I think of it as a up close blaster, the sites aren't really that great or I am not that great of a shot with it or somewhere in between.

I was thinking about mounting some sort of red dot or CCO on it.

How can you do it without spending alot of cash?

i have heard maks are probably the least accurate aks?

No, you're quite right. I love my SAR, it's my little range bitch, but the sights on AKs are just about the worst sights I've ever seen. They're low, seperated, and disconnected from the shooter - very poorly designed. Also, accuracy is hit-or-miss (sometimes literally). I've hit things with my SAR that I don't think I could do with an AR-15... and I've also missed things with my AK that I think I could've hit with a Liberator pistol. Ammo is very inconsistent - sometimes you get that good batch of ammo that just lets you get 1" groups at 100 yards... Then you get noise-makers. It's just how it is.

Step 1: Buy Barnaul or Silver Bear.
Step 2: Get Red Star Arm's AK trigger.
Step 3: Think of a buying a replacement rear leaf sight. There are ghost ring sights available for, like, $35 or less.

THAT will help you tremendously. It did me.

I installed a G2 tapco trigger and noticed I shot better. Next time I shoot I will use silver bear and I will have a red-dot. See if I can do any better.

May build a ar15 piece by piece. Well all two pieces....that will be the accurate rifle

It's weird because I shoot better with my Mak than my AR-15 A2 with just wolf at least off hand I do but then again I shoot it more. Silver bear seems to be pretty accurate and I like those effect points they have.

You're not 'supposed to aim the thing....Dianne and Chuck say that they are just made for spraying bullets, didn't you know that? hehe
