This spring (2016) some really nice Ex-PUs were selling on the trader(here) for 250$ to 300$, as I recall. "PU sniper rifles" were built on separate production lines, with higher quality than ordinary infantry rifles. Over here where I live, our best shooters are ex-PU's, and I don't think it's just a happy coincidence.

He used the iron sights, on his 44 Izhvesk PU .
