    Does anyone know of a POSP style scope with magnification higher than 8x ? I've looked at the Kalinkas and was very impressed with the example I saw.

    I'm building a Mosin sporter/tacticool/precision project (yes, I know it's a waste of time and money) and I'm trying to decide what to do for optics. Kalinka makes a side rail for the Mosin that will mount a POSP scope, and I think that would look pretty cool on my rifle. The only problem is I'd like something 10x or higher. Fixed magnification is fine. Even better if it has the funky Russian rangefinding reticle. This rifle is for fun, not serious competition, even though I'm probably going to drop a lot of cash before it's all said and done.

    I have one on my 91/30. It draws a crowd at the range .Its a fixed scope. It looks good on the mosin.

    Hi,
    Please excuse my old man, old school ignorance. What is POSP?
    Thanks. Acronymns are not living long in my brain any more without a reference at some point to their meaning.

    POSP are the civilian versions of the Soviet/Russian PSO scope designed for the SVD Dragunov rifle.

    I did look at Kalinka, but the POSP's only go to 8x.

    After looking again I'm not sure this would work too well - I read some other sites where people put them on Mosins, and it seems like it tends to be offset to the left.
