Russians seem to have a crush for polysemes and ‘the rabbit’ is no exception. Because that’s what rusak / русак means in English. And indeed, it is a very swift sight.
Don’t be mislead by the photo, it comes with a 11mm mount only. I milled it off and replaced it with a standard ak side-mount.
These sights were made for the civilian and export market only, that is the reason for the 11mm mount also.
The screw on the right photo is for adjusting the battery compartment for different batteries, since different AA batteries vary slightly in their length. You can also see the attached lens cover.
To zero it in, you have to loosen the screw and manually adjust the front lens with you fingers. This is the biggest flaw by far on this sight. It really takes some time and flair to get the lens into the right position.
Basically this scope is a poor mens cobra. It is cheap and was never meant for shooting beyond 100 meters. However it is rugged and performs well for the ranges it was designed for. I don’t think there is any other sight in that price range which is as capable as this.
