My First Bolty is a Mystery.... And it's Heavy!

So, much against my better judgement, I impulse bought a mystery sniper rifle open box package off of Evike. Yeah, I know, not smart. BUT, I only paid 90 bucks, and there was even an SRS in the package. All I know currently is that the package shipped at 12.1 pounds (had a patch and sorbo pad as well). I'm super excited, it gets here Wednesday, and I'm looking forward to moving beyond AEG's.

They often throw extra swag in to those mystery boxes. Patches, bbs, random mags and other crap.

Don’t let the ship weight bias your hopes!

This is a little different! It's an OPEN BOX mystery box, basically just eliminating all their extra open box stock. But yeah lol shouldn't get my hopes up. Most likely an A&K M24, there were like 17 of them. Which is fine, that's a solid gun!

Update: So the rifle got here a few hours ago, and I'm in love! I got the A&K SVD, and I gotta say, initial impressions are pretty good. I thought it was funny, but the box it shipped in was too small, so the barrel was actually sticking like an inch out of the box! From what I can see, internal quality seems solid. Metal piston, trigger, hopup chamber (piston and hopup are blue, cool!). I started with some EF .2's and fps was in the 410 to 430 range. Stepping it up to .36's, the few that I had on hand, and the thing was a LASER BEAM at 100 feet or so. Have yet to test it at longer ranges, but yeah! I'm happy with it (and the bolt pull isn't as bad as people say... Yet).
