Selling the gun I figured this
out with. Factory Romanian built PSL-54C imported by Century. About 300-400 rds fired.
First 5 milsurp cheapie steel cased stuff from decades ago stay under 2.5", sometimes even < 2" out of a cold barrel. Warm barrel opens to 3"-4". TIP-2 scope included and comes with 1 factory mag.
$1200 cash FTF in the Central KS area, can travel a ways to meet FTF, else shipping on your dime.
Electronic payments accepted or USPS MO ship upon receipt, else checks must clear prior to shipping.
