AK Master Mount – No Mod, No Gunsmith AK Side Rail

If you have an AK that does not have a factory installed side rail for optics mounting, you may think you are limited to rear sight or gas tube based optics mounts. Maybe not…

The AK Master Mount touts itself as, “The “no mod” solution for those that want classic side mount optics on their AK styled rifles without a factory side rail.  This proprietary side rail can be attached in minutes, without permanent modifications, or the need for a gunsmith.”

It mounts via supplied pins that pass through the AK’s trigger and hammer holes in the receiver. AK Master Mount states that installation is easy, that the rail is solid and parallel to the bore, and that the shepherds crook is no longer required which is a nice bonus. The AK Master Mount accommodates a wide selection of receiver types including several milled and stamped varieties.

MI AK Railed Gas Tube

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.
