Dragunov by Russian-Fox Dragunov by Russian-Fox
My Dragunov Tiger, converted into military configuration with the addition of a laminated wood shoulder stock and foregrip.

Most sets of the stock and grips run for about $500, but I managed to track down a very nice set in New Zealand for only $341, and that includes the shipping cost. Plus, this shoulder stock features a recoil pad...most military stocks have only a simple metal endplate on the end.

Updated, had a flash suppressor with bayonet lug mounted.

Do you play Battlefield 3? Cause it seems like you would, they actually give you weapons stats in numbers, not bars

Actually, I don't. I don't play too many video games these days.

I bought an old used soviet one, not a new Belarus one. It's roughly in the same condition as my PSO-1 Soviet model, and it's coming from Ukraine, the resting place for a lot of soviet equipment.

Ah. Just waiting for it to arrive.

Forgive me of my ignorance but I was under the impression that flash hiders were a no no in NZ. I know you guys got a bit moe guns thant your Aussie Neighbors, but I know you guys are a bit more restrictive compared to us. Can you enlighten me on this? Oh and nice rifle, I used to this type before I sold it and got a Chinese type 79 (SVD). I take it that's also a new issue PSO-1 without the IR finder? Mine is the old one from Ukraine.

Flash hiders are not illegal, but you do need to get a special permit to get them.
Oddly enough, sound suppressors require no special permit at all, and by nature of how they work, they function as flash hiders as well.

And they are nice rifles. I can shatter golf ball size clay pigeons at 100 meters with it no problem. And that's without any sort of formal training, I just picked up the rifle and fired.

yes, the telescope is the newer one without the IR sensor.

No permit for suppressors but one for a flash hider? -_-....What favorite flavor of 54r does it like? Mine likes the 200 match from Russia.

Yeah. Firearms laws in most countries just don't make sense.
In the U.S., you're not allowed to have a shoulder stock on a firearm if the barrel length is less than 16 inches.

Mine likes 148 grain Russian made ammo. I can't get ahold of match ammo in 54r very often, so for the most part I shoot ordinary ball ammo.
