Russian shooter hit a target at 2 km in complete darkness

Russian shooter Sergei Shmakov hit a target at a distance of almost two kilometers in complete darkness. Shooting was carried out from a SVLK-14 "Twilight" sniper rifle.


Reportedly, Shmakov laid five .408 CheyTac (10,3 mm) caliber bullets in an 60 target at 60 centimeters at a distance of 1920 meters, thereby setting a new world record. For firing, he used the SVLK-14 "Twilight" Russian sniper rifle with the Daedalus NV domestic passive night sight mounted on it.

We want to set a record for a maximum range shot at night, without any backlighting. That is, it is not an active sight, it is a passive sight, it is not intended to illuminate the target with either a laser or other light sources, that is, it is in absolutely real night conditions

- the creator of the rifle, designer Vladislav Lobaev, told Russia Today.

Earlier, using the same SVLK-14 "Twilight" rifle, a world record was set for the range of an accurate shot. In October 2017, the Russian shooter Andrei Ryabinsky hit a meter-by-meter target at a range of 4210 meters.

The SVLK-14С "Twilight" rifle was developed by Lobaev Arms.

        Greetings!
        I think that the shooting module, remote with under the programs, one FIG did not beat.
        Here it is important how many pre-shootings were and the go-ahead barrel warmed up, so that the goal would be scored for 2 km.

            I wonder how much "in combat conditions" will there be a bright flash of powder gases from a shot? In the dark of the night.
            This rifle has no flash suppressor as standard, it has a "T-Tuner" muzzle brake. And if you change it to a flame arrester, the recoil will be strong and the accuracy will decrease.

          Then, please, give an analog. request The only American long-range sniper rifle of the same class, the M200 Intervention, comes to my mind. Only they have a "small" difference, the American rifle shoots with an error of slightly more than one arc minute, and "Twilight" - 0.2 - 0.3 arc minutes! good There is a difference?

          If I’m not mistaken, then all Lobaev’s rifles are manufactured using imported high-precision equipment and barrels for barrels were also ordered abroad.

        This record helped them to establish not a rifle but a 3+ sight, judging by the size, non-acidic magnification.
        Day shooting at 2 km is not a joke, but you won’t surprise anyone like that. So the news is about the sight.

        Let me explain. Night scopes have a common technical problem. They are all of extremely low multiplicity. Usually they are 2,5-4,5 krat. This is not just small, but monstrously small for a distance of even 300m. It is possible to get into what you cannot see, but all this is from the evil one, so all athletes who shoot "far away" have telescopes that mum do not worry, there are pipes up to half a meter.
        So, the problem of high multiplicity on nightlights is that it is extremely difficult for them to catch the focus, and you need to fine-tune such optics by twisting the lens very often and very subtly.
        And I'm 146% sure that the image intensifier tube is not ours there. In such sizes and domestic 3+, I do not believe it.

        So this record is solely due to Daedalus.

          I came across when they worked for us from a good distance from the other side. It’s stupid, but it’s unnerving. This is unpleasant. You start to twitch. And he got when we were supported by a very good shooter from the SOBR. It was he who drove the machine gunner. We could not get it. But he worked from SVD. Accordingly, it was next to it. And of course, they also actively tried to knock him out. If he had such a balalaika - it would be easier for him and us.

            Their machine gun was in the window, 40 centimeters above my head. I could not do anything. I was pressed tightly on the side. The one above that worked out our shooter from the oar. Only he was busy for a long time, they tried to extinguish him. If there was ZUShka, at your suggestion, I would stay there myself. There would be no SVD, but such a balalaika, our shooter would work from a distance beyond their reach, and we would walk along the avenue.
            And when you stomp onto the exit, ZUShku, on the pink top, it’s not quite handy to shove.

              We, too, were most afraid of these toys. Seeing how our anti-aircraft gunners lappish with them. Like barely lifting boxes (on both sides) with minimal confusion, the shooter suddenly flies away. You understand that the sniper is clearly not you ...))) Here I am talking about that, this heavy balalaika will not take you far to the mountains with you, but if not far, you will support your own. There are no miracles. Spit in the hands of Barrett semi-automatic of the very .50 BMG. Do not drag it especially. If not a pedestrian, then yes a good thing.

                variability. As for the tasks that we were solving - a shooter with a large-caliber, long-range rifle, just right. Because most often they worked in full autonomy. And the caliber is needed rather not even 10 mm., But 12, or even 14,5. As for "you won't drag", so ours, on the exits wore SVD and VSS. Of course, the weight was distributed among everyone.

    And Lobaev well done and shooter what you need.
    And the second set of sensations.
    He fired from a piece of small-scale weapons made for serial foreign ammunition.
    That is, all that is what is done above is absolutely worthless.
    These records must be made on their own weapons with ammunition of domestic production.
    So, for a minute, this is primarily the miners, remember the pre-war thirties of the USSR, mass shooting was developing, they fired from far from the newest and not the most advanced trilines, which by then had been in service for more than 40 years.
    Yes, they didn’t get to 2 km at night and didn’t even try.
    They fired at "real" ranges, fired a lot and in large quantities, and trained a large number of shooters, even if not all were snipers, but everyone was confident with their weapons.
    And when the Great Patriotic War began, the Wehrmacht suffered really monstrous losses from sniper fire of the Red Army.
    Once again, real records are not separate laboratory experiments, although of course they are very important.
