Dragunov

The Dragunov is one of the few rifles in the world built from the ground up as a sniper weapon, as opposed to being a modified sporting rifle. The rifle itself is designed much for the same purpose as the AK47. In the soviet TO&E, there is a sniper per squad, so the Dragunov (SVD) is easily produced and easily maintained. The accuracy is decent, but not great as far as sniper weapons go. Being 48 inches long, it is a bit large, but it is also barrel heavy as it should be, for better stability. Arguably the best feature of the military rifle is the PSO-1 scope. this is a 4 power rangefinding scope that detects IR sources. It is not a night vision sight per se, but it does have an illuminated reticle. The round itself is a pretty powerful round, not quite as potent as a .30-06, but not as accurate.

oh well any how the Russian dragunov unfired are going for 9000 to 11000 now, to bad you had a bad experience with the rifle, they really are great rifles as well as the Norinco NDM 86 rifles.
