The actual VSS Vintorez is a 'Special Sniper Rifle' Developed in Russia during the late 1980s, the VSS Vintorez is still produced by Tula Arsenal. The name Vintorez literally means "thread cutter," and the rifle is a suppressed sniper rifle. Its primary use is to arm units for high security operations. This is why the rifle can be quickly stripped down, which makes it easy to transport the gun in a customized case.
One of the key features of the VSS Vintorez is the suppressor, which is wrapped around the barrel. The gun is semi-automatic and is standardly used with a 10-round magazine. It is used with subsonic ammunition, which is very effective at piercing body armor without a sonic boom. This functionality has made the gun a standard part of covert operations for Russian Spetsnaz units and MVD Internal Troops over the last 20 years.
