I'm looking to get one too. Is there anything you can do to make it a better rifle ?

I have gone through a lot with mine. Basically PSL needs 2 things:
1 - Good trigger - RedStar arms works great.
2 - Good Ammo - S&B 174GR Match shoots 1.5"

I was considering ordering a Romak 3 from a SGN ad but 2-3 in groups isnt too impressive for something that is supposed to be a sniper rifle. even 1.5 is so-so for the money they want for those things.

Don't waste your money. They are just an overgrown AK. I don't like the Russian type scopes they use either.

They aren't supposed to be a "sniper" rifle. That is what everyone is calling them. It's a marketing ploy.

Even the real Russian Dragunovs are not true "sniper" rifles.

Sniper rifle or not, anything with that long of a barrel and costing that much cash should shoot better than a 1.5"- 2" grouping.

I'll tell you how mine does after I get it assembled. I can't see that it would only do 1.5" groups at 100 yards. My Regular SAR-1 does like 3" groups ( 4 shots) at 100 yards with Wolf 7.5 cents per round ammo and an 8x POSP scope.

OTOH, I am a pretty decent shooter, I have hit a quarter with a .338 Win. mag. at 100 yards with a 4x scope and just recently (2 weekends ago) put 2 - .243 bullets through the same hole (on successive shots, not like 15 shots and 2 happened to go through the same hole) at 100 yards with a 3-12x scope on my dads new hunting Rifle. I do think that one thing that will influence the rifles accuracy is the type of ammo that you repeatedly use. You can't use cheap ammo or I am sure that it will mar the finish of the barrel and subsequently make it less accurate. We'll see though. I hope to have mine together sometime soon, as soon as I get my parts. :)
