Midwest Industries is now producing a railed gas tube for AK pattern rifles. The first question anyone should have when shopping for something like this is does it place the RDS low enough to co-witness with the AK’s iron sights. According to MI, it does allow a lower 1/3rd co-witness with micro red dot sights. That instantly makes this a serious competitor in this space.
The new AK Railed Gas Tube is constructed from 6061 aluminum with a hard anodized finish. It mounts via a patent pending method and has a steel nut that can be used to adjust the length of the gas tube, closing the gap left by some competing railed gas tubes. Installation requires no permanent modification to the host AK.
The AK Railed Gas Tube is available for standard AK/AKMs with models for the Yugo M70, M85 PAP, and M92 PAP coming soon. Check it out at Midwest Industries.
Well my first question is will a RDS able to stand the heat when placed right on the gas tube?
I have used Aimpoint micros on similar rails for years and an Aimpoint M2 before that. No issues.
Now I can buy an ak gas tube rail with castle nut without supporting ‘those other guys.’
What do you mean?
Sounds like he is referring to Troy Industries. They have a habit of unapologetically hiring people who murder children and commit other unforgivable acts. I won’t be giving them any of my money either. They have lost my business for good.
I thought he meant ultimak. They made the first AK gas tube rail that co witnessed. I wonder if this is lighter.
