Accessories for AK-Pattern Rifles

posted on February 25, 2020

A. Compatible with most AK variants containing a side-mounted receiver/scope-rail interface, the GG&G AK Scope Mount features a rail slightly longer than 6 inches for optics and laser-aiming devices. Manufactured from heat-treated 4140 steel, the AK-ucam QD System is fully adjustable to successfully interface with a worn or out-of-spec AK-47 side rail and is proven to deliver ½-MOA or less return-to-zero capability. A serrated lever on the bottom finger pad provides ample purchase to unlock. MSRP: $151.72;

B. Combat-proven and used by military and law enforcement agencies worldwide, Meprolight ML33115 Self-Illuminated Night Sights for AK-47 Rifles contain the brightest tritium lamps available, making them a practical upgrade for those who want to configure their AK/AKM rifles for use under low-light conditions. Fine-line serrations on the rear blade surface help cut glare in bright conditions. The tangent rear assembly also sports click adjustments for windage as well as standard-issue, 100-meter distance graduations for elevation out to 1,000 meters. MSRP: $149.60 (set);

C. Possessing a shorter pull and crisper reset than other offerings in its AKT line makes the ALG Defense AK Trigger Ultimate with Lightning Bow (AKT-UL) an ideal means of achieving greater precision from your rifle. A lightning bow contributes to a much more comfortable-feeling trigger compared to stock variants. Compatible with AK-47/74 platforms, the AKT-UL counts as three parts toward U.S. 922(r) compliance. MSRP: $90;

D. Designed for most AK-47/74-pattern variants with stamped receivers and a fixed, single-tang trunnion, the Magpul MOE AK Stock shares the same wedge-block design of the company’s popular Zhukov-S stock while offering other innovative features such as an internal storage compartment, QD sling swivel placement, a shock-absorbing buttpad and optional snap-on cheek risers (sold separately) for use with optics. Best of all, it’s available in three colors and counts as one part for U.S. 922(r) compliance. MSRP: $59.95;

E. Featuring a body constructed from impact-resistant polycarbonate for added durability and minimal weight, the ProMag Industries AK-47 7.62x39mm (30) Rd - Smoke Polymer Magazine fits most variants of the Kalashnikov. A semi-translucent polymer body allows users to identify the type of ammo on hand, and readiness on the fly, while waffle patterning along the exterior provides purchase and aesthetic appeal. Inside, the spring is comprised of heat-treated chrome-silicon wire for added durability and topped with an injection-molded follower. MSRP: $18.99;
