I've been pouring through any high quality manufacturers of this style of reticle- in particular those calibrated for western ammunition types (like 5.56, and .308). So far I've only found stuff from IOR Valdada... But it seems like they stopped their Dragunov style reticle a few years back.

So a few questions:

1. Is there any place I can find these style IOR valdada Dragunov optics?

2. Is there any other high quality maker (not POSP\PSO) of this style of optic?

The only thing I know of are the POSP and PSO.

Pretty cool reticle.

I know that IOR Valdada used to make some, but discontinued them do the "mixed history" behind the reticule.

Have you tried Kalinkaoptics.com?

I'd like to hear more.

IOR Valdada's M1 and M2 scopes have a ton of reticules available to them. Back before 2007 (roughly?) they also included the Dragunov style reticule on their scopes and from what I understand had them calibrated to operate with .308\.223 for western markets.

They're pretty rare now though.

They're of superior quality to anything you can get in the PSO or POSP line. Allegedly, DSARMS still has these type of scopes with the Drag reticule for sale.

I think most likely this is just an old page and they have yet to update it in the past few years.

@Primal,

Yea, I've tried them. But they just sell POSP and VMAZ scopes and I'm dubious of their quality. PSO is generally recognized to be of a higher grade, but they don't make anything that doesn't work with AK-style mounts. So western weapons obviously cannot work with them.
