    Are there any other semi auto's besides for the Dragunov and clones?

    Are there any other bolt actions in anything besides for the Mosin?

    Not always, I think someone found one at the last PDX show for around $500.

    There is also the Winchester Model 1895.

    Let me pose this question.

    I had a dream last night about my Romak III (I know its sad when I dream about guns) In my dream I sawed down the barrel.

    It got me to thinking, what if I took a Dragunov clone, had the barrel professionally chopped to around 16"-18". this would give me an AK style carbine with some serious knockdown power.

    Would the piston system still cycle with a shorter barrel?

    after a little research I found that they made a paratrooper PSL.

    Why not just get an AK chambered in 308??

    54R is much cheaper ammo.

    .308 .50 a rd

    7.62x54R .17 a rd

    Hmmmm get more bang for the buck literally with the 7.62x54R

    personally i have a hard time trowing .50 cent pcs down range unless im hunting or preparing to hunt

    i think the OP should ask the shop he plans to have cut it what it will do im sure it wont effect performance just hurt the accuracy a little.

    what they need is a US compliance kit for these to get rid of that heavy thumbhole stock and replace with light weigh poly

    Last I checked on gunbroker they were, didn't used to be though. Tried to get one for a month or so then went the PSL route instead. They were upwards of $1k last I saw. Cool gun though!

    Someone had a run of "paratrooper" PSLs that had either a 16" or 18" bbl and no scope.

    It might have been AIM or InterOrdnance I cannot remember.


    I wish they had a Saiga in 762x54r.
