This is the last kit like this that I have, don't know if I will be able to get more because of the government contract mentioned below. This was the one I had personally picked and the finish is particularly good.
You are bidding on a brand new Dragunov-FPK sniper rifle, complete with original military scope(not the imported version) and all of the accessories. These rifles, also known as a Romak-3, SSG-97, and PSL, are extremely accurate and reliable. The Dragunov design has been in use since the mid 60's, and is still the official design of Russia and other Com-bloc countries. This is the Romanian version, which improved on the Russian design as far as reliability goes. This is a great weapon for several reasons. First, it uses the same type of action that an AK-47 uses, which makes it drag-through-the-mud reliable. Second, it's semi-automatic, which means if you miss with the first shot, you have an immediate chance to make up for it. Third, it uses a very powerful 7.62x54R caliber bullet, which is a monster round. The large size of the round and the long barrel of the rifle combine to allow shooting out to 1000yds. A communist sniper issued a Dragunov rifle in the Afghan war stated that he felt confident hitting people out to 800 yds with one shot, and vehicles up to 1000 yds. These features make the perfect long-range weapon for any situation. This rifle comes complete with scope(very cool, built in range-finder reticle which was originally lit with radioactive Tritium), cleaning kit, broken-shell extractor, small spare parts, cleaning rod, oil bottle, leather sling, canvas scope/action cover, owner's manual provided by the importer, and a hardcase. Quantities of these rifles are extremely limited. That is why these are very scarce(especially unfired ones), and will only become more so. The scope cover shows some signs of storage on the leather, otherwise everything is in great condition. Don't take a chance with a used firearm. This rifle is a valuable investment, a great collector's piece, and a very fun gun to shoot. I will accept check, money order, or Gearpay(Gearpay add 3%). Any questions please email me at Apache_Arms@yahoo.com.
IMPORTANT UPDATE(10/22/06): The United States military has just put out a contract on these rifles. All production will be going to the Government for use with the Iraq self-defense forces. New, unfired rifles are no longer available. This is one of the last, and will be an even better investment because of it.
11/15/06- Just today I noticed a small nick on the bottom of the lower handguard. It is absolutely nothing unusual for a surplus military rifle, and the rest of the rifle is in much better condition than is average, but I like to describe these as best as I can. Don't bid if this is a problem.
