An unissued Russian spotting scope. These scopes were issued to snipers and often used with the Dragunov SVD. Its in great shape and the glass appears to be flawless. It comes with the wrapped amber filter and cleaning cloth in the picture. We received this as part of a package with one of our original Russian military SVD's. Magnification is 4x-20x adjustable and it has a ranging reticle similar to the PSO-1 scope. Here's your chance to own a rare optic in excellent condition.

I got lazy and copied this ad because this guy knows more about this optic than I do.
I guess these are the range finder optics used for snipers in Russia.

Has the amber lens and clamp mount so you can pretty much mount it in many different places.

This optic was made for the Spetznaz, pretty cool if you ask me.

I can take ammo in trade, or perhaps a 22lr rifle.
