I don't know about airsoft but aa-ok.com and other sites sell real steel mounts and I'd have to assume your planning on drilling your receiver to mount one anyway so it wouldn't matter. I think I've seen CYMA and DBoys aftermarket ones before on airsoft sites, but I don't remember where.
The problems you have to worry about are getting the right one and the right scope mount to match it. I also think I remember reading that the CYMA ones where complete junkers and didn't fit anything right; again can't remember for sure so you'll have to look into it. On top of that I'd very much reccomend against putting one on a plastic receiver; if you don't crack it while drilling it then the weight of any type of optics will likely break it.
I matched up a DBoys dovetail and a Romanian LPS/TIP2 without too much trouble; I haven't tried any other combinations though. Here's a link with some good basics on Soviet/Russian scope mounts: www.russianoptics.net/Concepts.html
