Where can I find a good side mount with a picatinny rail for my saiga .308?I'm used to AR's but the saiga just followed me home.What's a fella to do ?

Same here, I'd like to know which scope mounting system is prefered.  I have heard that several of the cantilever mounts do not line up right with the barrel.  Then I have heard that all mounts that fit on the rear dust cover do not retain zero during operation.

These guys have the high and low profile and are probably about $5 high and Tantal sells them also I believe and another company but I can not remember their name. LOL American something or Freedom I think.

I have the K-VAR on mine. I like it but haven't got to try it out enough. The one time I did use it I didn't get enough loctite on the brackets and the scope moved.

I'll try to zero it again and get things tight this time. (maybe next Summer?)

Has anyone ever used a "Scout Scope Mount"!  http://www.scoutscopes.com/

It looks to me like they would only be used with red dot or unlimited eye relief type optics.  Don't think I'm looking for this one but I was curious how it attaches to the rifle.  It appears it bolts on somehow.
