Raptor released their SV-98 and it's awesome! except for...

You know I love Russian guns and have wanted a proper SV-98 since forever. It seems Raptor finally made my wishes come true with this awesome new gun

As you can see, they payed really close attention to details and made the gun look like a proper SV-98 instead of the "VSR-10 / L-96 in a SV-98 stock" that DIY builds and the one by Snow Wolf implemented.

The price tag is imo excellent for such an endeavour, at just 380 - 400 USD

They even placed the magazine in the right spot without the hassle of a feed ramp and such.

And that should give away the downside immediately... The system they used for that is the Amoeba, which is known to be a PITA to upgrade due to the really small cylinder.

So there's that... a really nice looking gun that most likely will be nothing but a wallhanger, at least for any country where BASRs are allowed for "high" power :(

On the bright side, the wolverine bolt M and the mancraft systems should be easy to drop into the platform. Pretty gun, im happy it's out there.

Unfortunate there's nowhere to put a full tank, but there's always an on-person tank or on-rifle CO2.

Yup... looks like a mission for a Mancraft kit hiding the regulated CO2 rig in the cavity below the stock, where the bipod normally folds into.

If it's the Striker and mostly compatible with that then it's not too hard to upgrade, get a nemo or use super powerful springs to compensate or just outright HPA it and you get the best of both short stroke and high output

If it's some other Ares system then idk anymore
