POSP 8x42 scopes are close to the middle of the overall POSP line-up both in terms of size and performance. POSP 8x42 models are the most precision oriented offerings in the POSP line-up and the rifles they fit best relfect that. They make for a good fit with precision-oriented AK-variants, like the heavy barrel Vepr rifles among others that take the AK-platform accuracy to its limits.
8x42 scopes offer enough magnification for use at extended ranges without sacrificing much low light performance and field of view. Similarly important is the "D" option. "D" in this case stands for "Diopter" and means that the eyepiece has adjustable focus and can be tweaked to better match the shooter's eye. For shooters who have a hard time bringing the reticle of other POSP scopes into focus, the "D" model is worth looking at.
The POSP 8x42VD Riflescope is equipped with both the AK-type side mount and the standard reticle which is a non-caliber specific variation of the original Dragunov design. Notably, the dual height choke-style rangefinder is still there as is the aiming chevron. Additional hashmarks on the sides of the chevron allow for easy wind compensation with the reticle.
