Hello RVulcan and welcome. I'm not sure if you know this but it's customary for people to pass out maple syrup when they join.  :)

Greetings from NM!  Glad to have you aboard.  What particular SKS flavor draws your interest?

Welcome from SW Missouri! Glad you joined us, Rvulcan500! Great bunch of guys here and a wealth of information to be gleaned.  We love to accumulate new data on the SKS family and always love to see pics of the various SKS' or entire collections that our members come up with!

*Edit: I'm curious as to what mount you've used to mount your scope?  It doesn't appear to be a Receiver Cover-type mount?  But I can't see the left side, either.

Sorry about not getting the image up sooner
I used a pu scope with mount made for an sks
By accumount.  Steep price alot of saving up
But we'll worth it

Normally I don't care for a scoped SKS, but that rig looks pretty good to me.

Thank you.  One draw back is the mount is milled so it adds a bit more weight
