Texas Weapon Systems Dog Leg Rail, Gen-3 - AKM, AK-47 / 74

Keeping your shots on target is what it’s all about. Whether you require the quick target acquisition of a red dot or the range of a magnified optic, the Gen-3 Dog Leg TM scope rail has you covered. Mounted directly over the receiver, the patented Dog LegTM scope rail with integral dust cover provides optimal balance, generous rail space, and protects delicate optics from barrel heat. The ingeniously simple and rugged design provides a rock solid mount for accuracy and a forward hinged, quick release cover with rear cam lock design to preserve the AK’s field stripping qualities. The quick release hinge also allows the use of longer scopes without the need for quick detach mounts. Available in various configurations for standard pattern AK, Yugo, C39 and PSL rifles.

Kit Includes

  • Dog Leg Rail Top Cover
  • Hinge Fork with takedown pin (pre-installed)
  • Hinge Base with screw
  • Nut Plate (under hinge base)
  • Hinge Base Pin & retaining clip
  • Cover Release Button
  • Allen wrench


NOTE: Some rifles need an additional part (PN 55315 - Guide Wire & Retainer Cap / 6”) that works in conjunction with the TWS supplied Cover Release Button. Most AK rifles have a recoil spring assembly that consists of two long “U” shaped wires that loop together. The two looped wires assemble inside the recoil spring.

If your AK rifle has a telescopic tubular type recoil guide, please order the additional part, Guide Wire & Spring Retainer (PN 55315). This extra part, along with the Cover Release Button will replace your telescopic tubular type recoil spring assembly.

Not great for the MAK 90
1 out of 5
Location: Pittsburgh PA

Tries to fit the GenIII mount several times and still could not get the hinge pin from popping up ever so slightly which throws off my Eotech. The Gen II looks to be a better choice because the removable hinge pin is absent. I have the hinge point zip tied down and now it is rock solid but who wants a zip tie on their AK?!! So don't lose your money and be unsatisfied, go with the Gen II .......I wished I did

I have a MAK 90 and the mount itself is awesome and rock solid it does not work very well with the Gen 3 version. The pivot point in front of the trunnion will move up and down with recoil which throws off point of aim on my Eotech. I ordered from Texas weapons system a new nut mount plate and still to no avail same thing. The only thing that truly works is a black zip tie to force down the movement and then the sucker is like it's welded on.......zero movement, but obviously who wants a zip tie on their rifle. The rail can still pop off with the push of the quick release button to be cleaned and out back on without losing zero but if you remove the zip tie to do this you will have to re zero the rifle. The Gen2 looks like a better option due to one less pivot point. I wished I would of gone with that option but I am stuck with the zip tie Gen3 and kinda out of my cash .Other than the zip tie issue, the mount is well made, easy to install and perfect for mounting a scope or red dot .......like I said before go with the gen 2 if you have a MAK 90

Perfect on my Polish Tantal
5 out of 5
Location: France

Perfect kit with clear instruction sheet. Each part fits very well on my rifle. At the end, disassembling scope and cover for complete clean then reassembly proved to be very repetitive on target, approx 4" @ 200 meters, which was quite unexpected for me. I plan to use the TWS cover for IPSC-Rifle, so only time will prove the system to be strong and repeatable enough for my use. Regarding the use on TANTAL, the locking button / spring rod supplied in the kit is a little shorter than the Polish original. The recoil spring is therefore "pre-compressed" at locked bolt position. That might be a cycling problem to those using a very light plinking load.

First off, I have to commend mountsplus for their great communication and fast shipping. I've seen mixed reviews on this product about holding zero, mainly on the gen 2s and older models. I've been running this mount hard with lots of rounds down the pipe of my rifle with it and multiple cleanings that have required removal of the mount, and I have yet to have any zero shift while running a Trijicon MRO red dot on top. Granted, I'm not using a magnified optic nor am I shooting paper. I mainly shoot 4" steel plates and smaller silhouette plates at 100 and beyond, and the rifle and mount have yet to fail me. As far as installation goes, the hardest part is getting your factory sight leaf and spring out. Installing the top cover is a breeze. Great product. Would not hesitate to put this on another rifle.

I love the quality and design of this updated version of the rail, and the quick detach characteristics make tear down extremely easy. I stand behind the mountsplus AK mount!

This is an awesome railed top cover. Was very skeptical at first after watching ak operators union. Ordered some other railed top covers and this one is the best by far. Not a fan of the small gap by the gas block but other than that works great. Holes zero very well even after taking it off for cleaning. Mounted an eotech 512 on this baby. I originally ordered the wrong system but emailed these guys and they called me within 5 mins. Gave me an Rma and I shipped it back that day. True to their word they turned around and mailed me the right one for an arsenal slr104! Part #33310 for the SLRs by the way! Highly recommend these guys! Bought a ME railed top cover from legion USA for another build because it utilized and retained the rear sight. To be honest it looks like a 8yrd old whittled it with a pen knife! Oh and the rear sight works like crap! So if I have any bit of advance to give. Use the TWS dog leg! Ten times better!
