Turkey Demonstrates DKM High Export Potential Sniper Rifle

29
In Turkey, they showed the first prototype of a fully local semi-automatic DKM sniper rifle from Dikmen Savunma Sanayi A.Ş.




The prototype, studies on which began in 2018, was designed by three engineers from the city of Kırıkkale, where a kind of military-industrial cluster operates. Upon completion of the tests, financial support will be received from the Organization for the Development of Small and Medium Enterprises (KOSGEB) for establishing mass production.

The effective range of a rifle weighing 6 kg is estimated at 1300 meters, and the maximum range at 3500 meters. The novelty is unified for equally convenient use by both right-handed and left-handed people, and is also designed, as the Turkish press proudly notes, for any climatic conditions - from desert to arctic. All this gives it good export potential, they are confident in Turkey.

The prototype was built as part of the program of the Turkish government, aimed at creating their own weapons, using only the national scientific and industrial base. It is believed that this will help get rid of Ankara's excessive dependence on foreign suppliers, relations with which, due to the geopolitical situation, are not always smooth.

      Design and development of a prototype DKM semi-automatic sniper rifle, which will be produced by Dikmen Savunma Sanayi A.Ş. The semi-automatic sniper rifle, which has a capacity of 5 + 1 rounds and uses ammunition of Lapua Magnum caliber 338, began research last year, has a number of high-energy capabilities.

      It is expected that a sniper rifle with a total length of 1300 millimeters, a barrel length of 710 millimeters, will have an effective range of 1300 meters and a maximum range of 3500 meters. The total weight of the rifle will be 6 kilograms, a gas piston with a movable locking mechanism for the rotary head and an adjustable gas unit allow the mechanism to work smoothly in various shooting conditions.

      Well, at least so that some would be able to think about where they could test the rifle in the Arctic at the declared distance. The first shot is cold, the second is warm, the third is hot, and these parameters strongly affect the final result. You are not interested, but those who are in the subject, very interesting. hi

        You're right. Overheating the barrel of a sniper rifle (not to be confused with the temperature of a machine gun) is very, very important. I would even say critical. And with a range, they clearly got excited. The energy of the bullet is enough that it is generally recognized (maybe the best sniper caliber), but the semi-automatic reloading system will underestimate the accuracy of the cartridge. But up to 800 meters a good cracker will be.

    Is the rifle secret, or is it a prototype, and can the characteristics still change?

    Yes, better SVD at 400-800 will not come up with anything better.

    I don’t see anything special in it request an ordinary 308-caliber semiautomatic device, unless a fashionable forend was glued and optics set. To be honest, in the army from M-1 I got into fiat 127 (if anyone remembers such a car) from 1200 m, without much effort, and I had the most usual optics M-84, from the Korean war yet ... winked only the cartridge was more powerful than the 308th 30-06 Springfield sniper cartridge

    Even the miserable Turks were able to create a new sniper. And we still have an ancient SVD.

      We have a lot of things. Under different systems and calibers. Take an interest in listing for a long time. And SVD is not at all bad in its class.

      Lobaev Arms and Orsis suggest google lol
      From semi-automatic in terms of price and quality, it is better not to find SVD anyway.
      and the maximum range is 3500 meters
      It seems to me that this is the maximum range where a bullet could theoretically fly.

          Thank you). I saw that the article is not complete and there is little information. I know Turkish, because I have a close language. I translated it from Turkish sources. If something is necessary, I can translate it.
