*Scope not included.Matrix A&K SVD II Dragunov Bolt Action Airsoft Sniper Rifle (OD Green)
A variation of the popular SVD Airsoft Sniper Rifle, the SVD II is a joint project between Matrix and A&K to bring you a re-designed reinforced model of the A&K SVD. Matrix had produced their variation of this legendary sniper rifle in all stealthy black furniture. By utilizing a manual cocking, spring powered system they are able to produce very consistent results with every shot. This is a key requirement for any serious sniper rifle. The Airsoft SVD II Dragunov Series comes in three different colors to accommodate any player on any battlefield. As a sniper, you rely on using all elements of stealth to get the job done. The Matrix Airsoft SVD Dragunov Sniper Rifle Series comes in all the colors you'll need to stay hidden and stay on target. The SVD II is 100% compatible with the previous version with capability to handle some extreme upgrade kits that will be released in the future such as the Co2 kit. You may see the Matrix SVD II packaged in the B&W boxes when they are manufactured in Taiwan instead of China now for better quality control and performance.SVD II vs First gen SVD:
The previous version had an inherited issue of excess wobbling and magazine not being a tight fit. The Ver. II has more reinforced parts and enhanced performance. Less gun wobbling and magazines have a tighter fit to resolve the "dropping magazine" issue with the previous version found on many Airsoft guns. To use gen1 mag on genII, you may need to pull the mag release to lock in the magazine, but it will be a much more secure fit perfect for sniping.

"I have had this gun for a year or so and have heavily used it but not with matches.
The M150 is a good spring and is plenty powerful enough, I recommend .32 BBs to .4 BBs
Hop up is located above the chamber, and is the screw closer to the bolt carrier, not the one closest to the handgaurd.
This gun is decently accurate if you have a good scope and properly adjusted hop up and BBs.
It is ALL metal, with hard ABS plastic grip and stock, the stock is sturdy, the cheek pad is not anything great but it works and it is comfy. The sling mount on the gas block and stock are strong, and I have a sling from a camera on it.
Iron sights work pretty good.
Now, there comes the problems.
The magazine is big cap, 60 rnds, but you cannot load it up to 60. I put it at 55 and it still has too high of a pressure, and double feeds. Dont load it with more than 40. Also its REALLY wobbly.
Spring is an easy enough pull, but it gets hard after a while because it is basically an AK-47 charging handle as a bolt handle.
Here is the WORST part. The trigger group.
1. There is a pin that holds the trigger group in, as the SVD was designed to have a removable trigger group. The pin is the biggest one on the gun, the pinhead is what stops the fire selector from traveling too far down. When removed, you can drop the trigger group, and the other side fits into the receiver with a small lip. Basically, that broke off. so now the lip is wobbly so the whole trigger group can be pushed. This makes the sear (the thing that releases the plunger) positioned a bit too high.
2. because of this trigger group being too far up, when the gun is cocked the plunger has enough force on the sear that the force of your pull lifts the bolt carrier INTO the receiver rather than pulling the sear downward. Basically I had to put tape on the sear and trigger mechanics, so that there was enough space for the sear to go down all the way.
Pros: decent accuracy
high capacity even with high pressure mag spring
it's an SVD so it's a space gun
scope rail is very stable, if it's not working blame the mount.
it's really heavy. like, realllly heavy. (if you want a mobile gun, don't get it)
easy spring change
Mag is wobbly and can't hold 60 or it double feeds
Trigger group is fragile and needs tweaking, and results in a very unfortunate trigger issue.
hop-up is hard to adjust, (although you need not take of the scope to do it) Id like it if you didnt need tools to do it.
"The only reason I rated this gun at a three is because of the fact that I (probably) received a lemon. The gun is great besides that one fact.
I've had this gun for a week now and I thought it would be a good idea to write a review. I would like to point out a couple things before getting to the actual review, however, because some things have gone awry.
First off, this "Matrix" SVD arrived in a Aim Top box, and though it has nothing to do with the actual product quality, I thought it was rather weird.
Second, I am pretty convinced the one I have received is a lemon. The stock(which came separated from the main gun) refuses to fit, however I have recently made progress with it and have managed to push it together. The other problem could either be with the actual gun or it could simply be the magazine, but either way the magazine is extremely loose. This leads to misfires almost every time the gun is shot, but when holding the magazine in place the gun fires perfectly. This disappointed me, being that one of the main reasons this gun was made was to improve the fit of the magazines. There has also been a couple random problems within the receiver, but I have chosen not to mess with anything inside as I have contacted the staff at Evike (very wonderful people with pretty darn good costumer service) and am waiting for their insight on what to do next.
Now, onto the highlights of the gun (which there is quite a few)
When it does shoot, this SVD hits hard. It's amazingly accurate even without a scope and it shoots very far. The bolt is reasonably easy to pull back, and it gets easier with time. The gun feels very solid, and looks sexy. Everything I wanted and more (when functioning properly).
Easy to use bolt
Very solid build
It was a Lemon (hopefully)
I will be updating this review as soon as Evike staff get back to me with the news (once again, they're pretty great people). All in all, buy this SVD if you are currently wanting to take the role of a Russian sniper. You'll look great and feel like you're the most powerful player on the field with this gun!
"This is a really good sniper. I put .36g bbs in it and it cantata through about 20 feet of brush and still go about 150 feet. It does double feed occasionally and when you pull the mag out 2 or 3 bbs will fallout. I recommend this to anyone although I do recommend doing some minor maintenance work on it such as the difficulty of the pullback (I used a couple of sticks, duct tape,and oil and it was much better).
