So I just acquired a very nice polytech sks, mid-60's model from what I can gather. It's a great gun, except... I want to make it my main rifle for SHTF. I've always been a big fan of the sks, but it surely needs a little push into modern times. What I need is some ideas on a scope mount that still lets me use iron sights, a good idea that will help me to keep tension on the cleaning rod when I take off the bayonet, and some general advice when converting this rifle. What I DON'T need is guys coming in here with the "Just buy an AK" or "its not worth the time" comments, because it wastes everyone's time. Any help is greatly appreciated.
