1x-4x Power Short Dot on an AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAK!

I have a 5.56 Ak that I use as my goto Gun and I think I could get more out of it in the long run if it had a powered optic.

Has anybody tried this yet?

You're thinking of mounting a Short Dot on an AK?

Interesting - how would you go about mounting it? BTW, I personally think it's a waste, but do as you like.

I've been wanting to mount a Millet DMS 1-4x on the dust cover rail on my Kreb's KTR-03S, but I don't know how high it will need to be to clear the AR style rear sight. This red dot seems to be the hot setup for 3 gun competitions because of the 5-200 yard setup of my local club on most stages, bunch of the AR's are using it and it retails for just over $200. My EOTech work great but needs a little magnification sometimes.

I wonder if I could mount it just ahead of the rear sight to keep it low but still work with the eye relief?

Found some pics on the net:

IMHO a magnified optic greater than, say 1.5x can really be utilized much more effectively by an AR platform.

I think nearly all AK applications would be best served by a 1x red dot or at the most a 1.5x ACOG....

My AK has the mount on the side and I was thinking of using some mount with a pic base and mount a 1x-4x Nightforce to that.

LOL I had a Trijicon TA31 RCO mounted on my SLR-106 just for fun. Never shot it mounted though, it was way off set to the right. I used one of those low profile mounts made in Belarus. It looked way out of place....
