Technically the PSL is an AK, not a Dragunov. Whatdver.

Why didn't you like it Ceesman? I wasn't too fond of the scopes on the one's I shot, but it shot well enough for me to be comfortable hitting anything inside 400m when I wanted. It also made engaging targets inside 200m a breeze.

Look even harder and you'll realize it isn't a real sniper variant.

They show the stampings on the receiver. It's a sniper stock, PU scope, and bent-bolt from another rifle slapped into a standard Mosin Nagant receiver. The guys at the arsenal during the refurb thought it was good enough to be a sniper, but the guys at the original armory didn't. Hence the scope's serial isn't engraved into the side of the receiver. Instead it is electro-penciled into the top. Not worth the $600 or so they're asking, even WITH the ammo.

Did you shoot an actual SVD, a Chinese version, or the PSL-54C because the scopes are different depending on which model you got your hands on.

I'd have replaced the scope with something bigger than a 4x, but I didn't mind them. I shot both the wooden and the new plastic ones. My favourite is the folding stock one. It knocks about 10cm off the OAL :)

I need to get my hands in a PSL to try one out.

I stand corrected, sir.

The PSL is based on the RPK/ROMAK-3 platform. Essentially it's a long-range AK and the scope on it is better performing than the original PSO-1s that the SVD had. For one thing they're lighter due to the tritium lit reticle.

Idk what that guy linked

But it is crazy how expensive those Dragunov platforms are now, or SKS's, or Mosin's, or that cheap Russian surplus ammo. *cries*

But at least AR's are stupid cheap now.

And I though that I made out well when my $450 PSL-54C turned around and sold for $750 after less than a year of ownership (I had nothing but problems as it was an early Century import that had a bad mag latch that caused tons of bolt-over-base issues). Now they're at $1500 and rising. Stupid, stupid money for a rifle that's not particularly accurate.

SKS's can still be had for sub $300 from time to time on Classic's website. I picked up a nice all-matching mid-60's chi-com military aid one from Enver Hoxha's stash not long ago for $250. Nice patina, no rust, completely matching, excellent wood. My guess from the wear pattern on the bluing is that it was a rifle handled for guard duty over the in Albania. the Wear is greater on the top and upper sides than down by the wood and is consistent over the whole of the dust cover leading me to believe the wear is from rubbing against a coat while slung over the shoulder.

Mosins have crept into the $200 range now even for round-receiver wartime production rifles.

I got rid of mine. Paid $75/ea for the pair and sold them for $300ea. Miserable little pistols with godawful trigger pull and crap-tastic accuracy. I do not miss them one bit.

If it weren't for this, there'd be almost no convo on T&O right now.
