Which scope fits the 74 and is the correct model for the 5.45 with a side rail on it?

Seems to be several out there but not all of them are the right ones for this rifle.

Thanks in advance!

Check out Kalinka optics website. Some good stuff there, authentic commie type stuff to go on your rail.

Thanks, I'm looking at Kalinka now but confused with the options. Want the right scope for the 5.45 and that rifle rail.

Seems there are lots of scopes for different Russian rounds and there are differences in the scope rails over the years.

May email them to see which one is right. Again, lots of options for my simple mind!

The rail is the same for ak74 or ak47. As far as fitment to the rail goes, the POSP latching mech is adjustable to fit rail variations. If the Bullet drop compensator is equal increments, then its for any caliber. If they increments are staggered, i.e. not equal, its for 7.62x39 or 7.62x54r depending on the scope.
