What is the best scope mount and scope for an AK?

I just got my Polish Tantal AK-74 in. The iron sights stink and I am looking at aftermarket sighting. Any suggestions?

You know I was going to say "It's a waste" but you're right the stock iron sights do suck. I have been looking at different systems and it seems like the best application for that rifle is a forward mounted Red Dot or heads up holographic sight. The days of the side mount hunting rifle scope are numbered and most people I see are going with the non-magnified electronic sights mounted on the upper handguard. You can check out both mounts and sights at Cabela's or Cheaper Than Dirt and lots more places too but those 2 will give you a start.

In the current economic conditions it is imperative to get the most you can for your buying dollar. So there is certainly no reason to over pay for when you can find many of them that you can buy on eBay. Plus, eBay is amongst the largest sized and most respected web based shopping sites globally. This site is permitted by eBay to make it easier to locate the that you are hunting for and exhibit them for you. If you can not notice the hunting for down the page. Use the lookup feature on your right, or use one of the latest queries in the list.

Hunting Rifle Scopes- What To Look For When Buying One

There are so many different variations out there when it comes to hunting scopes, it's no surprise when hunters have a hard time choosing the best fit for them. Do you purchase ones that offer durability, but no image clarity? How about one that provides the perfect clarity, but no type of adjustment capability? Is there even one that provides all of these features? All great questions, and today you will find out the answers.

The Adjustment Capabilities

Enjoying this option is extremely important. Hunting scopes without them don't offer any of the same types of benefits, especially when the aiming setup will be different after every shot. This would be a waste of time, and purchase scopes without them is a waste of money. The best thing to do is make sure the reticle has no type of movement. Granted, there might be minor moving capabilities, but not enough to where it will make a huge difference.

The Right Image Clarity

If you're not able to see your target it's going to be hard to take down your prize. One of biggest parts to hunting scopes surrounds image clarity. In order to get the very best resolution, there has to be plenty of lighting available. The two go hand in hand, and you will definitely notice the difference from rifle scopes that don't offer this benefit.

It's also a good idea to choose the right size as well. The bigger the lens, the better you will be able to see everything in the direction you're looking.

What Type of Durability

There isn't much to the durability process. Either the hunting scopes you see have it or they don't. There is no in between here, and it's usually based on the type of materials that are used as to whether or not they will pass the test.
Then again, you should consider other areas as well.

You definitely don't want any type of hunting scopes that are heavy and bulky. When you go to shoot, they will weigh down the gun. This will make it nearly impossible to hit your target accurately. You need something that is lightweight, and provides enough stability when mounted.

What else to consider

While the three components above are essential to have, there are other parts to hunting scopes that can enhance your benefits. These include precision instruments, perfectly aligned mount, reflection reduction, as well as many others.
The best thing to do is take your time and really look over all the hunting rifle scopes out there. It's also a good idea to think about your needs first, because it can narrow down your choices tremendously.
