    Because those are not frontline sniper rifles. They cost like dozen SVDs, and are overkill for what squad dedicated marksman would use it for. Small amount of those were seen in hands of MVD and FSB but thats all, they are more sporting rifles than for military use.


    Hi there Militarov, by saying this, you are saying that the Russian Armed Forces are cheap(which they are not) and that Russia cannot make long range snipers for the military, just sporting rifles.

    You are basically saying that the west is better than Russia, when it comes to making long range sniper rifles(which I don't think is true).

    there's also another reason. There are now other optics available for the rifle with ad hoc zeroing. In those pictures you have brand new Dedals 8x30-32/8x40 and what looks like 12x50. This allows for the SVD to basically move out of the 600m killzone up to a more respectable 800 with only ammunition and optic swap.

    Also thanks to the Universal mount, the rifle retains its Iron sights, so it doesn't sacrifice anything except some more RUR from the Budget.

    That is good that they are up to 800m kill zone but KoTeMoRe, don't you think, that Russia needs some snipers in the Russian Army(regular army), that can hit targets to 1500m(like most west countries do, I know that they have the 12.7x108 snipers but those are very heavy and make a lot of sound and flash to unmask the shooter).

    I stay completely behind this statement of mine. SVD is fine squad dedicated marksman rifle, one of its qualities is fact its cheap. Infantry squad dedicated marksman rifles are in majority of the armies simply heavy barrel guns based on assault or battle rifles.

    Some examples:

    Germany - HK417/MR308 A3 and G3SG/1 (latter one is becoming rare)
    USA - SDM-R and M21/M25
    Serbia - M76 and M91
    China - QBU-88 and Type 79 (Basically SVD but getting phased out)
    Japan - Howa Type 64
    UK - L129A1
    Turkey - MSG90 and SR-25 (some SVDs too)

    Some countries like Canada and France prefer to issue on squad lvl bolt action sniper rifles but is in my opinion huge waste of money especially on sizeable armies, even worse if conscript based.

    Also Lobaev rifles will never enter military service, at least not existing models, thes are single shot, custom-built bolt-action sniper rifles for fun, target practice and enthousiasts, they have no place in mud. Some were as i said above seen in hands of FSB/MVD units but i doubt more than few dozen were ever obtained.

    Long range anti-material rifles that Russians do actually use are SVN-98, KSVK and OSV-96.

    CheyTac Intervention rifle in .408 CT caliber weigths 14kg. That is 1kg more than OSV96. What would make sense tho is to simply make SV-98 in .338 Lapua or some similar caliber Russians are fond of to fill the gap.
