    All,

    Up until recently I've been a huge proponent of the AK rifle. Larger diameter projectile, great reliability, and (with the Yugo underfolder) ease of concealment if needed. But the problem I am coming into lately is mounting optics.

    I've purchased a mount which replaces the rear sight leaf which works fine, but just barely. The red dot I have currently mounted just barely fits the mount, forget about adding anything else.

    Are there any options for the AK series (especially the M70) that can allow a greater flexability in the mounting of optics? My preference is a mount closer to rear of the weapon so I don't have to really be concerned with long eye relief scopes.

    What is the collective experience of the board? Do I need to ditch the AK and replace with a more optics friendly AR?

    Thanks!

    RATS!!! I just read that this mount will not work for an underfolder AK. :(

    Any other suggestions from the board?

    • Get rid of the underfolder? <--- My favorite. IMHO, they're useless, and as you can see, they limit what you can do with them.

    • Learn to love your Scout Scope mount?

    • Mount a side rail?

    • Buy and install an Ultimak rail?
