I just bought a SAR 1 with detachable scope mount. While SAR 1 is romanian, mount had sticker on it that said made in Belarus. This is new rifle and mount was a "factory job" as much as anything can be these days with parts made one place and assembied in another place. On side of rifle is attached bracket about half inch wide and four inches long. Mount has slot that goes on bracket and a lever to lock in place. Is a rail screwed to top of mount, which will take weaver rings. It looks crude but sturdy and you can see iron sights with mount in place. Has anyone had experience with this set up and have any tips to offer? I am thinking of getting a short length, low powered scope, but would like specific suggestions. Thanks for any info or ideas.

Bill,

I have an AK in my safe that I am planning to "modernize" for a CQB weapon. I have a couple of things in mind. Knowing the AK is not a sniper weapon, I am leaning toward the Trijicon reflex Sight. I am planning to get a top cover with weaver-like rail on it for mounting. The biggest issue with mounts is that most of them are wayyyy too high. The closer the optic is to the line of sight, the better.

I really strongly recommend the Ultimak forward mount over the dust cover rails. I tried several dust cover mounts, and never found on that returned at all closely to zero when removed for cleaning and replaced. I suppose I didn't have to clean my SLR95, but I have a psychological need to keep my weapons respectfully tidy. Maybe there has been an improvement in dust cover mounts since I tried them, but I know several happy Ultimak users.

I had a Tasco Propoint on an ultimak, and liked it quite a lot. It mounted the sight low enough that I could use the iron sights through it.

The Kobra "red dot" type sight is excellent and not that expensive.

The AK may not be a tack driver, but I don't want to be on the receiving end of one.
