I have the scout mount already I am hoping this setup will hold up. Alright thanks for the infoSKS's are more accurate than AK's (not that that is saying much). Getting a mount that is sturdy and reliable is the most expensive proposition. Dust cover mounts are the least desirable method.
Check Ulti-mak for their Scout mounts. Maybe someone can chime in on their reliability. Simple BSA red dots are cheap enough to get one and a back up for less than $75.
