SVIDM modernized sniper rifles began to enter the Russian army, reports TASS message source in the DIC.


At the international exhibition IDEX 2015

“Concern" Kalashnikov "has already begun serial deliveries of modernized SVD to the Russian defense department. The rifles received an extremely positive assessment of the military, since its design eliminated all the technical shortcomings of the SVD. At the same time, the concern has radically improved the quality of the SVDM production, ”
said the source.

He added that "representatives of law enforcement agencies, as well as foreign customers, are showing an increased interest in SVDM."

According to the manufacturer, “the upgraded Dragunov sniper rifle is distinguished by an improved scheme of operation of the gas mechanism, the presence of Picatinny slats for riflescopes and rifle accessories, and an ergonomic butt.”

    A good rifle, it will serve for a long time. I wonder the concept of use in the army will be the same for snipers? Or will there be something like a Marxman in the USA?

            Pictured is the SVDS rifle. Those. conventional SVD with folding butt. The article talks about SVDM, which in many ways is not similar to SVDS.
            PS By the way, I noticed that often an article about one weapon and the photos presented do not correspond to the topic.

              A screw cutter is a rifle with a firing range of up to 400 meters, this is not the level of SVD, it is generally a different class of weapons, more relevant for reconnaissance and special units operating on enemy territory or when performing special tasks ...

            This SVU rifle has worse accuracy even than the old SVD ... The upgraded version of the SVDM besides the new handles and mounts of the sights has a thicker barrel, which increases the accuracy of the rifle, in other words, the accuracy of the fire increases, which means it is possible to conduct effective firing at a great distance .. .

      Well, at the expense of individual units of infantry snipers, as in the USA, it can also be organized in our country. Only here SVDM for widespread use in the troops has been made. So to speak, designed for mass use. And this is good.
      p / sBy the way, our friend Steven Seagal starred in the movie "Sniper". In the company with "Orsis t 5000" It was nice to see our rifle in the title role yes

      I have the impression that we ourselves have not somehow decided on the concept of high-precision shooting. With our Ministry of Defense, too, not everything is clear - the impression is that the cat Vaska listens and eats ... his own, deeply hidden. Although here the Putin's view of the problem most obviously suggests itself: "flies separately, cutlets separately." That is, a well-aimed shooter of the battlefield and the actual sniper are almost completely different military specialties, although they are united by the general concept of accuracy. And the basic requirements for the tool of specialists immediately emerge. And if 1 MOA, reliability, price - for the first specialty do not raise doubts, then for the second even 0.5 MOA will be a bit too much, and if here "we will not stand for the price" (within reasonable limits), then the question of reliability is "in the field" for modern steamed Orsis and Lobaev Arms becomes critical and can only be solved on military state tests. Actually, I would bet on military gunsmiths, who at an affordable price will probably be able to provide shooters and snipers with tools for solving a certain range of tasks, as an illustration I can refer to the pack dedicated to the SK 16 carbine in Popular Mechanics (http: // panzerbar. livejournal.com/3369378.html)http://topwar.ru/uploads/images/2
      016/151 / foea138.jpg
      As for the SVDM, despite the well-deserved reputation of the SVD, its MOA within 1.1-1.4 is no longer a guiding landmark in our time. And if on this site the SVDM (which, in principle, is a novelty of "second freshness)" receives complimentary reviews from the sofa positions, then on sites where people are somehow involved in shooting, this assessment is not so unambiguous and in some places even closer to the obscene one, although in different reasons (see, for example, http://guns.allzip.org/topic/2/1688860.html) Not being an expert, I do not undertake to evaluate the SVDM. But here comes another problem. First, a quote
      After the creation of the SVDS sniper rifle in the 1990s, the designers of the IzhMash concern in the 2000s proposed prototypes of the SVDSM and SVDM rifles chambered for 7.62x54 R.
      The combination of the hung barrel and high-precision chrome plating improved accuracy indicators, and allowed the SVDSM and SVDM tight rifles to approach the 1MOA at all practical firing ranges. In the version under the cartridge .308 Win rifle has minute accuracy and even less.
      . In principle, the use of the standard 7.62x54 R cartridge for sniper shooting today does not even attract an oxymoron. A look from the use of the Putin concept opens things that are interesting even for a couch amateur - I quote again
      Target and sniper cartridges - Finnish-made cartridges such as D-46, D-47, D-166 have the best accuracy. In the 50s, quite successful sports cartridges "Goddess", "Typhoon", "Extra" (bullet weight 13 g) and "Vostok" (bullet weight 11.7-12.0 g) were developed in the USSR. The standard army sniper cartridges 7N1 and 7N14 have a lower bullet mass corresponding to the mass of an ordinary bullet (9.6 g), which allows the trajectory of the bullets of conventional and sniper cartridges to be coupled and use a single sight scale. However, the lower mass of bullets, in comparison with sports cartridges, worsens the accuracy performance when firing at medium and long distances. The bullet of the cartridge 7N1 has a lead, and 7N14 - a sharpened steel hardened core.
      . It turned out that the combination here turned out to be the most important for the Moscow Region, I won’t talk about the triumph of a great mind, but in our time ignoring, even looking at Putin, the principle of separating flies and cutlets, is still fraught with troubles in achieving at least acceptable results.

