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 four variants. The SPR-1 and SPR-3 are chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO cartridge[2] , the SPR-2 is chambered for the .50 BMG cartridge and the SPR-4 is chambered for the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge.

Variants[edit]

SPR-1[edit]

The SPR-1 is a single-shot sniper rifle chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO cartridge. Referred to as a "Precision Tactical Rifle" by Pindad, the SPR-1 is in fact essentially a well-made version of a locally-available hunting rifle (probably based on the Remington 700), brought to military/police sniper standards. Changes from the original rifle include the addition of a Harris-type bipod adjustable for height and cant, the addition of an adjustable cheekpiece for the standard thumbhole stock, and a rail for the mounting of various scope rings. (The SPR-1 has no iron sights.) The barrel also has what Pindad refers to as a "muzzle brake," but this merely consists of a pair of angled cuts near the front of the muzzle, and is therefore just a form of porting. Feed is from an internal magazine, with a hinged floorplate for reloading and unloading the weapon. The stock is of laminated, weatherproofed wood, and the metalwork of high-grade steel with a corrosion-resistant finish.[3]

SPR-2[edit]

The SPR-2 is a .50 BMG anti-materiel rifle which is fed from a 5-round box magazine. It is able to penetrate up to 2 centimeters of steel at 1500 meters. This rifle has maximum efective range 2000m [4]

SPR-3[edit]

The SPR-3 is a magazine-fed variant of the SPR-1 sniper rifle. It has an effective range of 700 meters.[5]

SPR-4[edit]

The SPR-4 is a .338 Lapua Magnum magazine-fed sniper rifle. It has an effective range of 1500 meters. And it serve to fulfill firepower gap between SPR-1/SPR-3 and SPR-2.[6]
