RS Regulate is teasing their Facebook fans with what appears to be a pretty exciting new rear sight for AK rifles. We don’t know a lot about it at this point but we can speculate.
RS Regulate is known for their optic mounts that utilize the side rail that is found on many AKs. This appears to be a peep style rear sight that attaches to the side rail. This would allow the sight to be positioned further back on the rifle which would extend the sight radius. Peep sights really don’t work as well unless they are near the shooter’s eye which is exactly where this would be.
This has the potential to be a very exciting development for the AK shooters. I will release more details and images when I have them.
Nice, a side mount tech sight. we totally need that. http://www.tech-sights.com/ak.htm
Considering that Tech-Sights make it so receiver cover can’t be removed easily to clear malfunctions, I would say we do need an alternative. Tech-Sights work well as a sighting system but the current receiver cover situation is less than ideal.
Agreed Matt. One of the VERY few malfunctions I had with my AMD required a dust cover removal.(the case somehow got behind the bolt carrier)
