    PSO-1 Help Needed

    Thanks for your input. Ill try that idea, its a good one. Im sure i have a spring laying around my tool bench. Yes, im told its a 3v system so the two 1.5v D357/303 button cells should equal out. I love this scope, it is by far the best one i have ever gotten my hands on. Well besides the battery issue.

    PSO-1 Help Needed

    Does anyone know anything about the PSO-1M2 model scope? It came in on an 1994 Tigr. Am i using the correct batteries 1.5v D357/303? Also known as LR44 and many other names. From what i have read on the internet that is the right kind of battery, it said to use two 1.5v D357 stacked to make 3v. An old friend of mine said it may take a 3v photo battery but i have no idea. When i close the battery compartment there is a bit of space so there is no connection. I already checked and cleaned all contacts, and stretched the cap spring out to make sure it was extended fully. I just placed a new 3v red led bulb in it. If i put a ball of aluminum foil in the battery compartment to make the contact, it works but it is geto. Most of all i worry that it may damage the switch or circuit board. Any thoughts, cleaning tips, how to fix anything, storage, any restoring tips? Im open to ideas so long as they do not cause harm or hurt my scope in any way. I am new to Russian optics and scopes. Here are some pics that might help. I have used most of my photo bucket space so the pics are not very large. I can email bigger pics if you think you can help me. Thanks
  4. I received my package yesterday June 15th at 9:30am. I ordered more then planed because there is no where else to find this stuff. Here is what i ordered. 2 RED 3V bulb for PSO/POSP Scopes 1 POSP Safe Bag for POSP/PSO 4x24 & 6x24 Rifle Scopes- Mounted scope cover/case 2 POSP Illumination Switch Rubber Cover I was impressed with the speed they showed up. After the new bulbs got here i placed one in the scope. It dint work... So i emailed Scott he said to review the PDF doc he gave me. Checked and cleaned all my connections with fine steel wool. I found the battery cap spring loaded pin was the cause. The spring loaded pin that holds the batteries in place was worn and dint make a full contact. If anyone wants a copy of this PDF reticle test just message me and ill email it. Here is a pic of my PSO-1 reticle, Im so happy i finally got it to work. Over all review of kalinkaoptics.com is +1
  5. Ok i have not found a replacement bulb from anywhere else for my PSO-1M2. So ima roll the dice, its only 11.97 + shipping. I was going to order more, but i am very glad i read up here 1st. I sent them an email stating i had just got an Tigr with an old PSO-1M2 scope on it. But the electrical system did not work after i had put 2 new batteries in it. He replied with haste and kindness, but when i asked for more info on the scope rather then the bulb he said. "Please try the new bulb and if it does not work, we will look at the problem closer then. Lets hope the bulb fixes your problem...Scott". Right after he sent another email wish a PDF file on how to check the circuits and the bulb. My bulb failed the light test so i bet that is all that is wrong. So far, so good. Lets hope my order goes the same. Not +1 or -1 yet. Vote still pending, i will update soon as i get to test the new bulb. On a side note does anyone know anything about this model scope? Am i using the correct batteries D357/303? Also known as LR44 and many other names. Cleaning tips, how to fix anything, storage, anything. I am new to Russian optics and sights. Here are some pics to help. Thanks

