Legion USA partsПродается

For the discerning Dragunov owner, Izhmash offers "hand-built" rifles from its Legion division. This would be comparable to a gun manufacturer's "custom shop".

LEGION Ltd. produces and sells firearms of improved quality based on products built by Izhevsk Arms Factory. Firearms produced by Legion feature high quality, artistic treatment (custom engraving, incrustation) and deluxe finishes.

All the rifles are selected for their accuracy and all the visible metal parts are carefully detail polished. Bolt carriers and triggers are chrome-plated and wood stock parts are made of walnut and oil polished.

Legion Tigr Mod 03

Tigr model 03 with the Monte Carlo style butt stock.

Legion Tigr

This rifle is owned in Russia and features custom Legion wood stocks and NPZ PSO-1M2 scope. The "HAND MADE" in English engraving is interesting. Since all guns are hand made the term must have a different connotation to Russians. A more accurate enscription might be "Assembled with greater care".

Russian Tigr

Another Legion Tigr owned in Russia and set up for high-accuracy target shooting.

7.62x53 Izhmash Tigr

This Tigr chambered for 7.62x53 uses a cartridge designed in Finland. Many people assume 7.62x54R is the same thing as 7.62x53 and an internet search will turn up many discussions with that claim. However this may not be the case. This article states that 7.62x53R uses a .308 bullet and a shorter case. If so, it might be dangerous to use the wider and longer 7.62x54R in a rifle not chambered for it.

If you are unsure what to use, slugging the bore may help.

However, according to Barnaul Ammunition both calibers are the same:

"Out of all of the high powered cartridges, the 7.62x54R is one of the most popular in Russia.

Some hunters have been confused because there have been varying marking on the package, case bottom and stamps: 7.62x53: 7.62x53R: 7.62x54: 7.52x54R. This happened because the 53.72 mm case length was rounded off differently in various countries. After Russia became a member of the European Permanent Coordinated Commission, the final name - "7.62x54R" - of the cartridge was accepted. "

The hand guard is generally not a good place to mount the bipod due to placing pressure on the barrel, but it looks cool.
