    Tiger

    Picked this up at a local gun show last weekend. California Armory Tiger. Told it was from an estate sale and unfired. Based by the condition, it is unfired (I plan to rectify this). No carbon or wear. Included everything pictured. Not sure why the Maadi sling with Chinese leather keeper. Also included an adjustable gas cylinder. Unfortunately they did not have the manuals or original sling. Wanted one of these for a while now!!

















    Few questions:
    Other than the manuals and the sling, am I missing anything else that would have come with it?
    Did they come with that bayonet? It's new and unnumbered.
    Any idea of where to find the manuals and sling? I know the certificate in the manual would not match my rifle but I would like to find one anyway.
    Battery that came with it is dead. Where can I find the adapter to make watch batteries work? I checked Kalinka but did not see one.
    Where is a good place to find matching wood handguards? I prefer that look.


    Comrades.

    Yeah, from what I read the California Armory rifles had the flash hider, 1200M rear sight, SVD stock set and a couple 10 rd magazines. Only about 700 were imported. Never actually thought I would ever see one in person, let alone be in a position to buy one.

    Thanks, I got the SVT from a guy that bought it back in the 90's. He never shot it and still had the box, paperwork oil bottle and some tools for it.

    Not looking to sell it. It functions fine so far. This one has a good gas piston/cylinder. I think most problems can be tracked back to one that's corroded or worn.

    You're always finding the good stuff around here!

    I haven't been to a show in a while as they are always full of more beanie babies and beef jerky than cool rifles.

    get it inside or parking lot deal?


    I still have my NDM86 . But wish I still had my Tiger too.

    Inside on a table. Guy said it was from an estate sale. They also had a couple Galils and a few other cool rifles. Is your NDM 7.62x54 or .308?

    I think the only thing that's missing is the leather rifle case/bag. They came in black, brown, gray or tan I believe. I think the sling might be original with this even though it looks like a Chinese keeper and Maadi sling.

    You should get over to Russiansurplus.net and get yourself an svd accessory pouch, mag pouch and leather rifle case to top this off. That's what I'd do anyway.
