    I'm new to the forum, and would like some thoughts on the notorious topic
    of sks scope mounts. I bought my first norinco d-model sks about 10 years
    ago, and ordered a cheap norinco scope and receiver mount, that never kept
    point of impact at any distance. Then I bought my current D-model 3 years
    ago and ordered the "improved" leaper's receiver mount with a 5th. generation
    6X scope. Love the scope, but everytime I go to the range and get the gun to group 2-3' at 50yds, then go back to the range next weekend, the point of impact has changed on the target, though the groups are still OK?
    I understand that the sks is a 100yd battle rifle, and though I'm skilled
    enough to hit the torso area at 100yds with the open sights, I prefer to have
    a 4X scope for a clear sight picture. I'm happy with a 3-4" group at 100yds,
    but all I want is a mount system to keep the shots in the same spot everytime
    I go back to the range! I'm considering the choate side mount, has anyone
    had consistent points of impact with this system?

    I'm tempted to get that Choate mount too or the one that just comes over it comepletely but I can still use the iron sights....but I'd have to find me a good gunsmith to put it on.
