ive seen quite a few pictures on here of people with some pretty big scopes on their AKs. what kind of accuracy are you looking at? ive never known AKs to be too accurate but then again i dont have a whole lot of experience with them
My Dad scoped his for the same reason. . . although I've scoped one of my primary AKs and had great results past 200-300 yards. Can't give you a group size, but the gongs went "thump" about 10-15% more often.
However, I have not tested the scope (1-4x) against my new sight set up. A rear peep narrow ball point front combo. It WORKS! Finally found the answer to the AK-47 sight issue, I believe it can almost eliminate the human factor after the shooter becomes proficient with the firearm. Eventually all my traditionals will wear those and the customs probably dots. (same cost.)
I have two WASR 10/63s, and both wear EOTECH 517s. Effective, and it roughly follows my rule of optics approximate weapon in price... When your life is on the line, don't go cheap...
yea completely understandable, i have a red dot sight on my wasr as well. i was more talkin about scopes with magnification. and if i could afford it i would have an eotech. i use one at work and personally i like it more than an acog or elcan. especially with a 3x magnifier on it. eotechs are surprisingly tough, great optics.
