Does anyone have any tips on installing a scope side rail onto a home-built receiver?
Should it be aligned to the top or the bottom of the receiver (I'm thinking top).
Does such a thing as a template exist for installing scope rails?

I installed one and used the top as a reference point. Need to have a micrometer and space it. Mine was almost dead on elevation wise when I tested with my scope.

Yes, it needs to be parallel to the top rail. Mine came with the following measurements.
Front hole = from front of receiver measure back 4.17 inches and down .866 inch from top rail.
Rear hole = from front hole measure back 2.99 inches and .807 inch from top rail.

Hey guys, who makes / sells them? Looking for one to fit a Bulgarian AK74 and a Romy7.62 kit.
Thanks in advance.

You can buy both from:
tantal.kalashnikov.guns.ru/

Request a price list from Doug. He has both styles you are looking for. I've ordered twice from him and no problems.

There are 2 different sized ones. K-Var has it for the 47 and Tantal has them all. I'll find out soon since I ordered one from K-var (47) and one from Tantal (74).

AK47 rear block www.k-var.com/product.asp?0=216&1=250&3=340 and 74 rear block www.k-var.com/product.asp?0=216&1=250&3=339 are usually different lengths. If you use the wrong one you might block the axis pins. If need be you can use anyone but it might involve a little dremeling. Why bother just get the right one.
