SKS is a decent hunting rifle I am told by a friend -- never used my Russian for anything but punching holes in paper plates.

The Medved is based off of the Dragunov according to Wikipedia. I'm not going to pretend I really know anything about Russian rifles. My GoogleFu delivered me the Medved rifle.

Found a reference to a story about them--but the link wouldn't open.

"Several rifles look like they were based off of the Winchester 100 action."
