AK Scout Mount Model M2-B
(with vent holes, as found mostly on Chinese AKs) Replaces gas tube. Clamps directly to barrel for maximum stability and accuracy.
Scout Mount is constructed of one-piece, 6061-T6 hard anodized aluminum and a single MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail for mounting optics and accessories. Mount replaces the gas tube and attaches directly to the barrel with 4140 steel clamps for stability and accuracy. Includes vent holes near front end. Mounting tools and instructions included. No gunsmithing needed.
We stock the Vent Hole Type 2 because it fits ALL models, and it adds extra ventilation, and fits rifles with or without Vent Holes.
UltiMAK AK Scope Mount M2-B-- A rock-solid platform for your premium optics, shown at right installed on a Chinese rifle with original wood forend modified to fit the barrel clamps. Replacement forends are available here at UltiMAK, which need no internal modifications.
The M2-B has a Picatinny style rail positioned well below the iron sight axis, making this the lowest optic mount available for the AK. With a tubular sight mounted low, you will be able to use your optic without a comb riser and still use your regular hold. The system allows for co witnessing (the ability to use your iron sights right through a 1x sight as a back-up sighting system) when used with a tubular reflex sight. This heavy duty mount replaces the original steel gas tube and upper handguard, so it adds less than one ounce to the weight of the rifle, making it by far the lightest optic mount installation in the world. The forward positioning of the optic gives you faster, easier and more natural targeting while maintaining your full field of view. Multiple target or moving target engagements, with both eyes open, become second nature.
The mount rarely if ever needs to be removed to clean the rifle, so you need not worry about loss of zero. Since the mount is clamped to the barrel and not jammed in between the gas block and the sight block like the original gas tube, several UltiMAK users have reported an improvement in their AKs' inherent accuracy.
