Kalashnikov Concern is set to deliver just over two dozen SV-98 bolt-action sniper rifles to the Russian National Guard.

“The National Guard has signed a contract worth RUB 8 million [USD 128,020] for 26 SV-98 sniper rifles with the Kalashnikov Group. The firearms will have been delivered to the customer by 20 November,” an unnamed source told Russian state-owned agency TASS.

The Russian National Guard will reportedly get the latest variant of the SV-98, which is chambered in 7.62x54R and features a 25.5-inch barrel. Built on an aluminum chassis, the rifle also includes an adjustable skeletonized buttstock; two MIL-STD-1913 rails for attaching accessories; and a 1P69 Hyperon 3–10×42 riflescope.

In addition, this rifle has an overall length of 50 inches; overall weight of 12.1 pounds; and trigger pull of 2.2 to 3.3 pounds. It also comes with a quick-detachable suppressor, and a bipod. A monopod is integrated into the lower part of the buttstock, TASS reported. Fed from a 10-round magazine, the rifle is designed to be accurate out to 1,000m.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
