    Rare Optics

    I'm still fairly new the whole optic arena. Mostly familiar with Russian PSO and POSP scope and standard US hunter models from Bushnell, BSA, Barska etc.

    Here's a couple of rare optics that caught my eye (no pun intended). I don't own them, they're costly as is.

    A Hensoldt Z-24 with a BLITS mount for flat-top and picatinny rails. Am I the only one who thinks it looks like it belongs on the Pulse Rifle from Aliens? Other than the rare mount, it's a standard Z-24 found on the HK G3.










    The Russian 1P59 "Giperon" Scope. Supposedly the new current issue scope on the Dragunov's and their other long range rifles.

    Interesting story on it though. I had asked Kalinka Optics on the possibility of obtaining one. Initially they said they will contact someone and find out. Few days later they emailed saying they could obtain one but for a total price of $6,000 USD. Most of the cost came for finders fee from the contact in Russia.

    This scope is forbidden for export because it's current military issue. I have seen one member on the AK forum with one, although he hasn't mentioned exactly how he got it.

    I bought a Israeli mauser sniper rifle, that didn't have to optics, I finally found one in Israel. I hated sending that much money over seas, well for me it was allot, I'm a cheap bastard ($700), I got the scope OK.

    Nice, those are Nimrod scopes if I remember correctly. I was talking to the guy at Miltech who does refurb/restore jobs. He had done a few Israeli Mausers and the scope was always hard to find and costly.

    Is that meant for the MP5? Looks like a lot of polymer; would seem odd looking on a G3.

    Nice. I loved the OEGs, but they did give a headache after a while.
