The SR-3 Vikhr (Russian: СР-3 Вихрь, SR-3 Whirlwind in English) is an assault rifle manufactured by Tula Arms Plant.

OverviewEdit

The SR-3 is a compact fully-automatic assault rifle, and is chambered for the 9x39mm subsonic round. It was designed in the early 1990's and shares many design features of the earlier AS Val. SR-3 rifles are compatible with a suppressor and are often seen with them attached. A newer model, the SR-3M, also features a unique grip that can fold into a recess under the handguard. The 30-round magazines used by the SR-3 are compatible with both the AS Val and the VSS Vintorez.
