Does anybody know how well this fits on a SAIGA12? Offset or lies center? Anybody have pics of one mounted on a Saiga12 with an Eotech mounted? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just ordered one of these mounts for my second .308 Vepr. I like the lightweight and use of the ADM clamp. Already have the scope, I'll measure up some rings as soon as Midway delivers my mount later this week.

Will you guys be making one that has a shorter rail so you could actually use it with a Krinkov? Some optics don't need that much rail, so it could be beneficial. Just a though.

Is there any plans to make the rail slightly longer to reach closer to the rear sight? It seems like wasted space to not do this to me and I'd like to have that space just incase I need more eye relief.

got mine in, and it fits perfect! I have a M+M M10, and it's pretty much centered over the bore. The instructions walk you thru tightening the lever adjustment so the mount doesn't move. I find it easier to clean the gun by removing the mount/scope, but have done so several times and can't tell that I've lost my zero. Nicely played Troy!

I really like my mount! I know I have a lot of wasted space but I'm saving it for other options in the future. Great all around rail option.

Thanks

Big thumbs up with your mounts.







They are the best, hands down!

Great mount for the Saiga 12. Very low and perfectly centered.

Can the white letters be removed?

Here is the Midwest Industries scope mount I am very interested in:

MI-AK30SM

I am just wondering if it will fit the side rails of a Yugo Zastava M70 O-PAP

I just bought one of these. It is extremely solid and sturdy. The problem is that I cannot get nearly enough eye relief with a Steiner 1-4x on it. Even with a US length buttstock and a pad on it.

With which optics was the mount set up to work well in that regard?

Thanks,

I would also like to hear what optics work with this mount.

Could the railed version be modified to accept an Acog without a separate mount?

I don't mean another version. I just want to know if it would be as easy as just drilling the holes to directly mount an Acog. I guess it would work as long as there was enough clearance for the head of the bolt under the rail.

Got mine and really like it. Running it on a Saiga 308 with Weaver Tactical "high" rings and a Bushnell AR223 1-4x24. I could probably use the medium rings with some of the other 1-4 but the Bushnell is a 30mm tube and the back half is a bit larger than some others. On mine it doesn't sit centered but it is straight. It is a bit too far right (looking from the backside). Only wish it had about 2 more slots in the front of the rail to get a little better eye relief, but it is acceptable as is. May have to get something different that will set centered on my gun. Not MI fault IMO. I think it's just and issue with a com-block type gun.

I mounted the Midwest MI-AK30SM mount on my Zastava (Yugo) O-PAP, but because this rifle comes with an SVD style side rail, the Midwest mount did need a little material filed off the inside edge of the mount.

Very happy with it, and the little mod I needed to do was super easy.







Here is the gun with a DPH Arms 'skeleton stock' and the Midwest Industries mount / Weaver scope:

I'm very disappointed overall with this rail and single 30mm mount.
I've tried 4 different ones and end up keeping one and even that one I had to fabricate somewhat and it's not properly centered.
All of them are incorrectly centered on Saiga's (all sit to the right not center).
All of them rub on the dustcover from being offset to much to the right , (the one I kept I had to remove enough metal from rubbing against the dust cover).
Latest one had rusted (single) spring as well.

Good idea, great height (or excellent low profile). poor final production measurements of mounts.
Saigas are probably the biggest AK market and I'm surprised how a company based a mount of some WASR or whatever and not tested any on Saigas.

Has anyone tried this scope mount on a SAR1.
I like how low it sits.
I was going to try a kvar, but I think i like this better.
thanks

It might work, after all it was probably made using Romanian AK specs.
The only AK's this won't fit properly is Saiga or Russian made.
None of the 7 Saigas I own these fit properly.
