Video: SVD Dragunov Sniper Rifle

David Fortier and I take a look at the SVD Dragunov sniper rifle. The SVD Dragunov is one of the most prolific sniper rifles on the modern battlefield.

The SVD in this video belongs to gun writer Marc Vorobiev who is also an Afghan war vet who served in the Soviet military during the 1980's.
