I have a National Match Polytech AK47 with a milled receiver and 20" heavy barrel.

On the left side of the receiver there is a piece of metal that is almost rectangular, 1 1/2" long with one side 1/2" wide and the other side 1/4" wide with 2 pins holding it to the side of the receiver. I guess you could say its kinda triangular shaped too.

I wouldn't think this is a scope mount cause its just flat on the sides, not shaped like other scope mounts I've seen on different AK's.

What is this for? Can it be removed and a scope mount be put in its place?

I would like to put a russian side mounted lighted rectical scope on it if I could.

If someone is interested in helping me out I could e-mail you a pic.

Thanks

Sounds like a scope rail to me.

Look like this?

I've got a KV I'd probably let go for $75 shipped if anyone is interested.

Thanks stimpsonjcat for the reply but it looks nothing like that. Thats the kind I've seen on other AK's.

Hey madhater thanks for trying to help me out. It's a preban I bought NIB last year at a gunshow. I guess I should have asked the guy when I bought it but I had planned to leave it alone since it was all original. But now I would love to put a russin scope on it.

Isn't "a National Match AK-47" an oxymoron? >evil grin<

Nighthawk,

Yes, that is for a scope mount. I have one on mine. You can get a scope mount for $25-$40. Good luck!
