King Arms Dragunov.
Yes, that's the thing I've been waiting for. And enormous thanks go to Randy at DEA airsoft who got it in for me.
Visually; gorgeous. What is wood looks and feels like varnished wood. If it's not really wood, well, they got the illusion right. The cheekpiece/rest is real wood, detachable. As the gun is set in a fairly straight line, aiming with goggles will be a pain. Time to invest in something acceptable
Apart from the magazine, who'se plastic/abs matches the gun perfectly in color, the entire thing is metal. The entire gun is heavy (I'd guess around 10 pounds). There is no creak, no flex, nothing perceptible.
Cocking is easy, test firing went fine, I am not in a position to check it's range or FPS rating.
Hopup is reached under the top cover, and adjusted by an allen key. That too is untested yet.
Takedown is pretty much like a real AK variant. That means it's dirt easy; remove the dust cover, and you see the bolt and bolt spring guide.
The main spring does look like a standard AEG spring, so their claims appear to be true. I have not tried to take it that far apart yet, nor do I intend to.
The frame mounts for Russian scopes appear to be the right size, but I again dont have a scope for it (yet).
Overall, it's a stunning piece. But beware, the cost is over $1000 by the time it's in Canada.
Edit: Get a set of metric allen keys. It's a perfectly european setup, even to that level of detail.
You will also need a tamper-proof Torx screwdriver set.

Pics I'll work on, never bothered to set up a way to post anything here. What you can find on UNcompany , Redwolf or WGC is pretty much far better pics than I could take.
Performance will have to wait for a suitable outdoors range where I can setup the chrony.
Please dont expect much anytime soon, my free time (and where I can do this safely) is limited. Sorry about that.

The magazine is black abs plastic. But since I got it around 2:30 this afternoon... you'll understand that I have not done much more than shoot 5 BBs out of it at my bullet trap.
So I have no clue about the double feeding problem.
It gave me no problems during the short test?

For scopes, I know where to get something even rarer. That will be a future purchase.
(A real day/night Dragunov scope)
Russianboy, if you want to describe your exact gun, make a review of it yourself in YOUR own thread. And dont assume we know nothing. If you want to have little arguments on what is what, dont do it in my thread. It's rude.

I chose the KA because it is spring powered, and the spring can be changed in moments with the right screwdrivers for a much stronger spring.
PS, FF, thank you muchly.

Okay, I finally managed to find a spot to test it. Just in case you wonder how hard this can be, my entire municipality is now HUGE and it is illegal to even shoot a BB gun on it's territory.
Foolish me, I forgot my Chrony at home, but from having shot many powerful Airsoft guns, I'll take a wild informed guess.
Ammo available was .20 and .25
Hopup, and initial range tests, was done with .20
Range; well over 150 feet. BB's were easily reaching 200 feet, but at that point the accuracy was poor. The flight was on par with other upgraded guns I own, right out of the box. Hopup adjustment, apart from requiring an Allen key, was easy. Only requiring the removal of the top action cover (takes less than one second), pulling back the bolt a bit, and there is the screw. A convenient arrow indicates the direction to turn the screw.
Using .25 would simply require a tad more hopup, range was the same, trajectory was the same. It seems to be a very tolerant gun for different ammo weights. I will eventually try heavyer ammo when I find some.
There were zero malfunctions during the tests. The gun is quiet, cocking the action is a bit of a reach if you are small (I am), but is not hard to do at all. It is louder to do that than with other bolt guns I tried, but not by much.
The safety is simple and solid. I estimate the speed to be at least 400fps if I compare it to my AK47. If I ever get my brain in gear, a real speed test will be done.
If I locate where the heck I went and hid my monster Systema spring (I think it was an M150), I'll give it a test. Same for a few other springs I have floating around. However, when something works perfectly, I'm not tempted to "fix" it.
Please note that a complete takedown of this gun requires Torx Safety screwdriver bits.
