We understand that with so many choices of optics and mounts available, it can be overwhelming to sort through all the options and select the best components for your needs. The KOM series of pre-mounted optics from Kalinka Optics Warehouse take all of the guesswork out of this process allowing you to purchase one item and know that you are getting the right parts the first time. Kalinka has every KOM optic assembled and aligned at the factory using collimating equipment to produce a true “mount and shoot” optic that is ready to use the second you receive it. All KOM optics offer the lowest possible mount height for AK, SVD and SKS/Mosin-Nagant rifles for that perfect cheek weld while providing true center bore alignment as well. During the assembly process we set each optic for ideal eye-relief and the adjustable diopter ring allows for even finer tuning for that perfectly clear view. The KOM series is available in several fixed and variable magnifications to allow customers to choose the right amount of magnification for their needs. Each is also available in several heights; 30mm, 40mm, 47mm, 59mm, 65mm and 75mm. AK rifles and variants require a minimum of 59mm and SVD rifles require a minimum of 47mm. SKS and Mosin-Nagant rifles equipped with a side rail can use all heights of KOM optics. To determine what height it right for you, simply measure from the center of your side rail to the top of the receiver cover. This will be the clearance amount your rifle requires. It is recommended to select a higher mount than the minimum if you wish to use your iron sights as well. Larger magnifications (48mm and up) may require you to go up two additional heights. Picatinny Monoblock mounts fit all Picatinny rails.

- Nice scope. VEPR54 read entire review....Review by Chris06.06.2016
Quality Ruggedness Price Value
The mount is sturdy and locks up nicely.
Unfortunately you cannot use this setup on a VEPR54 with this scope as it will not clear the rear sight, nor will it clear the trunion even if you remove the sight. I originally bought the 59mm set but changed it to the 65mm in hopes it would clear. No go. A 69mm would just do it but it is not offered. Front diameter of scope is just to big.
I will use the mount for another AK style rifle with a smaller optic. Luckily I had an older UTG mount and some 1" rings from an older setup that I used and this gave me the clearance to get the scope on without modification to the rifle.
At the range the scope was easily sighted in and held its zero even with the extra high recoil of the 7.62x54R round. The parallax adjustment worked like a champ and got a few nice comments from others at the range who looked at it. All in all I think I got a good deal.
