    Yes they do! Can't remember what they were asking for them at the time but sure wish I'd got one when CDNN was selling them.

    I clicked all 3 links. The prices listed are insane for starters. Next observation ... ZERO bids on any of them. The asking price is going up but the people willing to get sucked dry of their hard earned cash is NOT.

    I thought the same thing.

    A gun is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it; not what you're asking for it. Obviously, those guns aren't worth what they're asking.

    I have shot one of the Dragunov Russian rifles, it was one of those 1 of 1000 modified Tigers that came in to the US in the early 1990's. I was not impressed with the accuracy and frankly it kicked liked a mule. As a result I would not at the time even pay the 7 or 8 hundred they brought for them back then.

    You mean one like this:



    Even from my cold dead hand you would not be able to pry this one away from me! And yes, it isn't the most fun shooter.

    sadly , even the PSL clones are catching up rather quickly.


    Who would have thunk that the early TNguns builds that you couldn't give away for $400 with a scope and 4 mags would be bringing over $1800 now.

    Agree. I kick myself for passing on the last PSL-3 ( I think that was their designation) with an advertised price of $700. Too high I thought.

    As for my TIGR, I thought about replacing the front sight with the correct SVD sight/flash hider but it is selling for about half what I paid for the whole rifle!

    That's just crazy that a front sight flash hider bayonet lug would sell for hundreds of dollars. No reason it should cost that much.

    Agree, current prices that I have seen were in the area of $400. Absolutely crazy.

    "IIRC CDNN had them like $680"

    When they were clearing them those last several months, I think the price was $1699 or $1599.

    I bought 3
