    The number one most pointed to reason for the Kalashnikov systems inaccuracy has been for years the sighting system. I can't really argue with that, every AK I've fired my eyes had a hard time lining up a good shot when the front and rear sight together made a solid wall, or when the rear sight jumped from side to side losing it's zero every shot. Meanwhile, AR-15 owners have been hitting dead center with their aperture sights. In my only two experiences with AR-15's, that nifty little donut shaped rear sight always seems better on the eyes.

    Mojo came out with what some have called a flimsy aperture sight for the AK a few years ago. Others have tried, but failed. However, Tech-Sight's [strike]recently[/strike] finally released their aperture sighting system for the AK. So naturally I zoomed to AK-enthusiast blogs, nut'n fancy's Youtube site, and googled the term "Tech-Sight AK Review" in several variations.

    But I give up, I can't find a review that includes a before and after of the AK platform with a standard sight and a tech-sight.

    So certainly someone here on THR HAS a tech-sight, and surely someone here has done a comparison. At least, I'm hoping. My search queries are turning up empty. So, has anyone tried this thing?

    I have been waiting for this to come out for a long time. I didn't realize it was finally out. I'm interested to hear any user reports as well.

    You are assuming someone actually has one yet. They just came out give it some time.
