    Default PSL - Advice For Low Centered Mount + Scope

    Hi Folks,

    I want a low/centered scope on my PSL. I purchased one of these but it is warped and crooked.



    Pretty sure it's identical to Kalinka'a BP-02

    http://kalinkaoptics.com/mounts/orig...aver-rail.html



    Anyway, I was going to see if I could exchange it or get another but the "Smith" I used for work on this PSL says these mounts are crap and wouldn't use it. Anybody have a best recommendation of a low/centered mount wi a rail so I can mount a detachable scope.

    Was thinking if using this http://kalinkaoptics.com/rifle-scope...r-version.html This is the price range I'm targeting (no pun intended)

    Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    Yeah that should be the same as the BP-02

    What's warped on it? Or could it have been machined wrong? These are usually quality mounts. Can you exchange it from the place you bought it from?
    Your "smith" doesn't know what he's talking about, he must be comparing these to the UTG ones which are low quality. I don't know of any other mounts for the SVD/PSL style rail, most are made for the AK rail.

    The scope your looking at is nice for the price, you don't have too many choices in that price range.

    Nah. This guy is known for quality work. I had a picture of it mounted on the rifle but I can't find it anymore. I'll post another when I get it back. I thought the rail or something about the receiver was crooked as the Front and rear sight blocks were way crooked to start with. In the meantime I do have a pic I took to show the locking nut and while I didn't notice this before it appears you can see a bit of twist in it from here.



    I can't imagine one wouldn't be able to twist it straight again in a vise wi some muscle. Or this could further trash it as well.

    I wonder if that was a blem that made it out of the factory? Even the slot for the locking lug looks like it wasn't machined properly.
    I'd try another one, this one should be ok for a red dot or low end scope yet

    No, It's way too crooked to be a keeper. Some people on other boards also reported their BP-02's to be crooked.

    I received suggestions such as these . . .

    AK-303 base + AKR upper mount



    Or the Arsenal SM-13

    The AK-303 base & Arsenal are nice, but I don't know how well they will handle the recoil of the 54r since they are skeletonized so much, they are mainly designed for the AK series rifles.


    I can't believe no one else had anything to add?

    Dunno. A guy on another forum says the AK303 works great wi his .308 VEPR. Never has to reset zero even after cleaning.

    That's good to hear, I've only seen a couple reviews so far (all good) but they used it on 762x39 & 545x39 rifles.

    Does that Ak-303 even fit on an SVD style scope mount? I thought it was AK specific. I had a BP-02 that was similar to that on my PSl and I disassembled the mount and shimmed it to bring it in line with the barrel. Before at max travel I was a foot off the paper at 100 yards!! IIRC, it was off to the left so I had to shim between the two pieces of the mount at the back end to push the front to the right.

    If it doesn't there's this one, but I think it sits high though
