It's certainly a pricy rifle, but for its uniqueness I can understand that. My main concern, with my limited technical knowledge, is that the Cylinder to barrel ratio will be attrocious.

You have the limited cylinder of the AS01 system, combined with a 610mm barrel (Shop link below as a source for technical specs) And i think eve a NEMO kit won't be viable of you want to fire 0.40's and above.


As far as i can tell that pretty much only leaves a HPA system as a solution to generate enough power to sling heavy bb's. That gives us the issue of air-line routing and Co2/HPA tank storage.

From what i can tell from avialable photos and footage, the Locking pin (which is the default exit for HPA lines in Mancrafts' AS01 HPA conversion-kit) is different between the SV98 and the original AS01. So basically the default routing may not work with the sv98.

(Short clip from the Mancraft installation guide linked to illustrate the locking pin issue https://youtu.be/kOgYXXBKS2s?t=414 )

So the question is what other options are available in terms of HPA conversion for this rifle?

Then the is the issue of upgrading the barrel. Is it possible to find other 610mm VSR-type precision barrels out there, or what solution would you guys go with for upgrading the inner barrel? 590 mm or 640mm?
