The Zbroyar Z-10 is an all-modern Ukrainian-originated sniper rifle chambered for the ubiquitous full-powered 7.62x51mm NATO-standard rifle cartridge. The weapon is a local evolution of the proven American AR-10 and arranged by Ukrainian concern Zbroyar (established 2004). It is known to be in active use with the 79th Air Assault Brigade, a special forces detachment of the Ukrainian armed services. This unit, and the aforementioned weapon, have been sighted in the ongoing War in Donbass against Russia and its sponsored separatists.

The form and function of this rifle largely mimics that of the modernized Armalite AR-10 including the upper and lower receiver sections. Other components are brought together from other suppliers located abroad to make up this precision-minded battlefield solution. The result is a capable, long-ranged semi-automatic system used to fulfill the sniper and Designated Marksman (DM) role for specialist forces.

The gun has a fully-customizable shoulder stock and a long section of rail is seen over the receiver and handguard components providing mounting points for various optics installations (including night and thermal sighting devices). A hinged, folding bipod can be added under the guard for support when prone or behind a wall. The pistol grip is canted rearwards in the M-16 style and the magazine feed is directly ahead of the trigger group accepting curved detachable box magazines. The trigger sports an oversized ring to allow a gloved hand to be used. The ejection port is set to the right of the frame in the usual way and feeding is by way of a 10- or 20-round box. The muzzle brake is slotted and protrudes a distance ahead of the handguard - a suppressor can be added for clandestine operations.
