    Thank You. The post on these rails really helps with understanding the timeline. Do you think there were production quantities of rifles produced with the AK rail 2?

    Do you know if there were ever any Type II AK47 rifles produced with an optical rail?

    Other than screw and pin placement, are there other differences in AK rail 3 and RPK rail 14?

    I used an RPK 14 rail to fabricate a 1961 AKMN Rifle. How bad off is that?
