A&k svd ?

Hey guys,

Thinking of getting the A&K SVD, it is around 100 quid.

It shoots @450+ FPS with 0.2g bbs.

If I do decide to get this weapon, what adjustments shouldI make, and what upgrades should I buy. If anyone has experience with this weapon please let me know. Please let me know if there any better stock weapons at the same-ish price.

Thanks.

A&K M24 is a nice option at the same price point.

Cheers, I'll check that one out. Is there any personal preference between the two? Or have you had any experience in either? Thanks

Here is a review of the A&K M24:

https://www.airsoftsniperforum.com/36...24-review.html

I own both the SVD and the M24, and I prefer the M24. In stock form, the rifle performs quite well. The SVD needed custom parts from the get go to work properly. Both look extremely nice, with a nod to the SVD for closly resmbling the actual real steel SVD.

Ah right, awesome. I'll be going for the m24 then, IMO, it look's cooler, and is cheaper too. What website did you use to order from? And if you don't mind, what upgrades have you made? Thanks once again!

For upgrade-ability, I would look at the JG BAR-10, as it is a 100% copy of the VSR-10 from Toko Marui, and you can find vast amounts of replacement parts to make that rifle "reach out and touch someone" The BAR-10 can be had for about the same cost of the SVD and the M24 from A&K.

Would you say the JG BAR-10 is worth getting over the m24 and svd?

Realistically the m24 is gameable out of the box. I can't think of any vsr clone like that.

They aren't perfect but they are stone ax reliable.

Well, most bolt action spring guns are reliable, as in they shoot a bb if you cycle the bolt and pull the trigger (assuming the mag isn't empty), the A&K M24 is no exception. It's a decent clone, but I don't see it having an upper hand over the BAR 10 for example.

You won't hit a thing with it unless you've worked on the internals. That goes for all guns, even a genuine TM VSR. I wouldn't call any sniper rifle "gameable" out of the box.

It doesn't matter if you can hit a man sized target at 60 yards. AEGs can do that too, but with a lot more firepower. You need something that can hit a man sized target at at least 80 yards if you really want to consider it "gameable".

But that is my opinion...

I'm with Tactical. Go with the BAR 10 and upgrade it.

If you're not certain on the style of gun you want, a type 96 may be interesting too. They're cheaper to build because they already come with a 90 degree trigger. You may also want to read this

That's the thing with the m24. It has a 90 degree trigger, aluminum pisto, shoots +450fps and the hop takes vsr buckings.
Its not magic, but you will spend more on a decent trigger and piston for a vsr then the m24 costs out of the box. With free/cheap mods it can be a 75 yard gun.

Fair point. Still needs an upgraded barrel group to perform though

For OP:
I had an A&K SVD spring, the one at $100 and it was rubbish. You definitely have to change the hop-up chamber and the barrel housing. It is very hard to cock.
A plus is that it uses AEG parts. Don't get fooled that it has lots of fps.
I suggest you buy and electric one. The real steel version is a semi DMR-ish kind of weapon and I like to keep it that way in airsoft too.

For another selling point on the BAR-10; it is much lighter to carry into a game than the A&K M24. I am making no assumtions that you are weak, I'm just saying the A&K M24 is heavy... and you will rely greatly some sort of support when carrying or shooting her.

I would own the BAR-10 if the damn thing did not look like such a TOY!!! But with out a doubt, it is a much more reliable platform to build from. Leave the A&K M24's to me, they too are toys, but they do not look like one!
