Introduction: K'NEX Dragunov SVD (Build)

Picture of K'NEX Dragunov SVD (Build)
The Snayperskaya Vintovka Dragunova (which can be simply translated to Dragunov SVD) is one of my all-time favorite sniper rifles, next only to the M21 and the Mauser M86. It is simple, rugged, and reliable. This, the K'NEX version, is simple (after all, it utilizes a true-trigger), and reliable, and has many advantages over your basic K'NEX sniper rifle. It is accurate up to only about 40 ft., but can supposedly shoot farther (it shoots an ammunition that would be hard to find outdoors, but is easy enough to find indoors). It has a sturdy body, stock and fore grip area, but lacks the simplicity that makes good K'NEX sniper rifles better.

  • Good range: 40 - 60 ft.
  • Magazine lock / release
  • Scope that attaches from the side
  • Looks really accurate
  • Sturdy
  • Easy to hold and operate
  • Has a nice hefty feel to it

Now, lets move on to the first step!

Step 1: Main Body

So in this step you are going to be working on the main body. This would include:
  • All of the internals
  • The pistol grip
  • The internal barrel
  • The fake barrel
  • And the mechanism.
As I always say, if you need any help in any area, just ask. I'll get back to you ASAP.

Step 2: The Stock

This step is relatively simple, you'll be building the stock. I did not take the whole thing apart because it is relatively easy to build just with these pics. As I always say, if you need help, just ask.

Step 3: The Scope

This is probably the easiest step of all. The scope can be edited in any way to want. I made it for looks (I made it look as accurate as possible), but you can make it in any way you want.

Step 4: Finishing Up

In this, the very last step you will be adding the extras and the magazine, all of which, mind you, are entirely optional. The very last pic should show you what the end product should look like.

Looking forward to build this gun but i have one question, the gun looks pretty flimsy and i like sturdy guns which are pretty heavy the most. Is it really flimsy? Cause after i builded it i want to be happy with the results :)

morrisme (author)2014-03-13

sadly, i don't have enough pieces to build it. XD

Update - I have change the review date from April to March, no joke and also check out my Mystery Box

Sweet, great! Will do. =D

Choice - I can post the Dragunov review or instructions for my PPSh-41 for March. You can only choose one for that month.

not a bad gun but i had to make the mag fixed in stead of free and took off the rails sence they were to flimsy

Can I have some pics? BTW, what do you mean by "rails?"

first pic is the top of the gun where the dark shell is i changed the top some and made a slot so if the shell goes to far forward i can push it back to the ram can hit it. the the piece pointing up is usually closed
second pic is the finished gun without the barrel attached or scope

by rails i ment the barrel

Going to build this at some point next year and I will do a review on it just like I did your m14

Thankee. I would love a review on it. =D

You can expect the review at some point in April 2014 so it is on my to do list since I have other reviews to do.

Sweet, sounds good bro, but that is four months away... Wow.

3 months not 4 :D

XD, true, my bad.

It's ok, everyone makes mistakes

Whenever I think that I've "seen it all," you surprise me :-)

Thanks bro. Hows life? Its been a while!

Busy. My interests are slowly shifting from knex to wood working. I also started to do some music producing. How are you?

Same here (about being busy). You are not going to leave the K'NEX community, are you? How am I, like I said, busy. Debate, school work, and learning everything I can takes up almost all my day. =D

No I'm probably not going to leave the knex community, but knex is becoming less of a priority.
