Created in 1963 by the USSR, the Dragunov SVD (Snayperskaya Vintovka Dragunova), or simply the SVD, was a very rugged and accurate DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle). While my K'NEX replica does not match up (even in K'NEX standards) to the legend of the SVD, it is not, altogether a bad replica. It is semi-sturdy, looks correct, has a nice scope, and gets (generally) good range. It was rather hard to get it to look correct, but my hard work payed off.

  • Looks correct
  • Scope attaches from the side of the gun
  • 8 - 10 round magazine
  • True trigger operated
  • Good pin-pull
  • Good range: up to 50 ft.
  • Accurate up to 40 ft.
  • Comfortable
  • Sturdy
  • Reliable
  • Has magazine release lever
  • Is (almost) 48 in. long

Instructions will be ready soon.

not to be mean or anything. or put it down. i just like how this one looks <br>
I get you. =D
getting close to finishing??
Sorry bro, I forgot that I had said that. I may get it up later today, but I am just not sure. I have so much that my Mom relies on me to do...
hahahaha ok. i knew you forgot. was wondering if you still were still trying for the project. i am busy to. my knex are all packed up to. i built this one knex gun and forget how i made the trigger (it needed repairs) and i have it laying in a random container in my room. https://www.instructables.com/id/Impact-Drive-a-knex-gun/ but it needs better pics. i dunno how id post it if i got better pics........
I have all the pictures take, all's I have to do is post it. If everything when according to my plans, I would be done long ago, but that NEVER happens. =D
same. im bad planner.. worse then u probs
Well, I don't know if I meant that either of us are bad planners, I was just observing that when I make plans, they usually don't follow through. I get caught up in doing something else, my parents might have something for me to do, etc. Most of the time though, I end up spending most of my time on Debate.
lol i understood you completely. im the same way lol. i have a few things i said id do for people a year ago or 2 years ago and i havent done them yet lol....
Good. It'll be ready by next sunday at the latest.

omg looks so real!
Thanks bro! =D
I liked I better the last time ?
Nah! XD
yeah huh!
Nice! Not much more to say! But why is the last picture the intro picture? Is that a glitch?
Thankee! As to the profile picture being that of the last picture, I have no idea why it is doing that. It must be a glitch, I've tried to fix it a few times, nothing seems to work.
Hmm... That's strange! It doesn't seem to be happening to any other ibles anywhere, but it happened on both of yours... :/<br><br>Try emailing service! It's service@instructables.com I believe.
The mag is about 3-4 cm too small.
I've fixed that.
will you post? <br>
Sure, why not.
REALY! <br>
Sure I will. It may take a few days, but I'll get to it, sooner than later.
oh ok<br>
Hmm, to each his own I guess.
Very good job! It looks spot on!
Thanks bro, you are too kind. =D
