Just bought a scope less Romanian PSL from Centerfire. What are my scope choices? Best bang for the buck?

6x42 or 8x42 POSP would be nice choices. A BP-02 and the scope of your choosing would work well also.

Correct me if I am wrong but for my PSL I need a SVD mount scope, right?

Yup, you need the SVD mount.. The POSP 8x42 is a fine choice. Best overall deal is from Kalinka Optics....you can save about $30 but you'll have to order it from one of those Russian companies and then wait a couple weeks or more for it and if there is a problem you'll be shipping it back to Russia.

Yes, SVD mount.

I use a 6x42 POSP w/ 1000m range-finder reticle. Use it out to 500 with good results.

I just bought a PSL.

Put a low mount from Kalinka on it and topped it with a Bushnell 3200 10X. Got the scope on ebay for $180 shipped (new)

1P21 3x-9x, hands-down. The scope has a built-in BDC for the 7.62x54 rd so once you determine range w/the built-in rangefinder you just dial magnification to match (3x = 300m, 5x = 500m, 7.5x = 750m, etc), hold dead-on & squeeze off the rd. Nothing's faster for quick-ranging & COM shots, IMHO (this was my fav scope on my .308 NDM-86 Dragunovs).

ETA: Since you adjust magnification in order to determine range, both magnification & bullet-drop are set automatically during the ranging process.

I admit to lusting after the IP21...what keeps me away is the price. I wish the black finish version was available and if it were I'd probably go for one. One thing that surprised me when I saw one close up is that it's a monster and weighs close to 2 pounds. But the way it mounts looks like it puts the bulk of the weight over the center of gravity for the rifle. Besides I shoot mostly with a bipod so it's sort of moot. There's supposed to be a 4-12 power version in black finish but I've yet to see one.that's actually available.

HTH

ETA: I just checked Kalinka and they now carry the black finish IP21...$400 plus shipping. I'm in trouble now

All good choices listed here I went with the 6x42 as a good overall compromise for what I wanted and it was cheap under 200 bucks shipped!

I went out shooting my sgl20 up in the hills, there were some Russian Americans up there with a bunch of guns including a psl, was incredible how loud it was, they came down and asked me if we had a ar15 they were planning on buying one and took a look at my rifle saw the factory logo and said yup thats the best of em. They were really friendly, shoulda asked them if I could shoot the psl :P

I have a 4-12 zoom posp scope I just picked up, I have no idea what battery it uses, anyone else have one of these?
