A loyal reader read about the problems I was having with my red dot on my SKS and donated one of his red dot scopes. Thanks to him, I now have a high quality red dot on my SKS. I haven't been able to get out to the range yet, but I plan to go out this Friday and get it sighted in. At the same time I plan on testing the new vertical compensator on my Ruger 22/45 and make sure the POI hasn't shifted. The red dot is a Walther Top Point II, and according to the manual, is able to handle the recoil of a full sized .357 Magnum, so I have no doubt it can handle an intermediate cartridge like the 7.62x39mm in a heavy SKS.
