UK Arms M24??

I have narrowed down my choices for the two sniper rifles I like the most. An A&K Dragunov SVD or a UK Arms M24 I've heard alot about the SVD, but nothing about the M24. Does anyone know anything about the M24? For example is it good quality, accurate, powerful? Any help would be great.

I have the A&K SVD and I put a Madbull bucking into it and a 650mm Madbull TB and it shoots fantastically well with .30g BBs. However I can't handle the way you cock it as it cramps and bruises my hand and fingers to no end and I'm actually trying to sell it now.

Something else to note is that even with the barrel wobble fix(tighting a few grub screws) if you try to hold the fore-grip and fire it seems to drastically effect the BB's path compared to if you hold the magazine. It is most definitely not a weapon for all including myself, I'll be sticking with my bolties from now on.
I really don't know the SVD just feels off to me, sure I can cock it but I find it to be an awkward movement. Taking your hand off the whole gun assembly to reach forward to cock it just doesn't work with me. With a bolt I can make the transition from the trigger to the bolt in one fluid movement.
I'm doing that currently wesley, I did enjoy the simplicity of the whole receiver. Something current owners should do is drill a hole in the top of the receiver so you can reach the hop-up unit without taking the whole cover off. I never pursued this issue but I noticed there was a significant difference in the BBs flight path whilst adjusting the Hop-up when the receiver cover was off and when it was on.

Something I want to note is that I didn't find the cocking difficult I just found it to awkward to be of any use when in combat. A rubber recoil-pad would have been nice to make the cocking less awkward.
