My neighbor wants a red dot for his AK, but doesn't want to lay out the coin for an Aimpoint or an ACOG.

Could anyone offer any more wallet friendly options for an optic; primary usage would be hunting \ plinking.

One that would mount low enough on an Ultimak scout rail to enable co witnessing the irons would be a plus.

Re: Optics

Walmart sells a Chinese-made red dot for $25 or $30--I've seen exactly the same sight under several different names. I think mine might be marked BSA but they're all the same.

Mine's worked quite well for several years on my .22 AR. I don't know why it wouldn't work well on an AK for hunting/plinking. I doubt it'll co-witness with AK metallic sights, though. But for the price, you don't have much to lose.

Re: Optics

Thanks, I'm running a ML2 on mine and I can just co witness the irons with a low mount.

He doesn't want to put a lot of money in a utility gun until he knows if he's going to take to it or not.

I expect he will.

Larue has exactly what you're looking for...the AK Irondot.
