hey everyone, I wanna clear up everything about this scope. 5 guys on my professional team have this scope. It is an astounding copy of the SVD PSO-1 DMR scope, this is, classified as a DMR scope being only 4x zoom but that is all you need for it. And as I said, it is a COPY. all these issues I hear about the scope not going on are user error. If you look at the latch that on the mounting system you will see a small silver bolt that looks like a round castle. Called, a Castle Bolt. (Large concept I know) you must hold down the castle bolt. And turn the screw to raise or lower the height of the rail latch. It will fit on ANY SVD without filing or modification IF you adjust the castle bolt. Look on YouTube for simple tutorials. "How to adjust the castle bolt on PSO-1 airsoft"
The ONLY issue I have seen with this scope is a very rare factory defect where the Chevron reticle is tipped sideways, and is not fixable unless you entire disassemble the scope, and realign the lens with the fiber optic on it. It is rare but can happen. Before you even attempt to get this scope on, take the scope, turn it upside down and balance it on the wordage knob on top on a flat surface, turn on the illumination, and look thought it. If its not entirely parallel to the table send it back and the next one will be perfect.
Other than that I have no complaints about the scope. If you know anything about wiring I would solder the wires for a tighter connection, and maybe even simplified, tape them together, because there are two wires that power that optic, just put a piece of electrical tape to hold the two wires tiger, then tape them to the actual scope wherever they fit and look nice. This will eliminate any issues with wires snagging and tearing.
I give this scope a 9/10. It is nothing compared to the true USSR Issue PSOP which I run on my AIM GBB SVD. But it is astounding airsoft quality reproduction. The chevron reticle is spaced perfectly, and is easy to use if you know how.
Here is how you use the chevron I aiming system. If you google a chevron reticle and look for reference it is easiest.
1: the bottom line that is running all the way across the scope, line that up with the curved line. Whatever you are aiming at, place their feet at the line, and they're head should hit the top of the curved line. When you get your reference point, slide your scope over just a tad, to where it reaches center wi the arrows, and there's your theoretical headshot. For airsoft it works absolutely perfect of you know how far your gun shoots at varied distances. I hope this review aids many people in buying this scope and keeping the SVD True to its beautiful look.
