Sorry for my bad english, my friends, in this article i will try to aware you from buying fake copies of PU scope for MOSIN/SVT rifle.

At least, when you buy a copy - you have to know, that it is not original historical item, made in USSR.

First of all, i want to describe difference between copy and original PU scope, also i want to help you identify, do you have original or fake PU scope, and also i want to help you to buy original historical PU scope to your MOSIN/SVT rifle (for example, from us).

Most of PU scopes selling at ebay are copies, made in modern times, i will try to describe you most of them.
