Jupiter Optics – Valdai PG-210 Holographic Sight


At a recent military expo held in Kubinka, Russia, weapon optics manufacturer Jupiter Optics unveiled their new Valdai PG-210 Holographic Weapons Sight. The PG-210 is a 1x Holographic sight designed to reduce target acquisition time and improve accuracy from small arms fire in all lighting conditions. It features 4 night and 5 day brightness levels, and is even NVG compatible. The product page implies that multiple reticle types will be offered for the sight.

The PG-210 is powered by a single AA 1.5V battery, and offers a run time of approximately 2000 hours on the “average brightness value”. It is waterproof up to 2 meters for 1 hour, and has a listed operating temperature range of -40 to 50 °C (-40 to 122 °F). It weights in at 297 grams (~10.5 oz.), with dimensions of 133mm x 80mm x 53mm (5.2 in x 3.1 in x 2 in).

The PG-210 is designed primarily for use with Kalashnikov series rifles, although as it features a built-in mount for Picatinny rails, it can be mounted to a variety of weapons.

    But how does it operate at extreme temperatures?

    I love the translations you get from Russian. Try looking up the active ear defence they sell. It says about cats talking. They’re called GSSh-01.

  3. I really enjoy reading about what the Russians are doing with combat optics.

    If you follow the link to Sputnik News it’s said there that this sight ‘have no analogues in the world’. Nobody ever made anything that ugly?

    I live in Moscow and it’s damn full of designers, marketing managers and other hipsters. Why can’t they get one or two to serve their Motherland on this sight factory?

    It’s ugly and it runs on AAs. If the price is right, this is definitely going on my WASR.

    So, who owns this company? Are they on the OFAC sanctions list?
