The SV-99 is a special operations (SPECOPS) minded, highly-portable small-caliber sniping solution promoted by Kalashnikov of Russia. The rifle is of "straight-pull", bolt-action design chambered in 5.6mm (.22LR) with a barrel measuring just 351mm and an overall unloaded weight of 4.0 kilograms. The barrel can be capped by an optional suppressor assembly allowing for clandestine operation when needed and the Picatinny section over the frame promotes mounting of various sighting devices to enhance precision at-range. The skeletal buttstock is wholly-adjustable at the cheekpiece and heel and completely detachable from the frame. A folding bipod assembly can be affixed under the forend as a forward support. The trigger unit (single-action, striker-based) sits in an oblong loop under the frame in the usual way.

The SV-99 was developed specifically with the SPECOPS sniper in mind with its lightweight design, relatively small footprint, and caliber capable of neutralizing sentries and other unsuspecting targets out to a range of 100 meters. The free-floating barrel design allows for additional accuracy while the optional suppressor adds a level of concealment for the unit. The stock is completed in lightweight polymers while pertinent components and housings are of heavy-grade steel.

Overall length is 890mm with the stock extended and 530mm otherwise. Feeding is by way of a 5- or 10-round magazine inserted into the underside of the frame.©MilitaryFactory.com
