PK-A Red Dot by BelOMO

Another long time favorite, the PK-A is a sturdy and robust red dot tube optic. Originally appearing to be an adaptation of the original PSO SVD optic, the PK-A has a similar construction and the same style of hammer grey finish.


PK-A comes in three types including a black colored AK mount version, a black Weaver version and the original grey universal mount version. While the original appears to have an SVD mount it is actually a universal type mount and will fit most AK's just fine. The newer black versions use different style turrets for windage and elevation and appear to be POSP turrets, vs the original which are much smaller and not marked with numbers.


PK-A uses CR357 watch batteries, but the battery compartment on the original appears to have been designed to use the same battery as the PSO-1 optic and seems to require an insert for CR357's to fit. PK-A weighs 15.3 oz and sits off to the left somewhat.

CR357 batteries appear to require a rubber insert for them to fit properly.


Reticule view down the tube. While pictures tend to make the scope body larger than when using both eyes, PK-A does have a tubular effect due to it's construction.

This is one of the oldest Russian red dot sights on the market but despite it's age it's a handy little optic that I've gotten excellent performance out of. Unlike many of the newer red dot sights PK-A is actually in service with several countries and special forces units as shown above.
