Snow Wolf Released an SV-98

As far as I'm aware, this quite literally was just posted within the past couple days or maybe a week. Don't know a thing about it other than it looks to use the L96AWS system (unfortunate), but hey, it's another unique rifle!

Really interesting option for sniping... not sure about the platform, i'm still quite the neofite, but will follow news for sure

Interesting... looks like a SV-98, except for the receiver and bolt that are definitely L96 style. But the magazine seems to be feed ramp style.

I celebrate that we finally have a Russian BASR available in airsoft, but knowing Snow Wolf this probably means some weird, proprietary system impossible to really upgrade... Time will tell. Can't wait for the first reviews to know what's actually inside of it

If we're lucky it probably would be some weird hybrid using L96AWS' feeding system but the hop up/cylinder assembly of the Type 96, but I'd put my money on it being some weird system or a straight up AWS clone (which isn't too awful but still not a great choice) with a new stock design.

Speaking of Snow Wolf it seems they are stepping their game as well. Their recent Kar98 bolt action rifle is pretty good, though cylinder volume is garbage (even smaller than the notoriously tiny TM M40A5) the rifle used VSR barrel groups and a pseudo-TDC using a lever for adjustment +similar to most rifles, but put directly above the chamber and right below the sights, with an actually pretty impressive overall build especially considering it's price point. Not a gun you'd want to use on a field where everything goes, but an excellent replica for WW2 mil-sims for its practicality (a rare non-gas, non-shell ejecting, purely manual rifle with pretty okay performance).
