SWU Sniper Rifle Replica
Airsoft Pioneer presents a replica that has been long awaited by Russophiles and enthusiasts of weaponry from beyond the Eastern border. SWU is an airsoft version of a sniper rifle developed at the turn of 80s/90s, which was afterward used, e.g. during the conflict in Chechnya, remaining to this day a standard issue sniper rifle used by FSB and MVD.
In short, SWU can be described as a well-known Soviet sniper rifle redesigned into a bull-pup / stockless version. Therefore, the replica receives an enormous advantage of many bull-pup constructions - it allows to retain the long barrel with the overall length of the rifle comparable to that of an assault rifle. A sharpshooter wielding an SWU thus has a much better mobility and maneuverability - also in vehicles, indoors or in difficult urban conditions. Additionally, this version was expanded with the option of firing in a full auto mode!
The replica was made entirely of metal, steel elements include:
- dust cover
and the lock latch
- magazine casing
- bipod with mount
- fire mode selector plate
- trigger guard
Similarly to the original live firearm, polymer parts include the cradle / grip panels, stock pad, cheek pad and the pistol grip. The replica features an integrated, foldable bipod and a silencer (with dampening filling) mounted on a 14 mm left-handed thread. Inside is a very long, 650 mm internal barrel that provides a high efficiency - it is also worth to add that the complete length of the replica is practically identical to that of a standard AK74. The heart of the replica is made up from a dedicated gearbox, which features, among others, a set of reinforced steel gears, piston with 2 steel teeth and a bearing-mounted spring slide.
SWU can fire in semi and full auto fire modes - the rear part of the receiver features a winged selector, just like in SVD replicas. Next to the trigger - beneath the index finger - is a simple, sliding safety. The battery (stick type - included in the set) is stored inside the handguard. In order to remove the handguard or the dust cover all that is necessary is to pull the lever - just like in the live firearm.
The replica has a side mounting rail that allows to attach optics / SVD rails. If no optics are available, it is possible to aim using flip-up iron sights.
The scope visible on the photos is not included in the set!
The set includes:
- charger for the battery

It is the spped of bb, while its leaving the innerbarrel of replica. This speed is measured in FPS (Feet Per Second).
1 FPS = 0,3 m/s
1 J = 99 m/s
1 J = 326,7 FPS
Indications v2, v3, v6 does not mean the level of advance, but only shape of gearbox skeleton which was used and selected by the manufacturer depending on the capabilities of the body of the replica. For example, a models of the M4/M16 family, MP5, have a v2 gearbox, while the AK family have gearbox v3.

|Diameter of bearings in GB [mm]:|
The length of the replca is measured between the two most distant points of each other. Different models have several of these values, because of its design allows to increase or decrease it length (eg. folding stock or extended flash hider).
|Inner barrel length [mm]:|
|Battery Capacity [mAh]:|
Battery capacity determines the time, which it accumulated enough energy to work gearbox. The greater capacity, then replica will shoot longer.

Hop-Up system is used for overclocking bb during the shot (putting it in rotation), through which, it extends its flight path. Acting laws of physics make that bb lift up, while the gravitational force take it down. Appropriate adjustment of Hop-Up, will compensate for these two factors, which result in long and straight flight for longer distance and be greater focus shot (to improve accuracy).
Blow back is a simulation system of the cocking lever - it imitates the work of it as the equivalent sharp. This system raises the realism and adds a lot more experience during shooting.

rechargeable battery is characterized by high efficiency
current-carrying capacity, but there are disruptive effect on memory.
Should be unloaded and loaded in the full cycle, ie, it is recommended
to fully discharge, and after unloading must charge the battery
immediately without leaving it for a long time in a discharged state.
