Fort-17R. Ukrainian Less Lethal (traumatic) pistol.8 July 2012
A less lethal pistol «PP-T» produced by «ERMA-INTER», is located in Kiev, UKRAINE. The «Erma PP-T» is a clone of the legendary «Walter PP» pistol. The gun fires rubber bullets packed in a 9mm P.A. case. A 9mm PA is non-lethal caliber with blanks, tear gas and rubber bullet loads. The rubber bullet pistols were developed by «ERMA-INTER» for shooting just rubber bullet ammunition, and it is impossible to use the normal ammunition without destroying the pistol.
The model «Erma PP-T» 9mm P.A. is specially made for active self-defense and home defense because the rubber bullets have a lower stopping power (muzzle energy of 35J & 50J). The use of gas and noise rounds is also possible with manual reload. The injurious effect is provoked by a pain shock of being hit with a rubber ball of 10.2 mm diameter and weight of 0.7 gram. The effective range is up to 7 meters. The aluminum frame, steel slide and parts of the firing mechanism, heavily loaded in shooting, make the pistol durable and extend its service life.
