    Tasco Pro Point red dots are often used in competition and are available for less than $100. They have cheaper models that aren't Pro Point, but those are the real cheapies.

    If you want a scope try nightvision, it slides on the rail of the SAR-1

    South PA, and a bit West of center!
    Using mine mostly for plinking, and just make do with a real cheapo ''BEC'' ... Chinese for sure but from Sportsman's Guide a mere $30 or so. It actually does very well for such a cheapie. Adequate!

    With my old tired eyes I have red dots on almost everything - so some gotta be cheap!

    Time I took a new pic ... this Mac stock is gone and am back to std config.

    I have a Belarussian PK-AS that I absolutely LOVE. check out www.freedomoptics.com and http://tantal.kalashnikov.guns.ru/pkas.html

    The PK-AS runs about $200, has the mount built in and keeps its zero after unmounting and remounting. The optic runs on a typical watch battery, and the reticle is a circle, with a 1 MOA dot in the middle. Even with the power off, the dot still shows up black. It has variable illuminaton. The outer circle of the reticle is not illuminated, just black.

    The sight sits left of center-bore. I thought this might be weird, but after getting it mounted and trying it out, its not.. it works great as a both-eyes-open, fast target acquisition sight, and the 1 MOA dot works great for longer range shooting, as it wont cover up your target.

    check out the ak-47 forums at www.gunsnet.net/forums for more reviews.

    Zeroing it was slightly tedious, as you have to unmount it each time to make an adjustment to windage, but once I got it dialed in, its perfect, and has an easily adjustbale elevation knob that you can change on the fly for different distances.

    heres my SAR-1 with the PK-AS
