The Kashtan 1P78 Military Collimating Dual Black/Green German Post Reticle Tactical Combat AK Rifle Scope is exclusively exported by Kalinka Optics. This is the newest collimator scope made for the Kalashnikov.
This is the newest collimator scope made for the Kalashnikov. Proof of that is in where you will find it, on the rifles of elite units in Russia's Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD): police, Spetznaz Special Forces, OMON, etc. Such units aren't going to use anything but the best. The Kashatan and the Obzor are the leading edge of collimating technology from the NPZ factory. The scope reticle is well known German Post also used in Rakurs scopes. It not only fills the role of the traditional CQB short range/fast acquisition sight, but also has unique features designed specifically for longer range combat shooting. The reticle and scope ability is geared for a single shot kill on an AK in day to heavy dusk conditions. It's fully coated prismatic lens system provides a remarkable, high contrast, wide angle field of view allowing for fast acquisition of moving and spaced targets. You have an unlimited field of view and maximum ability to register incoming targets. The scope has very accurate windage and elevation adjustments in small increments (every turret' click moves POI by 3 cm at 100 m). The special protective lens coatings protect the scope from scratching and fouling in the extreme battlefield conditions where it was designed to operate. A light-dividing mechanical and coating system produces exceptional dual visualization of the target and reticle at the same time so you see both in high resolution for better targeting. Notice the extreme temperature rating on this scope, you'll quit before it will. It comes with a heavy duty carry case, screwdriver and safe bag. A definite BEST CHOICE! Compare the Kashtan to Trijicon scopes and you'll find the performance equal or better at a lower price. This particular AK Long Mount S3 version was designed for rifles with unfolded stock (about 365 mm from the side rail to butt pad) to provoide the proper eye relief for comfortable shooting.
