I have a Romanian AKM-47 (not that that matters, an AK is an AK) with a CQB scope mounted on it using the side rail. No vibration. The reason for this is that I put a drop of red liquid on each allen screw and then screwed the allen screws into place. This liquid (and for the life of me I cannot remember the name of it) comes in two colors, red and blue. Once the red sets up, the screws have to be heated to at least 500 degrees in order to remove them, the blue, just a little force. I found this out the hard way. But since I do not plan on removing the mount, no harm done. You can also try a picatinney rail dust cover that Brownell's sells. Either way will work just fine.

Can you drill and tap the top of the reciever and instal a picatany rail? I do not want to buy a reciever with rails built in I dont want to spend extra cash how can I mount an optic on top of the reciever close to my eye?

I've had my Mitchell Arms Yugoslavian pre-ban M70 AK folder 24 years. It has the original Yugo scope mount and a Ukrainian FED 1.5x4.5 scope I picked up last year. I average 2-2.5" groups at 100 yards with no problems and nothing's ever become loose. Other than using a side rail I'd recommend only a mounting system that is used in place of the rear sight. Mounting a scope on the receiver cover is probably the worse thing you can do. Since it's your weapon you have every right to try it though. Good luck.
