Doesn't that cover fit a bit too loose to use for a sight mount?

Most people consider them too lose to hold zero. Removing it for cleaning would also throw off zero.

Its a freakin AK... how much play do you have in your receiver cover? Mine maybe a mm, if that... What kind of effect is that going to have at 100 yards shooting Wolf?

Shooting Wolf, you probably wouldn't notice the difference.

Just an FYI...Kreb's recommends not using the AR-15 style peep sight on Romanian rifles.

This is the response i got from krebs.

Our AR15-style rear sight is attached to the receiver cover with screws. However, the rear of the recoil spring guide assembly must also be modified to stabilize the receiver cover.
If you have access to a gunsmith or a machinist, there are instructions for installing and modifying both parts that accompany the parts, or you could send your parts to us and have us do the work.
The sight itself is $65, and installation would be another $65, plus about $10 for shipping the parts back to you.
Please keep in mind that this is the rear sight WITHOUT the Picatinny rail section in front of it.
If you'd like to discuss this, or order the parts, feel free to call us at 847-487-7776.
Thank you for your interest in Krebs Custom.

I work part time with Brian at another gunshop, that Krebs A2 peep sight is ingenious! Basically you lock down recoil spring guide with an allen screw. I got a chance to see their railed version on their KTR-03 rifle. Pretty awesome.
