I am considering one of the Druganov scopes for a VEPR I am getting. Problem is, I don't know a thing about the scopes. Anything specific to look for? I have looked at one of the Russian PSO 4x scopes with mounts. Are they pretty solid/reliable? What are the going prices? Thanks!

I had a 6x illuminated that I got for $100 or so. Light gathering is excellent, the way it mounts to the side rail is very robust, and the scope itself is built like a T-54 tank. That being said, the length of the objective tube on mine interfered with the rear iron sight, as in actually physically touching it, which made mounting it a real bitch. Also, be aware that putting a scope on your bullet-hose AK does not turn it into an accurate rifle, just a bullet-hose AK that has a scope on it now. If your rifle shot 4 inch groups at 100 yards before, this will not make it shoot 2 inch groups unless its you and not the gun.

That being said, they are excellent for the money. Sometime I'll get a 4x that mounts to the gun correctly-- I think the 6x I had was for a Dragunov, not for an AK, although it still mounted fine.

Thanks for the info. I don't expect the rifle to become a target gun, but I figured it would be fun to gun to plink with.

It does help with the fun factor and puts the "evil" factor through the roof.

What's a good online distributor for these? I'm realizing now that the one I had interfered with the iron sights because it was an SVD type and not an AK type, so it was too low. I might try a 4x with the correct mount instead this time. Who has em for cheap?
