Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Thumbs up Scoping the AK..a couple ways to do it. Side mts & top covers

I ordered these from Kalinka Optics Warehouse, in Coral Springs Florida...just a couple days ago.. And got them today. It is their BP-02 model of Mil-Spec scope mount.

They are a mil-spec, made in Belarus, centered over the bore, LOW, picatinny railed, scope mount that fits the optical mounting plate/scope side rail bracket on all Russian, Bulgarian, Romanian AK's, etc. (Note* AK's ONLY. The SVD style found on other com-Bloc rifles is different)

These are VERY well made and worth every cent of their $50.00 purchase price. I have had and used these before and used to sell the earlier "offset slightly to the left, in the Russian style, scope mounts.

Kalinka is a good seller and ships stuff out lightning fast! Just the way we like it. They list a ton ...of cool shit on their website: http://kalinkaoptics.com/











If you do not want cheap junk...this is one for you.

I will have more pics of it mounted on various AKM's.

I have the original Soviet BP-02 side mount.
This one looks interesting.

Probably the same plant that made it in Soviet times.

I have mounted these mounts on two different AKM's and the gap between the top cover and the scope, directly beneath the scope rail is about 1/8". CLOSE...just the we we like it and dead center over the bore.

Default The quick, easy and mil-spec AKM scope mount

My rail is on a thin breach cover & not centered very well. I would love one of these. I went to the link & I can't seem to figure out the mount. Do you need a dove tail on the side of the rifle to mount this. My AK has no side mounts like the sks.

Yes, You would need a scope side rail bracket mounted on the Left side of the receiver. It is possible to retrofit one...depending upon: What kind of AK/who built it? Fixed stock? Under folder?

You might could use one of these... http://www.texasweaponsystems.com/id1.html

They are of very high quality, will maintain a close zero... after being opened and closed... and allow a decent piece of glass to be mounted to your AK.

If you are using one of those top cover mounts...there are better ways these days... Quality does not come at a hot dog's price though...

Default Good Tip

The mount in the last link looks very robust. I little pricey, but you get what you pay for. I will let you know how it works out.

I bought that exact same mount from Kalinka last year & put it on my Saiga/Arsenal SGL31 AK-74. Very sturdy & robust it is: a tad on the heavy side but it looks like it can take a lickin & keep on tickin. The quick release feature is nice, too. My previous optical mount was secured w/ 3 Allen screws...not so "quick".

I have looked at the mounts with "set screw" attachment. I do not care for anything that requires me to carry "extra" tools, in the field. Tools can get lost...There is JUST enough room to R&R the top cover without pulling the mount off the rail. However. The consensus is that the THIS type of mount can be removed and re-installed with minimum, to none, change of zero. Ridged, is a good thing with scope mts.

Have you tried it on a Saiga 308?
I can see no reason it would be different than other AK's

Kalinka lists the Saiga in the info for that mount.

They sell the side rails too, if you need to add one to a AK.
http://kalinkaoptics.com/firearm-acc...ide-rails.html

I've ordered from Kalinka several times, always had very good service.

Nice job Dinky,


Sure wish I could find the ultra rare side plates for underfolders but from what I have dug up only one repro was made and not many of them and they require a modification of the folding stock on the left side.I guess the only option for an underfolder is a dust cover mount with those crappy set screws(which I don't care for) or gas tube rail.
