RST for Stamped KalashnikovsOccam Defense Solutions
UPDATE! We're now making RSTs for 18.5mm Rear Sight Base journaled barrels! This covers most milled receivers (except Sharps Bros in most cases), plus some Arsenal stamped guns like at least some of the SLR-107, and all US made Century AKs. To know for sure, watch THIS VIDEO.
Now you can attach an optic to the most solid place on the AK rifle. If the optic fails, simply remove the optic and use the rear notch as normal.
This RST is machined from a solid heat treated billet of 4140 steel to Soviet specs. This billet RST is known to be compatible with stamped receiver AKM-47s and AK-74s from Russia, East Germany, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Egypt. Not Compatible with Milled Receivers or guns from Yugoslavia and Serbia. Not compatible with Polish Tantal. Bore change required for some 5.56 AKs from Bulgaria.
Installation: We strongly recommend installation of the RST by a qualified gunsmith.
Notice: This part is ITAR export controlled. Not for use outside of the U.S.
This part is patented. See occamdefense.com/IP for details.
This product is great for adding a touch of modern to an old design. I have 3 of these so far. One on a wasr10, one of a pestilence (currently being built) and one on a saiga sporter rifle (for state compliance). The good: -The RST is the most solid mounting solid for the ak. -the iron sight picture is REALLY good. I almost didn’t mount an optic because my groups shrunk with iron sights compared to the leaf sight. The bad: -optics will mount a tad higher than an RS Regulate or ultimak mount. -gunsmith required. Great product.
