    Back in the mid nineties I had an opportunity to buy a new in the shipping box Dragunov, complete with scope, for $1595. Also a Thompson branded semi-auto copy (with drum) for $595.

    If I would have bought both, what would they be worth today, assuming they had never been fired and were stored in friendly environments with no ammo in the mags?

    Dragunovs are less than that now. You would have got shafted.

    THompsons are around 700-800, drums are like 200 bucks or somethin

    Russian drag or chicom ndm? Chicom going for around $1600-$2k now a days, Russians vary depending on importer and config $2200-$3000.

    The cheap Thompson clones go for around $800 I think. Drums for them go for over $150.

    Good to know.

    I was with a couple buddies when we saw the Dragunov and the Thompson, and they still are giving me a hard time about not buying them...12 years later.

    I thought the Dragunov was expensive for what it was, when I saw it. Now that I've done a little research, it might have been a "Tiger" variant...the one without the thumbhole stock.

    Now that I've done a little research, might have been a Tiger? Are those a lesser desired variant? It seemed very crude at the time. Still had the cosmoline or whatever they packed it in for the trip.

    They're were a few varients that come into the country, the one imported by KBI being the most desirable built on a TIGR reciever with mil spec drag parts. Then theres the sporterized tigr still desirable since they're no longer legally importable but it lacks the mil features like F/H and bayo lug can be converted over to mil style though even the sporterized ones you wont find one NIB for less then $2200. If it was packed in a Styrofoam box with the rifle, scope, mags and bayonet it was the more expensive one.
