I went looking for a side scope mount for my SAR3 yesterday and left empty-handed. The gentleman (also a gunsmith) at a locally reknown gunshop didn't have any nor did he know of anywhere in the metro area where one could be had. When I mentioned I could order from several sources on the internet he stated to be wary as there are about three different types and configurations and some of the mounts were too low to the receiver and would cause the ejected casings to hit the scope or not allow many scopes to be mounted. Now, I'm at a loss since many of the internet sites claim their mounts will fit any AK and any variant. Any thoughts out there? Was he right? Was he wrong? I would hate to order one from an internet site to find out he was right. On the other hand he might be misinformed......I don't know which.
