For this project, I used:
- Metric Hex keys
- Dremel tool and/or drill
- Metal file
- Electrical tape
- Nerf dart
- 9" airsoft barrel
- 9" PVC (1 3/8" interior diameter)
-2" PVC (1 1/16" interior diameter)
- Large rubber washer
Please note that I completed this modification and then went back and created this Instructable, so every single picture here is after the mod has been completed.
Step 1: Removing the Handguard
When this has been removed, you must then flip the pin on the right side of the gun forward towards the muzzle of the rifle, then pull it out completely.
Note: If your SVD is an older model, you gun may not have a set screw to remove, so simply remove the pin.
After you have pulled the pin, you can slide the small metal pan forward off of the handguard and separate the guard into 2 pieces, removing it completely from the gun. Your rifle should now resemble the third picture.
