The AK Master Mount™ optic mounts are unique and purpose built products for serious AK users. They are built as rugged as the AK rifle itself. It is machined from solid 6061 aluminum and finished with black hardcoat (type III) anodizing for superior strength, but yet be weight conscious. Made in the USA.

The optic mount's one piece design keeps things simple and provides structural integrity. Its low profile hugs the side of the AK receiver and the dust cover to deliver a low axis over bore placement. It has a heavy-duty lever that is fully inset into the body of the optic mount to protect it from snags. It is true quick release, and it easily adjusts to different width AK side rails.

The Dual Axis Locking feature maintains optic zero by preventing any movement on the AK’s side rail during sustained shooting. Its robust struts support its “2 in 1” top rail design that can accommodate optics with either a picatinny base or an ACOG base without needing an adapter.

It comes in two main versions (1) AKM version which is for the "standard AK pattern" side rail (NOT a Yugo pattern factory side rail OR Century Arms™ proprietary version side rail, but will fit a Century Arms™ standard AK side rail). The AKM version optic mount comes in two styles: A "Rear Biased" top rail version and a "Full Length" top rail version. (2) YUGO version that fits the factory Yugo side rail and is only in a full length top rail version.

5 of 5 Absolutely the best March 2, 2022
Reviewer: Mark from Los Angeles, CA United States  
This Master Mount is also branded with Kalashnikov USA so I figured must be good. It’s sold out on other online sites. It’s really good looking and seems integrated “one with the rifle”.  Sits REALLY close to the dust cover, like one duct tape clearance.  Okay this is where we separate the men from the boys.  YOU GOTTA ADJUST THE TENSION SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY -ONE CLICK AT A TIME.  READ the instructions.  Took me a dozen times to get it perfect.  ONE CLICK Makes a huge difference. Once you nail it it is rock solid and just looks awesome with a low mount optic.   Thanks CSS!

3 of 5 Not 100% pleased December 1, 2021
Reviewer: Ward K. from Callaway, VA United States  
After watching the OEM Youtube video on installing this AK optic mount, I adjusted and installed the mount. It seemed a tight no wiggle fit.  I shot my AK 20 times trying to sight in a prismatic sight.  I discovered the recoil dislodged the tight fit to the rail on the receiver and the whole mount was wiggling.  I re-adjusted the scope mount fit and using a plastic hammer drove the scope mount back onto the receiver rail.  I have not since fired the rifle to learn if the scope mount comes loose again.  I probably could have accomplished the same fit with a $20 Chinese scope mount.  HOWEVER, maybe this scope mount fits the Master Mount rail better than the OEM Ishmash Saiga rail?  Nothing like spending another $70 for a Master Mount rail .... maybe Master Mount should sell the AK Optic Mount and Master Mount receiver rail as a properly priced kit?

Gives you a side rail without permanent modification, and pretty simple to install with very few tools!
