Abstract

The invention relates to a rotary lug breech comprising: a breech carrier (1); a breach head (100) mounted therein and comprising a plurality of breech lugs (104); and a locking piece (200) comprising a plurality of locking lugs (204). A rearward facing cam section (208) is formed in the locking piece (200) on a locking lug (204). When the breech head (100) is released, said cam section converts a release motion, during which rear end faces (106) of the breech lugs (104) detach from front end faces (206) of the locking lugs (204), by means of a forward facing control section (132) correspondingly formed on a control breech lug (104h') into a screwing motion of the breech head (100) in order to release a cartridge case retained in the breech head (100) from a cartridge chamber, during which screwing motion the control section (132) is supported on the cam section (208). During locking, the cam section performs a pre-control function, which rotates a control pin (102) in a control gate (60) of the breech carrier (1) from an axial stop (70) into a control position in which the control gate (60) engages at a locking edge (62) with the control pin (102) and, when the breech carrier (1) moves forward relative to the breech head (100), exerts a rotary momentum on the breech head (100) and thus converts a linear feed motion of the breech head into a locking motion by means of screwing motion.

Abstract

The invention relates to a catch (21), especially for a triggering mechanism of a rapid fire weapon that comprises a breechblock (3) and a securing device (40; 140). The catch (21) can be moved between a position blocking the breechblock (3) and a position not blocking the breechblock and is fitted with a securing element (101; 201; 301). Said securing element (101; 201; 301) can be moved relative to the catch (21) between a releasing position (II) and a securing position (I) and adopts the releasing position (II) as the returning breechblock (3) engages with the catch (21) and actuates the securing element (101; 201; 301) in a rearward direction; said element does not engage with the securing device (40) in this position (II) even when the securing device (40) is simultaneously in the securing position. The catch (21) can then be moved into the non-blocking position. Alternatively or additionally, the securing element (101; 201; 301) adopts the securing position (1) as the breechblock (3) runs onto the securing element (101; 201; 301) and actuates the latter (101; 201; 301) in a forward direction, said element engaging with the securing device (40) in said position (1) when the securing device (40) is simultaneously in the securing position and blocking the catch (21) in the blocking position. The invention further relates to a triggering mechanism, a handle piece (1), and a weapon comprising such a catch (21) according to the invention.

Abstract

The present invention relates to a pivotal latch (21) for a trigger device of a firearm, particularly a rapid-fire weapon, comprising a breech (3) and a safety mechanism (40). The pivotal latch (21) is displaceable between a locking position locking the breech (3) and a position not locking the breech, and comprises a safety element (101; 201) that is displaceable relative to the pivot latch (21) between an idle position (II) and a safety position (I). Said element assumes the safety position (I) when the breech (3) pushes against the pivot latch (21) if the breech (3) exerts an actuating force on the safety element (101; 201) in the forward direction. In said position (I), the element engages on the safety mechanism (40) if said safety mechanism assumes the safety position thereof at the same time and fixes the pivotal latch (21) itself in the locking position. Otherwise, however, the safety element assumes the rest position (II) and releases the pivotal latch (21). The invention further relates to a trigger device, a grip having such a trigger device, and a corresponding firearm.

Abstract

The present invention relates to a safety mechanism (20) for a latch (2) of a trigger device of a weapon, particularly an automatic weapon, comprising a breech and a safety mechanism (6, 8, 8a). The latch (2) can be moved between a locking position, locking the breech, and a non-locking position, not locking the breech. The safety mechanism (20) engages on the safety device (6, 8, 8a) when it is in the safety position, and thus secures the latch (2) in the locking position. The safety mechanism (20) comprises a spring element (23c) acting between the safety device (6, 8, 8a) and the latch (2), effecting a locking force that fixes the latch (2) in the locking position thereof, said force being adjusted such that it is greater than a trigger force that moves the latch (2) out of a locking position, but allows for a deflection of the latch (2) under the action of the returning breech while deforming the spring element. The invention further relates to a trigger mechanism, a hand piece (1), and a weapon with such a safety mechanism (20).

Abstract

The invention relates to a control element (50) for a hammer (3) that can be pivoted about a pivoting axis (7). The hammer can be locked in the loaded position with a counter-surface (29) of a release element (30, 31) by means of a detent surface (27). The hammer (3) has a control curve section (23), which, in a pivoting position that differs from the loaded position, engages with a control surface (32) of the release element (30, 31), holding the latter in an unlocked position. The control element (50) has a first control curve region (54), which is adjacent to the control curve section (23) and can be adjusted in the pivoting direction to expand said section and which engages with the control surface (32) in order to reduce the required pivoting space of the control curve section (23) and the control curve region (54) when the hammer (3) is moved from a firing position into the loaded position. The invention also relates to a firing unit comprising a control element (50) of this type in addition to an interchangeable firing assembly (1) comprising a hammer (3) and a trigger assembly that has a trigger bar (31), a detent surface (27), which acts by means of an elongated lever arm in relation to the pivoting axis (7), being located on the hammer (3). Said firing assembly (1) is compatible with an existing firing unit and is designed to be interchanged with the latter, the control curve (C) of the assembly having the same or less required pivoting space. The curve is traced by a hammer (A) of the firing assembly, said hammer having a detent surface (B) with a shorter lever arm acting in relation to the pivoting axis.

Abstract

The present invention relates to a weapon having a firing breech system (6) which has a breech head (17) with a firing bolt (26), and having a trigger mechanism (8). The firing bolt (26) can move relative to the breech head (17). The trigger mechanism (8) has a hammer (28) which can be moved between two hammer positions, is cocked in the first hammer position, and strikes the firing bolt (26) in the second hammer position, in order to initiate a shot. This improves the safety against inadvertent shot initiation in the case of firing breech systems. A shot can be emitted only when the trigger (30) is deliberately operated, so only then is the hammer (28) released.
