    finally got the scope sighted in on my chinese rifle last week and was pretty amazed at the results,once i got it on paper i was able to keep over 120 rounds on a 3" target@100yds.i was inclined to believe that these guns were prone to "spray and pray syndrome",has anyone else had these results with a chinese gun? by the way,mine is in mint cond. with the so-called "jungle" stock and has a screw-in,full-length barrel (not a paratrooper). for what it's worth,i don't get the same results w/open sights due to the fact that i can't see what i'm shooting at.(getting older SUCKS!).
  2. Thats fantastic. Both my sons have scoped sks s. Each have shot there first deer with them. Usually the patern walks when the barrel gets hot. The first one I had to weld the mount to the reciever cover, that stopped the screws from comming loose.

    Is your mount one that attaches to the receiver? Not the cover?

    Older? Just aim at the blur in the same spot.

    That's what I keep tellin' people - a scope and good commercial ammo makes an SKS shine! I do well with the little 4X shorty scope, as I need a clear view more than magnification.
    With open sights, I shoot "center of fuzzy mass"! LOL

    i'm using the red star mount that replaces the reciever cover and a leapers 6x32 scope.the mount is a "file-to-fit" as you have to file the front ears to install it.the mount is pretty flimsy but i 'smithed it a little bit-spread and tapered the frt ears to create an interference fit with the reciever and drilled and tapped an 8x32 hole in the rear of cover at the bottom of the pin hole and installed a short screw with a tapered end.when you tighten the screw it contacts the underside of the cover pin and pulls the rear of the mount down solid to the reciever and keeps it from walking side-to-side and up and down.the mounting bar itself pivots on a rivet at the front and uses a lock bolt at the back to accomplish rough windage adjustments,but now that i've got it sighted,i will probably epoxy or spot-weld it in place so it won't move.
  5. I put on the shorty Simmons 4x with the B-Square mount and I can actually hit what I shoot at. I agree with Big Dog. I need the clear view. I shot it a bunch of times without the scope and just did OK. With the scope, its extremely accurate and 3" groups are the norm.
  6. Figured you had a stable mounting system. I had a Red Star Scope 4X on the first SKS. Red Star scope was a piece of krap. The parrallux was Off or something of that nature. Changed to a cheap-po 6X and does great.

    I put the hi-rise scope mount from TAPCO on mine with a 3x9 Tasco scope on my Chines SKS useing Wofl ammo and Tiger brand ammo got 2-3" grops at 100 yards. I was realy impressed. This kept up for 2 more range session so Im all happy. Last weekend I was plinking at tthe 50 yard range...with a few toys and grabed the SKS...did not check the mount welp first 10 shoots were great then sundely Im shooting all over the place...spray and pry would have been an inprovement....I tried off a rest, slowing down..ect no help...about the time I was going to give up and call the rifle a peice of junk I notice the mount had come lose...(Ok I get the Well DUH award).
    I also have the shell deflector but I dont see it doing much..scope gets a few nicks..looking at the design it does not sem to go over to the right far enough to deflect the caseings....still playing with it.

    I would like to see what the SKS could do with match grade or handloaded ammo. I read somewear that the Draganov with surpluss did like 10" groups and with hand loads 1" or better....I have a felling the SKS with match ammo would amzae us all.
