    SKS scope mount - What kind?

    I know someone that is looking for a way to mount a scope on his SKS. I don't know anything about SKS's, AR's, etc. I'm sure if I just went to cheaper than dirt or some other site and searched, I could find something for him, but thought I would ask the experts to point me in the right direction.

    His eyes are bad and he can't use the iron sights, he likes to scope all of his rifles, so point me to a good (not too expensive) scope mount for an SKS.

    Thanks

    Wow, can't believe nobody can help with this. Guess Brownells or Midway gets a visit.

    I bought a scope and mount combo at a local gun show awhile back for my SKS. It replaces the spring cover and still lets you use the iron sights. I had to file it a bit to get a good fit, but it works like a charm!

    I got mine I THINK at Cheaper Than Dirt. Cover, mount, rings, and scope was $60-$80 range I think.

    I've used the ones that replace the slide cover, they never keep the scope at zero...it will be a battle.
    I ended up using a side mount style, worked perfect.

    I own seeveral SKS rifles, Chinese, Russian, and Yugoslavian models and have been owning and shooting this rifles for 25 years. As mentioned, never buy the receiver cover mounts they do not hold zero period and have to be removed to clean the rifle. Waste of money. The best option is the Scout Mount that replaces the rear sight leaf. Its rock solid and perfect for a red dot or extended eye relief (EER) scope. This is a well made solid unit and worth the price IMO.


    These receiver cover mounts do not work, any of them so save your money





    This is the best option available today for the SKS.
