I need a scope for anything over 100 yards. You must have young eyes.

I'm glad you like it. I was wondering about Saiga quality.
I was blessed with excellent vision. I'm 43 now and it seems to get better every year. My sister has glasses about 5/8" thick and is legally blind without them. Go figure.

Animals, especially, just pop out of the background when I'm in the woods. My hunting partner has never been able to understand how I do it. We have been hunting together for about 30 years now.

But the Saiga is really a nice little carbine. And they are very affordable. Check one out if you get the chance.

Yes,I used the side mount. It is the best one that I could find,the only thing I don't like about it is the scope sets too high. Here's a pic of it,I have changed the rings and scope since. I just had these setting around when I bought the mount and put it on the rifle.

The scope is way too high with the side mount, eh? I'll try to find a new dustcover with a rail. If not, no biggie. I like it the way it is.

I played with the .308 Saiga yesterday and may need one of those, too.

It's not that high with the scope and rings that are on it now,but it is alot higher than I prefer. Someone gave me that old Bushnell Banner scope and the Xtra high rings that are in the picture. But I actually sighted it in at 100yrds with it set up like the photo,and it shot decent groups.Go Figure????

It won't affect 100 yard group size. But the cheekweld is shot.

m14s,

Here's another mount that sits a little bit lower and inline with the barrel.

I use a DPH Arms Beryl style mount on my Arsenal, but for an EOTech. It's rock solid. I hear that the dust cover mounts have a lot of movement, and it makes sense. Hope this helps.
