The sight makes it possible to launch grenades along flat or curved trajectories.
The GP-34 fires VOG-25 or VOG-25M fragmentation grenades, VOG-25P or VOG-25PM fragmentation bounding grenades, and VDG-25 smoke grenades.
The unused round can be withdrawn from the launcher with an extractor.
The GP-34 features the following advantages:
It is designed and tested specifically for the Kalashnikov assault rifles, fits such assault rifles directly without any adaptors or forearm dismantling.
The GP-34 is 100% failure-free thanks to improved firing mechanism.
The design prevents a round from moving within or falling out of the barrel, even if the muzzle looks down.
The GP-34 features an additional mechanism (firing pin safety lever) to improve safety during loading.
Improved sight, better accuracy.
Improved extractor - for easier extraction of an unused round under stringent conditions.
