A 12,7 mm DShK submachine gun has been converted into a high-precision sniper rifle by volunteers. In a matter of seconds, the rifle can be transformed back into a submachine gun, thus making it a highly versatile firearm.

Tests performed on a firing range of the 81st Airmobile Brigade revealed that the rifle has a high penetration capacity, being capable of piercing through an MTLB, a light-armored multipurpose tow vehicle, from 1 kilometer away.

Not only have the rifle’s stock and sniper sight have been upgraded, but also a muzzle brake, which is essential for dampening the recoil and increasing precision.

According to the military, the rifle has a great potential due to its versatility and ease of upgrade, and also because large-caliber submachine guns of this kind are in extremely short supply at the frontline.
