Scoped AK rifles require a very low mounted optic to obtain a proper cheek weld for consistent shooting. One only needs to observe the height of the standard iron sights to confirm this.
Most scope mounts for the AK place the optics too high to maintain a proper cheek weld. This is done as a compromise solution to allow scope mounting while permitting dust cover removal. This unfortunate compromise forces the shooter to brace the
Buttstock along the jaw line or
in some cases completely under the chin.
TWS solves this dilemma with the innovative new second generation Dog Leg™ Scope Rail with integral dust cover. Incorporating a unique joggle shape behind the rear sight block the Dog Leg™ railed top cover provides the lowest possible MIL-STD-1913 mounting surface. Field stripping capability is preserved with the quick release cam lock mechanism that
precisely returns to zero, yet is so simple to operate.
The Dog Leg™ replaces the standard dust cover and easily installs with a single hinge pin to the rear sight block in place of the rear leaf sight. The included cam lock release button replaces the standard release button and is installed to the return spring.
Fits most AK pattern rifles including stamped and milled receivers, as well as fixed, underfolder, and side folding stocks.
The adjustable front tab allows custom fitting to the user's individual weapon.

Accurate and consistent cover placement after opening
is achieved with a self-centering mechanism. The right side cover panel is
employed as a spring drawing the opposite cover panel into contact with the
Spring tension and accuracy of repeatability is
controlled by an inward bent tab of the spring panel. Bend angle may be
adjusted to user preference.
A cam action release button replaces the standard button and
draws cover tightly against receiver. The underside of the release button
is angled and interacts with cover opening. The cam angle converts the
return spring force to a 3X clamping force.
