anything wouldpretty much would work.3x9-40 and 4x12-50 are pretty common scope sizes that would be easy to find, and do the job. 4x12 will be better if your lookin at some pretty long ranges. good luck

Never heard of the Russian rifle you have but I would suggest something along the lines of a 2-7x32 or a 3-9x40 for a minimum.

Heard of them and seen them a bunch at gun shows. Made by the same bunch that makes the real AK's.

I'd suggest a 3-9x40 power scope. Nikon or Leupold.

as IL-cornfed said, i would go with a minimum of a 3-9x40. if you can afford $200 or more go with a leupold. you can geta VX-I leupold for $200 in a 3-9x40 or a 4-12 for around $290
