New Russian Valdai PK 130 Optical Sight with Cornersight

The  Valdai PK 130 reflex sight, designed for assault rifles and machine guns, has been announced by the Russian company JUPITER. It is based on their sight which was adopted by the Russian Army with the designation 1 P 90.


The optic is 60mm in  width with a 1 MOA reticle in the center. The system is adjustable in intensity (20 levels) for outdoor lighting and is compatible with the night vision system with NV intensity levels.

The Valdai PK 130 quickly mounts on Picatinny rail. The sight is adjustable in elevation and azimuth, and is waterproof up to 1 meter. The operating temperature ranges from -40 ° C to + 50 ° C. The Valdai PK 130 weighs 298 grams and its size is 133x55x80 mm. It is powered by a CR123 battery.

JUPITER has also created some optical attachments that can be coupled with the Valdai PK 130, including a “cornersight” that allows the gun to be used around corners.

    This looks like a great concept, a quick way of turning your rifle into a cornershot,. How well it works in the field, we’ll just have to wait and see.

      That’s the first thing I thought also. You always see soldiers and insurgence fire blindly around corners. This would be especially useful.

    Lol corner shot. No one takes those seriously, Russia also isn’t the first to have made things like it. Aimpoint has one, as well as other companies…all suck.

      The Russians do have a bit of a history of adopting some rather unorthodox tactics/equipment. Who knows, maybe they can make this work too.

    • Zugunder

      Just because others failed doesn’t mean you can’t try. Though, I don’t see this corner peeking feature to be very usable.

      Russia actually bought a few CornerShots for the Spetsnaz but hilarious thing is that they forgot to buy Glocks for them, no russian pistol fits. You can read that at “KardeN” livejournal.

      • Tritro29

        Karden would be a little wrong, Russians have been buying Glocks for Over 15 years now.

        • Green Hell

          Yeah, and his unit never got them. There are lots of funny stuff like that, for example his unit also got a few expensive Sako sniper rifles and no ammo and scopes for them.

      Pretty sure a periscope shooting system has been available since WWII, the Israelis just figured out how to make money off it.

    I need this for when I deploy to Chiraq next week.

    Don’t know how it compares to other “corner shot” style scopes, but others like the accutact never seemed to have caught on. The big difference seems to be the fact that you can look both straight through and also from the side in the accutact, and this one seems like you can only look down the tube. Military Arms Channel also did a youtube review on it.
