Are any of you familiar with this Russian NV rifle scope? I picked it up several years ago when living in Germany. It's fully functional. It runs on five stacked 1.2V batteries (total 6V) shown in pictures.

I'm trying to find out what generation this scope is and where I could get parts should I ever need them. I would also like to know it's worth today. Though it's a stand-alone NV scope and works quite well in semi-moon light conditions, it has an IR light source that can be used to illuminate a target as far away as 400 meters.

The first image is a side view. The second image was shot looking straight down on top the scope. The third image demonstrates two of the five 1.2V Ni-Cad batteries used to power the unit. The unit comes with a battery charger that can be used with either 12 volts or 27 volts.

How does it seem to mount to the rifle? I didn't see the typical russian
side mount setup.

Hi Ron,

When the "wall fell", many of the East and West Germans snatched these up and modified them for their existing hunting rifles. I picked this up from an acquaintance living near Alitzheim. He had several and had modified some for use on his rifles. I removed his mounting device (which was ugly). Since taking the pictures, I have fabricated a mounting bracket for the scope to accommodate my bolt action rifles.

Perhaps this might not be the form to get your answers. Try this website:

They have topics such as sniper rifles and DDR equipment and maybe you just might get more information.
