It only took me about 50 days to get my scope in from Belarus(Russia) Eastwave sent it in a reasonable time but it was picked up by customs for some reason along with my Navis-34 which is a cool little red dot which now sits on my Arsenal.

Russian / Izmash made adjustable stock/handguards and a 4-12x42 POSP illuminated zoom scope, woohoo!

Nice looking PSL. I would, however, seriously consider mounting the bipod in the receiver. Drill & tap a hole for a sling stud in the center point between the magazine well & the lower handguard. A Harris-type bipod's mounting "footprint" won't fit in that small space, you'll need to go with a Parker-Hale-type (Versa-Pod). You'll be happy you did, believe me.

Here are two 4-shot groups done rapid-fire each from a cold bore (My theory about both 4th shot "flyers" is that that skinny barrel heats up real fast, as it was almost too hot to touch after each 4-shot string):

Does that scope adjust the reticle when you zoom in and out? Someone told me recently that those scopes (Russian) mechanically change your zero when you manipulate the zoom. Sounds fishy to me, but I had to ask.

Very easily, well it's easier on the wood because you buy this bi pod adapter from midway usa, i think its made by shooters ridge? just search bipod adaptor and its a flat metal piece with the sling stud which you stick thru the wooden hole which is there already, in this Izmash stock I had to drill a hole and it's extremely sturdy. I like the other method shown in those high quality pics and that looks amazingly sturdy but my setup is also very stable and it can be reached to tighten easily anytime so after a few hundred rounds we will see but I did not want to over tighten since it is plastic, even though it's heavy duty.

Good question but I think I got the one that does not, you may be talking about a very popular extremely heavy duty looking one which is usually a 3-9x42 with one of those crazy reticles which looks like they are having a party on the glass, lol I mean there are marks all around like a clock and about 5 others so that crap is way too confusing to me. The one I have has a built in range finder/drop compensator designed for the 7.62x54 round so it's perfect. I think also this model will hold zero when you "zoom" in. Eastwave also has other options, this specific one cost $320 with $40 shipping so $360 out the door, they have 3-9 versions of the same thing for maybe $80-100 less as well but there 3-9x42 that looks like a tank on top of your rifle that one costs a bit mroe and I believe is the one you are speaking about which looses it's zero (not what I wanted) so I have no clue why its more expensive, maybe just heavier duty thats all i can think of.

That's exactly what I would think, too. But no. It was TRULY 100.

Nice I dig it and it looks evil, I just got a 8xposp scope for my PSL, but I'm keeping with the wood theme like supersonics.

Holy crap thats a nice looking PSL! I especially like the check piece. After I pick up my next handgun...I am thinking of saving up for a PSL. I was eyeballin' an SVT40 but I like the PSL better I think? Thanks for the tip on the bipod too. I hate clamping junk to my barrel too. Man it looks long enough to be able to do part time as a crane? lol.

Customs really likes to hold up scopes coming from Belarus. They'll try and delay it with "Well, you have to fill out ATF import permits because these are military articles", but if they say that, you just say "Sir, check the shipping manifest and you'll find that these are sold with 'sporting' in the item description. They're just target scopes for civilian rifles."

Or at least, that's how it worked when I did a $2k or so order from POSP for bulk pricing... ;)
