This video from 2016 shows US, Latvian and other troops firing the Zastava M76 and M91 rifles. Some may call them sniper rifles but they are more DMRs to me. It’s always interesting to see rifles in practical use and hear some of the coaching going on. Please note that these are like giant AK rifles that are oversized to handle the larger rounds. In contrast, the Dragunov is a different design including: A short stroke piston that is separate from the bolt carrier, ,the bolt carrier does not have any provision for a piston so it has far less mass, the trigger is in a removable cardtridge and the operating spring is mounted in a locking dust cover.
