Dragonov
 
How do you tell the difference between a real and fake dragonov rifle and what makes souls I look for?

Most "Dragunovs" are actually Romanian PSLs, they are good rifles but aren't SVDs, they are totally different.

Actual SVDs are few and far between, and command a premium, I would suggest either the PSL route or a New VEPR. Ironwood designs makes a Dragunov style stock set for them, it will be released sometime this year.

Here's a link.

if you can find a well built psl (rare) the accuracy is the same as the svd dragunov. the problem with both rifles the svd and psl is that after 1 or 2 shots any subsequent shots you might as well try hitting a 300 yard target using 12ga 00buck wearing a blindfold.

the barrels of both are so long and thin they heat up stupid quick and whip around like a willow switch.

that being said the psl is amazingly fun to shoot.

its common for folks to have psls cut down to 18-20 inches which greatly improves its ability to disapate heat and removes most of the barrel whip. the psl and dragunov arent sniper rifles they are designated marksmen rifles. the soviets dont think of sniping the same way we do.

JonM is right I can get one good cold shot out of my PSL & hit the small gong at 400yds.
But any shots after that without letting it cool down will run a string to the right & there is no way I can get it to stop.
It is a good one shot and run gun, but that is what it was designed to do as a designated marksman rifle (DMR)
That is better than an assault rifle or battle rifle, but not as good as a sniper rifle.
