Just had a question about which country has (in your opinion) developed the most technologically advance sniper scope?


I remember hearing something about the use of 'T-Rays' that allowed the viewer to see targets through bushes and tree's..
Will see if I can find a link to this.. is there any new technology that is in the pipeline?


Klep.

The 'best' sniper rifle is a subjective question, its only as good as the person using it. But I've included a link to good site.

I have heard nothing to suggest that the SV-98 will replace the Dragunov...

www.world.guns.ru...

It's mainly a police/counter terror/Spec-ops weapon...

The SVD soldiers on in it's newest incarnation...the SVD-M

OH and to anwer your question...

This is from the www.world.guns.ru forum:



www.horusvision.com it has a flash game explaining its reticule. it has a range finder aswell.i've played the game and the whole system works


that might give you a good impression what are fancy scopes...

as for best sniper rifle, The best Semi-Auto is probably the PSG-1, the best bolt action sniper rifle is probably the DSR-1...

This sniper rifle was developed by IZHMASH (Izhevsk Machinebuilding Plant) and based on proven sporting rifle Record-CISM.
SV-98 has iron sights (shrouded front and adjustable rear) and a scope mount. Standard scope is a Russian-made PKS-07 7X fixed magnification scope. Trigger is "sport-style" and adjustable (standard trigger pull is 1.5-2kg). The wooden stock features an adjustable buttplate and cheek pad; the folding bipods are integral. The manually operated bolt action has a rotating bolt with three frontal lugs. Cold hammer-forged barrel is free-floating, and has a threaded muzzle which can accept sound moderator (special type of silencer intended for supersonic ammunition). Special plastic magazine holds 10 rounds.

SV-98 is in production at IZHMASH and used by various Russian law enforcement and counter-terrorist forces. With match-grade ammunition it shots the 5cm groups at 300 meters, which accounts for sub-MOA accuracy.
