Hopefully somebody can point me in the right direction.. I'm looking for something to put on my AK and I just wanted to get a better idea of where all to look. I haven't decided on exactly what I want yet, but it'll be easier once I actually see what is available.

Anyway, where are the best places to be looking for them? I've been keeping an eye on EE without much luck. I know Kalinka has them but I've heard bad things. Where else should I be looking, and what should I be looking for exactly? (Trying to stay in the lower price ranges).


Thanks for the help

Oleg also has a layaway plan Enjoy the Kashtan, it's a perfect optic for the 5.45.

Can I reasonably expect most of the combloc POSP scopes sold nowadays to use watch batteries that are easily available in the USA?? As in I can find them at Walmart??

Thanks, Bill

Both Kalinka's and Eastwave's product descriptions state what kind of batteries a particular scope takes. A lot of PSOs and POSPs take AA batteries as well. It often depends on the age of the scope, things changed-up over the years.

One more question. I know these are not night force level optics, but how good is the quality of glass inthese $250 scopes? At least as good as a walmart weaver scope? Thanks
Link Posted: 11/18/2012 1:08:35 PM EST
The glass is very decent and usable. Decent clarity and brightness. It's not world class, but doesn't cost like it either. A lower-end Weaver or Bushnell is a good comparison. The glass is not as nice as my Weaver Grand Slam or Super Slam scopes, but they are in another price range.

The turrets on most POSPs are quite coarse at 1 MOA per click, some POSPs offer .5 MOA turrets (the Pro line for example). Just something to be aware of if you didn't already know.

I just ordered, from Oleg, and he was very prompt answering email questions. I hope the turnaround on the optic is just as fast.

UDATE: Oleg shipped the same day my funds arrived. He'll get my repeat business.
