"Smudge" a sniper with 2-km: rifle DXL-4 will not leave the enemy a chance

97
Private weapons industries capable of creating high-quality, effective and high-precision systems without multi-million infusions of state money can be counted on the fingers in Russia. Even fewer are those who produce not only weapons that shoot with average characteristics in the class, but also truly outstanding models.

Rifles assembled at the private weapons production of Vladislav Lobayev in the Kaluga region have long been beyond the scope of conventional sniper weapons. As they say in such cases: "Firm brooms do not knit." Modern high-precision sniper systems manufactured by Lobaev Arms no longer resemble a combined arms weapon.

An uninitiated person with a quick glance in a fashionable “chatter” painted in summer greenish camouflage can be guessed by some new-fashioned “Remington” or “Intervention”, but the engraving of “Lobaev Arms” makes it clear that this product was made in Russia .

DXL-2 HARASSER (“INNOVER”)



Impressions of high cost and quality, attention to detail - something like these is experienced when one of the most advanced rifles of the Lobaev company is in the hands - DXL-2. Most professional snipers, athletes and connoisseurs of benchrest in one voice say that the “Lobaev” rifle on an aluminum frame is one of the best that you can buy for money.

Technically uniqueness of the rifle is given traditionally minimal tolerances, which are not just laws - the philosophy of the Russian gunsmith company. Technical accuracy in 0,35MOA on 100 meters with a group of five shots is an incredible result.

The caliber in which the DXL-2 is made is still one of the most successful sniper ammunition in the line. The 308 Winchester (or 7,62x51-mm in Russian) is one of the most stable ammunition for firing at a distance of just over a thousand meters. According to the characteristics of such ammunition can be compared with the domestic 7,62x54-mm, but only in a high-quality rifle with well-cut barrel channels such ammunition will be able to reveal its full potential.

Despite the fact that a serious ammunition condemns a rifle to a serious return, this problem is not observed in DXL-2. Subjectively, the constructive decisions and the individual elements of the structure are worked out in a Russian rifle in such a way that you feel no recoil when fired than when firing from some small piece. Is that the sound of a shot hints at the fact that in your hands is not a children's hack for shooting at sparrows, but a serious sniper rifle, which can be used by the FSB special unit sniper.

During the painstaking study of competitors, one gradually comes to the conclusion that foreign competitors such as the widely advertised Steyr SSG 08 for the same ammunition and its declared accuracy - less than one minute of minutes looks like a dull and unattractive Russian background. However, apparently, a graceful beauty with a longitudinal sliding gate is not all that a private Russian company is going to represent.

The development team plans to release a more “heavy” version, which will be more like a small howitzer that can knock down a dinosaur, because the ammunition that Vladislav Lobayev’s team plans to use for it is nothing but the .408 CheyTac cartridge, which (albeit from another rifle) a little earlier the world record was set in the firing range - 3440 meters.

DVL-10 SABOTEUR ("SABOTER")




Perhaps the most unusual rifle, which only ever seen. The national school of designing sniper weapons, which once gave the army the legendary SVD, the large-caliber 6C8 “Kord”, in rifles built without a drop of state support, is not guessed at all. The smoothness of the lines, convenience, versatility, an abundance of mounts, slats - all this gives the rifle a modern and technically thoughtful product.

For a long time I had to figure out what class this weapon belongs to. The founder of the company, Vladislav Lobayev, dispelled doubts and reflections: “By and large, the DVL-10 can be effectively used both in the police special forces units and as the main sniper rifle of the army units. Here, each according to his needs, ”the Russian armorer tells in an exclusive interview with Zvezda.





The combination of qualities, according to Vladislav, is quite enough for firing in any conditions: in a mountain-wooded area, in a city ... and everywhere where it is necessary to precisely put a bullet in 308 caliber at a distance of a thousand meters. The accuracy of the DVL-10 rifle is traditional for rifles produced in Tarusa - 0,4 MOA at a distance of 100 meters with a group of five shots (12mm between the centers). Completes the picture of impressions of a rifle that is light and compact by the standards of sniper armament - a magazine for 10 cartridges, with which you can conduct high-precision shooting for quite a long time.

