In Russian military doctorine snipers perform in two roles, defensively their purpose is to target non commissioned officers as wartime armies struggle to replace them with experienced officers. Offensively they operate as a squads designated marksman, hitting targets spotted by the team.
To be a Russian marskman you must maintain an 80% hit rate against man sized targets at 800 metres during training, your reward is a Mosin Nagant. A very rugged, reliable, accurate, and easy to maintain rifle that has served the Mother Country well since it's inception just before the turn of the previous century.
Wartime Nagants frequently bore tooling marks and scratches as the factories rushed new weapons to completion without the attention to detail and finish synonymous with rifles manufactured in peacetime. Functionally though they are exactly the same.
