    Default Soviet PEM telescopic sight, 1938.

    Hi Guys, while the condition is not great, these are hard to find.

    The seller thought it was German.

    Ignore the British made mounts. Someone over here in the UK once used it for shooting. The optics are nice and clear.

    Originally used on the M91/30 Mosin rifle. Fitted to the receiver one of two ways: It could be side mounted or top mounted.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nice to see an original Soviet scope Adrian. You would have thought the seller might have had a clue from the hammer and sickle marking!

    Steve you are right!

    I showed it to someone and he only saw the markings to the mounts too until I pointed out the markings on the scope proper.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This scope now resides in my collection. I bid for it while away on holiday in Egypt and was surprised to find I won it for 120.

    I will pick it up from work on Tuesday and then remove the Brit mounts and give it a gentle clean.

    The story from the vendor is his father took it as a trophy from a German sniper he had killed. Hence he thought it was German. The Son used it postwar on his rifle here in the UK.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ray.

    I have now lightly cleaned the scope and removed the Brit mounts. Much better now.

    Been reading up on the "Progress" factory where this one was made. It was set up with help from Carl Zeiss in 1936.

    Cheers, Ade.
