But hunters stubbornly refuse and the old trehlineek or SCS, along with enjoyed and modern self-loading rifles, which were designed based on the AK-74M, the PKK and the SVD. In this series carbine "Tiger" stands out. He is a modified sniper rifle sample of the sixties of the twentieth century, which was the designer of E. Dragunov.

Manufacturers of Izhevsk took into account the features of some international laws and domestic consumer complaints, creating a new modification - carbine "Tiger-1", which appeared side universal mount, "consonant" under most hunting scopes. muzzle flash suppressor-brake was added, which significantly reduced the impact.
