The rifle optical scope, model of 1931, the scope of the times of World War II, designed for installation on sniper rifles Mosin, Simonov (AVS) and Tokarev (SVT).

The production of PE scopes was first established at Krasnogorsk Plant No. 19 (Krasnogorsk, Moscow Region), then transferred to the Leningrad Plant "Progress" Plant No. 357 of the NKV USSR, and then it was also deployed at the Kharkov Labor Communal Plant of the NKVD USSR. All scopes were delivered to Tula plant No. 173, where the country's only production of sniper rifles was based on the Mosin and SVT-38 systems (40).
Brackets, dust caps and tarpaulins for PE scopes were also manufactured there. In the city of Tula was the final assembly of sniper rifles. In total, in 193140, 46 000 of PE scopes were produced in Krasnogorsk and Leningrad, and about 120 000 were produced in Leningrad and Kharkov in 194243.
Thus, the rarest PE scopes are considered pre-war, due to their small number of production in these years, that is, made before 1940. In addition, the pre-war PE scopes are considered to be of higher quality than those made in wartime, as the Smirnsky bracket, since during the war the rings of the bracket were welded to the base, and in the pre-war period were all milled on the bracket.
