On the reason for the single-shot sniper rifle SVLK-14C "Twilight"

99

Almost all armies of the world are armed with sniper rifles. With their help, effective destruction of enemy personnel and equipment at long distances is ensured.


Requirements for the firing range in modern conditions are growing, and therefore the demand for single-shot sniper rifles is increasing. The world record in firing range among single-shot sniper rifles belongs to the famous Russian “Twilight” - this is the name of the SVLK-14S sniper rifle. It was developed in the Russian Federation in 2012 by specialists of the company Vladislav Lobaev, which has long specialized in the development and pilot production of high-precision sniper rifles.

SVLK-14S is specially manufactured in a single-shot version, as this allows you to provide the receiver stiffness required for ultra-long range shooting, as well as modularity and changeability of calibers.

As tests show, the rifle demonstrates outstanding shooting results at ranges of more than 2 kilometers. In 2017, a record was set - hitting from a distance of 4210 meters. Magazine rifles are distinguished by much more modest achievements in terms of firing range.

The receiver "Twilight" is made of aviation aluminum and high alloy stainless steel. At the same time, the new SVLK-14S model has a multilayer bed made of Kevlar, carbon fiber and fiberglass. These characteristics make it possible to achieve high range. weapons and its highest precision. The shutter of the SVLK-14S sniper rifle was also made of solid corrosion-resistant steel.


Many experts argue that at present the Lobaev’s rifle is out of competition in terms of precision firing, there are no more such weapons in the world. The characteristics of the domestic sniper rifle are not only not inferior, but far superior to the characteristics of foreign sniper weapons.

For example, the famous American CheyTac M200 rifle “Intervention” (a rifle with a magazine) shows accuracy much worse than accuracy of the SVLK-14S rifle (Russian rifle accuracy of 0,2MOA for a group of 5 shots). At the same time, experts believe that in the foreseeable future there will not be similar rifles in the world that can demonstrate equally high accuracy rates, and even under the 408 Cheytac cartridge. As you can see, the fact that the SVLK-14S rifle belongs to the class of single-shot sniper rifles, provided it with certain advantages over rifles with "store" ammunition. The fact is that “Dusk” is a sniper weapon for those cases when a second shot is most likely not needed. And if it is needed, it can hardly be successful - because the target is at a very great distance to continue to remain open for a new shot, immediately following the first. In this embodiment, the "store" ammunition simply loses its meaning. This is the main reason for the singly charged "Twilight".

According to some reports, now SVLK-14S rifles are in service with special forces of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, as well as special forces of the United Arab Emirates army.

      We’ll be honest, MO, and it is not particularly needed. 4 kilometer sniper shooting is a pure sport; in combat conditions it is very difficult to imagine a situation where such a shot would be feasible. For distances of a kilometer and a half, you can find cheaper weapons, under the more common ammunition (.338 Lapua?).

          This is a rifle based on the BARNARD-P bolt action. The receiver is single-shot, steel, without aluminum. True, the caliber is much smaller (308 and 6,5x55). The rifle was assembled back in 2009, February. So Lobaev did not invent anything new. Carbon stock with aluminum tire (Robertson), Montana barrels. "Heap" 0,14MOA.

          Given the distance, even 1x2m is very cool. Say, OSV-96, which was also conceived, including as a long-range one, it hit the 1x1m shield with very great difficulty already from 1000m.
          Then, the speech, as you yourself noted, is about a sports record; the size of the target, I believe, is the stipulations of the rules of this sport.

      hi
      From the SVLK-14 "Twilight" rifle they shot at a range of 4210 meters.
      The group of champions was led by sniper Andrei Ryabinsky.
      They say that this is a new world record in the range of fire from a sniper rifle.
      The manufacturer posted the news on October 03, 2017

      On the official channel I found a shot at 3400 m.
      Hit: strictly in the center, bottommost.

        Right. And this does not mean anything at all. One-shot hit is an accident. For a more or less reliable determination of accuracy and accuracy, you need to make at least 20 shots.

            Further, Mr. Lobaev reports that it took 10 months to prepare the shot, describes a new cartridge.

        Comparing the accuracy of these two rifles, everything is very ambiguous. For SVLK-14S, most of the sources give 0.3MOA per 100m, for the CheyTac M200 at 2500yards (2280m) it is indicated “less than 1MOA.” Therefore, the statement: “CheyTac M200 shows accuracy much worse than the accuracy of the SVLK-14S rifle” looks very vague.