    Mosin Nagant

    Yes these guns kick hard, and take your abuse hard. I wanted to restore a firearm cheap. So i went out to my local gun shop and picked up a 91/30 that needed everything but a new stock for 100$ after the paperwork. Barrel was so dark i guessed it was not pitted but had no way of knowing with out taken her home. Gun Smith on sight said it was not safe to shoot in its current shape. other tools needed: One kit by Blue Wonder. Steel wool. SOS pad. A power drill. An old worn out .30 bronze brush. Bottle of Hoppes #9. Gun cleaning stuff everyone should have. I let the barrel soak in the #9 for 20 min wile plugged. Then i ran a new .30 brush down the barrel 10 times, patched dry, patched wet, repeated 10 times. Then i opened my blue wonder kit. After reading the bottle of the cleaner i used it with some steel wool as directed to clean the outside up. The name says it all i was in shock and aw at how much nicer it looked, all but new. The next step was to use the same cleaner in the barrel. Because i read that it will remove dirt and impurities that everything else leaves behind. Once again i was shocked by how much gunk my long trusted #9 left behind. On a separate project i used other cleaners from Hoppes, Bench rest copper cutter, H20 based carbon cutter, and all still left gunk that the Blue wonder gun cleaner sucked right out. I coated the inside of the barrel with the cleaner and made 10 passes with a bronze brush to spread it out and get in all the pores. Let it sit wile i took the bolt apart and hit it with the #9 and a bronze brush. (I seen some people use WD40. If you use WD40 it may sweat out over use and cause over pressure. Id advise to only use in in gas chambers that have lots of extra space, the kalashnikov platform would be a great example. Not saying you will die or horrible things will happen, just saying it can have the same affect as oil when under pressure.) Ran a dry patch down the barrel to clean it out, wet, dry. I noticed the bore dint have a brand new chrome shine but looks great! No pitting, i was happy. Next step was to redo the hacked blue job that someone else did. The same blue wonder cleaner and an SOS pad ripped off the extra dark patchy blue job. Then i cleaned the bare metal surfaces with blue wonder and steel wool, only this time to prep it i had to dry the cleaner off with a HOT hair dryer or a torch, then wipe clean with a rag. Apply blue as directed, careful to not make it to dark or give it to many coats. As far as the stock all i did was the sun trick read up on here(thanks guys) and then a rubbed the whole thing down with old English on a rag inside and out. Till it looked almost new. The Blue wonder cleaner worked on all the metal surfaces that were blued. The power drill and burnt out .30 brush with a small rag around it was what i used to clean all the cosmoline out of the chamber. May have been over powered but this whole job was done in about 6 hours. To finish the job up i took it to the gun shop had it checked out, after it passed i took her to the range. At 100 meters i had no prob hitting 4 of 4 shots on target. At 200 meters i was 3 of 4. Not bad for an old cheap gun. All it needed was some TLC. I would recommend a Mosin Nagant to anyone who wants to own a gun but due to hard times is broke or anyone who wants a bit of a project. I had a lot of fun restoring my Mosin back to shooting shape. If using corrosive ammo use #9 as a rinse out, the kerosene in it will stop the salts from pitting your barrel. The other items mentioned on this topic work as well. Yes, even water will do a pretty good job.
  7. I look at these pics daily, what a beauty. Real work of art. I want to shoot her, then clean her so bad!
  8. Would it be legal to put on a non-converted Saiga 7.62x39 strait off the boat with no work done? I think so but i do not want it if i cant give it to my friend who has just that. Poor bastard only has one 10rd. He never goes shooting, and we all know 10rds wont stop waves of zombies. Also you filed it down just enough so it will fit? I have seen many of over filed mags that the catch broke off. Thanks
  9. Grips Showed up today. Great shape not one storage scratch or ding i can find. I will install it soon as my woman wakes up and i can get to my gun safe lol. Cheers Tw4 P:S ima give you a good review if you could do the same for me that would be great. Thanks.

    duracoating for my freinds is illegal???

    As long as your not clamming all the tools and paint on your taxes as a job related right off and there are no fellans your doing work for i would not worry about it.... Of course after 9/11 everyone wants to point fingers at everyone... Guns, if you own a gun you must be a bad gun right?..... So Sad, I hope we do not go the way of Europe. A bit of advice if you do not have insurance that would cover some kind of mishap then you should have everyone sign a waver/contract stating that you were not paid for your services and they borrowed your tools to do the work, you merely over saw the use of your tools, etc. Also state that you can not be held responsible for anything that may happen due to miss use, etc... The laws may vary state to state as well. That is the best advice i have with out calling my lawyer. Good Luck, Either way i would not be shouting to the hills about your kick ass hobby. As sad as it is people just do not get the truth about guns anymore. Maybe they forgot our freedom they gave us, or maybe they just need to be swarmed by zombies/aliens.

    Chaos Steel 8rd box mag!

    This might be the tremendous answer to the S12 old question. What mag will stand up to the test of abuse, time and combat conditions. Wile still being compact and realistic to carry 6 of them on body. All i hope is the zombie apocalypse comes after the field testing of my 1st batch i order. No rush though, im very excited about this project but it wont be as easy as a plastic mold, with all the different depth magwells. Id plan to sell alot of these if they work as well as planed. Good Luck Cam, and PS: put me down for 6 rock n locks.

    Double Stack 12ga Magazine for Saiga-12

    As a happy 1st run drum buyer, looking for a small hi cap choice. I was just about to break down and have some 8rd's shipped in from New Zealand. But if you think production time will be shorter then Obama's 1st term and gun safety zone, so he gets relected. Then i think i will wait to see your home made American mags. If its as i guess then yours will out class the rest and ill be helping out home economy. Thanks for making our dreams part of the American bail out plan. we back you 100%. I want to see you do pushup's off the Saiga with the new mag in the gun as a pivit point off the ground.
