Hope you are wearing hearing protection even with .22LR. Otherwise you are going to be very deaf when you get older.
Full sized elk steel cut out - rather hard to miss a clang target....hit it with the .22 as well, but had to aim even higher.

Yea, I wear hearing protection, I've already learned my lesson...what?

People already say I'm deaf anyway - it's more like I don't listen anymore.

No....it is cool, and a VERY comon mistake as they look quite a bit alike....If I was not a "nut" I would not know the difference...but here is a quick pic to show you the differences. The PSL is really built around an AK action, the Draganov or SVD is a different beast all together. They all fire the 7.62x54R execpt for you Yugo and it fires 8MM...they had to be a little different. The Chinese is a real close copy of the Soviet rifle. There are also rifles out there that are called Tigers and they are basically a civilian version of the SVD.

All are getting pretty darn hard to find anymore...with the PSL being about the most easy to find. Around here before the world went nutz I saw PSL's going for $1800....or I guess I should say that is what the guy was asking. Real SVD will be somewhere in the $4k+ range.

Mine was right at $500 OTD. Sales tax, credit card %, everything.

Then a few months later they went down $50-$70, but I wouldn't be surprised if the price has jumped considerably due to the current climate.

I'm super satisfied that it's been so reliable and hasn't shown anything, but wear and tear.

As elsewhere, seems all the good guns are pretty scarce around here!

I have purchased plenty of things from there, but never listed anything on it.

Maybe its the 5 points a gun adds, but Susan might need to make an appearance in the Toxic Over 40 thread.

I'd rather have the real Yugo M76...

I have not checked in a while but they are/were still available at SOG....IIRC they are less than $2k.

Personally I own a PSL and like it quite a bit. At 200 yards (that is as far as our club range goes out) it will put 10 in the area the size of a football shooting pretty quick, not giving the barrel a chance to cool down....they all have pretty thin barrels and tend to string after they get hot.

Always wanted a real SVD or even a Tiger worked over to look like one, but that is out of sight now. I have never fired the Yugo, but those that have them seem to like them. It is/was such a strange country....only one I know that had two battle planes, one if attacked by NATO, the other if attacked by Warsaw Pact. Tito and Franco in spain seem to be cut from the same cloth in that aspect.....Guess that is why I always look at the CETME as well.

I like the 308 quite a bit, not as harsh, crisp...whatever as the 3006, but I already have two that fire the same basic thing in 7.5 french one in a bolt gun the other in an 49/56, they are so much nicer to shoot over a Garand/1903...not as hard on my old broken shoulder...even with recoil pads. 7.5 french is basically a 308.

My understanding is, Yugo (Zastava) used better steel and built better AK-type guns than any other nation. I may be partial to it, but if you put similar guns built on the same platform from several nations, you will see the difference for yourself... CZ (Czech), and CZ (Crvena Zastava - Yugo) are probably amongst highest quality.

They are a brick, but the others work and do the job they are designed to do....engage man sized targets at ranges past the normal weapons carried by the troops.

I have fondled them before and found them to be a little less friendly feeling to the body....the psl and norinco (never even seen in the flesh a tiger or svd) felt like they are built to your body.

But I think after talking to the people that own all three they are all actually pretty darn close to eachother.

Another thing to note, a lot of Yugo (and Czech) gunsmiths and machinists of the era were schooled in post war Germany. The equipment was also German built. Whereas, Bulgarians, Romanians and Poles were schooled by the Russians. *
