I cant wait to shoot this thing and Its going to be raining this Saturday..since I am using corrosive ammo. that may be a good thing. or I can go to Cresap on Sunday instead. I have other stuff to try out. A FN PS90, A mossy 590 pump and another suppressed AR that I built from parts with a gas piston retrofit for the upper.

Rain, rain go away, come again another, my little friends want to play.

My only concern with this rifle is that lefties need to look at the stock. Right-handed shooters get a nice cheek weld with that curved stock, lefties get a wooden blade to the jaw.

You are absolutely right. This rifle if lefty unfriendly. The PSO / TIP2 scope also sits offset a bit to the left. This is really awkward to handle if you are a lefty.

The rifle is fine for lefties and in fact easier based on scope placement

having trouble getting this PSL scope sighted in. i get it close at 25 yards and then at 100 it's impacting WAY to the left. what's going on? could it have something to do with the scope being offset (not top dead center above the barrel, but about 3/4" left)?

that sounds like thats definetly what it is,i wrap paper around a broomstick and put it in my rings and adjust them to be parallel with my barrel,it can deviate vertically a little bit if its set up for a moa slope i guess butnever horizontal, i try to get mine like perfectly even with the barrel then i take the top of the rings off and i put the scope in and use a bullet level on the top knob on the top and then something flat on the gun while its in a vice or on a bipod. I would consider myself an amateur but this is what I do and it works, i think i read it from one of E shells posts and just tried it and its great

make sure you have it mounted in the correct place on the slide. I thought mine was but it was moving slightly after a few shots. Tighten it down securely to make sure it isn't a wandering issue first.

I havent shot my PSL yet, still trying to figure out the scope. to mount the TIP2 , slide the scope from the rear to the front until it stops. Then tighten the lever. is that the correct way to mount it?

Also, The two screws on the turret once loosened should allow me to make elevation and windage adjustments just like a regular scope. I have noticed that the whole reticle moves up/down- left/ right with these adjustment instead of staying in the middle.

I have also laser boresighted the irons and the scope. scope was boresighted at 50 yards.

Once i have this thing zeroed at 100 yards, the turrets should be set at zero, right?
Upon using the rangefinder and figuring out range, I should adjust the elevation turret to correspond to range and there should be no holdover.

I am new to russian optics, any advice would be appreciated.

thanks guys

SCAR
