Any suggestions on where to mount it would be appreciated or even a brand name of a new one

A lot of bipods attach to sling swivels, but you don't have any. A set of sandbags may be a good investment.

You could attach a swivel to the handguard, but not without drilling a hole, which i wouldnt recommend.

Those are for the VEPR, they don't have them for the PSL

You can attach one to the bayonet lug if it hasnt been shaved off. Most are shaved. The stock is the other option. Attaching a clamp on to the gas block wont affect poi much if at all.

If you do drill the stock (not recommended) its probably going to split or crack after a little use. The wood on the psl isnt very tough. I would suggest getting a plastic aftermarket stock set if you want to attach stuff to it.

Yea my lug has been shaved off. Why would they so such a thing and as far as drilling a hole... Not gonna do that I did notice that the wood is rather weak. Looks like its sand bags at the range or finding an after market polymer stock set.

Most PSL's are essentially AK-47's on steroids with reinforcing plates at the end of the receiver to keep from cracking during receiver bend under recoil of the 7.62x54 Rimmed cartridge. While the PSL has a bent metal style receiver the Dragunov is primarily a milled receiver.

The PSL is a long stroke gas piston system like that of the AK family, the Dragunov uses a short stroke gas piston system. Supposedly Dragunov thought this would reduce the recoil impulse on the shooter. The trigger group of the Dragunov is, from my understanding, different from the AK style of trigger group since it helps with getting a better trigger pull. Both semi-auto and select fire AK trigger groups don’t easily do as well with getting a nice crisp light pull weight.

The key things to look for when on the look out for a true Dragunov or perhaps a Polish SVD (direct copy of the Russian Dragunov) are the bent safety selector, vertically halved fore-end, a gap between the trigger and magazine release lever and lack of reinforcing plates at the end of the receiver.
