Ok Help me understand it all for I am somewhat knew to this family of rifles. Is the difference between ak-47 and 74 the 7.62mm and the 5.56mm(.223), if this is so, is the Romanian SAR3 a comparable piece to the 74??Thanks MP:usa:
After the success of the US's 5.56mm, Russia developed a similar round in 5.??mm. It is not the same as the 5.56 NATO/.223 Remington (which aren't the exact same either). It also has a steel core (like the military 7.62x39), but does not have the explosive damage in soft tissue as the US's 5.56 FMJ.
Does anyone use the scoutscope.com mount that attaches at the rear sight location? Or know of a better option for a red dot?
I went through alot of research back when i picked up an sks and i started with a Williams rear aperature sight with a kns front crosshair. Later I decided to get a red...
I finally figured out how to have a really good rear adjustable sight on my Saiga 7.62x39. I got a surplus HK G3 rear turret sight and a Texas Weapons Systems picatiny dust cover and grafted them together. Works with the stock front AK sight.
