The AK Master Mount™ scope rail is the only commercially available product that delivers a reliable side rail attachment point without permanent modification to the AK’s receiver and allows use of the many commercially available side rail optic mounts. Our side rail quickly attaches to milled or stamped AK receiver’s existing hammer and trigger axis pin holes with our proprietary mounting pins. The bonus of this design is that the internal shepherds crook retaining wire is no longer needed to secure the hammer and trigger assemblies. This is the latest Gen 3 version that is still made of steel, but 50% lighter by trimming away unneeded metal. It has improved aesthetics and is compatible with triangle folding stocks. NO drilling, NO tapping, NO riveting, and NO gunsmithing required.
