The 'Kivik' is the Red Star mainline sniper rifle. A fierce hitter, it is deadly in the hands of a trained sharpshooter.
Unlike the M1000, the Kivik is a bullpup weapons, which makes it a shorter weapon overall.
The KVK is said to be not quite as accurate as the Western Coalition M1000, owing to slightly lower standards of machining technology of the Red Star Alliance.
However, if so the differences are so minimal they may as well be non-existent, and it is well known that in a sniper-on-sniper encounter, the determining factor will be the skill of the sharpshooter.-- Field Guide text entry
