Default What other rifles are chambered for 7.62x54r?

Title says it all. Looking for a companion to my M/N 91/30?

This'll probably sound absurd, but if you hit wikipedia it might give a list. I know that I was wandering around there and found an alphabetical listing of danged near every gun made, pretty sure there's listings of ammo as well.

The Romanian PSL and Russian Dragunov (really the same thing) are both chambered in 7.62x54R also. Plus they are semi-auto sniper rifles. I saw a PSL at a local gun shop for $699 recently.

AVS36, SVT38, SVT40, ZASTAVA M76, Winchester 1895,
Remington Rolling Block and probably a lot of others.


Probably the most common of these is the SVT40.

An SVT-40 would be an awesome companion for your 91/30.

but the svt is NOT cheap for what it is. But yeah, it looks like a fun rifle to shoot!!!
I also read that the 1919a4 has an option to shoot 7.62x54. Most of the SA 1919a4 models for sale right now are chambered for .308, but it is VERY easy to change it over to 30.06 or 7.62x54 by changing the barrel/head spacing/a couple misc parts. I've seen a 7.62x54 conversion kit for sale on gunbroker before...

Dragunov? Yes-without a doubt.
A buddy and I met for some shooting at old steel oxygen cylinders and cantaloupes etc.
His Dragunov was the first I had ever seen.

The gun's sexy, yet wicked-looking, sleek combat design left a paradoxical impression on me.
He had never before used the rifle, and it was still in the box.

The beautifully irridescent, reddish-brown wood was the most attractive wood I've ever seen on any gun, and looked even better than photos of wood on the best Russian SKS rifles etc.
I don't remember seeing any sort of 'thumb hole' etc, but it had a bewitching, mysterious allure.

If his gun were a woman, it would be a stealthy, beautiful, long-legged, yet deadly Russian agent with dark-red hair
(sort of like Debra Messing ) and an ice-cold stare in an old James Bond film. Would you pass me the vodka glass?
