This is a side rail that is easily retrofitted to most milled or stamped AK styled receivers without the need to drill and rivet, or utilize a gunsmith. It attaches to the existing hammer and trigger holes by using the proprietary mounting pins. This is a low profile, reversible modification that allows the use of the many commercially available side rail optic mounts.
The rail can be placed in minutes and can later be removed if desired as no permanent modifications are done to the receiver. The side rail is rock solid and parallel to the barrel. The dovetail surface runs the entire surface of the rail to maximize the clamping surface area for optic mounts, unlike most factory / combloc styled side rails. This provides an even more “rock solid” base for the many commercially available optic mounts. The bonus of this design is that the internal shepherds crook retaining wire is no longer needed to secure the hammer and trigger assemblies.
