The PSL (Romanian: Puşcă Semiautomată 7,62 mm cu Lunetă, model 1974, “scoped semi-automatic rifle”) is a Romanian military designated marksman rifle. Though similar in appearance, mission and specifications6 to the SVD Dragunov, the PSL rifle is mechanically completely different and based on the RPK light machine gun.
After Socialist Romania’s refusal to join the Invasion of Czechoslovakia, relations with the Soviet Union worsened. To counterbalance its reliance on Soviet military equipment, Romania accelerated the development of its arms industry mostly relying on Soviet blueprints and licences. As the Soviets were not eager to share technical information on the SVD Dragunov, a project commenced to develop the PSL.
PSL rifles were originally made at the Uzina Mecanică Cugir in Cugir (English pronounced Koogeere), Romania starting with 1974. After a consolidation of military arsenals when Romania joined NATO, a split of the factory occurred, production of the PSL continues in Cugir under the brand SC Fabrica de Arme Cugir SA (ARMS arsenal),9 Romania.
The PSL’s operation is the same long stroke piston action of the Kalashnikov family of weapons. Its appearance is similar to the Dragunov sniper rifle but they only share three components being the ammunition, optics, and bayonets.
