Concern Kalashnikov debuted its new VSV-338 high-precision sniper rifle this week during Russia's Army 2016 International Military and Technical Forum, the company announced.

The modular long-range sniper rifle is all-weather and is accurate to a range of about 4,900 feet, the Concern said in a statement.

The units are assembled on an aluminum alloy base plate, enabling the shooter to change the barrel quickly.

It is equipped with a side-folding buttstock with an adjustable pull and cheek riser, as well as height-adjustable rear support.

Also this week, Kalashnikov introduced a prototype of its SVK semi-automatic sniper rifle.

That compact weapon is designed in two modifications: one uses the standard Russian 7.62x54R cartridges, while the other uses the world's most common cartridges, the NATO standard 7.62x51.

It is currently undergoing manufacturer trials.

SVK designers received feedback on the prototype from active-duty snipers.

Concern Kalashnikov is the country's largest manufacturer of a range of precision weapons.
