New optic for sks

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I recently put a scout mount base on my SKS, it mounts over the gas block forward of the action. I'm looking for either a low power scope or maybe a red dot scope. I don't want to spend more than 100$ but i don't want something cheap like a NC star or Simmons. Does anybody have any good ideas for a scope or red dot to put on it? Im thinking maybe a Bushnell TRS 25 or Bushnell trophy red dot.

Burris fastfire.
Although personally I am quite content with existing explosives, I feel we must not stand in the path of improvement.

Mounting optics on an SKS is problematic - there isn't anything stable enough to provide a platform that will maintain zero. I replaced the crappy rear notch issue sight with a Williams aperture, and it gives me all the accuracy potential that this rifle and cartridge can provide.

Reviving old .
Having problem using the sights on SKS , it is my vision , have a pair of glasses I hunt with ,but they are fixed magnification , can't see up close . So I am looking to put optics on my rifle so I can continue to hunt with it (4x32) . Please no comments on change calibers , have others , or why scope a SKS , I either have to scope it or change bush gun . Thanks

Burris FF III

I like the Burris Fastfire III for a red dot sight. Small, light & accurate.
