    I realize these guns arent sniper rifles, but it was geting one inch tight groupings at 30 yards today at the range. Its 5.45x39mm, so its a little better than an AK47. Anyways I am ordering this side rail

    I wanna throw a cheap scope on the gun, as I cant see shit at 100 yards using open sights. How does this scope look? Do you think 3-9x is a good range of magnification for 100 yards? It has really good reviews

    Also, will that scope come with all the necessary pieces for me to mount it to the pictured side rail?

    Do you already have the mounting bracket attached for that?

    No, you will have to buy rings for the scope to attach it to the rail.

    Im assuming the rail I posted is a standard rail that most scope rings will attach too

    yah, basically any scope rings will attach to that, make sure you get the right ring height though.

    Thanks. Is there any way really to tell until you get the rifle out to the range?

    all you do to install it on the side is fold back the little silver piece on the bottom and slide the rail on, then fold back to the left.

    Any feelings on that particular scope? I dont know much about them, but its not a sniper rifle so I think a 3-9x 30 dollar scope should get the job done. Is 9x enough to get a good sight at 100 yards?

    shouldnt need more then 3-4x at 100yards for an ak. it would be a waste to get anything more expensive.

    I'd go to walmart to get your scope. They carry a 3-9x scope that I have on my .22

    It may not be the best, but it works. And if it breaks, you can get a replacement for free. Its not like the check reciepts for returns or anything.
