    I brought my AK to the shop the other day, they specialize in AK's. I had chipped my rear butt stock and wanted a new action cover. I'm sort of looking for optics for the rifle but have no clue where to start? Any help would be appreciated.

    There are several options for optics. The simplest and most traditional in design is the AK style side mount -- which is what the scope dirtymike showed you would fit on. A lot of different optics will fit onto those rails, if they have that dropped, left-side attachment mechanism. If you don't have the side mount, your shop can probably install one for you.

    For more western/conventional scopes, there are several options. One is the UltimAK style railed gas tube that lets you mount a long-eye-relief type scope in front of the rear sight block. Another is a dogleg type like Texas Weapons Systems makes that rides above the top cover and allows a more traditional scope.

    A shop that specializes in AK work will probably be able to show you all of those options.
