View Full Version : Is the scope on a PSL off-set?

I'm entertaining the idea of getting a PSL in 7.62x54R since it's cheaper to shoot than .308... I shoot left-handed and want to know if the scope mount/scope combo that is commonly issued with the rifle puts the scope directly over the receiver or is it offset for right-handed people? Pics on the net either show one side or the other, I can't tell but it looks like it may be.... thanx in advance.

PS who's got one in Sacto and wants to let me test drive one? I can bring some things:

Offset by about 1/4" or so.

If you don't need/want the standard optic go this route (http://www.kalinkaoptics.com/mounts/svd-psl-tigr-romak-3/original-bp-02-svd-psl-tigr-low-profile-centered-side-mount-to-weaver-rail.html). I also shoot lefty, and there's really no other option. These mounts are centered, so you can use them either left or right with any optic.

Hold right and shoot left eye...My bro Pyro hates that way but we at least shoot PSLs.

I'm left handed and I shoot my psl just fine with the factory scope. The offset doesn't bother me!

This is correct I have a scar above my left eyebrow to remind me how much I hate shooting my PSL like that :mad:.

I'm not even sure if there's a traditional side-mount AK scope that isn't off-set save for maybe some of the red dots (cobra).

This one is not. Sits right over the bore center-line.

thats the mount i want to use....

Which POSP's are available without the integrated mount, so i can use that?

Prefer 3-9, 2.5-5, or fixed 4x
