Does anybody know what the hell this is?

Jammie-Wearing Fool has it in a post on the situation in Europe after Russia's invasion of Georgia.

Good post, too.

Gotta be a 7.62x54r rifle(druganov, or PSL clone)

And what the hell is up with that sling?

It's an invitation for target practice.

Yeah, my thought was a Dragunov variant, but with a sling- if that's what it is- attached at the front sight? I can't see enough to tell.

And if he did touch off a round, that sucker on his left isn't going to be hearing out of his right ear for a while.

Sling's wrapped around the front iron sight to keep it out of the way, I reckon.

And that would explain why the silhouette is completely wrong for a Dragunov, which threw me off at first.
