    Fuck that's a gorgeous rifle.

    Do you really need to sell it? Because that's one hell of a collector's piece and if you sell it, you sure as shit won't ever see it again in that kind of shape.

    When you say all accessories-do you have the correct dated sling, mags, cleaning kit/rod, pouches, and spares and book that the rifle shipped with? If so it will help the price quite a bit .

    Otherwise is what is in the picture all that you have?- don't get me wrong you have quite a nice piece worth at least 12k+ and probably more at auction. But if you got a complete rifle and its original components that would make for a really nice unknown piece here in the USA and add a fair amount to it's value as I have never see a rifle and it's complete set here before. Also if you have bring back paperwork you could probably get 14k or more without the accessories and add some more to that with the accessories.

    Pretty rifle none the less I wish I could afford one that nice.....

    In answer to the questions posted. i obtained this rifle from a elderly gentleman collector of military sniper rifles. He is now in poor health and starting to sell off some of his collection which this was one. Not knowing much about this rifle I decided to gamble and buy it. I will have post a pic of the accessories. the sling has a Russian mark of some kind, came with 40 rounds of ammo in clips in pouch, battery for infra red device in the wrapper with device. He is looking for the paper work and a metal lunch box type can he said that the scope came in. I don't hold out much hope of getting either. 1986 is the date under the triangle with arrow in it. Sounds like i may have stumble on to something by chance.

    There were a small number of these that were legally brought in from the 1st Gulf War. If I remember, they had originally been intended for museums, and then it was decided to sell them on the civilian market. They are worth boucoup bucks.

    OP - do you mind telling us what you paid?

    Grey areas on the importation, I wouldn't buy it, especially, from an online auction, you may send out a bank check, only to have someone show up wanting to take a look at it.

    This would be a really nice item in some agents private collection.

    Well you have a pretty nice set up there with the gun, that will help the price a bit. If you look on the other side/inside of the scope on the bracket mount there should be a set of numbers scribed or stamped also that will give you a good indication of how close the mismatch is between the rifle and the scope.

    Beautiful rifle. I've always said there are a lot of these that came in country via grey market the past 30 years. Always gonna be debate on their legality. I do see all sides of it . Ideally a papered example ends up being most desirable.

    The other thing to check is parts originality.

    Last few years, many have shown up in Europe as deactivated guns for collectors... The same source for many of the grey market kits. The same people sending saw cut Type 56s and AMP69s would have no problem (ignoring the legaility) dropping a chopped SVD in the mail either.

    OK, so, figure this was a desert storm bringback, which was impossible to do, at least among my friends who served there, who told me, any and all military arms, or ammo, was a complete no no, even if it was inert. And this included both officers and enlisted folks.

    What are the chances you luck into a complete set up, almost like it was found in an armory? I doubt your average conscript in tennis shoes lugged all that shit into the desert.

    This had to be like the movie "Three Kings" where the guys fall into Saddams gold horde.

    Hell with saw cut, how about complete rifles with the trigger parts welded together, and barrel blocked? I have seen them, and M16 receivers bare for sale, minus the guts.

    I don't doubt a few folks may risk that as well. Get a new barrel shipped in, some trigger parts, a little dremel cutting and grinding, whaddayah get?
