    I've got an old Burris Fastfire mounted on a Midwest Industries red dot mount which co-witnesses with the irons, and it's still working. Not the best red dot, so a Trijicon or Aimpoint should be fine.

    There is a chance that the MRO could benefit from the very forward positioning with the ultimak. The MRO with its notorious parallax issues could have reduced problems the further from your eye.

    Iíve never experience the parallax problems that so many seem to complain about. I own 5 MROs including one with a 14k serial number that Iíve been running since 2015. Maybe Iím really consistent with my cheek weld and head placement. Or maybe Iím lucky. No magnification issues either. Just the slight blue tint. Ive shot a lot of steel between 10 and 20 yardsÖ..when I miss itís all me.

    Here's the rear biased Yugo optic mount that's made by AK Master Mount. It sits as low as you can get without being on the rail. It's pretty much at a perfect height for me to get a good cheek weld for my ACOG. They also make a full length version if you want your optic to be more forward.

    Took me more than a little bit before I could effectively shoot an AK pattern rifle as well as my others.
    It was just the opposite for me.

    I used combloc stuff from the beginning and had to "learn" the AR pattern. It felt completely foreign the first time I fired one.

    That was the 90's and people hadn't really figured out how to build them yet. Lots of stoppages in classes and competitions while my AKM worked. I know they've improved since. I played with them and had a couple that ran well. Used one at a two-gun match and had a stoppage. I didn't practice clearing them enough so it ruined the stage. I never really cared for AR's but am impressed by thier accuracy. I don't own one now. (Or any AK's)

    But I digress.

    The Ultimak is an excellent way to mount your RDS. If you dont like that, or want to use a magnified optic, use the side rail. I tried many ways and that's what I learned.

    Hey BretÖ..how do you like the M90? Decent accuracy? If I hadnít already had lots of ammo and magazines for the 7.62 Iíd probably have gone the M90 route.

    It's accurate and reliable with very good fit and finish. The only negative is that it's heavy. I have several M90 variants.

    I think I got my SP1 carbine in 1981 and despite shooting some of the cheapest surplus ammo I could find in Sportsman's Guide (Like Malaysian surplus from the 60s) the few stoppages I've had have all been magazine related (usually tying to save a dollar on some no name 30 round crap magazine).

    My dad got an A2 rifle around 85/86 and we went shooting the week of my wedding in 2001. When I went to clean his the bolt and carrier looked like a piece of charcoal with worn lumps of carbon all over it. I asked him when he cleaned it last and he told me "Well I bought it around 1986." Not sure of the round count but he was a regular shooter.

    But yeah when people started doing builds, I saw lots of problems.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Man I wish my dad had been into guns. He was a big time hunter. He took the grand slam of North American sheep in the 70ís. He believed in guns for self defense but by todayís standards was a total fud. Guns were tools. The most interesting thing he owned was a S&W 686. I tried time and time again to get him to buy so many of the awesome offerings at that time by H&K and a Colt AR. Heíll, I couldnít even get him interested in a Hi-Power or 1911. Heíd say do I look like a terrorist to you son? And he wouldnít buy on my behalf using my own money. When I turned 18 I started buying what I could but I didnít have the access to the cash I needed to buy very much. So I missed out on a lot of great opportunities.
