Russian company, Lobaev Arms has created a long-range rifle capable of eliminating targets at distances of up to four kilometers. The rifle, built like a Ferrari or Porsche, was made piece by piece, with a focus on the firearm’s power and precision. The SVLK-14 Twilight is a carbon fiber-reinforced “sandwich” of plastic, fiberglass and Kevlar that is specifically made to handle the powerful .408 Cheytac round.
SVLK-14S is a unique sniper rifle showing outstanding performance for more than 6 years at ranges well exceeding 2000 meters. It’s power, accuracy and extreme range in your hands.
The precision characteristics of this model line sound almost unreal and yes, daring. SVLK-14S rifle owners often get sub .2 MOA 5-shot groups. And all this with such powerful round as .408 Cheytac that hardly anybody can make shoot. We could.
Hitting target beyond 3km? Easy! Nice group at 2500m? Yes, with that it’s quite feasible. New world record? She can deliver.

The newer model has a carbon fiber-reinforced “sandwich” of plastic, fiberglass and kevlar that is specially designed for the powerful Cheytac round. A long aluminium alloy chassis is integrated into the stock – to provide increased firmness and stability.

Core of the model is our highly reputable KING v.3 action made to the strictest tolerances in the industry. Precise and unbreakable. KING is aircraft aluminum body receiver with stainless steel threaded insert with stainless steel bolt. This SVL model is intentionally left with single-shot action to provide needed stiffness for Ultra-Long range as well as versatility of having several different boltfaces in one rifle (Cheytac, Supermagnum, Magnum). You don’t machinegun at 2000m, but more rigidity and extra bolts and barrels in other calibers are always good to have.
Sporting new design multi-layered composite stock, made of carbon fiber, Kevlar and fiberglass sandwich. Even more reinforced than before – long and specially shaped aluminum chassis added for more rigidity and use of most powerful cartridges. Cheek-piece mechanism has been also changed towards more shooter friendly design.
What completes the picture is the heavy stainless steel barrel manufactured by LOBAEV Hummer Barrels by the highest standards of the world of shooting. With these barrels the shooting that was previously only at the edge of possible is now possible. Those who have tried confirm it.
