I was wondering if a red-dot sight on the rail mounted above the gas-tube on a SKS is usefull. Seems like that particular piece of plastic (excuse me...polymer....ITS STILL DAMN PLASTIC!!!) is not a very stable base for ANY sight....any help would be appreciated...suggestions for what all these tapco rails could be good for would also help.
I have seen first hand an sks modified with the Tapco kit and the guy who owned it had done a file and shim fit on his stock so the hand guard pressed firmly against the main stock providing great stability. He had a Millet red dot (model I dont know) on it and was probably popping off 2-2.5 MOA with Cabela's brand ammo... Not too shabby and it was certainly fun to feel "tacticool"...
I have an SKS with the full Tapco set up. The handguard moves a lot. I tried a red dot on mine. At 100 yards it was shooting what seemed like 3 foot groups. Mine was a terrible set up. I still use the rifle and stock. But I only use iron sights.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
