    Looking for Opinions for a New Scope

    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently looking for a magnified optic for my AK. I plan to use it as my mid-distance rifle: 0-300 yards.

    So you have a full picture of my rifle it's a Century Arms C39 Sporter Rifle. It has been heavily modified externally, internally, not too much has changed. However, the top cover now has a rail on it. And I just had the scope adapter installed on the side of the receiver.

    I originally wanted the Primary Arms scope but they're sold out and they won't have a new one any time soon. I also considered the ACOG, but that's $1,000 and to be honest, that's a bit much to me. So, I've come to the Russian brand of AK scopes: PSOPs.

    I'd like to know what you think of them: have you used them before? Do you have any experience with them? Are they any good? Is the glass clear? Is the BDC functional, was it difficult to zero? Is it built well? Do you think I should forget this line of scopes altogether? Is the illumination any good? Could it be brighter? How long do the batteries last?

    I've narrowed it down to these specific models:

    POSP 8x42 w/ Black Finish, 400 Meter Rangefinder Rifle Scope, AK Version

    POSP 8x42 D VariPOSP w/ Independent Focus, Adjustable Illuminated Reticle and 1000 Meter Rangefinder Rifle Scope, AK Version

    POSP 8x42 PRO w/ Black Finish, 1000 Meter Rangefinder

    Do you think these will work? Or, should I go with a different model? There are many other models on that site so please let me know if you think another one may be better.

    Once again, I appreciate your time and opinion.

    Thanks again.

    I've used them all. All have worked and all were easy to zero. The 400 meter has the simunov reticle and works well with 7.62 x 39. I use it on my tabuk clone. The illumination can be seen in daylight, but to be honest, I've never needed it.

    Good. Excellent. Right, I know it's regulated for that caliber I just wanted to ensure it was accurate for it. I don't know much about the variant of AK. Good. Have you ever used it in darkness? Do you have any other opinions about it? Anything good, or bad? I'd love to know.

    Thanks for the input.

    Some would argue that an 8x fixed scope is overkill for an AK w/ 16" barrel. You'd probably be happier with a 1P3.5x21 (7.62x39 version) or something similar. Let the advice on russianoptics.net be your guide.

    I do like the finer adjustment on the PRO...great for precision shooting

    The independent focus on the D VariPOSP is great, especially for those with failing vision, but it's oos.

    I vote for the 8x42 PRO...given these three choices

    Myself, I shoot with x6 and a 3-9 Vari

    I like the 6x24 ,a little more magnification and no added weight .

    Right, that's the exact model I'm planning on going with. The D model to be specific.

    Okay. Thanks for the advice.
