My Kobra EKP-8-02 died and I need help deciding on another collimator sight. My criteria is that the sight be: Around $200, authentic Com block, and sit low and over the bore.

Here's my observations on the current crop of Com block sights:

1) Another Kobra. The current price is 3x what I paid back in 2008. Too pricey.
2) Rakurs, PK-AS, etc. Sit too high for my taste. Also, too pricey.
3) PK-01. Kind of pricey at about $300 (2x what I paid in 2008). The PK01-VS and PK01-V versions sit low and over the bore and I especially like the fact that these two versions co-witness at 100 yards!
4) PK-A. In my price range. Seems like it sits low enough. Doesn't sit over the bore.
5) PK-23. In my price range. Seems like it sits low enough and over the bore. But I don't know about the blinking retical.

So I'm leaning toward either the PK-23, PK-A, or the PK01-V . . . am I missing anything? Any preferences between the three?


Here's my initial post from my recent thread on the subject: http://forum.saiga-1...-a-replacement/

I went with the PK01-V based on what TX-Zen posted here as well as on his web site. Primarily because of the ability to co-witness at 100 yards. Kalinka was having a 15% off sale, which brought the PK-01-V down to around $250! (Plus Kalinka's shipping was really reasonable a $12 via USPS.)

How has it hold up for you? If I'm going to spend around three I want something to last to so I might have to go with a shotgun specific red dot or holographic I have an Eotech XPS-2 but I'm not willing to destroy that to find out thanks
