Saiga SR1 Semi-Automatic Rifle Chambered In 5.56x45mm/.223 Remington

This is a unique “balanced action”, it is specifically designed for maximum performance during practical shooting matches (IPSC, 3-Gun) and merges decades of advanced small arms development and practical experiences of top Russian IPSC shooters.
In all these disciplines, speed and accuracy are of equal importance, and the Kalashnikov SR1 (Sport Rifle, model 1) is intended to provide shooters with a weapon that allows for very fast recovery from recoil of each shot, allowing for fast and accurate double-taps or longer strings of rapid and precise semi-automatic fire.

The Kalashnikov SR1 is a semi-automatic gas operated rifle with recoil-mitigating balanced action. This means that rifle features two gas pistons, entering single gas block above the barrel from opposite directions. The rear gas piston is attached to the bolt carrier group. The forward gas piston (which moves opposite to the rear one) is attached to a sliding counterweight, located above the bolt carrier group. Both counter-recoiling masses are synchronized by a pair of rotating gears, so after each discharge rearward and forward movement of the bolt group is balanced by a counter-moving mass attached to the forward gas piston, effectively canceling impulses generated by heavy reciprocating parts. As a result, rifle generates less felt recoil and is much easier to hold on target in rapid fire.
