"Love it.

The accuracy is good enough to hit human sized targets from over 300 feet away using .42s. Using .42s the FPS will crono at 330, very impressive for that weight.

The battery compartment is my only real complaint, It takes long stick type batteries
and getting them in can be troublesome. You'll definitely want a 9.6 battery or LiPo for it. Using lower can cause slow firing response or weird instances where you pull the trigger, it makes some noise, but nothing happens, you pull again and it fires near instant.

"this was my first airsoft gun that I purchased for field airsofting. It is a GREAT gun, it only shoots semi auto but the gun makes up for it in range, accuracy and power. I used .32 high polished bbs and it could shoot way farther than any of my friends guns(mainly echo 1 m4s and another sniper) even on a dead battery, it also was spot on and left some nice welts. I highly recommend this gun to anyone looking at purchasing a sniper or for field use.

"Right off the back I can say this gun is amazing. This gun is extremely powerful and accurate, once you get the scope sighted in and the hop up dialed in you will be a long range semi-auto killing machine. I do however have a few gripes with it. The weaver mount I bought to place a scope on it ( I really didn't want to spend $120 on a PS01 scope) was off by just a bit. It was a fairly easy fix, I just put a small piece of plastic on the bottom of the scope right to lower the sight picture. After that it was perfect. My second gripe with the weapon is the hop up adjustment, not the hop up that's amazing, but the adjustment is a little finicky and tough to get used to. Lastly gripe number three is the battery storage. I understand that there is not many places to put a battery on the SVD but the way one needs to split the hand guard to place a stick type in is a little bit tedious. Do not let these little things steer you away from this gun, they are all minor and insignificant. I could go on for days about how good this weapon is, but I will just sum it up in the pros.

Pros:
Dead on accurate
Powerful, defiantly and outdoor weapon
Metal construction is rock solid
Durable ( I have dropped it in the snow a couple times )
Looks so good and intimidating
Bolt is nice and crisp
Hop up is very good quality, accurate to at least 250 feet if not more

Cons:
Mount I bought was off by a bit but was an easy fix
Battery compartment is a little frustrating
Hop up ADJUSTER WHEEL (hop up is perfect though)

Summery: STOP EVERYTHING AND BUY IT NOW

"the best svd ive bought so far. for starters ive hit a person about 300ft away straight out of the box with no modifications i think the range is incredible. does come with two mags not one and in my opinion the stock battery works fine but feel free to change it if need be. hop up worked fine on mine but ive heard some problems with having to loosen a screw to turn it up the whole way however, this didnt happen with mine. Mine shoots about 460 with .28g bbs over 500 with .20g. This does use the cyma mags sold here on evike not a&k or king arms, but its pretty much an upgraded cyma so thats to be expected. I have an airsoft pos1 and real steel posp scope both worked fine no problems attaching to rail. Just a little fun fact it does fit my real svd bayonet, however i dont recomend using it while playing.....but i do....just for looks... i would recomend this gun to beginners that want a really nice gun that doesnt need upgraded and even long time players. There is no wood kit but if you want one get the wood cyma and upgrade the fps and hop up yourself if you know what you are doing. over all very pleased with this one of my favorite guns ever

pros. shoots 460 with 28g over 500 with 20g (good for outside)
hits over 300 ft.
good right out of the box tops any other svd on the market so far
semi auto sniper
no upgrades needed
accurate i can shoot the head off a dandelion


cons. there is no real cons however some pros can be listed as cons
high fps for most fields
well thats it but id hardly call that a con just get a weaker spring for your field if need be

"This is the best gun ever! Got it yesterday and i love it. PLEASE NOTE THAT MINE CAME WITH TWO MAGS UNLIKE SAID IN DESCRIPTION circa 07/25/12
Lets start out with pros and cons.

Pros: Supreme Accuracy and Range! (So far i have used .25s but i am going to buy Echo 1 .28s today), the semi auto is very nice and awesome trigger response and i am using the 8.4 stick battery that came with it. This gun is amazing!

Cons: NONE! Except that i had a little bit of a hard time putting the battery in but that happens with everybody's first try. Check out Brian from Echo 1 USA's video on the CSR and everything will make sense!


LOVE THIS GUN
