Rostec Develops New Collimator Sight for Snipers

The new collimator sight PKM 75 uses a dot with accuracy measured in fractions of a degree, can operate for over 50,000 hours without the need to replace batteries, and is compatible with night vision scopes By DA Reporter / 24 Jun 2021

TSNIITOCHMASH of Rostec State Corporation has developed a new collimator sight PKM 75 with unique targeting accuracy and energy consumption capabilities. The device will increase firing accuracy at moving targets and is compatible with night vision scopes.

Instead of traditional reticles, modern collimator sights use a dot with accuracy measured in fractions of a degree (arc minutes). Aiming and shooting accuracy depend on the size of the dot. Unlike existing analogues with two arc-minute reticles, the new sight has the smallest ‘dot’ of just one arc-minute. This will significantly increase both shooting accuracy and sighting range. 

The new device also enables longer continuous operation without the need to replace batteries, exceeding 50,000 hours. This is the first domestic sighting system that can use high-capacity lithium batteries.

“The new sight is designed for small arms equipped with a special mount, the Picatinny rail. This covers models such as all Kalashnikov assault rifles, special small arms such as Vintorez, AS Val and other assault rifles. The product will significantly improve the firing accuracy, especially at long distances,” announced the Rostec Armaments cluster. 

“The design surpasses the level of foreign collimator sights, including those used by NATO. It has already passed preliminary testing and will be demonstrated to specialists of law enforcement agencies at the International Military-Technical Forum ARMY-2021.”

The sight is compatible with night vision devices of all generations and can be operated in extreme weather conditions at temperatures ranging from -50°C to +60 °C.
