160 round mid-cap that doesn't require winding.
This layout makes the weapon more compact and concealable. All cartridges are aligned nose forward in the Bizon magazine and cannot be loaded incorrectly.
The sighting arrangement resembles that used on the AKS-74U and consists of a rear flip-up sight permanently attached to the receiver top cover with two open square notches with 50 and 100 m elevation settings and a round post front sight taken from the AK series of rifles, common to many Russian small arms. The front sight is contained in a protective hood with a hole in the top to insert an elevation adjustment tool, while the rear sight is shielded by two metal ears.
- FULL STEEL components on the gun! There are no Zinc alloy parts!
- V3 gearbox with 7mm ball bearing.
- Nylon fiber midcap magazine, 160 rounds. No winding necessary. Spare magazines available separately.
- Skeleton steel stock.
- Realistic side rail size, that fits real Russian optics.
Considering this gun is made entirely of steel (apart from the plastic grips, foregrip and magazine), the price is frankly a steal! No pun intended!
