Says its a F as 90, which is indeedy a select fire.

"The most accurate Kalashnikov" is a pretty good description. My favorite was the StGw 57 which a man stopping 7.5 round. Standard drill for fire support was to shoot one finger higher than the assaulting soldiers if you were shooting from a tripod, and two fingers higher without the tripod. Effective range: 600 meters, practically as good as a M-21 or a Dragonov sniper rifle.
