Ukraine Special Forces are rocking some nifty Western accessories on their Soviet firearms. A reader from Russia noticed this SVD and asked me what the rail system was. I told him I have no idea. Do any readers know? Looks cool whatever it is. Here are a few more photos from VoenProm

    Like the But Stocks and on the SVD the unirail for the scope. But the hand guard rails still suck no matter what fire arm its on.

    Most of the rails, mounts ect. are being made domestically as is the dragonuv rails. All kinds of stuff is being produced there including full ar10 rifles, suppressors, AT missiles, tanks, armored cars, drones ect. After being denied exports for arms by most western countries (contrary to popular belief in Russia) we have bent over backwards not to a sell them a single useful weapons system, ammo, or means to make them. Ukraine has developed a cottage industry of war materials production on the cheap.
