Innovative civilian sights produced by the Shvabe holding of Rostec State Corporation will go on sale in the EU this fall. These new universal optical devices surpass all existing analogs in terms of tactical and technical characteristics at a lower price. For the first time, the devices were presented at the Army-2020 forum.
The new line of interchangeable magnification scopes is represented by two models for working at short and medium distances – PO104 and PO156. The devices are a modified version of the PSU sight. Thanks to the improved reticle that adapts to different user tasks, the devices are suitable for both hunters and sportsmen. The optics are designed and manufactured at the Novosibirsk Instrument Making Plant of the Shvabe holding.
The scopes can be purchased with one of three types of reticle: BDC Ballistic, Fast Cross and Hunting Cross. The devices are identical in technical characteristics, the difference lies in the magnification of the target. The PO104 model has two fixed positions – 1 and 4 times, and the PO156 – 1.5 and 6 times. A special lever in the lower part of the case provides an instant change of magnification without taking the shooter's hand off the weapon.
Other benefits include a wide viewing angle and six-level backlighting that responds quickly at any brightness level. The body of the new scopes is made of durable aluminum alloy and is waterproof and shockproof.
