The utilization of optics as well as accessories has surpassed the initial expectations of most rifles. This has made them efficient in ways that their designers never envisioned. Sadly, most are not inclusive of the AK.
One firm wishes to alter this with Picatinny rails (neat topcover). Many sufficient side-mount rail selections are available, obviously accessible to AK platform. Also, it is a developing section of the aftermarket for AK. However, nothing really matches a flattop rail as far as flexibility is concerned.
Texas Weapon Systems has a task that is fascinating, with their Dog Leg Rail. Similar to the Beryl rail, it makes use of the back sight block as a one of a couple of mounting points, even though for simple fixing, it substitutes the back sight leaf.
The rail rides the length of a custom dust cover’s top, inside a mounting bracket which locks into the back sight mount. In addition, the dust cover consists of a couple of tabs that face inwards to instantly self-center as well as sustain zero.
