SVD - Dragunov by Drake-UK SVD - Dragunov by Drake-UK
Greetings comrades !

I present the latest addition to the gallery.

Pictured is S&T's clone of Real sword's semi auto SVD, Fitted with genuine Belarus POSP scope and shown with a whole host of Russian goodies

I merged a couple of different exposures for this shot to better bring out the texture of the scope, cheek piece and such.
_______________________________________________________

The Dragunov sniper rifle (formally Russian: Снайперская винтовка Драгунова, Snayperskaya Vintovka Dragunova (SVD), literally "Dragunov's sniper rifle") is a semi-automatic sniper rifle/designated marksman rifle chambered in 7.62x54mmR and developed in the Soviet Union.

The Dragunov was designed as a squad support weapon, since according to Soviet and Soviet-derived military doctrines the long-range engagement ability was lost to ordinary troops when submachine guns and assault rifles (which are optimized for close-range and medium-range, rapid-fire combat) were adopted.

It was selected as the winner of a contest that included three competing designs: the first was a rifle designed by Sergei Simonov (known as the SSV-58), the second design, a prototype designated 2B-W10 by Alexander Konstantinov, and the third rifle, the SVD-137, a design submitted by Yevgeny Dragunov. Extensive field testing of the rifles conducted in a wide range of environmental conditions resulted in Dragunovís proposal being accepted into service in 1963. An initial pre-production batch consisting of 200 rifles was assembled for evaluation purposes, and from 1964 serial production was carried out by Izhmash.

Since then, the Dragunov has become the standard squad support weapon of several countries, including those of the former Warsaw Pact. Licensed production of the rifle was established in China (Type 79 and Type 85) and Iran (as a direct copy of the Chinese Type 79).

Are the rounds that have spent primers .308? I ask because they are definitely not 7.62 x 54r

No they are definitely spent 7.62 (x 51 NATO Ball R1M1) for display purposes.

I'm getting the CYMA, I held a S&T Tar 21 not too long ago..seemed really shitty so I don't trust S&T.

The Ares tar isn't much better which is what the S&T is based off so its not a great source for judging quality, also which version did you hold as there is a budget "Explorer" version made from ABS and a higher quality "professional" version made from fiber reinforced nylon.

S&T are a relatively new outfit by the looks of things but already make some nice AEG's like the KV G36's and UMP which are re-branded by UMAREX and in comparison (for the sake of fairness) CYMA's early guns where absolutely woeful with cheap plastic and pot-metal all over the show.

I've held both an ARES Tar-21 with MARS sight, and the S&T's most expensive model of the Tar-21, it has a metal gearbox, that's the only difference. It has been confirmed by multiple reviewers.
Ares uses real fiber-reinforced nylon, also feels better and isn't shiny.

Yes, CYMA was pretty bad when they started, but only internally. Potmetal is not that bad, as long as you don't smash it against something hard. Still, great picture.

Actually the skin would absorb the impact fairly well.

Cant say for certain as I have never really tested it on a set target although sadly I couldn't really do it at the minute even if I wanted since the internals are proving to be problematic.

Nice. I'd love to have an aeg SVD, but don't want to spend the $ for a real sword. King arms is releasing an SVD aeg sometime this year I believe. I've never heard of s&t. Not sure of they are available in the states.

I'd imagine they still use the original although probably more so the SVD-S which has black polymer furniture and a holding stock.

you british guys are limitid to 270fps i remember, so does a semi automatic rifle make any sence?
Reply

Drake-UK Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
In Britain iirc the limit to for a lot of sites is 350 full auto, 450 semi and 500 for bolt actions.

Where I live however in Northern Ireland the limit is 328 for everything which is pretty limiting for bolt actions such but aeg wise we get on alright.

DerShishaGott Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2011
328 fps its okay for cqb games. here in germany we have max 70M/s for full auto and faster than that is semi auto only.
Some fields have semi auto for anyone because full auto would stop the flow of the game :wtf: German airsoft scene is VERY weird
