Can't imagine needing or wanting a scope on an AK, let alone a .22 AK.

That's probably why you're not getting many responses.

Does it have a side-mount rail? If not, are you willing to add one? It's on the left side of the rifle, above the trigger with two cutouts for the trigger and hammer hinge pins...

The scope you want (despite the fact it's a .22):

Screw it, people put better scopes on their .22s all the time. So what? Have fun with it, and don't let people convince you not to.

I got one of those POSPs for when I get my Romy kit done. It's clear and bright glass. The range-finder won't do you much good, though. :p If you get a 7.62x39 AK eventually, you can use the scope out to 300 meters (it's got pre-set reticles for 100, 200 and 300 meters).

(Heh! Too late - M. Sage has an answer...)
Wouldn't the same setup as any AK work on it? There have been some discussions on the inexpensive eastern bloc optics and mounts for AKs that should show up in a search. I'm not an AK guy, though.
