Dragunov Variations: Military SVD, Izhmash Tiger, Chinese NDM-86



The SVD Dragunov was the Soviet marksman’s rifle that finally replaced the failed attempt to issue the SVT-40 as a precision rifle. It was introduced in 1963, after about 5 years of development, and its scarcity in the United States has led to the development of a loyal and dedicated group of admirers. This, of course, has led to much spirited debate about the relative merits of the different variations of the SVD which have been imported into the US. Today, we will look at three in detail: a genuine Soviet military-issue SVD, a commercial Tiger SVD made in Russia, and a commercial Chinese NDM-86 in 7.62 NATO caliber (a commercial version of the Chinese Type 79/85 military rifle).

While these rifles really have negligible differences in actual shooting and handling performance, they do differ in some details. Specifically:

– firing pin
– gas regulator
– trigger mechanism (safety sear & disconnector)
– bolt machining
– mainspring and top cover
– receiver lightening cut(s)

Enjoy the video, and see the differences for yourself!

  1. When was the first time you heard the word Dragunov?
    For me it was "James Bond 007 Nightfire" the video game, I think… It was definitely a james bond video game, just not sure which one.
    Anyone else?

  2. Always makes me laugh when an organization like the ATF, removes a safety mechanism because the same system is used on Autos. An out of battery safety is actually a pretty good idea, even on a Semi auto. Just because some rifles tend to explode when firing out of battery.

  3. i just googled it, and the price of "Tiger" in Russia is about 1000$ ~ 1200$, and they call it a hunting carbine.

  4. Don't remember what variation but in the 80's I passed up a Dragunov at a pawnshop because they wanted 400 dollars for it. That seemed exorbitant compared to the 80 bucks they wanted for an SKS.

  5. When is an auto sear not an auto sear…proves that BATFE is not the expert,but they are the definitive…Sadly!

  6. You are funny. As ordinary 'designated' sniper I'd take may be one of five or ten SVD as reasonably good. The criteria is a central point. I'm required to hit a catridge from 200m. So I can take you between the eyes in 600m, you can take a cow in 100m – that is the difference between. Good analysis – I was not sure American girls can even shoot that good.
