Pindad SPR (Senapan Penembak Runduk) History

The Pindad SPR (abbreviation from Indonesian: Senapan Penembak Runduk, Sniper Rifle) is a family of sniper rifles made by Pindad. The 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, the SPR-2 is chambered for the . 50 BMG cartridge and the SPR-4 is chambered for the . 338 Lapua Magnum cartridge.

he SPR-2 was publicly shown in 2007 to visitors, including Vice President Jusuf Kalla.

The SPR-4 was unveiled by Pindad in October 2017 when the company announced it alongside the production of a new ammunition facility with a loan granted by Penyertaan Modal Negara or State Capital Participation to VIPs, including President Jokowi. It is being marketed to India in cooperation with Bhukhanvala Industries to market it for future contracts to the Indian military and law enforcement agencies.
