Russian President Vladimir Putin Tests New Kalashnikov Super Rifle

Russian president Vladimir Putin got his hands on a modern sniper rifle from renowned weapons-maker Kalashnikov.  Putin was seen picking off targets at a distance of 600 meters (656 yards) with the new weapons manufacturer’s new super rifle.

According to Russia Today, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited an exhibition of the Kalashnikov Concern weapons creator in Patriot Park outside Moscow on Wednesday. Putin didn’t just inspect the military hardware and eyeball the new goods. Russia’s president got up-close and personal with a modern SVCh (Chukavin Sniper Rifle).

The SVCh was initially called SVK. Recently, Kalashnikov has renamed the rifle to include the designer’s last name (Chukavin) into the designation of this firearm and revealed more details. Now the rifle is called Chukavin Sniper Rifle or SVCh (Снайперская Винтовка Чукавина – СВЧ) wrote the Firearm Blog. 

A video from YouTube shows Putin firing the sniper rifle.

The SVCh rifle is loosely based on the iconic Russian SVD and another lesser-known weapon by renowned weapons designer Evgeny Dragunov – the “Compact Assault rifle” prototype. Taking the best concepts from both weapons, the SVCh is said to be more accurate and less prone to dislocation of the optics than the SVD, which is the main rifle for the Russian Army’s designated marksmen.

    Nice rifle, unfortunately Putin doesn’t know how to operate it. It’s a semi-automatic rifle that loads another round in the chamber after its fired. So when he pulls back the bolt handle after he fires, you can hear a live shell fall on the table.

  2. Anonymous says:

    Looking at the rifle it doesn’t look like it is designed for long range precision shooting.

    BTW, anyone know why a semi-auto rifle needs to be cocked between shots?

  3. Batfire7 says:

    Nice looking rifle. Wonder if he actually hit the target, nothing said on that……

  4. Maranatha says:

    It’s cool and all, but I want a very powerful air rifle foitr hunting.

    Lewis and Clark had an Italian air rifle and they demonstrated it to tribes on their journey out West. And thus had few issues due to overwhelming technological superiority. The NRA has a video on it.

    Imagine the possibilities if the SHTF. Listen how quiet it is. It’s like a whisper.

  5. Kevin2 says:

    Due to both longevity and availability the AK47/AKM / variants will be used for a long time, likely surpassing the British Brown Bess for theater of operations and years of use.

  6. Dead Meat says:

    And then we get advertising for “airsoft” below???

  7. “First Person”

    An astonishingly frank autobiography.

    Only ten bucks. Always go to the source. See what he has to say before I read a biography written by someone else. That’s my approach to understanding these well known figures of the past and present.

    That photo of Putin is something special.


  8. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    Gun show in my area next month. I’ll be looking for another rifle for long-range shooting, possibly .308 but I’m open to considering other calibers. Any suggestions?

  9. Mungo says:

    I’m calling BS on the 600 meters. When that camera spins and looks downrange, there appears to be no targets beyond 200 meters.

  10. Red Leader says:

    Any idea what caliber the rifle is? By the size of the magazine it may be 7.62 X 54

  11. retired millwright says:

    we are only seeing what the Russians want us to see. In the hands of a good marksman this rifle likely will better most rifles in its class. Putin is a cold Russian bear trap and is modernizing the Russian military quietly while half of America still can’t get over their girl losing the election.

  12. Asshat says:

    People in north and South Carolina have lost everything they own and demonic rats are trying to stop kavanaugh from being confirmed. This is the lead mainstream news story while trump is going to the floods to see what the federal gov can do to help flood victims. The demons don’t care about anything but their agenda at all costs. A vote for a democrat is a vote against yourself. I’ve lived through a flood and it ruins your home you lose almost all your possessions that took years to acquire. It’s a big setback when you already struggle to get by. Takes years to recover.

  13. Chris Bridges says:

    To Bob1,
    I am sure Putin knows perfectly well how to operate it and I am sure he fired one shot at a time for a reason. He was a Lt. Colonel in the KGB and has had plenty of weapons training.

  14. repr sleepr says:

    I’d make a bet that it is a piston gun as opposed to gas tube as the AK uses a piston. If it has a gas block which can very or adjust the bullet gases, to the point you can shut it off, then you do have to operate it just like a bolt gun.

  15. Roger D says:

    The Russian military is modernizing while the US military is cannon fodder for bankers, Zionist Neo-Cons and sexual perverts.

  16. Stuart says:

    While the AK series of weapons is renowned for reliability, the design that gives it that attribute means it has always sucked in the accuracy dept. Therefore, I am glad my potential enemy is using an inferior sniper rifle and I’m also glad he will be supplying it to all his friends. None of which seem to be my friends.

  17. ramp rat says:

    new record for gun violence here in chi-town this a.m.6 month old in car with other family in mothers arms gets two bullets in the gut at close range.badass dad only gets a graze in the head as he unloads on the perps out to kill him.

  18. Sgt. Dale says:

    650 yards a new super sniper???? B.S. I call B.S. Hells bells you can do that with a 03A3 out to 1000 yards. That is 110 year old weapon. Mod 64 and 700 can do the 1000+ standing on there heads. a 338 Lap. and a 50 Call a mile+

    So no super rifle. Hell I’ll take my M1A/M21 all day long and shoot over 600 yards with a 6 to 7″ group. I shot my 300 Win Mag Noreen at 400 yards getting 2.5″ groups. so 600 yards no problem.
