Russian weapons company Lobaev Arms showed off their latest sniper rifle, the SVLK-14S, in Russia's Kaluga region, Thursday. Vladislav Lobaev, the founder and chief designer of the company, said that no other manufacturer in the world can match the SVLK-14S for accuracy at long range.

The firearm is a bolt-action single-shot rifle designed for maximum performance accuracy using .408 Cheyenne Tactical (.408 CheyTac) rounds. It can consistently hit the target at ranges of 2,000 metres (6,560 feet) and 2,300 metres (7,545 feet).

The weapon has now passed the first stage of production tests for long-range rifles, and was seen Thursday hitting the target every time with groups of five and 10 shots at a distance of 2,000 metres.

The SVLK-14S uses new Kazan Sunar slow-burning powder in its powerful 408 CheyTac cartridges. Its aluminium body has a stainless steel threaded insert, along with a stainless steel bolt and barrel. The rifle sports a new multi-layered composite shoulder-stock made of carbon fibre, Kevlar and fiberglass.
