how hard is it to find a PSG-1 for sale if you have the cash for it?

I've seen them go from $11-18K, depending on condition, but like Straightgrain said it depends on how much you're willing to spend.

Folks here are real sticklers for original parts re: their collecibility, but there are some specialty parts makers and gunsmiths that enhance the value of some of these rifles, ie like an Urbach barrel or reworked welded receivers, etc. And wait till you get this, there are some folks here that have two of these fine HK specimens in LNIB condition!

and their are some hear that buy these rifles and actually shoot them, what are you going to do with your money buy a gun to let it sit their ? might as well just put your money in a savings account
or buy a gun and shoot it and actually know if the rifle is capable of the job it was designed for.

i built an msg90 and spray painted it brown and green, if you want somthing that is just for looks spend themoney on a semi auto barret

no matter how many rounds are threw it the psg1 commands an expensive price ( factory guns that is ) i would have one built or buy the urbach clone off ebay and shoot the piss out of it. or build an msg90 and shoot ground hogs till the sun goes down

well i built an msg90 clone g3 bolt head and carrier, msg90 lower with psg trigger, 26" barrel ( douglas ) msg90 stock with rubber buttpad.... i can shoot hornady 168 match bullet with 42.7 gr blc2 cci primer in a winchester casing at .5-.7" @ 100 my receiver has also been stiffend and psg forarm as well.

iam sure if i could build a sub moa gun the real thing is right on par with sub moa accuracy.... the biggest let down to me is it took about 350 rounds to break the barrel in and get the groups to tighten up how ever that also gives a person enough rounds on the gun to feel good and practice so.

i say the gun is sub moa.... and can compete with the semi auto ar-10's

Thanks guys ... I was wondering as I've heard good things about the PSG-1 and being a FAL shooter the accuracy of other 7.62x51 semi's is of interest .... (a mate had his worked FAL doing .8" five shot groups at 100 meters yesterday with hand loaded 175 grain SMKs ... not too shabby eh? :)

You can not go wrong with a PSG1!!!! They are excellent weapons and quite accurate. The price varies on these things depending on if it comes with the case, battery charger, correct scope, etc.
If you are referring to the GB ad with the PSG1 that looks like it has been put into a meat grinder for 14k I have spoke with him and he is firm at that price. I have seen new ones go for that with out the box but I would never pay that for 1.

Not to steal the thread, but does anyone here know how accurate the PSG-1 is with quality ammo .... ? .... I have heard 1MOA .... true/false?
I've never had professional shooting instruction and I can keep my factory SR9T, in TC configuration with NO stiffening rails, around 0.5 MOA at 200 meters, so the PSG1 has got to shoot better than 1 MOA. If I spent that kind of scratch and it didn't, I'd be very upset...

LOL, there is no doubt that there are a hundred bolt action .308's that are more accurate too and would save you lots of $ but none of the rifles you mentioned are the venerated holy grail of HK that the PSG-1 is.
That's what commands the price, not the accuracy.

i dont deny the holy grail of hk's but I can say that i do not know why its the holy grail ? is it because you can tell some one you spent more money then them on a rifle ? because if its accuracy your chaseing your spending the money foolishly.

atleast thats what they say over at snipershide.com

No, the reason it's the "holy grail of HK rifles" is because of its relative rarity. Anyone can go buy a more accurate bolt gun that was manufactured last month. A pSG1 someone finds to buy was banned from import decades ago.
