Optic for the RPG's?
Link Posted: 8/13/2004 8:08:18 PM EDT
that is what i was thinking, but no one around had any RPG's...so unless he was just packing it for shits sake, i haven't tried it on an AK, considering i'm an AR man and i get my first (although i have handled very many of them) next week, LAYAWAY, i can't think of any place it would mount since it has a bottom lever, so it must be from an RPG. I was wondering if it had any value except for sentimental cause i capped him and got his ID card too....any suggestions? thanx

it is about 1 power, it has a battery compartment that takes a soviet battery, almost a c cell but not quite. it has an on/off switch that is in english. when you look through the sight there is a grid for a travelling vehicle, and a declination angle grid i think. it also has windage and elevation screws like a normal scope. the funny thing is that on the side plate it says "sight", 318, then the serial number. i wonder why it is all in english?

The top scope is an RPG sight I picked up in Iraq.

I wonder if those scope would work on an AK

The bottom one is made for an AK, it is just missing the mount. The top one wont fit though.

The sight is a PGO-7V, originally Soviet made, but I think yours is Chinese. They exported quite a few of them, hence the engrish writting. If your AK has the typical Soviet side rail, as in the AK-100 series, the PGO will fit. The problem is there's no real crosshair on the scope.

The prominant feature is the range finder in which you stick the target tank between the two lines. When the turret hits the top line and the bottom of the tracks hit the bottom line, that's your range. There's a complicated math formula that goes with it as well, preventing most from using the scope.

As far as value goes, they aren't worth a lot. The story behind yours is worth more than anything else.

The other picture showing the two scopes actually shows an SPG-9 recoiless rifle scope.

The sight on the top in the picture I posted is an ON-M80 not an SPG 9. It is arab made and was found with the instruction manual that shows how to install it on an RPG. Plus thats what we found them on was RPG's

You're right. I didn't look as carefully as I should have. The markings on the side should have told me that.

What are the optics like? Are they the same layout as a PGO-7?

Here is the sight picture, it is not a good photo and is turned sideways but you can see the crosshairs though...
