The “Romanian Dragunov” Returns

The Firearm Blog has the scoop at the link and Circle 10 has released the information that the PSL 54C’s are returning to Century Arms.

These Dragunov lookalikes are actually overbuilt AK’s that fire the 7.62x54r and are designed as a designated marksman rifle. They fulfill that eastern/com-bloc want for the famous Russian semi-auto precision rifle at a much more affordable price point.

While I expect these to still be reasonable on the wallet it is expected the price will increase from where it was years ago. You could find bare rifles (no scope) for $499. I suspect the full Romanians, with matching serialized equipment, will command a solid premium while the ones coming with non matched hardware will be more reasonable. I don’t foresee either being astronomically priced.

Who’s getting one?
