    I have a bulgarian milled receiver ak and I want to take the eotech from my ar-15 and put it on my ak. I don't want to use a forward mount like ultimak or a cheap spring cover mount. I like the way my furniture sits as is so I don't want to do some big mess of stuff. I just want the best mount possible for my little red dot friend. So, what is the best optic mount right now?

    Commie side rail.

    Tantal has ones that can be retrofitted to either a stamped receiver or milled. They look professional when done, not bubba.

    E-mail him for a price list. I've bought from him before and he's always been top notch. BSW

    IMHO there aren't really any good options for scope mounting AK's or SKS's, but drill + tap the receiver for a rail seems to be the way to go.

    Milled receiver? Not sure if side rail can be installed. CNC Warrior, Krebs, Texas Weapons Systems and DPH Arms all make "Beryl" type optics rails. They mout to the RSB (some in place of sight others to the block itself) and the rear stock trunion. Simple, stable and repeatable.

    I had a SLR95 with a milled reciever. The rail looked factory and held a zero perfectly. BSW

    WEG, I love that poster. Sums up my take on the tacti-cool stuff for SKS and AK's!

    the side rail that was designed for the AK family would be my default choice.

    clears everything and nothing changes when running/maintaining the gun
