    I am in the process of putting a scope on a k-31 . I have the scout type mount that replaces the rear sight on the way. Question is what scope do I use ? Are there special scout scopes ? I thought you just used a pistol scope but when I found one that I wanted it said it had a 20 inch eye relief !! That seams way to long for this ..... Can someone steer me in the right direction please ..

    another is the Burris
    Rifle Scopes Features:
    Burris Scout Series 2.75X, Heavy Plex Reticle - BU 200269 The scout scope concept has been around for years, but it seems only knowledgeable avid sportsmen consider the concept. It is an ultra-fast, compact, lightweight, rugged and accurate scope sighting system. Some start out thinking it is not enough magnification for good accuracy, but shooters consistently produce one inch or under groups at 100 yards with the 2.75X scout scope. With the guide guns and timber carbine big bores sweeping the deer woods, the popularity of the scout scope is bound to increase, and the success stories to follow.

    I myself am using a variable power handgun scope
    Rifle Scopes Features:
    Burris Handgun Series 1.5X4mm, Plex Reticle - BU 200214 These elite scopes are ultra tough top to bottom, and feature highquality multicoated optics throughout. And look at the variety.Burris offers eight handgun scope models allowing you to better matchup the ideal optic for your requirements. If it’s a heavy recoiler,go with one of the Posi-Lock models for even more rock solid performance.

    If you don't want the magnification consider a dot sight such as the
    The Trijicon Reflex sight or OKO (I use these also) - some like the Eotech but I have'nt purchased one yet to try.

    The one I was looking at is the Bushnell elite 3200 2-6x32 with the firefly reticle .

    That looks like a 20 inch eye relief - get a helper and with an empty gun have them measure 20 inch from your eye - that's where the back end of the scope has to be to make it work correctly - on my scout rifle (mini-14) it's only 12.5 inch from back of my scope to my eyeglasses. Don't think I could move my scope forward another 7 inches. Maybe on an AR with Rifle length free floated rail forearm?
