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.
