Main PK-AS features
This sight is improved hunting version of the PKS-01 sight, which one has been developed specifically for the combat operations of the Russian Special Forces. It not only fills the role of the traditional red dot short range sight. PK-AS also designed for long range shooting. The quality of this scope is equal to NATO military optics. It's fully coated prismatic lens system provides a remarkable, high contrast, wide angle field of view allowing for fast acquisition of moving and spaced targets. Its most unique feature is its black dot - red dot aiming mark. Under normal daylight conditions, a precise 3 MOA black dot enclosed in a simple elliptical range-finding oval (170 MOA) is always visible without the use of the battery. When needed, a flip of the switch activates a 3 MOA red dot.
This flexibility allows the PK-AS round the clock effectiveness in all environments. This dual functioning is available in no other Red Dot sight. Another great feature is the exceeding ease of making alignment adjustments using its indexed ballistic cam. This thumbwheel style range turret is calibrated in equal 2 MOA increments which makes it easy to use the sight with any caliber rifle. The non-magnification design allows for both-eyes-open shooting eliminating eyestrain. You have an unlimited field of view and maximum ability to register incoming targets. The design of the sight hasn't copies in the world. The sight is filled with nitrogen in order to prevent internal misting of the lens.

A long time favorite of mine, the PK-AS is an interesting and well designed collimator sight that has probably the best field of view of any red dot or collimator type optic that I've seen.
Of all the collimators I have personally used it seems to me that PK-AS has the highest light gathering and clearest optical quality. Due to it's construction and with such a thin scope body the edges almost completely disappear with both eyes open, leaving you with virtually nothing to obscure your vision.
