Looks good, nice looking wood on handguard and stock too. Is the pistol grip a replacement or custom?

Okay, please educate an AK newbie. What is a Kobra and why should we be all hot and bothered?

desertmedic

The Kobra is the red dot. And ya dont have to be hot and bothered by it. Ill accept warm and saucy... :yes:

Okay, now I get it. "As used by the Russian Military..." So it's a Russkie Eotech.

Ball peen hammer... did you happen to watch that movie called Thursday from the 90's that had Aaron Eckhart and that hottie czech model (who has a nude/topless appearance) in it?

That's a cool red dot, I've thought about getting one, but most likely if I get another red dot it'll be another Aimpoint.

Man, that's more expensive than a cheaper EOTech. How does it compare to one?

desertmedic
07-16-2012, 3:30 PM
Cali - Never saw it.. Ill have to check it out.

Nick - Different then an EOTech. I have an XPS 2-0 on my AR and sight acquisition seems to be as fast. Just a little different sight plane. The reticle sits way above the AK's front post, unlike the AR where I have the center dot right on top of the front post. On the Kobra I like the dot/chevron sight picture best so far.

So does it co-witness with the AK? Where does the dot sit? Can you still use the irons? At 70 hours for 1 CR123 battery what made you choose this over an aimpoint?

desertmedic
07-16-2012, 8:44 PM
Lone - Call me silly, but I just wanted to keep it looking "Russian." It doesnt use a CR123 battery. Instead it uses a CR2 battery.

The reticle above the front post. Yeah, it would appear that the post is a bit canted but its dead on with irons!

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/ac326/sq51ad/e1070103.jpg

No way in hell you can use the irons without first removing the optic..

Sorry for the grianiness of the first pic. It was zoomed in all the way on the ole iPhone...

Nice. They've gotten kinda pricey haven't they? I remember picking mine up for $150ish a couple of years back.

Lone- its all about using a Russian optic on a "Russian" rifle.
Plus it looks cool as hell!
