Default DSA RPD for $1525

This seems like a pretty good deal,

Any input on price, this weapon for this price, and the semi-auto RPD would be very much appreciated.

Thanks ahead.

DSA makes an excellent receiver and some of the parts sets they are building on are like new.
Polish built parts are nicer than the others IMHO.

The RPD is a great belt fed that is one man portable without the need for a tripod or bipod.
Carbine versions look sweet but I still like the full size.

The only downside is the striker design trigger in 99% of RPD / DPM conversions. Vector arms did it a little different by making a custom buttstock and striker spring / guide set up.

I own one of DSA's tactical RPD's. I had some issues with initially but they got them worked out. It is a nice rifle but heavy as hell, even with the shortened & fluted barrel. I paid over $2K for mine so I would say ~$1500 isn't a bad deal. Grab extra belts and drums when you get it.

it's local mp,

Now you've got me worried, LOL.

What part of Austin you live in, was It Leander area brother?

I'm working on some p38s, a possible AIM74, and now this, too...! That's the problem, I'm still recovering from 2 ac units, trip to Caymans, and taxes... I'm very money light now... Ugh.... So many guns, so little cash...
