I don't think I ever got a better deal on a scope. Look at it, its so tuff! And clear and accurate as any scope 3 times the cost. I paid $79 and got a steal IMO, they sell for a little more as of late.

.

POSP4x24 + SAR3 + versipod +RSA Trigger + Lapped Crown = 1moa.

Go to a ROMAK-3/PSL/SSG-97/et. al. and you could do better than that even at longer distances.

Romanian copy of the Dragunov for the win!

Actually the Romak 3/PSL is nota Dragunov copy although it is often marketd that way. It uses the long stroke Ak gas system, not the short stroke SVD system. It is just longer barrled, up calibered, with a stiffer reciever than a standard AK.

A Dragunov/Russian Tiger(Commercial name) Costs atleast 2x as much and is still less accurate than most bolt guns on the market that fill the sniper role.

The only areas I knowingly lack in are modern blackpowder rifles since I never use them as well as some optics since I am a fan of actually teaching people to use iron sights. I mean they used to shoot 800-1000 yards with open sights at the creedmore matches. Thats with blackpowder era cartridges and manufactured guns. If we could only teach our infantrymen to shoot like that. Best I can manage is with my K98 and thats a man sized target at 300yrds. Thats standing I might be able to do it at 400 resting on a bench.

I know that. And BTW, the Tigr/Tiger is not a "proper" Dragunov since it only has a 20" "Sporter" barrel. Same action though. There's also the Chinese NDM-86 which is also a "proper" Dragunov copy except that it comes in .308.

I only said the ROMAK-3 since it's much cheaper and easier to find than the Dragunov and performs nearly as well. The ROMAK-3 uses a modified RPK action, actually.

The RPK action is the long stroke Kalashnikov action. Its a beefed up AK for more prolonged automatic fire and thats it. Hell the VEPR AK's are built on RPK recievers.

And a Tiger is the closest thing you are going to get to an SVD.

Also they do come in the proper length you just havent seen one yet

Back from the dead!! I thought I would bump this since I found it.

I am thinking about adding an optic to my wasr since its got the rail, why not?

It seems that scopes/red dots for it are pretty cheap too.

So I am curious to know of any good websites to buy from? I found this one:

http://www.eastwave.ca/index.html

And found this scope like the OP and a red dot that I have no idea how good it is. I heard the kobra is good but wow its a little pricey.

red dot: http://www.eastwave.ca/products/scopes/pka.html

same scope as OP: http://www.eastwave.ca/products/scopes/posp4x24v.html

I would like to just have a red dot on it, or the holographic Kobra sight but would like to keep it under $200. The psop4x24 seems to be "like" an acog more or less. fixed 4x zoom and illumination.

I haven't messed with side mount optics too much. Some are better than others... I mean, the bad ones will tend to loosen up. Also watch out for low quality replica/airsoft mounts being sold as the real thing.

The USMC still shoots man size targets for qualification out to 500. Though, with the ACOG quickly becoming standard issue, very few are using iron sights anymore.

Does anyone know anyone with this site, or have one themselves?

http://www.eastwave.ca/products/scopes/pdk23.html

On ar15.com someone recommended it, but I cant find a whole lot of people using these types of sights. Seems like either people stick with the irons or tapco the hell out of their rifle into oblivion.

Only a few seem to go after the side mount & russian optics.
