Hello CGN Membership,
-This is the new thread for the 308 Dragunov prototype.
-All updates will be posted to this thread and kept separate from the Interarms Model 2013 Sporter SPBAR 7.62x39 and 5.45x39.
Quick FYI on this concept:
-At the request of several members on CGN we have started to explore making this rifle.
-We are very early stages and need to procure several items to create a prototype (we do not have this prototype started aside from aesthetic design features and a few on hand parts).
-We have discussed this with several of our Dealers and they agree it would be a great seller if it can be brought in at a reasonable price point.
-We feel that we will be able to get a prototype in for FRT Classification this year.
-We are not 100% on whether we could make a production lot for sale this year as there are still too many moving parts.
-With the recent purchase of Herrett Custom Stock Co. we now have the ability to produce a replica stock of the highest quality.
-We have ordered barrel blanks and we will start with these parts first.
-We have suitable magazines in stock.
-Due to name/trade infringements, this rifle would most likely be branded Interarms.
-Please let us know what you think a reasonable price would be. Obviously we know very little about this gun so far so we will make some assumptions: milled and high quality parts, chromed barrels, high quality custom stocks.
This project is still at 30,000 feet but I will keep you posted as this concept moves forward.
