How do you tell the difference between a real and fake dragonov rifle and what makes souls I look for?
Holy crap I want one.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.