              This does not happen. The bullet with which angle of dispersion flew out of the barrel - and so it flies to the end. A bullet cannot fly up to 500 m, for example, from 2MOA, and then suddenly change the angle to 3MOA.

          0.3MOA at 100m, the CheyTac M200 at 2500yards (2280m) indicates “less than 1MOA”.

          MOA is the CORNER minute, that is, the angular measurement of accuracy. The angular measurement of accuracy practically does not change with increasing range. That is, at Dusk, 0,3MOA both at 100m and 2 kilometers. And CheyTac has 1 OA both at 2280m and 100m.
          Now, if the accuracy was indicated by 15cm at a distance of 100m, then yes, with an increase in range, these 15cm increase by a multiple of the increase in range.

              How to say...
              We look at the first (VV) or second (Vb) columns: from 100m to 500m in general a millimeter to a millimeter (1,4 * 5 = 7). Linearly. The AK74 is linearly up to 600m.
              Further 500m - yes, rounding begins to affect, because 100m is not exactly 1,4cm, but 1,4Xcm. And the wind, both longitudinal and lateral, when testing cartridges increased the dispersion, which went to the table. Here - yes, not quite linear due to weather conditions.

    I think Mo needs it but not for rulers. Still, a sniper at such distances starting from 500m needs to be sure that the bullet will fly where it needs to with minimal corrections with a bunch of weather nuances (rain, snow, wind, heat, atmospheric pressure with the speed of the Planet , a joke). With SVD and its upgrades from Kalashnikov, you can’t shoot at a distance of more than 1 km with a stable result (all the same, it’s imprisoned for another).

      "With the speed of the planet, kidding." Well-ooh. Nobody canceled the Coriolis force. As far as I remember, data on the latitude and azimuth of the ship's movement were taken into account in the LMS of the battleship Yamato, just to take this force into account. Now, I think this is also taken into account.

    In 2017, a record was set - hitting from a distance of 4210 meters.

    I watched the video how this record was set. It was funny to watch how, in order to hit the target, the shooter takes aim at the sky. At such distances, the bullet flies along a rather impressive parabolic trajectory.

    In this case, the "store" ammunition simply loses its meaning. This is the main reason for the single-charge "Twilight".

    Most likely the point is in physics, and not that the store has lost its meaning. In the absence of a magazine there are fewer opportunities for side leakage of combustion products, and the bolt itself is simpler and can be more carefully adjusted to fit the cartridge, which means that the range of the bullet will be greater.

        Joining the store, as I understand it, requires a different barrel design for feeding the cartridge and other tolerances in the manufacture of the mechanism. And this, in turn, will lead to the fact that some of the gases will leak out and in the opposite direction from the direction of movement of the bullet. Which will lead to a certain decrease in pressure in the barrel and a decrease in the range of the bullet. Or is it not so?

            No verbiage is necessary, but simply explain why single-shot rifles are used for extra long distances, and they are released only in Russia, but also in other countries of the world. Why store rifles are not suitable for this, since stores do not affect the firing range?

              A store is needed to increase rate of fire. When shooting at very long distances, this factor does not matter, since preparing a shot takes a very long time.
              This is on the one hand.
              On the other hand, the presence of a magazine complicates the design and makes it heavier, especially taking into account the fact that such rifles have a large caliber and the magazine magazine has substantial weight.
              As the cartridges are spent, this weight changes, respectively, and the balance of the weapon, too, therefore there is a negative effect on the accuracy of fire.
              In addition, the presence of the receiving window requires additional measures to ensure the rigidity of the receiver, which also negatively affects the weight of the weapon.
              Therefore, sniper rifles for ultra-long range shooting and do not shop.

                        You are both right.
                        The combustion processes and the dynamics of the movement of gases and bullets along the barrel certainly affect the accuracy of the weapon, but the breakthrough of gases in the store means disaster, if my memory serves me, it was there that the ingenious old man Mauser tried to direct the gases that burst from the chamber into the accident.
                        God forbid you to milk to such a state, even having a Soviet vocational school behind you and strain gauging the shaft.
                        Usually, in order to stay alive and with eyes, it is enough to check the warmed sleeve for carbon deposits and the shutter mirror for the print from the bottom of the sleeve and the shape of the shot capsule.
                        If you are experimenting with large weights of gunpowder and (God forbid you have very small), and in your anatomy as a result of the experiments no drastic changes have occurred, then it is advisable to show the rifle to an officer who is able to measure the corresponding gaps.
                        As for the single-shot, the absence of a cutout for the store greatly simplifies the problems of transferring loads from the receiver to the butt, as well as the rigidity of the whole system.
                        The more powerful the cartridge, the more difficult it is to do it, I heard that the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare got burned on it - it broke sights, but I will not insist.
                        Most likely these guys could not cope with this.

