SVD King Arms
Year ago King Arms was making several AEG Dragunov replicas, which later disappeared from the market as a result of the manufacturer's business collapse. Currently, the company, trying to come back int existence, also resumed production of their SVD.
Four versions of the rifle are coming back to the offer. A replica marked with the KA-AG-64 symbol has a stock and handguard made of a black plastic (nylon):
The KA-AG -98-WO has "hydrographic" wood:
The KA-AG-92-WO has those parts made of solid wood and the indentical KA-AG-154-WO is factory fitted with a replica of an optical sight with a backlit reticle and x4 magnification.
As you can see in the photos below, the wooden parts are made of solid wood and not plywood.
A deviation from the original is the feature of switching the replica to full-auto mode (the arrow indicates the switch hidden near the trigger guard):
All versions have the ability to quickly replace the spring.
If we are to believe the descriptions, only replicas with wooden parts have a blowback (EBB).
The replica is powered by a special gearbox. Unlike in the Real Sword/Cyma system, King Arms used a system of 3 gears (in RS replicas there are four). Below is an old 2012 video showing the interior of the KA mechanism (a similar design was also used in the SVD by A&K):

The prices have not been given yet. A few years ago, replicas with plastic parts cost around 250-280 USD.
