    In 7.62, and I can't decide what to do with it:

    Option 1: Dragunov style

    Option 2: Tactical AK style

    What do you guys think?

    I was leaning towards that from the beginning, and it's cheaper (depending on how much I blow on glass) :bigthumb:

    For sure, the stock is only $75. I'll prob spend like $100-150 on glass as it's just a fun range toy and the gun is cheap to begin with. This one looks awesome.

    Not really, no AR, no 1911, no bird shotgun, no full size double stack. It's decent

    My brother did this to his, which I think is pretty badass. The red dot is on an Ultimak gas tube with integrated rail.

    AR build is in process, WASR 10 isn't in the pic. I could give a fuck less about a 1911. K98 and K31 will be ordered in the next month or so.

    God damnit, stop that! :mad:

    I've been telling myself for weeks not to buy one of those things right now, that the prices on them aren't climbing, and that there's no need to rush.

    So you're not going to convert it? I'd go traditional AK personally. If you didnt want wood, get a synth buttstock and a saw grip or something. :dunno:

    Actual Russian SVDs (Dragonuvs) are rare and very expensive. Chinese NVDs are less rare, but still usually pricey.

    The Romanian PSLs can be had for under $1000 easy if you look around.
