Just have a longer inner barrel for your sniper and throw a suppressor on it to cover it

For the sake of realism I could just keep the SVD as is. However, since a Real Sword SVD cost around $1200, I'd rather be able to use it as an AR if the need arises, or at the very least not get it tangled in forest areas. In other words, Function over Form as long as I don't have to resort to using M14 or AK47, which is just ridiculous for the PLA forces.

Please read my posts... If it is indeed expensive, I just want to have an estimate...
