I've been hangin out on AuctionArms.com, and have been looking around quite a bit. I have noticed a similarity between the Soviet SVT and the Egyptian Hakim. The two rifles look similar in the stock, barrel, and action shape. Did the SVT influence the design of the Hakim? I have been a fan of the SVT for a while and would like one but thought perhaps a Hakim might be a slightly cheaper alternative. Is there any connection between these rifles other than asthetics?
