Hello,

I'm new to firearms and I want to purchase a scope for my AK47. I will be using a NV clip on so my interest is limited to daylight scopes. I'm not a wealthy person so the recommendations must be reasonable. I'm considering a 1.5-6 for a primary scope and a secondary 6-?. I need quality more than features. Ease of use is also a consideration as I'm ignorant and have no shame in admitting to it.

Please base your recommendations on personal experience. I'm highly capable of making my own mistakes in selection.

Shoot!

For an AK47 I would be looking at Leatherwood/HiLux CMR4 1-4x24 with the AK reticle.
 
if you are set on a 1.5-6x40, get Burris MTAC.

Hello,

As usual my budget was BS because I purchased a new Leupold VX6 2-12x42mm rifle scope with illuminated FireDot LR duplex reticle. I'm now shopping for a collimator and  I have not been able to locate a Leupold collimator. The majority of the collimators in eBay are from China and I have hard time trusting them due to previously importing machine tools from China. They are not above packaging a pen light flash light with the bulb painted red and call it a collimator. So I'm seeking your professional advice on range, effectiveness and quality.

I won't waste your time with a price range this time.

Thanks,
Ron Becker

Hello,

I have been doing research on collimators and I ran across something very profound. My AK47 rifle has a muzzle brake and there is no guarantee that it is square with the rifle barrel bore. How about the chamber bore sighter? Do they have enough range to be effective?

Thanks,
Ron Becker
