Over all, very excellent set of sights for the AK. Certainly anything you throw on it will be an improvement over the standard comm bloc sights. I've ...

Nice (looking), but totally useless...

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 2, 2014
I bought this set before thoroughly reviewing other users comments. After purchase (but before receipt of the item) I read that about half the users were satisfied to very pleased; the other half found out as I did the front post was worthless. I did verify this set was designed for use with my style (Romanian) of AK-47 before ordering. Installation was straight forward and quick. Unfortunately it was nearly two months after I installed the sights before I was able to fire the weapon (intending to get the zero back). After the first round I could not see the front dot any longerthe front sight twisted literally sideways. I tried several remedies to get the front site to hold including pipe-tape, but short of trying to bend the threading apart (the thread post is split at the bottom), but no joy. At the end of the day this nice "looking" set is repackaged (like new) and sitting in my parts bin, likely never to see the light of day again. My original sights are back in place.
Pros: Quick, easy installation
Cons: Front post twists and turns, will not remain in place....
Would recommend: No

Great upgrade for your AK!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 31, 2013
Really nice sight set...as one person mentioned, the front post must make a complete turn to keep the "dot" facing the correct direction. On my rifle, (WASR 10/63) this made about 3.75 inches difference in impact point. I made the graduations work by filling the front post a small amount. Don't forget the non permanent lock tite on the front post as well
Pros: Much better than stock, glows brightly, well made
Cons: Take a bit of work to make range marks accurate...

A must buy for your AK!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 29, 2013
Fantastic upgrade for your AK..Takes about 10 min. to install. Remember to use non permanent lock tite on the front sight, or as others have mentioned, it wont stay put. After they were installed on my rifle, shots hit 2" low on 100 yard setting but nice groups...good sight picture.
Pros: Much better than originals, rear sight adjustment (L/R)
Cons: Price...
Would recommend: Yes

Best sight set for the AK

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 24, 2013
Fantastic sight set...much better than stock. Front sight is wider than original and requires thread locker to keep in place. Well worth the money!
Pros: Very bright and well made
Cons: None...

Meprolight AK-47 Sights

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 1, 2012
I really like these sights, with the exception that the fron sight spins during shooting. Added loctite and seemed better, but not great. Overall a great item though.
Pros: Great for low light
Cons: Front sight spins with recoil / needed loctite...

Awesome sights!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on March 9, 2012
These sights are great. Not only do they provide a great sight picture in low-light conditions, they also help me acquire my sights quicker in standard light conditions. Overall this was probably the coolest and most useful modification I've made to a rifle.
Pros: Overall sight enhancement...

Great addition to your AK

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 28, 2011
I put this set on an older CIA model rifle and a Draco pistol. The front sight installation is a breeze. Once you figure out how to manipulate the rear spring, the rear sight pops right in place. They provide great low light target acquisition. ...
