"Update to my previous review.
At the time of my first review, I had only had the gun for a few days and hadn't even skirmished with it, in addition to being a noob at the time.
From the beginning, I had double feeding issue, and an issue where it would not fire every few rounds, in addition to making a very loud sound occasionally when fired that sounded like something slamming against something else. However, at the time, the gun fired most of the time, so I ignored these issues.
After about a month, the weapon began to fail even more, hardly firing 50% of the time, but being a noob and using black bb's, I did not notice even though I was getting no kills (Which I attributed to being a noob).
The hop up is nigh impossible to get to, so accuracy was skewed, but it did shoot hard and accurately when it actually did not double fire or misfire.
I stopped using it when I got a tri shot airsoft gun.
I used it again about a week ago, and it would not fire 90% of the time. I just wanted to test it out. When I brought it back inside, the stock fell off. Both the stock receiver on the gun and the stock had broken.
I do not know if I got a specifically bad gun, though this is likely because it had problems immediately. But just based off of my gun specifically, I have to give it two stars. "I've had this gun for a year and a half now. I waited to write the review, because I wanted to see how it worked over time and I was not disappointed!! This gun shoots very hard at a minimum of 470 fps with .2 gram bb's. ( evike chronoed it for me) it is very solid and the only plastic parts are the stock and hand hard, but I haven't even had any problems with them either. I'd recommend bb's higher than .3s because I use .3s and the hop up still curves them too high fully unadjusted.
All parts are metal except hand guard and stock
Shoots above 470 fps
Accurate (even with iron sights)
Tons of replacement and upgrade parts
Takes aeg springs
Easy take apart(one lever)
Very hard to cock (I reccomend extended charging handle)
Safety doesn't prevent bolt from moving(just doesn't let it fully cock gun)
Over all an amazing starter sniper rifle for beginners or veterans!!! "Pros:
-Shoots straight, hop up came in perfectly adjusted. Would recommend anything above a .25 and below a .30.
-Durable/Sturdy, nothing feels like it will break on this weapon.
-Magazine feels sturdy, it is not a high cap of any kind, no winding required
-Easy cleaning, low maintenance.
-Mag wobbles a bit
-Mag does not hold 60 rounds, probably closer to 30 or 40.
-Double feeds frequently which can easily screw up your next 10 or so shots and dirty the internals of your gun
-Bolt pull is a bit heavy, after maybe 150 or so pulls it got easier. After it gets much easier, the extended bolt handle really doesn't matter. Just use a glove 'til it gets looser.
-Front sight tends to drop at random times. It's adjustable with a wrench, but I just taped it from the bottom to stop it from dropping. Read More Reviews Write a Review

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.
