Saiga 308

How about this one?

It's less than a third the cost of a SIG 716. Surefire 25 rd mags are ~$40; a bit more than the 308 p-mags.

Can you attach a flash suppressor or brake w/o much hassle?

How much would a solid scope mount run?

you would need to remove the sight post and either thread you muzzle for the flash hider or install sight post with 24x1.5 RH threads - thats what I did for my saiga. dinzagarms.com has them
solid side scope mount is about $50 at kalinka optics

It's an Izzy so I'm sure it's great but what are you going to do with it? SHTF purpose?

No way to mount a brake without a HUGE headache.

Scope mount will cost $100 for a nice ADM that'll lock into side mount and hold/return to zero.

This is the one your want, VASTLY superior to the old Soviet crap-

if you are looking for US made mounts - they are expensive, but Russian PK-02 work fine holding zero after many many times I took it off and put it on. they are made to withstand 7.62x54r recoil on SVD rifles

The difference in price between the Kalinka and the MI is negligible when you consider the advantages of the MI. The mount doesn't bend metal to stay in place, it uses an ADM lock that will 100% RTZ and not flex/bend/move over time like the Kalinka. It's a solid 1 piece mount unlike the Kalinka which uses screws to attach the rail to the rest of the mount which eventually back themselves out over time. It's made in the USA, carries a lifetime warranty, weighs less and is coated in melonite to resist corrosion. All in all, for the price difference, it's a no brainer- you eliminate 6+ points of failure for $50.

I am not saying that Kalinka is as good as MI, all I am saying that Kalinka was good for me and worked fine for many many other hunters and shooters in Russia and here. it's all about bang for a buck, what will do the job for less.

I am not suggesting UTG mounts because they are crap, Kalinka does the job, MI is superior to both for sure
