Description

The 7.62 mm SVDM is a modernized version of the combat-proven SVD with improved performance.

The SVDM is designed to engage enemy personnel and other unarmored targets at ranges up to 800 m.

It features reliable gas-operated action with a short-stroke piston and gas regulator.

It is different from the SVD in having all wooden parts replaced with plastic ones, a folding skeletonized buttstock with an adjustable heel and a removable cheek riser to make using scopes easier, and an ergonomic pistol grip that is no more an integral part of the buttstock.

Any type of 7,62x54R rounds can be used for firing the SVDS, but the best accuracy is achieved with special sniper cartridges.

Scopes or night-vision sights can be mounted on a Picatinny rail on the dust cover.

The rifle has backup iron sights and a bayonet mount.
