    Does anyone know where I can find an AK optics mount that covers the dust cover? There's a nice looking one on the maini page of this site: http://www.redstararms.com/ I couldn't find the optics mount on that site though! It's not the crappy kind that's part of the dust cover, but rather the kidn that goes over the dust cover. I saw a guy use one for a Galil once. I want to put one of the Kobra red dots on the rifle. None of my AK clones have the side mount. I have a Yugo RPK, a Yugo underfolder, and two Romy G's.

    dont know where to find one but dont bother with it, those will never allow the scope to hold zero anyways

    Do I need to tap the side of my receiver then, for the side mount or what would be the best option?

    I have one like this on my WASR10.

    Mine did not come with the sight rings. Notice the screw in the rear of the mount. There are 2 allen head screws to hold it in place. Mine does not lose zero with a red dot sight.

    There are all kind of mounts. With the side mount your 50/50. My RPK's side mount is waaayyy off. Put the same scope on another rifle and it is real close to zero.

    What kind of scope are you putting on?

    There is a real nice gas tube mount that I would like to try. I'll see if I can find the link.

    I'd like to put a holo or red dot sight on it. I plan on getting one of the EO Tech holo sights.

    Solid AK Mount

    Take a look at this rail mount. I saw one on a Arsenal AK at the range last weekend. Theowner seemd very happy with it, so I have now ordered one for myself. I plan to install a EOTech on mine.
