You didn't see a Dragunov SVD at that price, you saw a ROMAK-3/PSL; they are very different.
Just about the only things the same is the cartridge they shoot and the general appearance.
Also, there are PSL's to be had for around $700 right now online. Add in a $20 ship and $15 transfer and you're saving over $100.
As for color copies, if I'm remembering correctly, Jim675 has some to sell, or at least used to: http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/view_to...230453#p230453
