      Of course, how can Barrett, created at a high-tech enterprise from high-tech materials, brought into a manual barrel and tested by more than one military conflict, can be better than the Kord ASVK made by a drunken turner from a bumper from a Zaporozhets on a 68-year-old machine.

    Exactly to the extent that the Zaporozhets car is no worse than the Audi car.

      Kord's cartridge will be more powerful - 12.7x108 mm versus 12.7 x 99 mm.

        In this case, the length of the cartridge case has no relation to the power of the cartridge, they both give out about 18000 Joules. But the quality, the most important parameter for a sniper cartridge, is disgusting in ours.

    I myself will soon buy myself a barrel (I’m not a fighting canoe - I’m an airsoft player), but it can’t be compared with the os-96, even when it takes off at the speed of a bullet - it gives out 900 m / s

    but nifiga this is not a sniper. it is, as it is fashionable to say now, "Anti-material rifle". and her accuracy in 1MOA (like that of SVD) is forgivable. It seems to me that there is M-82 everywhere in the photo. educate ignoramus

    With such a one and a half meter shnyaga quickly do not run, it is easier with a grenade launcher. Well, American propaganda works well.
    Ours in response will release nanowires with nanoparticles for nanosoldat.

    The problem is not a rifle, the problem is preparation! For a year, there is no way to make a sniper in the Army - well, a good shooter! There are geniuses but few of them !!! The sniper is now mainly in special forces.
