Mounting modern optics without permanent alterations

Post by skyridge » Wed Sep 19, 2018 12:08 am

It is possible to mount modern optics on the valmets, without making any permanent mods to the rifles, by using the AK Master Mount system

and combining this with a side mount. I have done this on both stamped and milled Valmet M78s and it works well as long as you follow the instructions and use washers and locktite etc. The most versatile side mounting system I have come across is the RS Regulate system, using both the picatinny and acog mounts. These give a nice low profile mounting set-up on the Valmets, with a lot of room for adjustment and different optics.

These aftermarket triggers also work well (and can be used in combination with the AK Master mount), without permanent modification.

Thanks very much for posting. Now I do not have to drill anymore of my AK's for scope mounts.
