The K-11 is a dedicated Armenian-originated sniper rifle influenced in its design by the Soviet-era AK-74. It relies on a manually-actuated bolt-action system and was designed in 1996, seeing only limited manufacture by Garni-Ler (with assumed issuance to Armenian special forces). Overall length is 920mm with a barrel measuring 415mm long. Weight is 3.5 kilograms. The K-11 is chambered to fire the 5.45x39mm round. This cartridge was introduced in 1974 by the Soviets (for the new AK-74) and remains a popular intermediate round for many Soviet-Russian-designed guns as well as those of former Soviet allies. Feeding is by way of a 10- or 30-round detachable box magazine (including the standard AK-74 types) and sighting is through a standard telescopic fit (4X PSO-1).

The rectangular receiver is slab-sided as in the AK-74 and there is a perforated wooden forend to protect the supporting hand from a hot barrel. The barrel assembly is free-floating in the design to help increase accuracy - which means that the assembly does not touch the stock along any point of its length - instead connecting directly to the receiver. The wooden shoulder stock is 'skeletonized' as a weight savings measure. The magazines take on the usual AK-style curved appearance. The bolt handle is set to the right side of the weapon at the cartridge ejection port. The trigger group is set in its traditional place under the receiver and ahead of an angled pistol grip handle.

The K-11M is a modified version with increased use of polymers and other slight improvements.