          With an accuracy of 1 MOA for 2500 yards, we get a circle with a diameter of 25 inches - 63,5 cm. Therefore, to evaluate accuracy, there is such a unit as MOA. Once again, the MOA is an angle (an angular minute), not an accuracy of itself, but only its angular estimate.

          You are a little confused.

          Angular minute - it is also angular in Africa. And the distance does not change the angle.
          1 MOA at 2500 yards will give a circle of 25 inches.
          Reduce the distance by 25 times, to 100 yards, and get a circle of 1 inch. And the corner minute is still the same, 1MOA.

          Another question is that in reality, especially at long distances, the dependence of accuracy on distance is not linear. That is, 1 MOA per 100 yards does not guarantee 1 MOA per 2500 yards. But in the opposite direction it guarantees.

          If your rifle for 100 yards laid the bullets in a circle with a diameter of 25,4 mm, then the accuracy of your rifle is about 1 MOA. ...
          That is, the CheyTac Intervention M200rifle stacks bullets in a circle with a diameter of 25,4 mm, but for 2500 yards!

          Don't you understand what a corner is ?!
          Angle is the ratio of the dispersion perimeter to the range.
          Realized?

    Requirements for the firing range are growing in modern conditions, and therefore the demand for single-shot sniper rifles is increasing.

    Where is it from? The first time I hear about "the demand for single-shot sniper rifles is increasing."
    SVLK-14S is specially manufactured in a single-shot version, as this allows you to provide the receiver stiffness required for ultra-long range shooting, as well as modularity and changeability of calibers.

    Again by. Modularity is inherent in many rifles with box magazines. Examples are AXMC, DT SRS, etc.
    The rigidity of the "receiver" - we traditionally call this part of the weapon the receiver, but oh well, let there be a "receiver" - it does not prevent these rifles from shooting with very good accuracy.
    The fact is that “Dusk” is a sniper weapon for those cases when a second shot is most likely not needed. And if you need it, it can hardly be successful - because the target is at a very great distance,

    The first shot at long ranges, let alone record ones, will not be successful with a probability of at least 0,9. Long range, by the way, is an individual concept for each weapon-cartridge complex. The respected author seems to be unfamiliar with the basics of shooting.

    For the first time I heard about the Lobaev cantor on channel 715 TEAM, so the article was very interesting. Too bad it's so short.

      1 This rifle is needed simply as an example of the fact that we can do this if we do business with knowledge of the matter, with love, honestly, not trying to deceive ourselves and others, then a lot of things work out as they should.
      2 it as a mechanism has a simple device, it is possible that there are only two dozen parts in it, therefore there are no objective reasons to significantly reduce the cost of mass production
      3 interesting to try experimenting with the barrel, change it to composite

        I think that they did it for a reason, but by order of the anti-terrorist center of one of the special services of our country. For military intelligence, such weapons are unlikely to be needed - they have other tasks and there are more suitable rifles such as SVD or Vintorez.

          If you need to hit the target for 4 km with small arms, it’s better not to do it with one convolutional shot, but with a series of high-density shots in a short time, like with an automatic revolving rifle.

