    Side Rail Mounts

    Did Romania ever use side rail optic mounts in their m63 and m65s? Iíve never gotten one in any of the parts kits I ordered. Iíve seen them on Sar-1 & WASR rifles, but nothing else.

    In 12 or so years of photo searching I have yet to see a Romanian M63 rail in the field. A rail would not work on an MD65 without mods to the stock.

    The importers of the SAR and WASR rifles specified the rail at the time of order.

    We've got a hell of a lot more in common with the fellow citizens we're being trained to hate than the puppetmasters training us to hate them.

    MD-86 has the rails, but still no optics were issued.
    Even today, no AK variant in Romania has any optics attached.
    The only exception is the PSL since it is not a Dragunov design but a beefed up AK.

    They do have a bunch of Western design weapons, including M4, HK, Steyr which hae optics attached to them.

    All AK variants are being used strictly with iron sights.

    There is the magic mount option. I have one but have never used it so I can not attest to how it works but it requires no permanent modifications.
