Romanian Draganov SVD Sniper rifle or Romak-3 I got a good deal on this so I bought it, has a laminated scope on the scope and shoots well out to 100 yards. I took it to the range last weekend and when I got home to shower I had some nice marks on my shoulder. I have read mixed reviews on these , but my experience with this one has been very positive. I got it with a scope cover and three mags for under $500. If you can get one at a deal like that, grab one. here are the pics http://www.flickr.com/photos/16343279@N08/sets/72157624430492899/

That's a PSL, probably a P54C. Dragunovs are different guns altogether.

Whatever sells right? :lol

You bet. I'm sure more than a few PSL's were sold as Dragunovs.

Drags are way above my spending limits, but there is still hope for a PSL in my collection.

I know mine aren't deep enough for a real Draganov, but for 700.00 I got a Romak 3 with 4 extra 10 rounders with pouch and 2 Draga. scopes, 3-9 and fixed 4x.

The top one, an M76, are easy to find.... just expensive. The bottom one on the other hand is incredibly hard to find. These were sitting in customs when the whole 'sporting' clause went into effect. It's original designation was M77. These are in .308 and were brought in by Mitchell's. In order to finish the import they had to do the whole fixing of the flash hider and the butt-hole stock to make it 'kinder & gentler'. The also scratched out the M77 and redesignated them 'M90' (kind of like the Mak 90's from China) No more were ever imported after that. Last one I saw at auction went for over $2100 :-o

I had a local come in & wanted to trade for it. He walked out with an M48 Mauser, a Yugo captured K98 and a Mosin M38. He was happy, I was extremely happy. He didn't want any semi's, only bolt-guns.