        I’m even afraid to ask - what exactly do you mean by sniper shooting? And then what about the reincarnation of USami M -14? What kind of fire protection they use it for? In general, a taste of the fact that the same USs are called Marxman and his place in the infantry division, why do weapons for them go under the standard cartridge adopted for service?

        Well, yes. They were bought for snipers of special units, of the same group "A", which had snipers with the appropriate rifles. For example, Aglitskys were available in the 90s.

        You have the wrong impression. And let's separate the flies from cutlets and see the staff of the Russian motorized rifle squad. On an armored personnel carrier.
        Such a department includes a sniper with SVD. And within the framework of the BS ms department, he will definitely solve the tasks of high-precision shooting at a distance.
        I explain once again. My grandfather was a sniper in the war. Despite the fact that the rifles for them were taken away at the factory and the accurate firing range of about 1000m, the sniper mosquito had one drawback. Which, as it were, is not a drawback, when you need one accurate shot. However, since 1943, snipers began to be used not only as hunters, but also as support. And here this flaw surfaced in all its glory. The aim of the mosquito is mounted directly above the shutter. Without the PSO, the mosquito is charged with charging, but with it there is only one cartridge. Well, what kind of support can there be? Your squad lay under a machine gun, you shoot the fifth cartridge and the tedious reloading process begins. And at this time ... a machine gun that has survived is mowing your colleagues.
        Therefore, the SVD stood, will stand and will be in service with the squads, as long as there is a contact battle.
        And accurate shooting at a long range is nothing at all. But survivability, fire density and power bp .. are very important. SVD has all this and plus quite good accuracy if the cartridge is not machine-gun.

      Well, since we found out that he is aiming with his right eye, I will additionally note one thing. There are people whose leading eye does not correlate with the leading hand. That is: the Lefty is aiming from the left shoulder, but it is convenient for him to aim only from the right eye. This happens (as far as I know is rare), but it happens.

      The Mosin rifle has its drawbacks, for example, a wooden bed requires constant reduction of weapons to normal combat if the weather conditions change in temperature and humidity, in addition, with better accuracy than the SVD, the Mosin rifle has a lower rate of fire, and since our army is sharpened for defense before of all, then the concept of sniper weapons is mostly defensive, but in defense it is better to use an automatic rifle than a rifle with manual locking of the barrel ... Remember the sniper woman Pavlyuchenko, her favorite weapon was SVT with optics ... By the way, I saw it in museums of the Soviet army SVT with optics and silencer! Now the silencer would also not hurt in the SVDM kit ...

        Read the Charter of the Red Army, on the topic of defense. Why exactly this charter? Because the last combat charter that led the army to victory in the world war.
        As for Mosinki and CBT. SVT had worse accuracy. The mosquito’s main problem is not the bed. And the charging system with PSO.

          SVT certainly had worse accuracy, but it was quite suitable for sniper shooting, which Pavlyuchenko proved in practice by destroying more than 300 fascists ... SVD were adopted based on the experience of the Second World War !!! But the Mosin rifle has a problem, and it is precisely because of the wooden bed, with differences in temperature and humidity it affects the rifle differently at the time of the shot and this leads to different deflection of the STP, which can lead to a miss ... Therefore, the rifle required frequent reduction to normal battle ... But what about charging and aiming, what’s wrong with the Mosin rifle?

            No. Firstly, the size of the bed did not allow to strongly influence the geometry of the trunk. And secondly ... see the fastening to the box of the mechanism itself. All through the rings. There are such gaps that any curvature will be stolen.
            But really - with inaccurate charging, you could shoot down the scope.
            SV also has a wooden bed.

