  • Full metal with real wood furniture
  • 6.03mm Tightbore inner barrel
  • Compatible with AEG springs & HOP-up parts  

If you're looking for a new sniper rifle with an exciting aesthetic, the Snow Wolf Dragunov SVD Spring Powered Sniper Rifle is a fantastic choice. Styled after the real steel Dragunov SVD issued as a DMR to Soviet and Russian armed forces from the 1970s to the present day, this SVD is a straight-pull bolt action example, sacrificing rate of fire in exchange for improved accuracy and the ability to use high FPS springs.

The Snow Wolf Dragunov SVD is constructed entirely from metal with real wood furniture, making it a fantastic replica of the real steel rifle and a sight to behold. Inside, we are treated to a 6.03mm tightbore inner barrel measuring an incredible 590mm, enhancing accuracy and ensuring you get the best possible air efficiency. The piston and HOP-up unit are both CNC machined from aluminium, promising a long life and ample strength to cope with high-strength springs. One of the highlights of this SVD is its compatibility with standard AEG mainsprings and HOP-up parts, meaning the sky is the limit for the upgrade fiends.

If you're a sniper looking for a platform which deviates from the standard VSR-style bolt action, the Snow Wolf Dragunov SVD Spring Powered Sniper Rifle is a fantastic choice and the perfect finishing touch to a Russian or Soviet loadout!

Description

If you're a sniper looking for a bad guy primary, the Dragonov SVD is about as iconic as OPFOR sniper rifles get! The Snow Wolf Dragunov SVD Spring Powered Sniper Rifle is a single-shot spring-powered sniper rifle based on the King Arms SVD design but enhanced with a CNC aluminium piston, CNC aluminium HOP-up unit and 6.03mm tightbore inner barrel.

Like the real steel SVD, the Snow Wolf version boasts full metal construction and authentic real wood furniture, giving it the vibe we all expect from a Russian sniper rifle replica. The wood looks and feels great and despite its full metal construction and monstrous length, this SVD is quite light and agile, tipping the scales at a reasonable 2.8KG. If you're working on a sniper loadout with a bad-guy style, the Snow Wolf Dragunov SVD should be your primary!

Starting at the tip we can find the classic SVD integrated front sight/flash hider, which combines a long "birdcage" style muzzle device with a raised sight with a full hood, to prevent bumps and scrapes from affecting your sights zero. The sight post has checkering on the rear to reduce glare and ensure you aren't distracted while aiming. 

The front sight/flash hider attaches to the extremely long outer barrel using a small grub screw hiding in the bayonet mount on the bottom of the device, though there are no threads beneath. As we move rearwards we meet the gas block, which serves no function for Airsoft purposes other than looking cool and providing a sling point, which can be found on the left side and takes the form of a small loop through which a loop of paracord or a keyring can be threaded.

Following the gas block, we arrive at the front handguard cap which secures the two-part handguard to the rifle. To remove the handguard, simply rotate the release lever on the right side towards the muzzle of the rifle, which will allow the handguard cap to slide forward, releasing the handguards.

The handguards are of the classic SVD design, with attractive vent holes and constructed from gorgeous real wood, completing the realistic Dragunov look. The handguard shape is very comfortable to grip, allowing both a close-in target grip and an aggressive elbow-locked C-clamp grip depending on the shooter's preference. Atop the handguard, though not actually attached to it, we can find the rear tangent open iron sight, which features realistic range adjustment between close-range shooting and 1200 meters! Obviously, this doesn't translate directly to Airsoft, though it allows the shooter to adjust for various engagement ranges all the same.

Next up, we reach the receiver which is entirely constructed from alloy, providing the authentic feel we expect of a realistic SVD replica. The fire selector lever can be found on the right side of the receiver, similar to an AK-type rifle. The horizontal position locks the trigger in safe mode and rotating the lever downwards enables the hot mode. For AK users, this fire selector setup will feel right at home and is actually slightly easier to reach than in an AK thanks to the extended tab at the tip.

To the rear of the selector lever, we can find the disassembly lever which can be rotated downwards to allow removal of the top cover. Once the top cover has been removed, the HOP-up unit can be accessed to adjust the flight path of the BB. The HOP-up unit is a grub screw adjustable TDC type, applying pressure directly to the top of the rubber, reducing the possibility of shots curving left or right. The adjustment screw appears in the centre of the top of the blue CNC aluminium HOP-up unit, once the rifle is cocked the bolt can be held to the rear to adjust using an Allen key. 

The magazine release can be found on the bottom of the receiver and allows access for both left and right-handed users. The magazine uses a "rock and lock" insertion method, similar to the AK platform. The left side of the receiver features an SVD Dovetail optics rail machined in and we can confirm that it is compatible with the PCS SVD 4x24 PSO-1 Dragunov Sniper Scope. If you need help mounting your SVD scope or rail adapter, check out our guide. The trigger guard is made from steel and conceals and protects the curved trigger of the SVD from accidentally being pressed. As we reach the rear of the rifle we encounter the classic SVD stock/pistol grip assembly constructed from real wood, providing that familiar Bad Guy sniper rifle silhouette, giving the Dragunov its classic look.

The pistol grip is a short but wide design and fills out the hand well, providing support for the palm ensuring the shooter has a comfortable grip. The standard SVD stock profile provides an excellent cheek weld when using the iron sights, though this rifle also comes with a comfortable wood and imitation leather cheek pad. Just like the cheek pad issued with the real SVD, this provides a removable cheek riser for use with optical sights. At the rear of the stock, we find our second sling point, a hole in the rear of the stock with a metal pin running through, allowing the use of two-point slings. The butt plate is made from metal, and is a smooth flat design, matching the real SVD perfectly.

Inside, the Snow Wolf Dragunov SVD boasts some convenient pre-upgraded parts, including a whopping 590mm 6.03mm tightbore inner barrel, CNC aluminium HOP-up unit and CNC aluminium piston. The tightbore inner barrel improves accuracy and air seal, giving you slightly higher FPS from the same power spring. Speaking of springs, the Snow Wolf SVD is compatible with standard AEG upgrade springs, meaning you can wack a real beast of a spring inside and push it right up to your local site's limit for single-shot sniper rifles. With a CNC aluminium piston pre-installed, you better believe this SVD is ready for it!

The CNC aluminium HOP-up unit is also compatible with AEG aftermarket upgrades, including inner barrels, HOP-up rubbers and HOP-up nubs. This means there is no limit to what you can achieve with the Snow Wolf SVD, being compatible with the widest aftermarket in the Airsoft industry!

If you're into bolt-action sniper rifles and want something a bit different, the Snow Wolf Dragunov SVD Spring Powered Sniper Rifle should be right up your street. With pre-upgraded internals, AEG HOP-up and spring compatibility and fantastic full-metal and real wood build, this is probably the best springer SVD on the market right now!
