do you happen to know what kind of thread the flash suppressor is on the SVD? mine has gotten screwed on really tightly and i don't remember if it is a right handed or left handed thread. i have tried to find it in some manuals online, but they didn't have any info on it.

Default Svd

The SVD is capable of MOA, but its very rare. The ergonomics on the SVD are the killer. It is designed for small soldiers, most of them (unless modified) have a very very short length of pull.
They are fun to shoot, they will hit what you are aiming at 100% of the time, they will not shoot a one hole group at 1000 yards though. If you are not too worried about this then grab one. You can always toss 4 inches of spacers on the butt.
The Russian glass on them is mediocre at best, so if you are not too interested in keeping it "military issue" then toss a good sight on there and dont look back.

Have you seen this little beauty from Aim Surplus?

Item#PSL
New Romanian Cugir manufactured model PSL-54C semi-automatic 7.62x54R rifles. Inlcudes LPS TIP2 scope and mount, 2-10rd magazines, magazine pouch, field cleaning kit, and optic case.
Barrel length: 26.5", Overall length: 45.5", Weight: 9lbs.

Not for sale in CA.


Price: $699.95
Their FFL requirements seemed a bit "odd" so I emailed them with a question about it. I asked about shipment to an FFL dealer (rather than having my own FFL license) in Las Vegas and out of the 2 gun shops I referenced, they had one of them on file.

I gave up on these guns after much research and speaking with many who have either owned or shot them. They are not moa guns, and hence have no place in my arsenal for that kind of money. They are the coolest looking gun I have seen however and I would like to own one just for it's looks - but I'm not pating $750 for looks.

not to bring this back from the dead... but...
a romak for $700 is not an original russian dragunov. vastly different. check out dragunov.net

Original Dragunovs, the short Tigr, or the chinese ndm-85 or 86 are close to 3k and will shoot moa.

I've wondered if there was an aftermarket barrel available that was thicker than the one that comes on the rifle. I have read that this was part of the accuracy problem.

Well seeing as how you did...

To spend $3k on an accurate AK is just ridiculous IMO. For that money you can have any number of "sniper" rifles that show quality of workmanship FAR beyond anything made in Russia or China...like a Sako.
