You can use any scope you wan’t. As for mounting it there are three basic ways. If you gun can accept it there are scope mounts that attach to the side of the receiver. But the receiver needs a special bar. Usally put on when the receiver is put together. It’s in a C shape. Another way is a rail you use that is installed in the rear sight by removing the rear sight. And another way is there are dust covers with a rail installed. Personally I would prefer the first method as it is the most sturdy of the 3.
