If you're thinking about a PSOP scope for your AK, check out this review I published this week about my 8x42 PSOP scope.

"You do have to use somewhat delicate tools." *Picture of mallet and screwdriver pops up on screen*

Reminds me of working on circuit boards with a saw-zall.

I do think you need to downplay the issue with the scope being offset. I have never found it to be an issue if you sight the gun in properly. Just zero it to the right for however far offset the scope it, 1/2" IIRC (Too comfy in my chair to go get my Saiga and measure.), and you'll be fine for the size targets the gun is intended for. The bullet will impact a fraction of an inch to the right of the POI, but it will do so at any range, then you only have to worry about elevation and wind.
I don't carry a gun to go looking for trouble, I carry a gun in case trouble finds me.

on a PSL/SSG

Got one on a PSL 7.62x54R. (well actually, its stamped SSG-97) Had a heck of a time getting the mount to secure on the bracket, but once adjusted, it has stayed. I will NEVER take it off,.............. again. NOTE there are a variety of Soviet side rails, and certain clamps will only fit certain rails. KNOW before you buy.

The "clicks" are pretty coarse, can't remember exactly, but definitely not US type 1/4 MOA. More like 1 MOA. No kidding.

Mine has been repeatable. I've had it out in the rain a bit, no fogging. The non centered reticle takes some getting used to. I set up a target 1.5 meters tall and ranged and shot at it out to 400 yds + w/ no probs. But at 5- 600 plus it was a roll of the dice,more of the limit of the rifle than of the scope.

The lit reticle is neat and I have carried it on purpose for some evening hunts for deer in shooting houses for that reason. No deer w/ a PSL......yet.

I down loaded the entire scope manual from the KALINKA website. Pretty useful, if not essential, for anybody using one.