      What about her with accuracy? in 1 MOA fits? Wikipedia claims that only 308 Win achieves such accuracy.
      It's a pity.

      It was necessary to upgrade to .338 Lapua Magnum (8,6 × 70 mm). That's the thing.

        Why change something? The SVD was made specifically for the rifle cartridge which is used including machine guns ... If you change the cartridge, then you need to change all the machine guns in the army !!! What's the point? The drawback of the 1908 model cartridge - the complexity of its use in automatic weapons - has been successfully resolved, and SVD and PC and all its variants are reliable and effective !!! Accuracy, and therefore accuracy, does not depend on the cartridge, or rather not only on the cartridge, but more on the barrel !!! In addition, the SVD sniper cartridge has tremendous lethal power, the bullet is specially unbalanced, in addition its front part is made of high-strength metal, and the rear part is made of lead, and it turns out that at a short distance of up to 400 meters the bullet striking the enemy because of its power inflicts on him additional damage with a water hammer, internal organs are torn, and if you are defeated at a long distance, when the speed of the bullet drops, when hit in the body, it instantly goes somersault tearing into two parts and winds on these pieces of tissue and tendons of the enemy ... The defeat of the enemy by the SVD sniper bullet in a limb is its practical detachment, chest and head are death ... With such a slaughter bullet, less accuracy is not so critical ... Especially considering the experience of the Second World War where 65% of targets were hit at a distance of up to 300 meters, and all the rest up to 600, very rarely did anyone shoot a long distance ... And shooting NATO shooters at a distance of 2 km or more is a fairy tale ... It would be a reality, somebody would We repeated at least at the training ground ... But I have never seen something like this from a standard rifle ... If a rifle has an effective firing range of 1500 meters, then how can it be aimed at a target that is a kilometer further ?! But nothing ... I saw the shooting of athletes who shot a rifle at such a distance and shot in a circle with a diameter of a meter ... So there was a special insert between the rifle and the scope to compensate for the lack of the required range on the sight ...
        Here pay attention to the photo. shooting from the Lobaev rifle at 3 km .. Could this be the NATO shooters with you? Of course not. but you can lie with three boxes, this is a war, someone will check something:

            Shoot what? I LPSom hit a balloon at 550 meters lying from a support, and the distance was not known in advance, out of 7 shots of the last 3, all fell on the target, and the last shot I made anew ... The first ones went to zeroing in ... And I did not some athlete, but a simple regular sniper who fired once a month at a couple of stores, if other snipers in outfits ... You don't compare the gross cartridges of the Great Patriotic War period and the modern LPS ... Do you think you will always have the opportunity to shoot only sniper cartridges? I doubt it ... If a sniper uses LPS, it means that he simply does not have "sniper" cartridges, but does not at all speak about his level !!! Or do you think that such a sniper comes to the commander, and he says to him, well, choose what to give you, "sniper" cartridges, or take LPS in a bucket if you like them better))) ... yours What is given and what is available, the sniper uses ... It is better to shoot LPS than not shoot at all ... In addition, even in the manual on the SVD it is indicated that the sniper must always have a tracer and armor-piercing incendiary ammunition !! !

              I'm embarrassed to ask ... what size ball ???
              And if they shot a ball and hit it, then there was no wind at all ??? After all, the ball, from the slightest breath of the breeze, is in trouble swaying in different directions. If you have adequately coped with this task, and the ball was of the NORMAL (for the ball) sizes ... then it is deservedly EXCELLENT.
              The question is, how was the distance determined? Approximately? Laz. Rangefinder? Or along the path?
              And after each successful shot, did someone change the ball? Or was it a lot hanging?

              a sniper is not someone who knows how to shoot. This is a banal shooter, good or not.
              A sniper is a completely different thing; he must know and be able to do much more. Especially masked. How many people call themselves snipers, but in reality almost no one is.

          people often see their eyes differently and it’s far from the fact that the right is better.
          And for a sniper, the quality of vision is very important.

With two hands, slowly lift the sheet with the hole until we see a point object in the hole. Close and open your eyes one by one. That eye, as you see the object in the hole and you need to aim.

