A bolt-action rifle with an 18.5” long barrel. Chambered in .44 Magnum, the classic but distinct Ruger rotary magazine only holds 4 rounds. They do not come from the factory with a scope. Interesting rifle, the .44 Magnum is already a tested and proven hunting cartridge in large revolvers. You also see lever-action rifles in that caliber but not too often a bolt-action.
The civilian model of the M14, this M1A has a stock with the selector switch cutout. You can buy a “fake” selector switch to install for that complete Vietnam-era look. I saw a standard Springfield Armor M1A at a Sports Authority when I went to see what kind of ammo was left. Employee had just brought it out to fill an empty spot on the gun rack and someone pointed to it and bought it.
A Turkish sniper with an SVD. Aside from the gigantic optic, note the very bizarre bipod. It clamps onto the receiver like the original SVD bipod but the legs are farther ahead. Not sure if that is a Turkish design or not.
Dragunov SVD (A Hungarian soldier training with an SVD. Many former Com-Bloc nations fielded the SVD among other Soviet weaponry. Current military shifting has older equipment being replaced by NATO standard firearms.)
Sniper march… (Female Soviet soldiers on the march with their Mosin Nagan 91/30 rifles. Note that some of them are equipped with the PU scope, whereas others are not.)
Old and new… (Russian soldier, supposedly from the VDV (Airbone Troops) with a Mosin Nagant PU and the VSS Vintorez sniper rifles. Probably testing at a range or facility. You may still encounter the Mosin Nagant in the Middle East; it’s a reliable, simple design.)
