This is a brand new Russian Dragunov SVD.
Relabelled "Tigr" for the Civilian market worldwide, this rifle was made famous in Vietnam War known as the Dragunov SVD. In the hands of the Vietnamese Snipers it was used up to 1000m!!
The only visible differences between the two is the Flash Hider & 10 round magazine replaced with a 5 round mag. The Military version sometimes was offered in a Wooden Stock instead of the synthetic offered here.
This Civilian version also offers better accuracy than the Military version due to more detail taken in the finishing touches.
Gun City was lucky enough to get hold of the last 620mm barrels available from the factory.
The website SniperCentral lists the officially adopted sniper rifles of 61 countries, and the Dragunov represents 23 of them. The next most popular rifle (SSG-69) has only been adopted by 5 nations.
Coming into service in 1963 the Russian rifle has become famous. This rugged and absolutely reliable system boasts a heavy-duty milled receiver that won't stop. The reliability of the system, combined with the semi-automatic rate of fire which allows quick follow-up shots if you miss your target the first time, and the hard-hitting 7.62x54R calibre round all make the Dragunov the ideal long range rifle.
This rifle is a valuable investment, a great collector's piece, and a very fun gun to shoot.
Great Calibre for medium to large sized game especially at long range.
