Ok I bought this: Aim Sports Mount
not realizing how incredibly crappy it is. I don't want to install it on the gun, it seems like it won't hold zero and will mar up the receiver.
I'm looking at this instead: UTG Mosin Tri-rail mount
The hideous side rails come off and it mounts the same way as the S&K, by removing the rear sight spring. The S&K looks better but I don't want to spend more than I spent on the gun to put a scope on, especially when I thought I could use a dovetail like an m91. Anyone have an experience w/the UTG mount?
