    OKP-7 Red Dot/ collimator sight

    Anyone ever seen or heard of these?
    Anyone know where you can get one?

    It is a funky Russian made sight with AK side mount.

    No and No to your questions. However Atlantic firearms has several different AK red dots with mounts. I am not sure if you would be interested but I will put a link below.

    If you contact the manufacturer directly they will export one to you but be prepared to pay a hefty price. Also be prepared for the darn thing to break - we had the "upgraded" ones overseas for a while and they did not last.

    Okay I was curious so I googled it and read a bit about it. I found a review and It got a pretty high marks. It sounds like a solid choice for a red dot with several different reticle colors and configurations available. according to the review it has a very low profile with a true absolute co-witness and it is easy to zero. It definitely has a high cool factor and would give your AK that Russian special forces look. They don't really seem to have any factory support in the US though so in that respect you might be able to find some better options in the same price range. I found a couple of sources for them as well. I will put the links to the review and the optics below. If you get one please review it for us. I would be really interested to hear what you think about it.

    Edit: Well Arkane was posting at the same time I was making my post and it sounds like he has real world experience with these. The reviewer did not have much trigger or testing time on the optic when he wrote his review. It was more his initial shooting impressions rather that real world testing.

    The biggest problem we saw with them was the glass was just too fragile and the switches would go intermittent fairly fast. Given how it sits offset to the left most right handers had a problem with it hanging up on their gear. After a few months they had all been replaced with PK-01's which is a heckuva little sight. If I had to spend my money on a sidemount and wanted something not made in the USA I'd get one of those.

    Russia has a program similar to our ITAR so availability on the 7 or 77 is going to be a big issue.
