This is my first post so bear with me. I just came into a Romanian Dragunov It shoots great with the open sights. But when I shoot with the scope (issue scope for that modle) the rounds are way way like Off the target high at 50 yds. To hit the target center mass i have to aim at the Base of the frame. about 2 feet. The rifle did not come witha cheek peice and I was wondering if that could afect the shot placement.. if so where could i find one.
Thanks

Sounds like the scope is just dialed for a zero at a range substantially longer then you're shooting at. Just going off of the data that Mel has on the main page, sounds like you're looking at something in the neighborhood of at least a 5-600 yard zero. If you can dial the scope way up, then do it. If you can't dial the scope that much, then maybe you need to see what kind of rail is on it. Barring all of that, you may want to remove everything and try bore-sighting the rifle. I know Mel has discussed it in the forums previously. Just my $0.02

I belive that it is the pso1 it has 4 vertical cheverons and a vscale showing 10 on each side of the center line as for the mount it is the one that attaches to the side of the rifle the top adjustment knob only shows 0-10 and when turned to 10 it causes the retical to lower in the scope
again any help would be welcomed once i get this one running good I have an m1a to work with i am waiting ona springfield scope and mount that
i am gettin from a coworker.
Thanks

The scale and the chevrons are your bdc and rangefinder. you use the top chevron to aim with if the target is under 250 meters.
2.4.4. To zero the rifle with the optical sight attach it to the rifle and put the cheek plate on the butt. Rotate the knobs to set the sight angle knob at division 3 and deflection correction knob at 0. Perform the test-firing with the aid of the optical sight, the conditions being the same as for test-firing of the rifle with the aid of the open sight, but the check point in this case is marked at a height of 14 cm from the point of aim.
If, as a result of the test-firing, all four hits are arranged in a circle, 8 cm in diameter, but the mean point of impact deviates from the check point by more than 3 cm, determine the deviation of the MPI and introduce the appropriate corrections into the settings of the nuts on knobs of the sight angles and deflection corrections.
Displacement of the nuts by one division relative to the scales on the bands of the knobs in firing at 100-m range will change the position of MPI by 5 cm. To introduce corrections release screws on the knob ends by 1 1 1/2 turns and while rotating the sight angle nut and the deflection correction nut, manually, displace them by a necessary amount and tighten the screws.
After the corrections have been introduced in the knob setting, repeat the test-firing. If, as a result of the repeated test-firing, all the four hits are arranged in a circle, dia. 8 cm, the MPI has matched with the check point or deviated from it to either side by no more than 3 cm, the rifle is considered zeroed.
its a lil long but it should have everything ull need (assuming were talking about the same scope)

I don't think the SVD was ever issued with a cheekpiece, although some of the Russian ones had adjustable stock pieces, is that what you are looking for? No idea as to where to find one of those. In any event, all the cheekpiece does is align your eye better with the scope by placing it higher than its position on a regular stock, for more comfortable shooting. It will do nothing to change the zero or point of impact of the rifle, but way help you as a person shoot better and eliminate paralax.
