The Pindad SPR (abbreviation from Indonesian : Senapan Penembak Runduk, Sniper Rifle) is a sniper rifle produced by PT. Pindad, Indonesia. This gun allows the shooter to adjust the height of the position and stability by regulating the bipod of the rifle located on the bottom front of the handguard. The SPR is available in three variants. The SPR-1 and SPR-3 are chambered for the 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge while the SPR-2 is chambered for the .50 BMG cartridge.[1]

History[edit]

This rifle was created to answer the needs of the Indonesian military who would use a sniper rifle with a higher capacity and a more affordable price.[2] than other sniper rifles like the Serbian Zastava M93 Black Arrow by Zastava Arms.
