Hey all,

I have a Century WASR 10/63 with the side rail attachment and was wondering 1) If I can buy a scope that will attach directly to the rail and 2) What scope should I mount on to it to enhance my accuracy.

Thanks for any help yall can provide.

they do make mounts that will attach to the side rail, right now I forget the manufacturer. I'll get back to you when I can remember.

The one I use is called BP-02 made in Belarus. A google search will show a few places that sell them. One thing is to make sure you get the correct mount. I believe there are 2 types - one for the SVD and another for the standard AK.

It's just a mount so you would still need some optic to put on top. I like the Burris Fast Fire II and Bushnell TRS-25. As far as magnified scopes, not sure if anything more than 4x will help, given the range of the 7.62x39.

Good luck.

check out kalinka optics.

I used a 3x9 POSP scope which was pretty awesome (but heavy). Check out all the PO, and POSP scopes. they work pretty well with sidemounts.

Thanks for the info guys I'll check it out. Also thinking about adding a foregrip to it. Give me a little more stability. The only problem is trying to sort through everything to actually get what I want for a decent price.

If you also want a foregrip, you might want to look at the Midwest industries quad rails instead. You can still add optics (co-witness red dot), but not a scope (you can, but it would be weird). For the foregrip, you will need something short (stubby) because any longer will interfere with magazines longer than 20 rounds. I also like the Magpul AFG.

Now is the Magpul able to work with the Midwest Ind. quad rail or is it a separate system all together?

Try the AK pics thread or google it. There are few pictures of the two together. You would need to buy each separately. I think u can get the quad rails for $110 and the AFG for $30.

Just a note...the scope will not increas your accuracy. It will aid your eyes, but the accuracy will still come down to the fundamentals: barrel, ammo, trigger, and you. (mainly you). If you can't hit something at 100 yards with irons, chances are you may not hit it much better with a scope.

As mentioned Kalinka Optics and other companies provide a bunch of side-rail options. Mounting optics boils it down to one question: magnified or non-magnified? That changes where and how you should/could mount it.

Elbows you are correct I did misstate my intentions for wanting a scope.
