||This gun is excellent for the money - and where else are you going to find a full SVD without buying an expensive kit? This gun is an excellent starter platform for making a DMR rifle out of it, and the internals are rock solid:
*The gun has metallic bushings internally
*The gearbox came shimmed, and speaking of gears - they are all Classic Army gears inside. (Marked with C.A on each of them)
*SVD Dragonuv complete, without needing a kit, or spending over 500 dollars for one.
Tack in a higher rated spring, a better piston head and you are good to go.
Fully Marui compatible, with many aftermarket accessories to compliment the gun.
Cons on this gun are:
*Excessive barrel flex when on the bipod - the barrel raised over 1/8" when placed in the ready position with the bipod attached.
*Creaky Squeaky - the thing creaks like the staircase in a bad horror flick, even after 2 coats of Krylon black. - I'm still looking for a fix for this.
*Outer barrel isn't what I thought it would be - the flashhider is attached to the forward sight - not the barrel itself. This makes modifications tricky.
*The 600 round highcap with the gun broke after the first wind. (Which is fine, the Drag always has the shorter mag anyways)
Overall, I give this gun 5 stars because of it's potential, and how solid the gearbox came.
This gun has much upgrade potential and has quite a future in my armory as a DMR.
