Any help would be appreciated?? I've seen the Ultimak rail scout mount method are there any other options??

Anyone have a setup they really like...I'm wondering because if I were using my rifle pig hunting I'd really like the cowitness option incase of battery failure...Thanks in advance!

no way to co witness an eotech on a ak. Best value right now and features is the tws rail. Has a built in backup peep sight and extendes the sight radius almost 12 inches. A regular aimpoint in a low ring will make a cowitness possible.

One time where your optics could be more than your gun

Impossible to cowitness an EOTech unless you mount it in front of the gas tube or behind the receiver.

An aimpoint on a ultimak is still the best set-up. The beryl-style rails are still higher than the ultimaks - the "cowitness" is so low it's tough to get a proper sight picture.

Seen the prices on AKs lately?

I've more than a few times spent more on optics than rifles - and the rifles weren't cheap, either.

Ultimak or railed upper handguard is the way to go for co-witness. An aimpoint micro or a clone with similar size sitting on top of the rail would give co-witness. You can still have full functional iron sights through the scope.

I have seen the prices on an "AK"

This is a Saiga, no rip on Mcgraw, this is just at ucla plinker. Even a crap wasr is about the same as a high end eotech. Just thought it was ironic.

Oh I get it!

It wasn't too long ago that $150 could get you an AK kit, receiver, compliance parts and rivets. Now - you're lucky to get it for 3X that.

Sounds like an Aimpoint is the answer...best place to get one on the cheep??? Yes I know CHEEP is mabye not the best word. No intrest in the knock-offs...

As far as putting more into the mount and sight than the rifle is worth I really think that these Saigas represent a great value to me personally and love mine 100 times more than my mini-30 which cost quite a bit more. Got my Saiga under $385 brand new in-case your wondering.
