AK optics mount that covers the dust cover
Does anyone know where I can find an AK optics mount that covers the dust cover? There's a nice looking one on the maini page of this site: I couldn't find the optics mount on that site though! It's not the crappy kind that's part of the dust cover, but rather the kidn that goes over the dust cover. I saw a guy use one for a Galil once. I want to put one of the Kobra red dots on the rifle. None of my AK clones have the side mount. I have a Yugo RPK, a Yugo underfolder, and two Romy G's.

dont know where to find one but dont bother with it, those will never allow the scope to hold zero anyways

Do I need to tap the side of my receiver then, for the side mount or what would be the best option?

I have one like this on my WASR10.

Mine did not come with the sight rings. Notice the screw in the rear of the mount. There are 2 allen head screws to hold it in place. Mine does not lose zero with a red dot sight.

There are all kind of mounts. With the side mount your 50/50. My RPK's side mount is waaayyy off. Put the same scope on another rifle and it is real close to zero.

What kind of scope are you putting on?

There is a real nice gas tube mount that I would like to try. I'll see if I can find the link.

Here is the one I like. Looks very solid. Try a google for AK scope mounts.

I'd like to put a holo or red dot sight on it. I plan on getting one of the EO Tech holo sights.

Solid AK Mount
Take a look at this rail mount. I saw one on a Arsenal AK at the range last weekend. Theowner seemd very happy with it, so I have now ordered one for myself. I plan to install a EOTech on mine.
