Default HELP Scope I bought wont fit on weaver rail

Man I hope I dint waste all this money fer nuthin.

Bought a UTG 5th gen AK receiver cover for my mak90 and a Itac Defense CP1 ilumated reticle tac scope ...


So I put the cover on , no problem. Then scope but the screws are too close together on the scope and wont seat propperly into the slots on the rail. Each screw fits into a slot so either front OR rear screw will seat but because of the screws not being far enough apart the only way I can get it on is to have the rear of the rail butted up against the rear screw on the scope. And A it looks retarded and B it couldnt be very stabe.

It looks like the scope is made for weaver rail, and the action cover, rail is supposed to be picatinny dimensions.

If, as it looks from your picture, it will go on with the rear screw against the back of the mount and if the spacing is consistent, then the spacing is correct and it should mount up.I would look to see if there is something holding the back of the mount up so that it won't seat.It looks like there is an attachment screw underneath the back holding the scope to the mount that might be sticking down far enough to hit and won't allow the rail to seat.

Hope you figure it out.

Did you want the irons in the scope's view? With a magnified optic most folks don't want co-witness. If you want a non magnified red dot for speed I could see the co-witness being a factor.

If it does not fit. you could take a file to the rail and "custom" fit the scope. Just go slow until you get the exact fit.

Take a file and deepen the slot a little, and maybe widen the slot, so it sits flush. There has always been a mismatch between picatinny and weaver.
