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.

He is totaly wright..Kalinka staff dont know anything about optics...also they offen lies in the specifications of the devices.

Anyway I love east block guns, and I buy several optics from russia...

Some brands are pure junk:

Chinese VPOI

Russian PPO, VOMZ, KOMZ

 

But some thinks are good quality for its price and have this unique "russian design":

I recomend zenith, belomo, sibir yukon, dedal, dipol, npz nobosibirsk,axion cobra sight, lemt lasers...(also kronos offer some reasonable quality products

i bought a kobra for one of my eastern block guns and a 4x just for kicks from kalinka optics...the red dot is ok, big,blocky, and heavy, but seems to hold up fairly well, the 4x to me is'nt that bad, it's clear,bight, and holds zero well...but your talking to a guy who only owns one LP. most of my scopes are tasco,BSA, and an old redfield  .........

 

the ppl at kalinka are less then helpfull at best ....nuff said, but i will not do buisness w/ them again

 

ok, so i broke down the other month  and bought a SS 10x to mount on a bolt .308 ...... i now understand why you guys say, "buy once, buy quality" .....i was always under the impression that a scope only helps you see better, and does'nt help you shoot any better .... so i never saw the reason for that high $$ glass, but as it seems to be true, if you can see your target better, you have a better chance of hitting it.

 

 the prob now is, what the hell do i do with those cheap scopes ?? maybe i should donate them to the mythbusters for there next "scope shot" test .......lol...lol...
