Are the Russian riflescopes produced these days any good? I have this idea about them that they are strong and durable, but i may be wrong.

Has anyone tried the scopes from Kalinka Optics?  Just curious. I have 16XSS and a Leu M4.  Interested in the range finding capabilities an overall quality of Kalinka scopes.

Stay away from them.  Crappy scopes and incompetent (and unpleasant) people.

 

I had a PPO 5-20x50 that delaminated on me.  Their VPOI scopes are actually cheap chinese crap.

 

Some of the more regular Russian scopes there can be OK, but quality can be spotty.  If you are interested in talking to a dealer more knowledgeable aout russian optics you can try tantal.kalashnikov.guns.ru

This guy's recommendations are usually more spot on.
