The real steel SVD Dragunov is a semi-automatic rifle designed by Evgeniy Fedorovich Dragunov in the Soviet Union between 1958 and 1963. The SVD was the world's first purpose-built military precision marksman's rifle, and is common throughout the former Eastern Bloc. The need for a new precision platoon-level, semi-automatic rifle became apparent to Soviet military leadership in the 1950s, and in 1958 a contest among Soviet arms designers was opened for the creation of such a rifle. The winner of the contest was a rifle designed by a team headed by Evgeniy Fedorovich Dragunov. In 1963, the Dragunov Sniper Rifle was accepted into the arsenal of the Soviet Army.
The A&K SVD AEG is a 1/1 Scale High Performance Replica of very sturdy construction. Virtually the entire rifle is made from Metal with the exception of the Hand-guard and Stock which are made of High Quality Nylon. The stock features padded cheek rest for comfort and allows for increased accuracy through stability.
The inner barrel is precision and at over 600mm provides incredible accuracy at longer than average ranges. The hybrid T3 gear box uses a 4 gear system with 7mm metal bushings (compatible with RS AEG parts) and a metal bearing spring guide. The overall build quality is very impressive especially considering the cost!
