I did, and the position of the led location on the TRS-25 directly blocked my only co-witness of lower 1/3. Being that the rear sight on the beryl rail is just a little dove tail flip up I had little choice other than having a see through bridge riser for which the one I have is taller than I need and I have ordered one 1/4 shorter. I did bother me at first, the hight of the riser and as said I'm gonna try the shorter from 1" to 3/4" or even a QD mount to switch from optic to iron sight..... Any ideas or suggestions Thanks

I just picked up a converted Saiga w/ a TWS rail/dust cover on it w/ the bolt on peep sight. I threw a PA Micro on it w/ the pic/ non riser mount and it appears to be gtg. In the living room anyway lol. Just picked it up Sat. night. Ill post a pic in a couple to give you a visual. You know they say males are visual.

Mike,

There is a new version coming out that has a standard AK rear sight on it. I'm waiting for that guy, me and peeps don't get along.

That would be nice. Ill have to look into it. Is it bolt on or built into the rail?

OP, I posted up a pic of the new Saiga in the pic thread.

The sights were the main reason I hesitated for a while before getting my AK. I love the AR sights getting use to AK sights though. I think with AR sights on the AK it becomes the perfect semi auto
