I was cleaning my Romanaian 5.45x39 MKII, its rear sight leaf is marked P 1-10, I beleive this to be correct for AK-74 types.............then I started to clean my Romanian SAR-1, it to had a rear sight leaf marked P 1-10, I thought AKM types had sights marked only 1-8...........Am I seeing things?
:goof:

The AK47 was 1-8, the AKM switched to 1-10.

Romy AKMS were 1-10's and they never made a milled AK-47 that would have used a 1-8 leaf.

A few "AKM" rifles did used a 800 meter leaf. The East German rifles, Hungarian AMD-65 and the Chinese rifles still used a 800 meter leaf.
