The Firefield PU Mosin-Nagant scope is a reproduction of the Russian PU Scope, originally noted for its precision and distinguished as one of the most consistently used rifle pieces throughout the Soviet Union during World War II. In capable hands, a Mosin-Nagant sniper rifle fitted with the PU Scope was a formidable weapon, and now Firefield users can achieve that same intensity.

"The head of product development and I are both big Russian history enthusiasts, so when we heard that there was a million or so mosin-nagant rifles on the market without scopes, we wanted to provide a scope that would make the popular rifle super accurate," said James Sellers, president of Firefield. "We wanted to bring the PU scope to millions of mosin-nagant users out there, so they can shoot how Vasily Zaytsev did."

The Firefield recreation of the PU scope merges a well known, classic design with the latest in optic technology and stays true to the original three post design, and multi-coated, specially shaped lenses that greatly improve both clarity and accuracy. Its metal body, thick lenses, tough mechanism and firm mount allowed the PU scope to withstand uncommonly rough conditions and its design is timeless, having been tried and tested throughout the decades.

The Firefield PU Mosin-Nagant/SVT-40 Scope is available in the standard black matte finish and comes with a cast iron scope mount, mounting screws and cast iron mount receiver. It has an MSRP of $199.99.
