This scope is designed for the SVD sniper rifle. Will it fit onto a basic AK47 or Saiga? Are the side mount for these rifles identicle? Is there a difference in how high it sits over the dust cover?

Thanks,
Joe

SVD and AK are different mounts. AK slides on from the back while the SVD slides on from the front. BSW

I think you can drill out the old mount and install a SVD style mount to a Saiga (think I remember talking to someone that did just that, but not sure). FWIW I wouldn't go through the effort of doing the conversion, just get the VEPR style or a conventional scope and P. rail mount for the side mount you already have. :)

Not really.

The easiest way to tell the difference between the mounts is the angles on the bottom rail. If you are putting a SVD rail on from the front, you're doing it wrong. There is a stop pin at the front that must be against the front edge of the rifle's rail to stop the scope from moving forward.

Many people are using a SVD mount on an AK rail. In which case, the ONLY way to get it on is from the front but the mount will loosen under recoil.


AK mount. Notice how the bottom edge of the rail is straight across.

SKS/SVD mount. Notice the angle on the back edge of the bottom rail.

Here is someone with a SVD mount on an AK. Headaches will commence
shortly.
