Today we have a new weapon in our arsenal — the legendary SKS-45. This is a semi-automatic carbine by Sergey Simonov. It was specially made in 1943 for an 7.62х39 experimental cartridge. We associate SKS with the weapons of the Great Patriotic War though it wasn't often used by the forces. The first samples were presented for testing in 1944 and received the most positive marks. It took some time to create a cartridge. The weapon was finally adopted in 1949. Until the late 1980-s the SKS was used by some branches of the armed forces, and today, thanks to its aesthetics, it is used as a ceremonial weapon during parades. The armed forces of 40 countries used the weapon.15 million copies were produced.
We have tried to integrate electronics in a weapon that shoots with blank cartridges. It is ready to become part of authentic weapons lovers' collection and to participate in future laser tag battles.
The smell of rifle grease, feeling of the weight, warmth from the wooden buttstock, shutter clanging — you have touched the story. Air soft models don't have a chance... Mass dimensional weapons are what real fans have been looking for. 4 kg of weight will make your game even more colorful. When integrating electronics we tried to save the original design. Apart from the optical tube, the weapon looks real. The carabine is small and relatively light. The range is up to 200 meters. The weapon will bring you many positive emotions. The weapon is very durable. We strongly recommend it for rental clubs.
