Mikhail’s venerable Avtomat was designed in the days when ‘optics’ meant ‘eyeballs.’ Like most of the weapons of the Great Patriotic War, the AK is stubbornly resistant to scope mounting. GG&G’s new quick-detach scope mount puts an Aimpoint-style optic so low over the dust cover that it actually co-witnesses with the AK’s iron sights . . .
It’s a little too low to be a ‘lower 1/4’ co-witness, but you’ll still have access to the iron sights if your battery dies or your red dot gets washed out in bright daylight.
MSRP is about $160, not including the scope. Vendor’s website here.
