I got this gun a while back as it provided me with just what I wanted. An SVD (my personal favorite gun of all time), semi-auto feature, and a quality, beautiful rifle. I am very pleased with everything there is to it, and I've even done a little modification myself to make it that much better. This gun works great with .30g bbs and allows for quick followup shots like a true DMR should.
P.S. If anybody's wondering, the NcStar scope mount works great for mounting any standard scope.
-Materials are quality. Plastic/polymer parts are sturdy, the body and barrel are metal.
-Has a semi and full-auto feature, although I would never use full auto
-I've gotten decent range out of it (upwards of 200 ft shots under good conditions and a little overhop)
-Mag doesn't shake around too much but still holds plenty of bbs and feeds great
-The front sight can get a little wobbly once in a while (not very much, but I'm a perfectionist). This is easily fixable with a turn of screw on the underside.
-Trigger response is a little slow with an 8.4v
-Probably not going to be able to get a 9.6v in there. I did it once but I could literally see the battery bending so I took it out
