A rock-solid platform for your premium optics. With its rail positioned well
below the iron sights, this is the lowest optic mount available for the AK. You
will be able to use your optic without a cheek riser and still use your regular
hold. Allows co witnessing of iron sights when used with tubular bodied 1x
sights, such as Aimpoint or Tripower. Shown at right with the Aimpoint Micro.
UltiMAK Optic Mount fit my rifle?
Optic Mount has been engineered for compatibility with a wide range of AK rifle
variations. The M9 is custom built for your M70 series Yugoslavian AK, which
has a longer gas tube than other AKs. The M70 grenade sight should fold down
completely, nesting over the top of the rail. The M9 will have enough exposed
rail length to allow mounting the EOTech 511 and 551, and some of the smaller
reflex sights like the Aimpoint Micro. To access more of UltiMAK M9's rail
length it will be necessary to cut off the top portion of the M70's grenade
sight. The grenade sight should not be removed as it serves to open and close a
gas check valve inside the gas block, and provides detents for the open and
have radically misaligned gas blocks as compared to the rear sight block. In
rare cases, this can cause problems installing the UltiMAK Mount.
AK mounts are designed to be slightly shorter than the original gas tube. This
helps in two significant ways:
ensures a greater probability of a good fit without requiring custom work.
important, the shorter tube can be mounted so it does not touch the rear sight
block or the gas block. This way, the mount is not jammed against any part of
the barrel assembly at either end, and the barrel can expand and contract with
temperature changes without altering your POA/POI (Point Of Aim / Point Of
Impact) relationship. Several customers have indicated an improvement in
accuracy after installing UltiMAK mounts on their rifles. Please do not call us
and tell us your UltiMAK optic mount is "too short". Instead, watch
wood forend from Zastava will fit with the M9 clamps with no problem. At this
time we are not aware of any after-market forends (lower handguards) that will
fit the M-70 series AKs (both the lower and upper handguards are longer than
standard). However, the UltiMAK ACR2-MC modular rail forend will fit the M70
series rifles perfectly.
some badly assembled rifles, and some rifles that are at the extremes of AK
dimensions. If you cannot make your UltiMAK Optic Mount fit and function, you
may return it to us (undamaged) and we will cheerfully refund your purchase
price. Alternatively, trade your crooked AK in for a straighter one, and enjoy
the substantial benefits of the UltiMAK system.
