    A great museum in a Hero City of the Soviet Union. Tula was never captured by the Germans.

    Can somebody fill me in on the type of rifles in the picture 14th from the bottom. I’ve never seen such a beast.

      They are TKB-011 2m and TKB-022PM experimental bullpup design guns.The TKB-022 was first rifle to use tunnel ejection port also.
      They were chambered with 7.62x39mm and 5.6x39mm ammo.
      There was also a TKB-059 , which fires from 3 barrels independently fed by a single magazine.
      Also chambered in 7.62×39 mm

      • Arsenic says:

        Above mentioned guns were contesters in a trial alongside the Kalashnikov AK design in 1946 trials for soviet army.
        I personally prefer the TKB-022 in design.It is a beatiful design fit for a true weapons enthousiast.

        Guess which one won?

    At 13 from below photo bulp-up weapon with oversized magazine looks funny. Wooden bulp-up looks really strange.

    I am an English arms collector and for many years wanted to visit the Tula Kremlin museum. Let me say it was well worth the journey and an absolute joy for any gun enthusiast, Russians are superb on museums and galleries and are to be commended for such quality in exhibits and way that they are displayed.
