NCS MTSKS waste of money!!!

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on April 28, 2013
When I first got this and took it out of the box (box was nice and good quality...it ended there)the first thing I noticed was the absolute cheapest cast possible, the tri-rail looked nice. The factory grinding was horrible and it TOTALLY did not fit in any way shape or form. The hole in it did not line up and was almost completely through with no metal showing. It was an absolute waste of time and money! I was scared to even try another brand after seeing what a horrible item this was. I was unable to get it to work properly at all as by the time I filed enough material off of it to fit, there was not enough to make it useable/safe to even use. I ended up throwing it away and I bought a UTG which was much better quality and fit with only a bare minimum of filing.
Pros: Low price
Cons: Nothing good about it, waste of money...
Would recommend: No

Better have a file set!!!

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 4, 2013
Holy crap I wish I had seen all of the warnings about this mount before I started. You can quickly tell what the issue is when you initially put it on, and it is about 3-4mm off. You will see that the front needs to be filed and sanded to fit. This can be a plus, but WOW, you damn near need a rasp just to get anywhere with it. Either way, you will put about 30min. into it and then you are gtg, but don't forget to take off the side mount attachments when you reinsert the pin(scratched mine a bit). She will definitely though.
Pros: cheap
Cons: you will pay in man hours filing and sanding...
Would recommend: Yes

Not made well & not worth buying

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 3, 2012
had a similar mount, but didn't have side mount support. So I tried this one. Well after about an hour of very careful filling I could not get the rifle pin to go through the mount to hold it to the rifle. I continued to fill the front of the mount figuring that was the problem. However, upon more looking, I found that the notch in the mount was too small for the rifle pin. So I filled it a little wider. BUT, now the front area of the mount that I had filled so FING carefully was now too much and the whole FING thing is too loose. Recommend that nobody try these "bubba" devices, as the SKS is really NOT designed for a scope and these products are really just crap.
Pros: none
Cons: waste of time & money...
Would recommend: No

Difficult to get to fit but worth it

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on February 14, 2011
I had to do quite a bit of filing of the tabs at the lower front of the cover in order to get it to fit my Chinese paratooper SKS. When I did get it to fit, I was impressed with the solid fit, so that any scope mounted on the rail should not lose its zero any time soon. Very happy with the end product, but be sure to have some good files and a lot of elbow grease on hand in order to get it to fit!
Pros: Good solid scope mount. No wobbles or play.
Cons: Much filing required to get it to fit Chinese SKS....
Would recommend: Yes

dremel works wonders

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 9, 2011
when u get it look at the thickness of the inner rails on cover, there is a high spot a dremel removes it also the two leg tab guides in front need to be longer so remove some of the face of the arch on front of cover, just look at old cover and match the differances and use a dremel, its steel too the cover is not aluminum.
Pros: once fitted works great
Cons: needs fitting, NOT aluminum...

NcSTAR Tactical SKS Scope Mount With Weaver Tri-rail MTSKS

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 11, 2008
Nice looking scope mount with nice features but...

Right out of the box the front tabs were already too short for my Norinco SKS. The front of the tabs appeared to have been hand filed at one time and then reblued. Perhaps I was sent a restocked or "refurbished" mount? Another issue mine had was that the receiver cover pin would not go into the hole in the NC Star receiver cover mount. The keyway slot at the bottom of the hole was too shallow and narrow for the factory original retaining pin of my Norinco. I'm an old crusty machinist and I have the measuring tools and knowledge to figure these things out. One other thing I noticed; the tri rail on my unit was not screwed all the way down onto the NC Star receiver cover/mount base. That would cause the scope's point of aim to shift around. I screwed it down and Locktighted the screws. I opened the keyway slot below the hole for the cover retaining pin using a Dremel and cutting disk. I used JB Weld to re-build the front tabs so I could get the mount tight. It sort of worked. I was shooting inch groups at 100 yds but my point of impact would shift everytime I removed the mount/cover to clean the gun. Not good enough for me. I discarded the NCStar Tri rail scope mount and built myself a permanent side mount with weaver rail. Similar to some other commercially available mounts.

The height of the NC Star Tri Rail scope mount is 1/4" taller than it needs to be to allow the shooter to use their iron sights.Cheek weld becomes a...
