The SV-98 Sniper Rifle was designed in 1998 and is chambered in 7,62x54mmR. The SV-98 is equipped with iron sights (shrouded front and an up to 600 m (656 yd) in 100 m (109 yd) increments adjustable tangent-type rear sight) and a Picatinny rail on top of the receiver that can be used to mount Russian and foreign made telescopic sights and other aiming optics with an appropriate rail interface system. According to several internet sources a standard telescopic sight used on this rifle is the PKS-07 7x fixed magnification scope. The manufacturer however states the Russian made 1P69 3-10×42 variable magnification telescopic sight with a sighting range of up to 1,000 m (1,094 yd) is used as standard day light optical sight. The 1PN113 3.7x fixed magnification night sight is used as the standard low light optical sight.
