Texas Weapons Dog leg rail GEN 3 for YUGO AK47 #33312


Price: $179.95

Stock Status:


This model is specifically designed to fit the YUGO AK47. This is the newest TWS product - the GEN-3.

Scoped AK rifles require a very low mounted optic to maintain a proper cheek weld for consistent shooting. One only needs to observe the height of the standard iron sights to confirm this. Most scope mounts for the AK place the optics too high to maintain a proper cheek weld. This is done as a compromise solution to allow scope mounting while permitting top cover removal.
This unfortunate compromise forces the shooter to brace the buttstock along the jaw line or in some cases completely under the chin.

TWS solves this dilemma with the innovative new second generation Dog Leg™ Scope Rail with integral dust cover.
Incorporating a unique joggle shape behind the rear sight block the Dog Leg™ railed top cover provides the lowest possible MIL-STD-1913 mounting surface.
Field stripping capability is preserved with the quick release cam lock mechanism that precisely returns to zero, yet is so simple to operate.

The Dog Leg™ replaces the standard dust cover and easily installs with a single hinge pin to the rear sight block in place of the rear leaf sight.
The included cam lock release button replaces the standard release button and is installed to the return spring.

Fits most AK pattern rifles including stamped and milled receivers, as well as fixed, underfolder, and side folding stocks.
The adjustable front tab allows custom fitting to the user's individual weapon.

Easily installs in place of the rear leaf sight.

Kit Includes:
Dog Leg Rail Top Cover
Hinge Fork with takedown pin
Hinge base with screw
Nut Plate
Hinge Base pin & retaining clip
Cover release button
Allen wrench

Note: Some rifles need the additional part (Guidewire & retainer cap / 6") which works with the supplied Cover Release Button.

5 of 5 Excellent option April 25, 2024
Reviewer: Michael Harris from Butler, PA United States  
I am very impressed with the construction and it truly has held zero. Game changer. Side rails are cool until you realize you can't fold your stock.
If you're on the fence just do it. You won't be disappointed.
If you are using an oversized charging handle be sure it clears. Mine didn't and had to get out the Dremel.
Don't forget to buy the optional peep sight if backup irons are important to you. This product requires you to remove the rear sight and spring.

5 of 5 So Far So Good June 21, 2023
Reviewer: Evan from United States  
Quite simply, bought this for my M70 to mount an LPVO. So far it works fantastically. Holds zero; it's a solid platform. Only gripe so far is that it's a bit chunky, and is harder to unlock and open for field-stripping. Install was typical AK-fashion. Very Njaice.

5 of 5 Worth it December 17, 2022
Reviewer: Jesse B from Gravette, AR United States  
I zeroed my aimpoint t1 on this rail and shot 480rds out of a new M70 opening the top cover about 5 times to see if there was zero shift and had minimal impact change. In my opinion this is a better option than a side mounted rail

5 of 5 Buy with confidence! September 6, 2022
Reviewer: Sam Seefeldt from Milton, WI United States  
I have heard some negative things  about the TWS rails not holding zero or being fragile. I haven't had that experience and I've been told I'm hard on stuff. During installation I would obviously recommend using red Locktite. The only downside side I had was on my zastava m90 I run the gun on the lowest gas setting with the tws installed I did have to go to the second gas setting at first for reliable cycling. However most ak won't have this problem.

In the end if you want it buy it you won't regret it!

5 of 5 Fits the PAP M77 308 with Modification August 30, 2022
Reviewer: Frank from Rochester, MN United States  
Great rail that can be installed on Zastava's newly released (as of August 2022) PAP M77 rifle chambered in .308 Winchester/7.62X51 NATO. I had to grind down the thin ledge (tongue?) of the nut plate in order for the hinge base to properly seat, thus permitting the hinge base pin to fit through the pin hole in front sight base.
