welding a rail on top of the receiver?

Recommended Posts

i think i remember readin somthing in a TM about the M68 working better the farther forward it's mounted. I don't see any reason not to mount the sight over the gas tube. if you do weld a rail to the dust cover you might want to think about making it a hinged cover.

You don't want to mount any optics to a dust cover.


The dust cover won't stay in place during the firing of the weapon, and it won't keep a zero.


Using a hinged dust cover might be a solution, provided the cover doesn't flex under the weight of the optic (this depends on the optic, of course).

Why not a side mount?


for some reason i was under the impression they moved a lot ?


A side mount would by far move less than a mount on the dust cover.

A side mount would not move at all.


Yes im just saying if Movement of the scope is what you are worried about, commmon knowledge...Nvm lol yes what he said.

thanks guys for helping a noob. whats a good brand?

The best ones don't have a "brand".


They're Soviet military specification parts. I would not buy a side mount that wasn't made by a former Soviet satellite.




If you don't want a Soviet scope (with attached side mount), I'd recommend you find a Beryl style rail and then mount whatever you want on it.
