Which is better? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? I plan to use at most, a 2x, optic. I will most likely use a Trijicon Tri-Power (if they ever come out), Aimpoint 2x or Comp M2, Trijicon Reflex, or Kobra Red Dot.

unfartunately, you couldnt use an Ultimak with a magnified scope.
you could only use a red dot type scope on the Ultimak.
To use any scope with magnification, the eye relief is 1-2". so you will need an AK side rail.
The only problem ive heard with the Ultimaks is the heat from the barrel/gas system, making the sight hot as hell.

The M7S is the most versatile of the two choices. If you don't like the Ultimak mount then you have the option of using the existing rail mount.

Nicer optics do exist, but for the ballpark $130 for Kobra or PSO quality you will want the siderail option.

I'd also go with the M7S

I bought a SAM-7 and am going through the hassle of making it a 7S. Get the SAM-7S to begin with.

I must respectfully disagree with EX11B. The gas tube doesn't transfer all that much heat through an Ultimak to the sight/scope. At least it certainly doesn't on my Poly Legend. Odd, but true.

Any of the non-magnified red-dots will work with the Ultimak. The Aimpoint and clones work well as you can still see the iron sights through the tube, deleting the need for a quick-detach system.

Give any thought to a Scout Scope from Leupold? Long eye relief, 2.75X, reasonably priced, and tough as hell.

Good luck.
