    Correct side rail for 1992 polish AKM

    I'm in the process of building 1992 polish fixed stock AKM. i Want to outfit it with the rail. I want to know what would be correct polish side rail for this rifle/model year.
    If anyone cam direct me to reference material i would appreciate it.
    Also maybe point me towards where the said rail can be purchased.

    I know AoA has some rails. not sure if correct for 1992 gun. also they are kinda shorter odd looking than bulgy, russian and romanian stuff, so i'm not super enthused about those.

    This is pure speculation, but I think it’s possible that there is no correct rail for a ‘92 Polish AKM because I doubt they were making the AKMŁ rifles later than the mid-80s. Tantals were made with rails but those were very special-purpose, and there were already enough AKMŁ and AKMSŁ rifles in their inventory.

    Obviously any optics rail with an AKM rivet pattern will work, but to my knowledge there has never been a one-piece Polish rail for stamped receivers.

    If “correctness” isn’t a concern, then any Romanian scope rail (or a copy) will work fine.

    If Nothing is truly correct for a 92 Polish AKM, then go for functionality with what ever scope mount/scope you are going to use
