Just about finished with the refinishing job on my 65 and I have been thinking about putting a scope on it. Does anyone know of or have and good recomendation on how and what to do to acomplish this? I have a few different ideas but a few more couldn't hurt! Has anyone tried the tri-rail on the top cover?

+1 BTDT, receiver cover mount is gay. If the wobbling doesnt get you, the removal for cleaning will affect your zero.

B-square has a pretty decent platform (at least it appears to be) I have not used one but have seen them in person, lil sticker shock at around $70.00 but maybe a gunshow would have a better deal.

No offense, but a scope on a 65 is just retard, I have yet to find a good check weld.

Please enlighten me on why a scope on a 65 would be retarded, I actually think it is going to be pretty cool if I can ever find a good mounting system that someone has IN STOCK. One good reason for having scope is picking off Idiots from a longer distance if you know what I mean! Thanks for your opinion tho! Does anyone else think that it would be a retarded idea to put a scope on a 65.

1. Practice with your irons.

2. Get a PK-A series or Kobra if you must have an optic.

Sorry to be blunt and not provide a reason why.


If you ever worked with flat top M4s/Ars with optics, then you have experience a usable cheek weld. Will some complain the M4 with telestock leaves much to be desired in the way of a good cheek weld, it is still usable.

The AMD-65 has the wire stock that sits way to low to provide any cheek weld. Basically, you have to float your head to look down the sights.

I believe gun was primarily meant for tanker use and its function was to offer some scary supression fire.

I have one along side of me right now and after thinking about it and examining it, the rear sight is useless. Without a cheek weld you are never going to get consistant sight allignment or picture.

Therefore, I would probably only use the front sight for quick shots. You could use the front & rear sights for longer distance shots provided you had time to aim.

In light of these thoughts, you optic idea might not be all that bad. Some thing like a reflex or EO Tech allow for a wide open look with a pointer/retical on one lense.

I think a traditional scope would be a nightmare. You have to allign your eye through the scope and maintain eye-to-scope distance /relief. Without a proper stock and cheek weld, it is useless & inconsistant.

I only thing I would consider using my AMD -65 for would be a vehicle gun because it is extremely short with the stock folded. But in that situation, I wouldn't bulk it up with optics or anything else.

My M4 is only 5 to 6" longer with stock colapsed compared to the AMD-65 stock folded.

FYI my AMD-65 & M4 are a little over 16" bbl with the permanent attchments acounted for.

Going back to the vehicle case, it would probably still be easier to deploy my sidearm, then get the M4 if I had to.

The stock folded AMD65 would be a spray and pray. Unfolding the stock isn't quick and graceful either. With the m4 stock is extended with ease uber quickly.

Puttin a scope on an AMD-65 is like putting a telestock on a Garand.


You just don`t do that.

If you need to scope an AK get a Dragonov or a PSL
