    I have a Yugo SKS. I'd like to put something like a Tapco stock on it, or some similar "tactical" stock. I also have a very nice PK-A red dot that went with an AK I used to own, and want to use it with my SKS. It mounts on the side as with most old Soviet bloc rifles. Tapco doesn't seem to offer an SKS stock with that side mount. Anyone know of another option?

    I see this has been viewed 115 times as of typing this message and no replies. Looks like I've come up with a genuine doozie for the group. I'm thinking I need to contact my friendly local gunsmith at this point and ask him for a quote.

    Soviet side mounts attach to the receiver not the stock. Stocks are not a normal or great place to mount a scope. The link RC posted might be the best way to go. Receiver cover mounts are pretty useless. Not that it matters most ch on a SKS.