ADULT TOYS

Sniping sniping strife. The suppression of gangsters in urban environments is not the same as counter-sniper shooting. The realities of modern war have long shown the need to use counter-sniper groups - specially trained shooters, whose goal is the destruction of enemy sniper pairs. That such people are needed, everyone agrees. The main controversy arises around what kind of rifle should be used for this.



For konstsniperskoy shooting in the armies of Western countries are used rifles completely different calibers - from 308 to 50BMG caliber (12,7x99mm). However, those whose idol was and remains Colonel Jeff Cooper - mentor of the western school of combat shooters, know that for each specific task you need your own rifle. The Russian philosophy of counter-sniper shooting is represented by the DXL-4 rifle chambered for the 408 Cheytac cartridge (10.3x77mm).

Massive, thundering ammunition during a shot can completely smudge an enemy sniper at distances of up to two and a half thousand meters inclusive. The radius of damage from such a rifle cannot be described verbally, and it is difficult to explain exactly how a rifle shoots with accuracy at 0,45MOA when the target is barely different in optics. The skepticism about the novelty from Lobayeva is dissipated when Nicholas Smith is connecting to talk about high-precision systems - an American shooting athlete, a former sniper of the Navy Seals division (US NAVY SEAL), and now a high-precision shooting instructor.

It turns out that private domestic sniper systems in the West are watched no worse than domestic sniper weapons lovers are watching the news "from there":

“When a friend called me and said that the Russians were firing the farthest in the world, and from a rifle assembled by a private company, I thought it was some sort of rubbish. Then I looked at the report and realized that this guy from the city, whose names I could not even pronounce, was able to achieve a phenomenal level of shooting, both in range and quality. After reading about what exactly they are doing, I realized that the Russians are serious players in the world market of sniper weapons, ”an American veteran sniper said in an interview with Zvezda.



The rifle developed by Lobaev’s team is not just a weapon that shoots far and accurately. In addition to the accuracy of the DXL-4 has such a working temperature range, which is not the majority of manufacturers of sniper weapons. Such a rifle can work from -45 degrees to + 65 degrees Celsius, which means that the Russian army sniper (on which such rifles are mainly oriented) can quite easily shoot such a rifle somewhere in the Arctic, without thinking about that she is even theoretically capable of letting him down.




According to many army snipers, such a rifle was not enough for a long time in service with the Russian army. World-class rifles with the label “Lobaev Arms” finally made it clear that the era of total superiority of Western sniper weapons had irrevocably gone, and the Russian army sniper had its own hero and its own “rifle”.

              State-owned enterprises are forced to produce weapons under the domestic patron, and a private trader - a free artist, has the right to produce weapons under the best cartridges in the world. Therefore, comparing their products is not correct.

              It is unlikely that we are able to do single things, sometimes revolutionary. The trouble is in mastering the series. The organization of highly class production without bulk and companionship, strict observance of quality and its control at all stages of its ambush.

    “By and large, DVL-10 can be effectively used both in units of police special forces and as the main sniper rifle of the army unit


    As world practice has shown, at the squad-platoon level, a self-loading sniper is needed. This is for work at a distance of up to 600 meters.
    It is not clear why in the army a rifle capable of hitting a range of more than 1,5 km? To defeat targets at such distances, other types of weapons are enough. Even in sniper divisions of a divisional or brigade level, rifles with a longitudinally-sliding shutter, operating for 1-1,5 km, are needed. For the police, too, such cars are not needed much. As for TsSN FSB - under their order, if they need it.
    You can, apparently, create a barrel for a certain ammunition that can set records at ranges of 2, 3, 5 km. But who really needs this? The riddle ...

    I serve in the DNR intelligence department. We need long-range and not heavy rifles. Now we have only SVD. In June, a dill sniper was hit at Maryinka from a distance of 1200 m. This is a very big luck and luck.

    You also need a case with money to buy this rifle. Expensive is a pleasure.

      What is the machine in the West ???
      The M16 is NOT an automatic rifle.
      Sturmgewehr 44 classic assault rifles
      Our Kalash is similar to her, not because it is a copy, but because ALSO the assault rifle.
      Although we have Thompson / MP 40 / PCA and Kalash and M16 called automata.
      BUT it is a VERY different weapon (constructively)
      MP 40 for example in general - a submachine gun as PCA.

          Maybe during the war someone had something better in this class of weapons?

