    What aftermarket irons exist for the SKS? I shot PSSSniper's and the sights sucked.

    I saw Williams' but will the fiberoptic be too fragile?

    And how difficult is it to install them?

    Hey Skunkster...

    Take a look at some of the advertisers over at

    http://www.ak-47.net/

    I believe you'll probably find some goodies for the SKS as well.

    Take a look at Brownells while you're at it.

    I think the install for the Williams is a major drag. You may have to register to do a search on tha site, but do one on 'peep' or 'aperture' and I think you'll find what you're looking for.

    I am currently battling sucky sights on my new SAR-1, and am going through the same research process.

    Good luck. The SKS is a pretty good old iron but like most com-bloc guns, need some decent American sights and trigger work to make it shine.

    Nice product and they stand behind it. The only complaint I had with mine was that the adjuster screw stuck up too far, and I could see it when looking through the arpeture. I sent them an email and they sent me two shorter screws free of charge for both my sights. I've got one on an SKS and another on an M38 Mosin-Nagant.

    Does the Mojo also have a frontsight with it?

    I've been tempted to buy those flourescent colored replacement front sights (cheap), sharpen one or all of them, and use in conjunction with my mojo rear. Haven't done it yet, but I'll post when I do.

    i've played with the mojo sights and don't like them much.

    i think williams makes a rear peep that'll mount to the dustcover.

    SKS Aperture Sight (reciver mounted)

    I am curently testing out a rear aperture sight for the SKS, that
    mounts to the rear of the reciever not the cover. It gives a long
    sighting radius and returns to zero after removal. The other great thing is that it does not require any drilling or taping to mount. Because the mount is direct to the reciever it is not plagued by the loose fit of the cover.
    The sight uses apertures from the M16/AR rifles, so there are a number
    of aperture sizes available, depending on your preference. If anyone is interested, contact me at TechSIGHT@nesseh.com or
    law27@techie.com.

    I've thought about getting a Williams peep for the SKS. What are the difficulties with the installation?
