Man-portable nordenfelt gun of the soviet era that apparently 'fired like a minigun' by combining the ROF but to be suitable for a soldier to handle. It uses the 7.62x39 round but the ammo supply was limited as the weapon is magazine fed.

The Pribor-3B still worked but was also quite hard to control due to the recoil force, Cartridge ejection is downwards BEHIND the magazine area as the weapon uses a gas/recoil operaton similar to that used in the AN94 Abakan assault rifle currently used by Russian special forces. Another variant of the Pribor-3B was made from AKM smilar parts to ease production. The Pribor-3B would be more practical as a tripod mounted machine gun if its possible to make a belt feed device for it.

1st one of those i ave ever seen. Man i'd hate to have to lug it around all day as i'm guessing its a bit heavy. Bet carrying spare mags was a pain also. Still an interesting concept though.

Thanks for sharing this piece of history.
