AK-47 Ultimak Gas Tube Optic Mount
With the increasing popularity of the AK based rifle, the need for a handy, light, and reliable sighting system has resulted in the UltiMAK optic mount. Its Picatinny style rail is positioned well below the iron sight axis, making this the lowest optic mount available for the AK. The system allows for co-witnessing when used with a tubular reflex sight. This heavy duty mount replaces the original steel gas tube and upper handguard, so it adds less than one ounce to the weight of the rifle.
Using this item with AK Galil Style Handguard:Will work with Saiga
The AK Galil Style Handguard can be modified to be used in conjunction with the Ultimak AK Gas Tube. Due to clearance issues, approximately 1 inch of each side of the handguard should be cut then filed smooth. This will allow room for the Ultimak's rail to accept optics.
Will fit the Saiga 7.62 x 39 and smaller bore rifles. The Saiga handguard must be either a) significantly modified to accommodate the M-1B optic mount, or b) replaced with the ACR2, which is of course fully compatible with all UltiMAK AK optic mounts.
