AK 47 Side Mount

by Jim Bob, from United States, AZ Written on November 3, 2014
This side rail mount is sturdy and well made, however, it will not just slide onto a Zastava N-PAP without a little gunsmithing beforehand. The side rail on the N PAP seems to be a little different than most AK 47 variants. To get this mount to work on this rifle, a little piece on the end of mount needs to be trimmed away.
This is easily achieved with the use of a Dremel tool's cutting wheel. There is least one video on YouTube on how to do this simple procedure. Go slow; take you time and and you will be satisfied with the end product.
I knocked off one star for the 15 minute or so of tooling I spent....

AK scope mount Leapers MNT 978

by Mike, from United States, TX Written on October 30, 2014
This is a well made unit but unfortunately for me it would not fit my new AK--never would tighten down. I called Leapers and they were helpful but basically, there are so many AK variants, this won't fit them all. It is a shame, because the unit itself is very well made....

Leapers 5th Gen Quick Detachable Double-Rail AK Side Mount MNT-978

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 20, 2013
I am so glad I got this Leapers AK Side Mount MNT-978. It was so easy to mount right out of the box and works perfectly every time I take it off and put it back on. It also looks awesome on the rifle and is so durable and well constructed.
Pros: Highly recommend, extremely durable and strong. Right out of the box it went right into place perfectly with NO adjustments. I checked the internet and YouTube. This side mount was the best one and was perfect in every way possible.
Cons: There are none. ...

AK-47 side rail mount

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 1, 2013
I like this side rail because it allows me to use my scope or dot sight, and at the same time attach a taicle flashlight to the side. This leaves my front bottom rail ope for a grip or bipod.
Pros: Slips on in a second...

Hopeful

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 8, 2013
Product looks great and well made. In following the directions it states that after you slide the AK side mount on you are to tighten the unit by hand. There is no way that the one I received could be hand tightened. I simulated hand tightening with a screw driver but the side mount was lose. So I tried to tighten it down with the screw driver and was only able to turn the screw a fraction of an inch. It seemed to be tight but I was leery of the mount being able to hold the optics on without flying off when I shot my SAR-1. I called Opticsplanet and they gave me the number to the manufacturer to talk to them directly about the problem. I talked to one of their engineers and he asked me to send the product to them to inspect it. He stated that if there was a problem they need to fix it. I sent it in two weeks ago and I am still waiting to hear from them. I am hoping that they are able to determine what the problem is because I really want to add this on to my AK. I think it will be a big asset to my being able to shoot much better with an added optics because my eyes are so bad that the iron sights are blurry to me. I will add to this post once I get the side mount back.
Pros: First rate machining
Cons: Hard to tighten...

Leapers 5th Gen Quick Detachable Double-Rail AK Side Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 18, 2012
Put this on my Romanian WASR 10/63. Installs in seconds. Mounted a light,
laser sight and on red dot sight. Sighted both in and then shot a few 20 round boxes. Laser and Red Dot never
moved. Haven't tried removing it and putting back on to see if it resets to
zero, but as solid as it is, I believe it will.

Pros: Easy to set up and use
Cons: None that I can think of...

Best Quick-Attach Adaptor

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on January 8, 2012
This device is extraordinary! It slides on and locks - period. No matter how many rounds I fire, my optics stay zeroed. The 2nd rail is a hi-value add. This adaptor is a must have for AK owners.
Pros: Simple, Solid, Reliable, Handy...
