We have just landed these exciting new rifles straight from Izhevsk, Russia!
The Tigr is a civilian version of a world-known rifle, the Dragunov SVD, which was developed in 1963 for Soviet army and been in service ever since, used by more than 35 countries. It is an excellent hunting rifle with an excellent reputation for reliability and durability.
The rifle's receiver is milled to provide additional accuracy and torsional strength. It bears a number of similarities to the AK receiver, such as the large dust cover, iron sights, and lever safety selector, but these similarities are primarily cosmetic in nature. The rifle is fed from a detachable 5-round box magazine.
The semi-free floated barrel’s bore is chrome-lined to increase corrosion resistance and features 4 right-hand grooves. In the 1960s, the twist rate was 320 mm (1:12.6 in). During the 1970s, the twist rate was tightened to 240 mm (1:9.4 in), which reduced the accuracy of fire with sniper cartridges by 19%. This adaptation was done in order to facilitate the use of tracer and armor-piercing incendiary ammunition since these bullet types required a shorter twist rate for adequate stabilisation. The Tigr has an original twist rate of 320 mm.
Styled with a beautiful two-piece wooden furniture set. A ventilated handguard, and a detachable cheek rest on the buttstock. The Tiger 7.62 version 05 is patterned after the SVD sniper rifle and is equipped with a fixed skeletonized shoulder stock made from laminated wood. Forend is made from laminated wood as well. The rifle is provided with adjustable iron sights and a side rail on the receiver which is used to mount various optical sights.
