    So I got the new AK now, the next thing is going to be some optics for it. What is the best way to go for a mounting system on an AK to stay on a tight budget but still have something that will work well and not let the scope bounce around?

    Oh and while I may change my mind and go with a reagular scope I will most likely go with a halo dot of some sort, have to look through some and see what I can find.

    Make you a deal on it.

    It replaces the rear site leaf.

    That is what it can look like installed with the A2 Site installed:)

    Now, THAAT is what I'm talkin' about!! What's the scoop on that scope? Looks like enough eye relief for a long nosed dachshundt.

    Some of Magnus' are nicer in my opinion than that one. He has some beauties.

    It is a Red Dot, copy of the Aim Point I think... if not the real deal?

    I see it has the CD for instalation, how difficult is it to install and to uninstall if needed (like hunting or otherwise need the rifle and the scope get screwed up) so as to use the irons or can you see the irons with it on? Looks pretty nice though. What would you want for it? You can PM me if you prefer or just post here.

    It can replace the rear sight with an AR like Peep. I have a better pic at work I will post later after I run the kids around town to look at Christmas lights. I want to get $45 out of it, but for you $40 shipped [booze]

    To install you remove the rear sight leaf which is kinda booger but not permant. Only work to be done is a little drilling and tapping of a small metal tab that helps adjust the vertical alignment of the sight.

    Here is a pic of the other one I have. The Silver one DOES NOT come with the rear sight drum. But this is how it will look if you do install it.

    Yes, that is very nice. ;) I am going to pick one up perhaps. I will still go for the side mounted scope, though.

    Yeah thats one thing for me, I pretty much have to top mount my scopes because while I shoot almost as well with either hand I do most of my shooting left handed but if the target is in a better position for right handed shooting I jst switch hands, dont figure that works to well if the scope is mounted to the side.

    I like the authenticity of the side mount:)

    The scope is a cheap one and I think I may find a Russkie model to put on it...
