    This rifle was on the racks at one of my local firearms dealers a little while ago. The price tag was about $2,500 I believe, and the thing that had me perplexed was that this is in California; it has detachable mag, pistol grip and is semi-auto so is this a pre-ban rifle?

    I don't think the price justified it but it did come with an interesting scope that had the nuclear logo on it. Has anyone ever shot/owned one. I do not plan on purchasing it, it was just a very out-of-the-ordinary weapon and was wondering if it was decent. What would be a fair price for one anyway?

    It is pre-ban.

    Ok, I figured it had to be with its "evil, world destroying" features. After reading up on it on wikipedia it seems reasonably accurate, but for its role as a sniper i wouldn't trust its 2 MoA.

    The SVD, PSL and M76 aren't "sniper rifles" as we in the West understand them.

    Think of them more as "designated marksman rifles".

    Okay thats what I meant, I don't believe snipers are semi-auto. But for a DMR rifle its accuracy seems weak compared to that of an AR-10 built for the same purpose and the 8mm Mauser has heavier recoil than that of a .308

    2Moa = Minutes of enemy soldiers out to about 900-1000 yards, that is plenty accurate for military use.

    i also suspect that they actualy took there time in measuring there accuracy, for a 20round+ group, 2MoA is preaty good, considering that most run-of-the-mill AR15 open up to up to 4 MoA if you go for large group size.

    There's still a ban in California on any centerfire rifle with a detachable magazine and a pistol grip. The guns that existed in the state prior to the ban must have been registered or transferred out of state. Unlike places like NY, these registered guns cannot be transferred to another person in California. I'd very curious to know under what circumstances this gun is for sale.

    2 MOA will hit every time out to about 500 yards. lucky shots would extend its use far beyond that.

    Okay so I guess it is good enough for military use but it wouldn't be my top pick. I didn't ask the dealer about the rifle because the store was busy and is known for its poor customer service.
