Finally got around to watching the video review.
Proprietary parts so no affordable or easily accessible vsr compatible upgrades, the price seen is for a plastic stock and the standard hop is dropping after 40m?
That's gonna be a firm no from me then. Even if there is going to be a vsr conversion kit by the time you add a wood stock and upgrade the necessary parts you're going to be about £300+ into it.
Pity, it all sounded so promising until at was unveiled.

It may not be the answer to what people are looking for, but it is a step in the right direction.....much better concept that the kacky dboys shell ejectors.

Its got a good review from a regular ww2 player in the U.S. .... http://ww2aa.proboards.com/thread/12311/spring-k98k-sale-on-evike?page=1&scrollTo=141527
Put more rounds through it today. Mag release and reloading is quite seamless (on parr with a VSR Bar 10 and certainly way better than the S&T Springfield.) For mine .25 or .28 BBs are the perfect BB weight for this gun.

I am reluctant to disassemble it as its shooting so good but I am going to have to if I am going to check out if a real stock will work and how much effort that will require. It has passed my 500 round test. This is a fabulous rifle!

It seems that it`s a copy of the Tanaka springer K98, for the money it would be hard to beat, I suspect it`ll be around £190 in the UK ? For an off the shelf practical K98 which shoots ok out of the box, its been a long time coming.

Out of nowhere snow wolf kar98 springer rifle is coming out. It looks like another Tanaka clon like s&t, so I presume it's practicaly the same rifle as s&t. Is it possible that after all these years of waiting we are getting two springer kar98 rifles?! :happyclap: :happydance: :happyswing:
