Just got my first AK47...It's an M70 OPAP, arrived yesterday from J&G. Cleaned and lubed it and then took to range today. To sight it you have to have your cheek against the back end of the dust cover. My right cheek is pretty sore after just one mag--what can I do to improve this? Had a little trouble getting mag to seat and chamber first round both on the metal and the plastic tapco--any trick to this? Odd side rail for optics--looks like expensive rube goldberg looking mounts must be used. Has anyone simply attached a rail to the top of the dust cover? Looks like 2 flathead bolt countersunk under the dust cover should work for attaching one. thx for any info.
