The AK Master Mount™ optic mount is a unique and purpose built product for serious AK users. It is for the standard pattern AK side rail, and it’s built as rugged as the AK rifle itself. Three beefy struts support its “2 in 1” top rail design that can accommodate optics with either a picatinny base or an ACOG base.
The optic mount’s low profile hugs the side of the AK receiver and the dust cover to deliver a low axis over bore placement. It has a heavy-duty lever that is fully inset into the body of the optic mount to protect it from snags.
The Dual Axis Locking feature maintains optic zero by preventing any movement on the AK’s side rail during sustained shooting. It is true quick release, and it easily adjusts to different width AK side rails. The finish is black hardcoat (type III) anodizing. Mount was machined from a solid block of 6061 aluminum to achieve superior strength, but yet be weight conscious
AK optic mounts secure to an AK receiver’s side rail by one of two main methods. The first method uses a rotating lever that has a contoured portion to rotate and lock into a corresponding cut-out in the side rail. Many of the traditional com-bloc optic mounts utilized this design and are broadly referred to as SVD styled mounts. This method is primarily securing the optic mount in the horizontal axis.
The second method utilizes a rotating lever to deform the bottom part of the mount to “crimp” onto the side rail. These mounts are not really quick release despite their labeling as such, and this mount deformation makes it difficult to resize the mount to a different side rail on a different rifle. The more modern approach to this method is to use the rotating lever to manipulate a spring loaded clamping bar to compress against the receiver’s side rail to make it quick release capable. These style mounts are prone to “walking” along the side rail with heavy shooting sessions as they only secure the optic mount in the vertical axis.
AK Master Mount combined these two techniques to firmly secure our optic mount to an AK’s side rail in both the vertical and horizontal axis to make it Dual Axis Locking. This secure attachment maintains optics zero even with sustained heavy shooting sessions. Clamping bar is also longer than the other optics mounts on the market to provide additional clamping surface contact, and we use two springs in the clamping bar mechanism for increased clamping bar stability and true quick release capability.

Forward-Biased Top Rail option shown:
The Forward-Biased option’s top Picatinny / ACOG rail is 3 &1/4 inches long. This version is for those AK users who like the optic placed further forward from their eye. It weighs 5.5 ounces.
This Gen 2 version has a steel insert at the end of its dovetail channel to provide additional strength. The handle is also upgraded to stronger 7075 aluminum. Now you get the best of both worlds: aluminum construction for weight reduction, but steel for strength where it’s needed.
