"let me start off by saying this gun is a beast it functions at a high level, and adds a factor of intimidation with 525 fps. But when playing out doors it would be better to get a heavier round since its so powerful and since your a sniper you need range without the wind resistance.
-easy to strip and upgrade
-can jam if you multi- cock
-small heavy bolt
Over all a good gun "The A&K SVD is an OK gun.
VERY HIGH POWER
Mags are TERRIBLE
Wood furniture costs $100
Misfeeds(double feeds&bbs breaking in loading chamber)
Overall only an OK gun. If the mags actually WORKED i would love this gun. I don't recommend this Gun. "Good gods! This gun is fantastic!
Just got it today, the order went through Monday and it shipped to Indiana in 5 days. Fantastic! Pulled it out of the box and was immediately surprised by the awesome construction. Built like a rock.
Went outside (live in a huge woods) and started shooting. I was hitting targets 25 yards away like it was nothing. (Some I'm sure were farther out, but I do not know their exact distance)
Great gun, great price. Totally worth it. "Ok I've had this gun for a while now and I've played a couple games with it and it's been outstanding!
It's accurate, cool looking, and has good range. I would strongly recommend 28 gram to 30gram BBS because I have 28s and at 75 feet I can hit dead on with my scope.
Best stock sniper under 200$( especially cyber week sale 125$)
Bolt is extremely hard to pull back, even if you think your strong,trust me it hurts after a while
Unless your ripped. I would recommend wearing a hunting shirt( has a padded shoulder) and a jacket.
This is probably only me but when I got my stock the parts holding it to the gun were SHATTERED wtf evike. But I was not going to return it so it just put some gorilla glue on it and it's fine
Overall: it's definitely worth every cent, get this gun while you can, IT'S AWESOME!!!
Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the stock, otherwise I would have given it a five "Just got this sniper today as a Christmas present, my only complaint is that my stock wobbles. However the rest of the SVD is incredibly sturdy and lightweight. The bolt out of the box is quite hard to cock back but you just have to get used to it.
+High Quality Plastic & Metal
+Can be easily upgraded
+Hop up adjustment
+Great paint job
Scope Mount recommendations:
Matrix Steel Precision AK / SVD Type Tactical Scope Mount Base ($20) "Got the gun for christmas and as soon as i checked to see if everything was in the box i noticed how sexy this thing is and i mean it looks awsome... but my happyness was short lived because when i lifted up the gun the stock fell right off and the mounts that are suposse to hold it to the gun are snapped right off :(( so i filled out a rma to send it back and in the mean time i decided to check out the performance of the gun. and again i was amazed by it once i ajusted the hop up for the .4s that i also got with the gun i was hitting not my nabors fence between my house and his but my nabor's, nabors fence between their two houses and ive walked it with a wheel tape before and its 286ft ! i continued to fire and from about 20 shots 16 hit the fence and in aabout a say 5 ft round grouping ... as for more practical sniping at 200 ft i could hit a 3ft wide tree 8 out of 10 times mild wind and i belive that was the main problem aswell as my shotty electical taped stock \:( causeing me to wable..
light (seams like to me anyways im used to saws and other heavy weight guns)
broken stock mine may just be a lemon but i hear alot of wobbly stock storys
not to be a wimp but cocking it after the 200 shots to ajust the finiky hopup made my middle finger swell up and turn purple (wear gloves will totally save your hands)
barrel has no threads
mag still has a little slop in it but from what i heard about the first gen. nothing in comparison and more than likely will not fall out
hop up ajustment not only finiky but annoying to get at plus its a rlly tiny allen and the gun doesnot come with a tool atleast mine didnt
slight forguard wobble
overall the pros totally out way the cons except the fact mine came with a broken stock thats y it deserves only 4 out of 5 stars not evikes fault prolly happend in shipping or the factory and the total pain in the butt hop up "Indeed worth every penny. You get what you pay for with this rifle. Well built, and solid as a rock. Maybe a little play with the trigger, but nothing like a little shimming for that would solve it, but overall, a strong and accurate rifle. 5/5 because of its value. "Great gun for the price.Best stock sniper out there.Does not look like an m28 or l96 either.
Doesn't look like other snipers
Hard to pull bolt.
You need a special scope mount and probably scope
Wobbly stock(Mine pops out on one side occasionally)
Small bolt,you need to pay for a bigger one(?)
Overall I recommend it if your 16+ or just strong. "Let me just say that this gun is a beast. 500 fps right out of the box. All metal except for the handguard and stock, high quality and sturdy, real wood upgrade would make it awesome.
Sturdy plastic parts
Nice sized mag for a sniper
easy to upgrade (wood, scope, spring)
Not that hard to cock
May be hard to cock for some? noobs.
Check out Junglemanairsoft on youtube for a full video review and shooting test! "Sturdy, Efficient, Accurate. I bought AIM AK Scope mount, and it does fit if you take the dust cover off and put it back on after sliding on the mount, but it's not ideal. go with the Matrix QD one instead, or find a legitamate PSO-1 or POSP.
Cocking isn't hard after practice. Middle and Index, between top and middle knuckles, swift movement. I can fire off several shots in succession by doing this. Also it doesn't hurt to silicone lube the rails of the piston beforehand.
Not an L96/M24
Above average internals, last forever
High FPS and easy downgrade/upgrade
Not for the weak
Spring powered (release that gas mechanism, Evike!)
Scope Mounts incompatibility (use either leapers QD or Matrix QD)
Actual scopes are quite expensive (120 clone, 180 real) "Sniper's overkill, whatever you're trying to hit, if it's under 250 feet, then I feel sorry for it. Really a great sexy gun. 480 fps gives it great range and the rumor about cocking it, the spring wears down after awhile. This new version feature and m150 aeg spring, and a 590mm barrel. If you don't want the jg plastic excuse of an svd, or can afford king arms, g&p, or classic army's svd, this is the best choice.
Needs very few upgrades, all you need is a hop up bucker, and a tighbore barrel(optional since the barrel of this gun is so long, and spring(if you think 480-500 isn't enough)
Sexy, 1:1 scale
Very hard to cock(depends) "This gun is very worth the money. I bought it (elsewhere, no pre-order involved while it was still in stock) around July and have had it for around 4 months now.
FPS: 4/5 (480 w/ .20g bb)
Accuracy: 5/5 (can easily hit a head sized target at 40 meters)
Barrel length: Not sure (some where between 550mm and 600mm)
Barrel Compatibility: unsure (too good to need to replace)
Spring Compatibility: Uses standard AEG springs
I have put an M150 AEG spring into mine (which takes about 5 minutes to complete) and the FPS has jumped to around 520 FPS w/ .20g bb's.
General Take Down:
1) Rotate pin above the trigger around the projection that holds it in place so that it points down.
2) Lift the top piece above the bolt off.
3) Take the two hex head screws out of the spring guide
4) Push spring guide forward, then pull up and out
Hop up adjustment:
1) Take off piece above bolt (see disassembly)
2) Pull Bolt back as if to cock
3) Tighten middle hex head screw to "hop up", loosen to "hop down"
Great Stock (performance wise, not the rifle stock)
Nice anodized blue metal hop-up and piston set
A pin that holds the handgaurd and barrel in place fell out of mine in the middle of the woods. I recommend reinforcing this as it is only held in by maybe 1/16th inch.
Best sniper I have ever used stock.
Easily out ranges other upgraded snipers.
Most accurate airsoft gun I've ever shot (my other is an M14 at 434FPS w/ 650mm tightbore).
A must buy if you can find it, but these have been on pre-order for almost a half year now. Displaying
