View Full Version : Not all AK side rails are the same.

So far I've had nothing but Saigas and the UTG quick detach side rail has been great for me. Recently I picked up an M10-762. Just for fun, I tried putting my scope and rail from my Saiga onto the M10.

On the Saiga, the UTG rail sits quite low close the the top cover but on the M10 it sits way high. WTF?:confused: Aren't all AKs pretty much the same? Guess not.

It seems that the rail on the side of the receiver sits higher on the receiver of the M10 than it does on the Saiga. Now I'm looking for a side rail mount that will sit lower. The new Midwest Industries side rail has caught my eye but I'm not sure how low it sits. Does anyone know? Also would any of the Molot mounts for the Vepr work as well?

TWS rail or the MI Side-mount rail.
