It's not bad

I thought the barrel was a bit light for a semi-auto sniper rifle. It doesn't even come close to competing with our sniper rifles, but the way the Soviets intended for it to be used was more of a squad Designated Marksman's rifle, so the real comparison is between this and the M21/M14. The inherent accuracy of the 7.62 NATO round and the higher quality optics of our scopes make the M21 superior, but I wouldn't feel outgunned if all I had was a Dragunov.

To a few depots to be inspected for serviceability and then distributes them to units of the Iraqi Army or Iraqi Police. Nope, can't take any weapon or component of a weapon back. Scopes, I'm not sure of. Rules went back and forth quite a bit. Bayonets, no bayonets, no body parts, no body parts. Yes, the "no body parts" was repeated several times for my benefit by my leadership.
