Where can I find a good one?

Since my really popular, "Who makes the best FAL" thread, I have been looking at other options, the idea of getting one of these just hit me today...
I have no idea about these either so any help would be appriciated.

I need a .308, I might be getting a used M1A soon, but if the deal falls through, I need backup.

Thank you

Here:

or here:

www.impactguns.com/store/chinese_dragunov.html

or here for a more reasonable price on a non-Dragunov that will work just as well:

Just out of curiosity, why would you want this type of weapon when better made, more accurate, more easily repaired and maintained, and less expensive rifles are out there?

The Dragunov was usually chambered in 7.62 x 54, not 7.62 x 51 (.308). If you have a source for one in .308, good luck.

Call CDNN (1-800-588-9500) and see if they still have any before you consider the other places. At last check I think they were $1699 (they raised the prices as their supply dwindled).

BTW: The ndm-86 in the impact guns photo is in 7.62x54 and not .308. I guess they didn't have the time to snap a pic off.

Crap!! I had no idea that they were so expensive!

You are right about the Dragunov. What would be a good semi-auto .308, other than the FAL, M1A/M14, or AR-10?

Does it have to be a military arm?

Nope

In that case may I suggest a Browning semi-auto? They are beautiful and very accurate right out of the box. HK also makes very fine sporting semi-autos as well and they are also easy on the eyes.

Get a VeprII in .308 and have it modified to take M14 mags. It's nothing more than a big AK and will cost far less than a Dragunov. They're supposed to be damn accurate as well as AK reliable.

Well it's certainly an interesting looking rifle, but I'd opt for the AR-10T at that price.

Might I suggest the Saiga rifle in .308. Plate shooter bought one last year and it was most impressive. I think they are wholesale at about $279. Lotsa gun for little money and since its on an AK action, it will give a lifetime of service without compalaint, plus you won't mind taking it into the field.

Get a G3 or HK 91



Ultra reliable in either version ( Civ/NFA ), and not heavy at all.
