    As the title says what optic did you put on your AK-47 .

    I have a K-Var side mount for my Arsenal 7.62x39 . Looking to ring plates out to 150 yds. I tried today with the open sights without success .

    I put a Belarus mount and a cheap mildot scope on mine. Didn't really like it. Then I installed a Tech-Sight rear aperture sight on and loved it. It shrank my groups to half of what I could do with issue rear sight.

    I've tried three or four side mounted solutions, and have yet to be happy with the results. The rear sight replacement looks like a decent solution, but I hate to give up the iron sights.

    Could people post pictures of what they have found works for them?

    Try shooting with a sling, and/or prone if you are not already. Iron sights should be fine for this, and much much more reliable than most AK optic options.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, I think I have settled on a Primary Arms micro dot on an ultimak rail for my M92. The iron sights do not work so well at night.