    To begin with, I shoot from a similar rifle for about 20 years and have already changed 3 barrels.
    Caliber 300 Winchester Magnum, accuracy, so to speak, 10-15 mm two shots at 200 meters from sandbags.
    The Barnard bolt group, the Krieger barrel is made to order, the Robertson stock is made to order, the Jul trigger, the chamber sweep is made to order, and so on .... Everything together with the Schmitt and Bender scope and ballistic calculator pulls $ 10 plus
    I also personally know one of the former owners of Barnard.
    The fact that the author has listed is nothing new, the trouble is that the reader of such materials has little idea how things are in reality with such weapons.
    To begin with, in real conditions, you are unlikely to be able to shoot from stands, legs of tripods and rugs - it will just be difficult for you to find a fairly smooth surface - for example, in the mountains, moreover, the reaction of the surface with which you decide to shoot should be identical to the one used for shooting .
    Any non-regular rifle jump will reduce your illustrious MOA to nothing.
    I personally shoot from the belt (special belt) from the prone position and from the knee, but for this I have to hold a 24 kg weight in my left hand in a position from the knee and a pood on a swinging platform if standing ...
    Those who love big cartridges, but have never used them, you need to take into account that rebound can be such that the retina will peel off and you will become blind or if there is a muzzle tomosis, and deaf may be both.
    It would not be amiss to say that such rifles are made under one cartridge and one bullet, and it is desirable that this very bullet would press on the gunpowder in the cartridge case with easy compression (free term) in my case the store simply cannot be used
    unnecessarily, the bullet is pushed forward so that it can only stay in the sleeve. That's why a special sweep of the chamber was needed, etc.
    In short, the factory will not make such cartridges for you.
    Even if you overcame haemorrhoids with charging cartridges and they differ by no more than 0.1 grams on the scales and finally got to the shooting range with your sniper, so to speak, surprises like speed differences between the first and second shot, between the cold barrel and warm barrel, etc., which will reduce your advertising MOA to zero, yes, do not forget to check the tightness of the bolts to the butt with a calibrated key.
    When you shoot, keep a record of each cartridge (you can’t store them for more than a year), because the barrel under a high-intensity cartridge, like those that use real heroes from the Internet, can withstand only about 1000 shots without noticeable loss of accuracy, and if you know how it is, those. barrel, clean it properly.
    It is easy to guess that in order to be a cool sniper from militants, you need to make about 5000 rounds per year, which means at least 1-2 new barrels per year and almost all, I repeat almost all hemorrhoids with ammunition and ballistic new ones.
    Nobody canceled purely the technique of shooting from your (or mine) monster, it’s difficult to work it out on such a product, so there is a need to train at idle.
    Here gentlemen, pay attention to the bolt group of the Barnard company; there is an opportunity to loosen the tension of the fighting springs and save the percussion mechanism (special false cartridge in the chamber).
    But if you fell in love with the Barnard bolt group of all souls as I love it, don’t forget that the bolt’s protrusion in this design is prone to wear and tear, which leads to the detonation of the cartridge when the bolt is not fully closed, and sometimes completely open.
    It is clear that fathers commanders will scratch their turnips for a long time before putting out money for such a product, but lovers of Pulp Fiction in English would dare to sign up for a shooting club and start training, especially since the Soviet shooting school is one of the best in the world.

      It is immediately obvious from the commentary that the person is deeply in the subject and understands what and what he is talking about. It was nice to read this comment. More interesting at times than an article. Sergey, from me personally "+" and a greeting.

        I would like to ask you a series of questions
        1. 15-15 mm is the scattering diameter or deviation from the center of the target
        2 what is the dispersion diameter at those record distances that we are told about 1500 m and 2000 m and what is the probability of getting into it from the first shot
        3 and a naive question, if shooting with such a rifle is difficult and dangerous for the shooter, then why not remake it purely for shooting from a "gun carriage", especially since they do not shoot for kilometers.

    I read the work of A.A. Potapov a year ago. - "The Art of the Sniper", it is true there is about the classic Soviet systems, the times of the USSR, and about the specifics of training snipers of army units. An excellent book.
    According to SVLK-14C “Sumrak” or its classmates, such systems are not for the army, it is a piece of goods and expensive. Only for sports or for the FSB and with their own specifics of use. In battle, such a product is of little use, it will be necessary to shoot there quickly, not once, and often with a change of position. There are too many factors preventing a successful one long-range (more than 1600-1700m) shot. Although a distance of 2km is quite a working distance for this rifle, if necessary (for example, neutralizing a terrorist with hostages next to him ) for the accuracy of the hit, it is unlikely that at least one sniper or the commander of the sniper group will take responsibility.
    I don’t impose an opinion, but it’s about the same as for the army and the GRU, since the SVD is often not enough in combat conditions, the rifle is 338Magnum Lapua or in our 8,61mm caliber. They have a range limit of 1600m, and this is more than enough, such a distance for training snipers of the Ministry of Defense is very, very worthy. The only moment, in combat conditions, snipers are not immune from close (closer than 300m) battle in dynamics, additional weapons are required, since with a bolt of 8,61 mm without an open sight, it’s problematic for a sniper to work with him in a shootout.
    And the shooting race with calibers of 12,7-14,5 at 2500-3000-3500-4000-4500 meters is the lot of athletes. There and the conditions are completely un-fighting. Loss, nothing fatal, there it is not a matter of life and not life.
    And for the army, nobody canceled the issue of overall weight and weight characteristics.
    This is not an axiom, just an opinion.
