Hello everyone. I have a WASR10 7.62 x 39 AK style rifle. My cousin insists I shouldn't buy an expensive Bushnell or EOtech red dot system for my rifle. Apparently the rifle doesn't group close enough to use an expensive CQB reticle system and If I do buy one, I should buy a heat guard with integrated weaver/picatinni rail system. Apparently the correct spot to place a reticle system like this on an AK, is above the rifle' gas system vs. installing it in the traditional scope position using a side mount which puts it above the receiver. First question: is it a waste of $$$ putting a nice reticle sight on an AK47 style rifle? Second question: where is the correct location to install a reticle system like this? To give my cousin credit, he was in the Marines, continues to support the Marines as a contractor and has many rifles. I'm just trying to get more insight here. Thanks for the answers and/suggestions! Attached is a pic of my WASR10' current config.
