A firearm having a top surface to which an optical sight is to be attached having a first portion and an adjacent second portion stepped down from the first portion. An adaptor plate is received in the second portion, its shape corresponding to the second portion to properly orient the adaptor plate. The bottom of the second portion and the underside of the adaptor plate having features to receive a spring. An optical sight is attached with at least one fastener to the first portion and directly to the slide of the pistol with a part of the optical sight cantilevered over the second portion and on the adaptor plate. The upper surface of the adaptor plate has a topography that corresponds to a complimentary topography on the underside of that portion of the optical sight.
The present invention relates to a cartridge box comprising: - a box (1) comprising an intake (5) and an outlet (6), the outlet (6) being placed under the intake (5) and separated from same by a guide roller (3); - a plurality of compartments (9) separated by partitions (2); - a belt (7) of cartridges (8), said cartridge belt crossing the intake (5), then folding into the compartments (9), from the compartment (9) closest to the intake (5) to the compartment that is furthest away, and then crossing the outlet (6), above the guide roller (3).
Automatic firearm with firing mode selector (6) to change the firing mode from automatic firing mode to semi--automatic firing mode, wherein the firearm (1) is equipped with a firing mechanism (11) with selection control (37) which enables the firearm (1) to function in closed bolt firing mode or open bolt firing mode, and in automatic firing mode as well as semi-automatic firing mode.
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.
Improved "moving red dot" sighting device, characterized in that it comprises a fixed light source (4) and a reflecting blade (17), whereby the light source (4) produces a collimated light beam (5) which is projected onto the reflecting blade (17) so as to obtain a red dot or reticle which is visible to the shooter thanks to the reflection on the reflecting blade (17), whereby the beam (5) is projected onto the reflecting blade (17) by means of a rotating mirror (9) whose inclination angle (B) in relation to the light beam (5) can be adjusted.
Improved device for the remote control of a fire arm, which comprises a turret head (3) which can be pointed in all directions, controlled by an azimuth motor (5); a frame (7) for fixing the fire arm (2) which is suspended in an upward tilting manner in a pintle (6) which is part of said turret head (3); a sighting camera (15) connected to a screen (20) displaying a sighting reticule (22); a single elevation motor (13) to control the elevation of the frame (7) and the camera (15); a remote control (23) to control the azimuth motor (5) and the elevation motor (13); one or several sensors (28,29,30) to determine the orientation of the frame (7) and/or of the camera (15) and a ballistic calculator (26) connected to said sensors (28,29,30) to calculate and control the super elevation of the frame (7) as a function of the information from the sensors and the distance of the target (21), characterized in that the camera (15) is driven by the above-mentioned elevation motor (13) and in that the frame (7) can be inclined in elevation in relation to the camera (15), whereby said frame (7) is driven by the elevation motor (13) via a super elevation jack (18) placed between the frame (7) and the elevation motor (13), whereby the super elevation of the frame (7) is controlled by the elongation of said jack (18), calculated by the ballistic calculator (26).
