AK Master Mount AK47 Midwest Industries rail Railed Scope Mount RS Regulate

RS Regulate and AK Master Mount Rail are Inbound to Me!

So I received and installed the bunch of AK47 goodies mentioned when I last posted.

Several things worth mentioning:

1.  The AK Master Mount fit perfectly onto the AMD-63 but one of the screw heads is too big, so I can’t tighten it down flush.  It will require either some grinding on the trigger guard guide or the screw head to lessen the diameter of the head.  This is not a problem with the product but with my firearm (that trigger guard may be non-standard AK equipment…not sure yet).

2.  The railed scope mount is difficult to adjust.  It took me 20 minutes just to ensure I wasn’t breaking the throw lever (never mind that there were several threats within the included documentation that if you broke it while adjusting it, you wouldn’t be eligible for a refund…that’s not confidence-inspiring to read nor does it inspire confidence in the product).

3.  The railed scope mount is probably not the proper product for use with a RDS.  I mounted my two RDS’s and they were not able to cowitness because the scopes were mounted too high.  The rail is too high-profile.  I need something lower profile so that I can cowitness properly.  As it is now, the dots are as low as they can be adjusted and they’re still too high over the front sight post.

I thought about returning the railed scope mount but I may be able to use it with other scopes that don’t require co-witness (ie, high power magnification scopes), so I’m going to keep it.  As well, the adjustments I made to the mount and the mounting process has shaved some metal from the lever catch…I can see Midwest, with all that threatening in the documentation, making a fuss over that, never mind the instructions not being for the proper product.

I’ve ordered a better mount for my needs, from RS Regulate:

Lower rail mount

Upper rail mount

Joined products:

They should ship tomorrow (Monday).  Hopefully, I’ll have them by the end of the week.

Next Batch of AK47 Goodies on the way!

I reported awhile back that I bought the Butler Creek ASAP Universal Magazine Loader for the AK47 and the Magna-Matic Defense Front Sight Adjustment Tool.

I’ve been using them both without issue.  The sight adjustment tool did leave scratches and gouge marks all over the front sight, though.

My next batch of AK items are on the way:

I ordered the former from Amazon and the latter from AK Operator’s Union.

The former will arrive tomorrow and the latter will arrive the day after.  Friday or Saturday, I’ll be visiting the range to sight in the new Sig Sauer Romeo 5 2-MOA RDS that I bought during Black Friday sales events.

I’ll post up when I’ve installed and used these items.
