The modernized version SR.3M is designed with a barrel length of only 136 mm for special SP5 and SP6 9x39mm cartridges with a muzzle velocity of 310 m/s. This makes the weapon compact and convenient in short-distance combat, e.g. in dense urban areas.

"The main feature of the assault rifle is its removable silencer, which allows transforming an assault rifle for short-range combat into a full-fledged sniper rifle in the field, capable of effectively hitting targets at distances of over 300 meters. The reliability and ease of use of the weapon, as well as the ability to install special equipment such as night and sniper sights, make our weapons famous and popular all over the world. Rosoboronexport has signed a new supply contract for the SR.3M assault rifles with a foreign partner," reported the Rostec Weapons cluster.

The modernized compact assault rifle SR.3M is designed to engage targets protected with personal body armor, as well as non-armored vehicles. The weight of the assault rifle with a silencer and a magazine for 30 rounds is 3.2kg.
