[Thread] 1/6 Şer, Şer Portative and Zagros anti-material rifles. The Şer is made by using a KPV/ZPU barrel, a craftmade receiver and bolt. The Şer Portative is the compact version of the Şer. The Zagros is similar, but uses a different barrel from DSHKM and W85 HMGs.

2/6 The Zagros is the first version that appeared in PKK propaganda around 2012 and is named after the Zagros Mountains. The Şer Portative was introduced in summer 2016 because the full size Şer was too big for offensive use and street fighting. The Şer was intro. b/w these dates

3/6 After the introduction of the Şer Portative, the Şer were no longer used. It is unlikely that they have precision ammunition, instead they use normal machine gun ammo, armor piercing and HE. The rifles are mainly used against e.g. SVBIEDs and hardcover (stone walls etc.).

4/6 But the Zagros are also used for longer range engagements and occasionally also against human targets. Most of the rifle scopes used are cheap Chinese and break after about twenty shots on the Zagros and five on the Şer.

5/6 As for precision, in this video hits a Kurdish sniper an ISIS fuel truck at between 800-1000m~ in Syria. That's a long distance for a craftmade anti-material rifle with a machine gun barrel that probably wasn't new.

6/6 Conclusion: For the SDF/YPG they are an important weapon against e.g. SVBIEDs. And an interesting development and such a standardized production of them and their limited resources. But when available, snipers tend to use Western weapons like the M82.
