    As TheFallenHero proposed, I am making an official A&K SVD Dragunov thread.

    Do you have any question? Ask them here.
    Do you have some information regarding the gun? Post it here.
    Do you want to know some basic DIY modification? Read them here.

    As soon as I get home from work, I will post some vital information.

    26th of June EDIT:
    Alright here comes the basic information on which parts are accessible and do not need to be custom made (unless of course, you want to get them custom made). Note, that I am not aware of any other website selling those things outside of Czech Republic, this list only serves and informative purpose:
    All the things together can be found here:

    The best you can do is:
    teflon tape the cylinder head (put teflon tape around the threads of the cylinder head)
    Shim the trigger mechanism in order to minimize wobble of the internal parts
    Lubricate the piston
    Add a second smaller o-ring to the piston
    Stabilize the barrel with teflon tape
    Tie the hop up bucking with some dental floss or fishing line
    You can always add some shims on the spring guide to make the gun shoot harder (not recommended unless you have upgraded sears and trigger box)
    Add a layer or two of teflon tape to where the outer barrel slides into the body to minimize wobble.

    This is about it.

    When I'm adjusting my hop up, no matter which way I turn the screw the bb keeps going strait down, I get about 50 ft of range!

    If you have taken the gun apart and barrel our then disassemble it again and you might have put the barrel in upside down. The little nub on the bucking should be on the top

    Do you still have problems with the spring? Try to get a new one.

    Urbanprodigy, that is not the problem. I have had expensive debates with Screach about it.

    Right. The spring seems to be faulty.

    While it might look good, it is heavy. I do use the regular black polymer furniture.

    The parts that are in store? Yes, they are available to anyone. Tho problem is that many parts still have to be custom made, because no company makes them in larger quantities, nor do they custom make them.

    When I come to think of it, I might even come up with a list of parts that can be bought and add a website to the stores that carry them in stock.

    Question is what scope is suitable expect the PSO-1 ? I'm using the Ak mount and Bushnell 3-9x40EG with double weaver rail, but it seem a little higher than gun, i'm try to zero scope best but still little higher...

    i got a off game last week, i got problem to cock the bolt. So i decided to downdrage a spring to M135, is it lowering my range ?

    None other than the Belorussian made PSO-1 or Russian made POSP scopes. The spring does lower the range.
