    Expensive and gay.
     
  3. That's a PSL, not a Dragunov. It's overpriced. You can do much better.

    They can be had for about 200 less. Lots of fun to shoot though :o
     
  5. If you want one for fun you can find them for less. If you want something really accurate you should look at something else.

    That's a PSL, the Romanian knock-off of a Dragunov which is built on an AK-47 receiver instead of a proper Dragunov receiver. Real Dragunovs will run NFA prices since they're so rare.

    not that AK's are bad but it's a dressed up AK and it shoots like a AK. If you want a AK then get a proper AK and save some $$$. If your intension is something with more precision than go to a different platform

    If you want something accurate with cheap ammo (same caliber), buy a Mosin Sniper somewhere.

    Wasn't there a thread where someone just bought a PSL?

    Yeah, you're not going to get anything close to Dragunov accuracy with a PSL.

    are you looking for a long range scoped rifle? if so for $900 you can get a much more accurate weapon and optics imo.

    if u want a psl or fpk, anywhere in the $750-$1000 range is right depending on condition.

    I bet my Mosin is just as accurate with no scope, and only cost $100.

    I've considered a scout scope for it, but it's not really worth the money and effort for a $100 gun.

    I've got a mount, I picked it up for $10 on eBay before they stopped being so gun friendly. I couldn't bring myself to buy a scope either. With open sights I can knock soda cans around at 150 yards all day so it's plenty accurate.

    That's not what I was told on the phone the other week. :dunno:

    I planned on calling them before I go, I have family in Alabama that I go see every year. I'll maybe pick one up outside the CMP if they don't have any SA Service grades when I'm looking to go on my trip.

    If I cannot buy one from the CMP though, I probably won't. I'm not paying $800 for some trash, almost field grade rifle that won't hit the side of a barn like most individuals are selling them for.
