Great for your AK/SKS/VZ – Fishbone Shaped Aluminum Alloy Scope Mount Side Base for AK47 Reviews

posted by TRaTSeRiF on 11/23/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Price - this is dirt cheap. About half the shipped price of e-bay stuff and about 1/3 of Canadian pricing -Easy to put on and take off, so you can transport your optics to the range safely and so you can use different optics for different targets/distances -Fits a standard AK dovetail without any issues
Cons:
-Didn't come with instructions so it took a bit of doing to figure out that the tension is adjustable. At first it was too loose and I spent a bit of time scratching my head
Other:
-The mount is great for an AK or a VZ but a bit too tall for the SKS. Will require a cheek rest in addition to cutting off the vertical piece, flattening the bottom of the siderail mount and attaching it to the bottom bracket (most likely tapping the bottom bracket and using machine screws).
Bottomline:
-Great for an AK or a VZ, can be used for SKS, stupid low price, what's not to like?
