The whole idea behind the Ultimak M1-B system is to provide a low which allows you to use either an optic or iron sights. I’ve used this product on my own AKs and can’t say enough good things about it. It’s low so you’ll be able to co-witness and use use your optic without a comb riser.
It replaces the original steel gas tube and upper handguard, adding less than one ounce to the weight of the rifle. It’s by the lightest optic mount installationon the market. The forward positioning of the optic gives makes it easy to use while maintaining your full field of view.
Comes with 4140 steel clamps, screws, allen wrench, and instructions. No Gunsmithing.
