Scope on an AK?
RON L here =SERESURPLUS
As far as installing a scope on an ak, yes, it can be done! Should it be, now thats the real question? Theier are kits you can get that replace the reciever cover with one with a scope mount welded on tht part, I see those as worthless and they shift around a lot!
Another company has as the the other fellow said, some mount that you can drill into the reciever and mount it above the cover?? Too silly a look and feel and DRILL YOUR RECEIVER??? NAW!
The way I have seen it done on some of the Romainain as well as some of the other Comm Block countried is they have a welded or screwed on the received solid plate that a mount will lock up sould onto! Then with a smaller scxope, it is above the cover, well mounted and will aloow for proper eye relief with most scopes!
The main problem I have with it, is as I do with SKS thought it's easier to mount on an SKS, mounting a scope on an AK or An sks seems to throw the ballence of the rifle or carbine off? It feels funky with a scope on it and though you can hit things with the scope, I've found the rear Peep type of sites that you can get for SKS and AK work soooo much better than any scope? No magnificatiojn of course, but they are well made sites that fit any ak or sks! Re-think this one, or you might well be sorry ya did it?
