Don't know what your definition of good is but your sar-1 should be capable of hitting individual man-sized targets at twice that distance. Sight graduation is a bit optimistic but it has its military uses, like when your target is a group of people.
Kalashnikov-designed weapon that uses AK action and is chambered in 7.62 x 54R is called PKM
Wouldn't call it a sniper rifle but wouldn't wanna stand 500 meters down the range from it.
