SKS Type 56 Scope Mount - S&K Scope Mounts
Installation Instructions for the SKS type 56 scope mount
1. Make sure rifle is unloaded.
2. Remove rear cover retaining pin from rear of rifle. (The small cross pin in the retaining pin can be punched out, or simply sheared off by slipping a flat punch through the left side of the receiver, lining it up carefully with the retaining pin and smacking it with a hammer.)
3. A detailed illustration provided with the mount shows the position of the screws for assembly.
4. After installation: Make sure top of mount is parallel with bore by laying straight-edge on top of base if necessary, use optical collimator. Then prick punch through center of short set screw hole on front side plate. Remove mount, and make certain prick punch mark on left side is heavy enough to receive end of short set screw.The ejection of spent cartridges from the SKS is quite violent and somewhat erratic. Proper ejection is somewhat flat and about 30 degrees to front. The ejection path should be altered by altering ejector to contact left edge of cartridge if cartridge goes too far front. A large objective lens scope should be avoided if possible, to give the spent cartridges ample clearance.