      The most important thing is that the barrel was made thicker and, as they say, unloaded it, this increased the accuracy of fire, that is, increased accuracy ... Roughly if before the SVD was considered suitable for normal combat, if she had a series of several 3-4 rounds laid in a circle with a diameter 8 cm per 100 meters, now I think this figure is close to the standard sniper standard of 4 cm per 100 meters ... There used to be SVD rifles that had a dispersion of 100 meters about 3,2 cm, but this was rare ... Previously, even I read that someone specially weighted the barrel with the help of metal rods bolted to it to make it more rigid and stable when shooting ... It would be nice to see somewhere the results of shooting at 100 meters at least to see what it really is capable of new SVDM ...

    Svd thing! I had to somehow shoot once. I liked it very much. The balancing is very good. Lies on the arm evenly and does not crash. Shooting is a pleasure.
    SVU-S, most likely, due to its bullpup, has less accuracy. I had to somehow shoot from a small bullpup. It "moths" it strongly when aiming. It seemed to be much stronger than AK.
    Although, maybe if you get used to training for a long time.

      IED did everything right for the battle in the city, hence the shortened version and the flame arrester on it ... And its low accuracy generally suited a short battle distance in the city ... But this rifle was not widespread, because it is impossible to make units that will fight exclusively in cities, often also in the field ... Therefore, ordinary SVD has become more widespread ...

    To weight the barrel with rods - raving.
    The thickness of the barrel plays a role when the bullet passes through the bore of the barrel, there are vibrations ... and the thicker the barrel, the smaller the amplitude of the vibrations. The higher the amplitude, the higher the spread. And having twisted the rods, you upset the balance of the trunk ... which will disastrously affect accuracy.

        You are about different vibrations. The rods, that is, weighting, reduce the overall oscillation.
        A barrel with thick walls bends less during a shot. Corruption is, but the amplitude decreases.

    All these upgrades are similar to the attempt of a peasant to polish a copper nickel on a felt boot, in the hope that it will cost more brilliant. According to the theory, first you need to choose the right gunpowder and make a good sniper steam, it’s also possible in the dimensions of the old 7.62 * 54. The accuracy of the bullet should be at a good level, and the gunpowder is well hung, burned for a short period and have a low muzzle pressure. This will make it possible to use a shorter and thicker barrel with the same weight, which helps to improve the accuracy of the battle of weapons. Everything is very simple. You only need to perform a sequence of events, instead of grabbing at the external paraphernalia, like drowning in a straw.

    Actually, SVDM has an adjustable cheek butt - and judging by the video, it has a ratchet mechanism and is extremely easy to adjust.

    By the way, on the topic of the photo in the title - again, it’s nothing that SVDM, in addition to a thicker-walled trunk, comes with installed bipods (we already wrote about the presence of the picatini bar above.)

    The photo with the Arabs is certainly touching. Such "darlings" ... But the simplest and most basic question about the accuracy parameters is somehow blurred ... There is no answer in the article. The updated SVD thing in military units is simply necessary. A million manuals, rules, tactics of application ... According to modern classification, a soldier armed with such a rifle is "Marksman". And there is nothing to be wise. When using a cartridge of the same caliber 7,62 / 54R, one can speak of "improved ergonomics", which, in my opinion, has been successfully solved in previous models, and "accuracy" due to the installation of a thicker barrel of better quality. But there is no data on improving accuracy in the article. We can only assume that the accuracy was brought to the corner minute in dense. But did the SVDM become sub-minute from this? Question .. Hey sinister, where are you there? Especially for you .. No ORSIS T 5000 will ever replace SVD and modifications. Since, with comparable accuracy characteristics, the SVD has much greater firepower and is more "plastic" in performing combat missions. And the fact that SVD ha is more dear to me personally .. so there are no words. From one memory of the NSPU, the eye still begins to hurt not only the right but also the left. ..))))))

    It was necessary to upgrade to .338 Lapua Magnum (8,6 × 70 mm). That's the thing.


    Ammunition in the army should be unified to the maximum, of course, you can give a staff sniper of a motorized rifle department a rifle for a magnum cartridge, but where is the guarantee that the suppliers will not mix up and bring the necessary cartridges before the battle? This happened in the WWII when the militia was given Austrian rifles and ammunition cartridges lying in warehouses (at the same time, Austrian cartridges were in excess in warehouses). The company enters the position, digs in, the battle begins. And then it turns out that Mosin’s cartridges can be fired only one at a time, stuffing them into the bolt. How long will a company armed in this way fight?
