Abstract

The present invention relates to a firearm shooting with an open breech and comprising a detent mechanism with a hammer block (5) that can block the forward movement of movable parts (2), a trigger (10) that can lift the hammer block (5) when the movable parts (2) move backwards, an action bar (12) that actuates the hammer block (5) and the trigger (10) when shooting is triggered and stopped, and a finger piece (13) linked to the action bar (12) by a disconnector (11) that can shift from a position in which the finger piece (13) is mechanically coupled to the action bar (12) to a position in which the finger piece (13) is mechanically uncoupled from the action bar (12), the action bar (12) shifting from a shooting position to a rest position when the disconnector (11) shifts from its coupling position to its uncoupling position so as to prevent the following shot from being fired if the finger piece (13) is maintained in the shooting position.

Abstract

Device for detecting and counting shots fired by an automatic or semi-automatic fire arm with a barrel and moving parts to recock the fire arm, sliding in the axial direction (Y-Y') of the barrel between a front position and a rear position, whereby the fire arm undergoes accelerations in the axial direction (Y-Y') of the barrel for every fired shot, caused by a succession of shocks due to the shot being fired and to the movements of the moving parts, whereby the progression in time of the accelerations is typical for a fire arm and for the type of ammunition used, thus forming a typical signature for the fire arm and for the type of ammunition, characterized in that it comprises an accelerometer (2) with a pass band which is sensitive to shocks in the axial direction (Y-Y') of the barrel and a microprocessor (3) for analyzing the signal (S) of the accelerometer (2) while firing, whereby the microprocessor (3) is equipped with an algorithm to count the number of shots fired, based on the discernment and recording of a shot being fired on the basis of the detection, in the signal of the accelerometer, of all or part of the characteristic elements of the acceleration signature which is typical of the type of fire arm and of the different types of ammunition used, whereby these characteristic elements are recorded beforehand in a memory (4) of the device.
