    My buddy in the army told me a few days ago how he really liked this dvda rifle he saw online. I didn't want to look stupid so I agreed with him on how cool it was and later went to look it up (dont lie you've done it too). Anyways, after an exhaustive search online, calling gun shops and looking in Fjestad's used gun buyer's guide (which is very thorough) i still have been unable to find out what kind of gun this is, let alone if it even exists. Any help would be great.:banghead:

    Could he have been referring to a Dragunov SVD??

    Lucky--regardless of whether or not that link is a pic of the gun in question, I have to say that is the ODDEST handgun I have ever seen!

    Social engineering is the answer. Just go back to him and say, "Hey, we were talking about this rifle the other day, and I kept thinking you mean a Dragunov, but I started thinking about it you called it something else. Were we talking about the same thing?"

    Blame it on a communication error, and then you get to look smart while finding out the true story.

    Good idea!
    Bring a picture of a Dragunov with you. He may have seen it on some silly gamer site that makes up names like "Deagle" and "HK5".

    Very strange indeed. Googled to try to find more info, all I could discover is that the large cylinder under the barrel is the mag. May have been more data but most of the pages were in Hungarian.

    I can't see SecurityArms from my present location.

    Are you guys talking about the Bizon (Bison)?

    Looks like a Krinkov AKSU, with an "underbarrel grenade launcher", except the "grendade launcher" is really a Calico-style helical feed magazine...

    For lack of a better description, it looks like a pellet gun lower with a Mac-10 upper and a Bizon-style mag.

    AJ-

    Similar concept, different execution. It looks like a really big, topheavy handgun with a magazine slung underneath, just forward of the trigger guard.

    odd... I've never heard the term dvda used outside of the porn business (and we aren't going intop what it means there). So I'd have no idea what he was talking about...

    That REALLY looks like a MAC-10 married my old Daisy CO2 pistol and had a baby.


    Curious sort that I am... I had to look that abbreviation up. OUCH! Could have gone a while with out knowing that... or that it was even possible. OUCH OUCH OUCH!

    i just figured it was some kind of acronym for a military rifle. however, it would not surprise me in the slightest if he just wanted me to GOOGLE something unsettling as a joke...i think i just solved the mystery...hmmh what does DVDA stand for anyway? Wait! i dont want to know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    let's just say it means something that would probably cause Art's oft-mentioned Grammaw to spotaniously combust, were I to explain it...
