We offer several different choices for Red Dot and Scope Mounts, and it can be overwhelming to choose the correct one for your specific setup. This blog will explain the best mounts we offer for the AK and similar Kalashnikov Rifle platforms to help determine what mount is right for you. Since most of these rifles feature a long optic mounting rail, generally a cantilever mount is not required.
The scope mount we offer that works best for this rifle platform is the AD-Recon-S mount. This mount features vertically split rings and are interchangeable for different ring sizes if you ever upgrade your scope. These rings are precision machined, self-centering and do not need to be lapped. The Recon-S mount offers the standard 1.5” centerline height and is a straight up mount with no forward cantilever.
For the Compact ACOG and similar Prism Scopes, we offer the AD-B2-L Mount. This mount was designed for the Trijicon Compact ACOG, Primary Arms GLX/SLX and similar optics that share the Compact ACOG Footprint.
For Red Dot Optics, our Low Mounts work best on the AK Platform. For the IWI Galil and Similar platforms, the Low Mount can be used, however some people prefer the Absolute Co-Witness Heights we offer.
