This has yet to be scientifically proven. By that, I may have been referring to barrel length… or it may have been in regards to phallic matters.
Anyway, here’s a picture showing you the contrast in length between a SVD and my AK-102 (or whatever you want to call it) – my AK’s overall length with stock folded is actually slightly shorter than the barrel length found on the SVD.
This picture may also lead to a future filled with underslung AK carbines under a SVD barrels.
The owner of the Real Sword SVD pictured is “8th_Army” (the guy holding the guns in this picture).
