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.
