I'm sure that you guys have answered this before, but can anyone give me an idea about a good mid-priced scope and one easy to install. Thanks.

The biggest drawback to scoping an SKS is the mount. Currently, you have the choice of a scout scope mounted on the gas tube (not very stable), several mounts that replace the receiver cover (also not very stable), or actually screwing a mount to the side of the receiver (very stable, but scope positioning suffers). I used a Red Star reciever mount modified to lock on the retaining pin via a machine screw with a Leapers 6x32 scope. This worked surprisingly well but it wouldn't be my first choice now. Even though it mounts off-center, I'd use one of the Russian scopes on a side mount. Here's a link: Kalinka Optics Warehouse® - Rifle Scopes - Binoculars - Russian Optics - Night Vision and more.
