Hobby Nuts VSS Vintorez Coming


#1

Missed this one on their Facebook page.


#2

Hopes up for this, but I wasn’t impressed by Hobby Nut’s quality so far. Their XM25 was garbage. Did they improve over time? If yes, they should do a S3Rm, too.


#3

Haven’t tried any of their more recent products myself. The older ones use a thinner plastic which can make them a bit more fragile so hopefully they have improved that.


#4

Exactly that was the problem!


#5

I’ve got the Sideshow VSS and it’s oversized like all their weapons are. The mag is an odd shape and not correct as well. Still it’s a neat piece. I’d be interested in picking up one of these if it turns out any good.


#6

Sideshow had a lot of unique weapons some time ago, before other brands caught up on the Masada or Tavor e.g.
Unfortunately, Sideshow never cared for proper scale, paint jobs or a lot of moving parts/features.


#7

Val is coming as well. Would not be surprised to see the SR-3M as well to round out the 9x39.


#8

Do I see a spring in there?081dcbc59d4d5c5302e61125c2fa58ce01f9dbbd_1_690x388

EDIT

No spring…


#9

Given that they are already going to produce a standard vintorez, and given their very specific choices in modifications to this Val rifle, including the older pattern collapsible forward grip and non-rail mounted laser sight, are they producing those prototyped KGB weapons we saw a few years ago?


#10

Not sure but the similarities are there. Hobby Nuts has shown 3D models of the in progress works so I would tend to think they are newer. From what I have seen they design all of their own product.


#11

Haven’t seen any information released yet. Depending on pricing/availability I’ll have a look.


#12

Visually speaking those are looking quite good and coming along nicely.


#13

Wow, that Vintorez looks like it has a real wooden stock and that As Val just looks awesome as well.


#14

These are coming along nicely.


#15

Yeah that’s just awesome.


#16

How about an SVD, guys?


#17

Would be nice to see an updated one along with a SVU.


#18

It is sort of surprising that we haven’t yet seen a contemporary period sniper or designated marksman in all of the nearly twenty modern Russian figures and gear sets released since 2014.


#19

I missed out on the Dam Toys one, so I’ll have to give this one a go.


#20

One of those weapons I am a sucker for, have each one made (so far), including an early scratch-build by Dave70b.

I agree, somebody needs to step up on sniper rifles, both a newer SVD, and the more modern long guns.
