9 mm Special Sniper Rifle VSS

9 mm Special Sniper Rifle VSS

The special sniper rifle is intended for noiseless and flameless shooting.
The rifle is equipped with an optical sight also it is possible to install a night sighting device.
The automatic reloading is effected by the energy of powder gases. The firing and trigger mechanism of a striker type allows to deliver both single-shot and automatic fire.        
The design features of the sniper rifle are:
- the original design of the barrel allows to achieve high characteristics in the accuracy of fire and closely-grouped fire;
-  the subsonic speed of a bullet and its high hitting effect;
-  a silencer ensures noiseless and flameless shooting;
- a quick assembling into three parts makes it comfortable to carry the rifle secretly (in a special bag or case);
- the presence of safeties makes the rifle harmless in handling and prevents making any shots even if the trigger is accidentally pulled or the rifle is dropped or hit when the barrel bore is not locked.
The advantage of the sniper rifle is the presence of a detachable double-column sector-type magazine with the cartridges located in a chess-board order and interchangeable with AS and AM magazines.
The 9-mm armor-piercing cartridge SP6 and 9-mm sniper cartridge SP5 are used for the shooting.
