    If I get one it will be the ts 200 with kns cross hair front.

    With the Yugo's you most certainly have to remove the rear sight leaf.

    My M59/66A1 made in 1983 with the rear leaf removed has a clear "channel" almost, so I can see the whole front sight post protector (metal ring around the front sight).

    With the Yugo's you might not have a "securing pin" that the TSR100 directions say you might have. Mine had what looked like a pin, but in reality it was just a part of the sight leaf. I skipped to the removal of the leaf using wire wrapped around the barrel, and pressing down on the leaf while pulling it back (towards the receiver).

    I first tried the Williams rear aperture on my SKS, but it has a loose fit on mine and has windage slop. Plus, it is merely slipped under a roll pin that replaces the rear sight. Like nearly all Williams sights it is fairly fragile for a "combat carbine". For a target shooter or a hunter it would be okay if it fits tightly on your SKS.

    I currently have a Mojo on my SKS. It is much more sturdy than the Williams and mounts similarly to the originals SKS rear sight. The distance of the Mojo from the eye does not make the aperture help you focus like a rear mounted aperture on a TechSights would give you.

    The other problem with a Mojo in my opinion is you sight in the elevation by raising or lowering the front sight (which is okay in itself), but the eye wants to align the Mojo with the round front sight shroud instead of aligning the Mojo with the front sight post. Due to the Mojo being so far foward, if quickly aligning the sights, the eye wants to put "circle on circle". You have to consciously put the Mojo on the post, which kind of defeats the speed advantage of an aperture sight.

    Anyway, the Mojo works but I can't say it works better than the standard SKS rear sight. The Williams has the same problem since its aperture is in the same location as the Mojo.

    Have tech sights on my Norinco. Yes they are close to the eye. Had to put a recoil pad on the buttstock to increase LOP. Once I did that, no more issues. I am 6' 200#, if that matters....Only way for my aging eyes to use open sights. Can ring the 18" gong at 200 yds all day offhand. Way lighter than my FAL.....Still like the FAL better though...

    (Sorry, lost track of the thread for a while,)

    Yes, I did have to shave some plastic off the stock to make it fit, but not much.

    And I don't mind finding the sights without a cheek rest, I'm used to doing it that way without one on an M-16 anyway.

    That's kind of to be expected.
