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 than 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:

I bought one of these and have just had a few shots in the back garden with 0.25 ammo.
Beautiful rifle, after adjusting the hop slightly, it shoots straight as a die out of the box.
If only this had been available ten years ago. :)

From the manual....

Snow wolf seems to be a kind of shadow brand of S+T, most probably the same parts assembled (badly) in a different factory,In my opinion Snow wolf are worse than S+T, and a tainted brand for me after bad experience.
Many S+T guns are illegal Chinese copies of Ares designs (who did'nt have the power to stop the cloning) And Ares guns themselves although innovative are not highly regarded very often, and spares are very difficult to get last I heard but that was some time ago,unlike other brands like KWA,ICS and Krytac
