More of an optic post than a firearm post. This is an interesting red dot from Russia. You’ll notice how the eye piece rotates. It gives it the ability to be used around corners or from behind barricades. If you notice the 4th and 5th photo, the soldiers are looking through the secondary lens in the rotated position illustrated in the 1st photo. In a sense this is kind of a Russian corner-shot.
There is only one known copy of this scope in the U.S and so far these don’t seem to be common in Russia either. I think it’s specifically calibrated for the 5.45x39mm cartridge.