        I also wanted to clarify: everyone probably watched the Hollywood movie. So, the scene - a group of military / spetsnazovsky comrades with standard M16 cleansing the premises (large) - not once saw everything ..
        And the babayka can jump out from ANY direction.
        Strange rustles, suspicious sounds ..

        And that is typical - all the rifles hold the stop in the shoulder.
        And twist the trunks in different directions (flashlights on the trunks ..)
        remember ??

        And why? But because the M16 is NOT an assault rifle like a Kalashnikov ...
        Alas, and ah.
        In melee she loses substantially. Place fighters
        in the BMP / BTR with her problematic ..
        A classic Kalashnikov - is shooting from the sample from the bead
        no stock at all ... (folded)
        Toko INTO watched the story about the Belarusian border guards on
        Ukrainian border .. They have the type of standard weapons.

          So far we have settled on .408 for many reasons, in the future it is possible to start production in this caliber, but the main problem that we see at the moment is the cartridge.

    I don’t know about the monument, but RESPECT the company deserves! It issues a specific quality product, not protocols of design intent! And the cost is a completely different conversation. The price of ten products is one, and thousands are completely different! Ammunition is also a separate issue that can be relatively easily resolved. You just have to do THIS!

    Small arms manufacturers in Russia lag far behind the gunsmiths of America and Europe, even some Asian countries. The mass of the newest calibers with ballistics is such that you will "swing" the barrels of the latest developments, both semi-automatic and "bolts" and there are a lot of them. Even ordinary and unremarkable hunters usually show angular minutes. And rifles about a thousand dollars are all sub-minute. A friend bought Accuracy International AW 308 a week ago. The model differs from the previous ones by the ability to quickly change the barrel and change the caliber. And the price is not at all Loboevskaya. It's just that Vintvki Loboeva today is the only thing that Russia can be proud of in benchrest and sniping. But his rifles are a drop in the ocean. I really, really hope that where necessary the people are armed with high-precision rifles with modern (latest developments) sniper calibers. The development of high-precision ammunition and weapons is carried out only from such a sport as Benchrest. This type of shooting sport is just emerging in Russia. Loboev pulls these ideas into production as much as possible. "The British do not clean guns with broken bricks" This is still Lefty noticed. We need it not worse, and maybe better.

      this is to be expected - the absence of a civilian market does not allow the samples to be "licked" the way the Americans can, for example.
      With us - the MO ordered, acquired, issued to the soldier and everything, if that does not suit you - your problem.

    This must be done if there is a profit. Otherwise, you will break your forehead. Comrade Lobaev must decide for whom, in what volumes and for what needs he will do it all.

    one of the most stable ammunition for firing at a range of just over a thousand meters

    Excuse me, I won’t believe it. High-precision shooters fired at 1000 meters in competitions. 308 lays nearby, yes, but to get to have a fair share of luck. From 0.338, Lapua yes, mostly fall.
    Only we were not sold a license for its production. In general, all athletes buy foreign-made bullets. More or less "decent" cartridges that our industry produces are made from imported components. And that quality jumps like a flea.
    Our cartridge factories do not purchase modern equipment. What result can we talk about if the bullets are crooked, the shell thickness is uneven and floats unpredictably even within the same batch. The bullet rolling height due to the old worn lines floats.

    “By and large, DVL-10 can be effectively used both in units of police special forces and as the main sniper rifle of the army unit


    As world practice has shown, at the squad-platoon level, a self-loading sniper is needed. This is for work at a distance of up to 600 meters.
    It is not clear why in the army a rifle capable of hitting a range of more than 1,5 km? To defeat targets at such distances, other types of weapons are enough. Even in sniper divisions of a divisional or brigade level, rifles with a longitudinally-sliding shutter, operating for 1-1,5 km, are needed. For the police, too, such cars are not needed much. As for TsSN FSB - under their order, if they need it.
    You can, apparently, create a barrel for a certain ammunition that can set records at ranges of 2, 3, 5 km. But who really needs this? The riddle ...

    I agree with you. At long ranges, it is logically easier to fire a turn from AGS-17 (albeit at the limit of range - but a long burst from a tape will solve this issue), and better an armored personnel carrier / BMP from a 30 mm gun - there are more chances to hook / destroy an enemy "sniper" and other adversaries ...
    Real Ponte they are always expensive wink
