So lately ive been noticing these Dragunov style rifles. Thinking of selling my M14 to get one of those. Worth it or no? I can always save up. part of the reason is I can still use the Drag for hunting and the ammo is way cheaper than 308 ammo.
What do you guys think?

Save up, Dragunov/PSLs arent all that expensive. I couldnt imagine my collection without my M1a. If you think youll just end up buying another m14 later then keep the one you have.

I wouldn't trade my M1A for 3 PSLs.

The Polytech M14 is more accurate than the Dragunov style (Romanian PSL) rifles.

Unless you are buying an actual Dragunov, keep the M14.

There are better hunting loads for 7.62x51mm/.308 than there are for 7.62x54mmR.

Don't trade off the M14 for a PSL. ROMAK-3 PSLs are not Dragunov rifles. They might kind of look similar, but they are very much so different.

Now, if you could trade your M14 for an actual Dragunov SVD, I'd say go for it!

PSL=$600-700

Dragunov=$2000+

Not even remotely close. And Dragunovs are expensive because of their rarity, not because they are particularly fantastic guns.

OK well that answers my question:D thanx guys. The 14 stays. Now to get to saving:D I thought PSL/Drags were sniper rifles and had some accuracy.

...keep her. As others have posted, PSL's are a dime a dozen.;)

If you must have a PSL, keep the M14 and start saving.

If I'm not mistaken they are supposed to be better with some of the specially made Russian cartridges. Im sure someone on here knows the specifics about that.

7N1 or 7N14 ammo works very well in an SVD (Snayperskaya Vintovka Dragunova). I don't know jack about the PSL, except that it isn't a Dragunov-designed firearm and it shares nothing in common with the SVD.

This is just the kind of "I'll repeat what I've heard elsewhere" kind of BS that I'm frankly sick of. The PSL is used in many armies to this day, to the detriment of NATO troops everywhere.

It is a fearsome, legitimate weapon. There is far too much hype around the SVD seeing as how they are so rare. Even though the PSL is no Dragunov, you still can't discount it. However, judging by your comment, I'd have more luck talking to a brick wall.

Well since the PSL/Drag is a actual service weapon I would say it has to have some degree of accuracy. Im gonna save up some money and maybe pick one up. Worse that happens is I sell it cause i dont like it

To put it simply, the PSL is an AK-47 with a better barrel.

More so...

It all depends on a rifle and ammo when it comes down to PSL vs M1A. Both are quite equal in their best conditions/selection.
I personally would take PSL as it's a lighter and simpler rifle that does the same thing and just as well.

Everyone has it all wrong, sell the M1A, they're dangerous! It is imperative you let me destroy it, I'll only charge you $50.

I would not trade my PSL for an M14...I have seen decked out M14s and their results are no better and in some cases, worse than my PSL. As I have said, my PSL will give a precision rifle a run for its money.

$5k would not let me go of my PSL. At $6k though, I start to think motorcycles and guns become an afterthought.
