    The slung rifle in photo 1 is interesting; although it has an optic that resembles an SVD, the length of the magazine appears to be more appropriate for a 7.62x39 cartridge, estimating with the eye; it's also unlike an SVD from the front of the receiver to the muzzle. Foreend has an cylindrical shape, perhaps a suppressed weapon.

    Aha, my hunch was right, I poked around on the web in mid-message and found this:
