With the increasing number of manufacturers making aftermarket scope mounts and rail systems for the AK platform, it has never been easier to install a stable optic or sight on your favorite rifle. Most scope-mounting systems these days are also designed to ensure your optic, magnified or not, will hold its zero. Today’s forward-mounted rails are ideal for red-dot and holographic sights, which can be combined with magnifiers to offer greater long-range accuracy. So, without further ado, here are some new and exciting AK optics and sights to help you get on target faster, whether it’s for some added fun on the range or a critical home-defense scenario.
