    Does anyone have a Saiga Weaver Style Scope Mount with Tactical Rings? This is complete with receiver cover, tactical rail and scope mounts:

    Please advise if you like it on the Saiga. Post a photo of the rifle, if possible.
    TIA

    Receiver cover mounts rarely perform well for optics.

    They are too flimsy to return to zero after you remove them for cleaning and can also lose zero during regular carriage and firing.

    Best option is to get one of these:

    Ditto above. Receiver cover mounts really don't hold zero well. Use your side rail!
