I would like to replace my standard v-notch AK sight with something more precise and faster to use. I don't really know anything about aftermarket AK sights and would like to check out as many options as possible.

Krebs makes a ghost ring that replaced the notch sight.

I just ordered a Mojosight Microclick for mine, it hasn't arrived yet. I bought mine from RSA, I'll let you know how I like it.

I just test fired my VEPR with a Krebs adjustable peep sight for the first time since it was installed. It doesn't obscure the target very much and it allowed very fast follow-up shots.
At $80 new it is a bit salty, but I would recommend it to anyone.

I have a Mojo Micro Click.
I like it a lot.

The down side of it is
It hangs over the receiver cover, about .75 inch, more than a standard leaf sight.
To get a good sight picture the front sight must be raised up high.
And they are expensive.

On the plus side
Different size apperatures are available,
Its windage adjustable,
The micro click for the AK goes from 50 Yards to 700 yards.
It cut my group size in half, at 100 and 200 yards.
I can now hit the target at 300 yards (using the smallest apperature)

If they were cheaper, I would get them for all my AKs.
But the next $70 bucks I spend will be for some more ammo.

How about forgetting iron sights and install an otical sideplate...Or a Ultimak or a Scout mount...
But if you want irons...Check out XS sights front for an AK.....
As for the rear???I have had both Krebs and mojo..
I prefer the Krebs fixed.
Bigger peep hole and WAY MORE DURABLE compared to the mojo.
The only draw back to krebs is the price but worth it.

I want to keep my AK as simple and rugged as possible, so no optics. I think I wouldlike the aperture to be as large as possible, since the AK rear sight is so far from the eye.

Open sights are easier for shooting at moving targets IMHO. I am more accurate with peep sights shooting at nonmoving targets.

Think it was Sargent York who orginally said he could hit moving target better with open sights.

Is anybody making a Galil or some other receiver/top cover mounted rear sight?

The only way these could work is if the receiver cover is very tight onto the receiver. And as you know, a lot of these covers move slightly.
