BHIs AKARS; optics mount for AKs
by admin on June 21, 2012 · 5 comments
Parabellum Armament is offering the AK Adaptive Rail System (AKARS) through Blackheart International. Its a hinged, four-point mounting platform for AK47 weapon optics with an integrated rail adapter and single-piece Pic rail/rear sight assembly and attachment hardware. The hinge design allows the user to lift the entire AKARS assembly away from the receiver for cleaning or maintenance without altering zero.
BHI says, The AK47 rifle and its variants have never been friendly to users looking to improve accuracy via optical sighting systems. The problem rests with the AKs receiver cover design, which does not provide for a solid mounting solution for conventional optics. Many optic mounting systems have been developed for the AK over the years that allows for installation of an optic on or adjacent to the receiver cover (the ergonomically ideal position for an optic system), but such inherent problems as sight instability, receiver access and the inability to utilize the OEM iron sights as a backup have made AK optics as much a novelty as a reliable solution for improving shooting accuracy.
The AKARS is available at www.bhigear.com.

His control over his person, his property, his movements, his business, his desires should be restrained only so far as the public welfare imperatively demands. The world is in more danger of being governed too much than too little.
It is the teaching of all history that liberty can only be preserved in small areas. Local self-government is, therefore, indispensable to liberty. A centralized and distant bureaucracy is the worst of all tyranny.
Taxation can justly be levied for no purpose other than to provide revenue for the support of the government. To tax one person, class or section to provide revenue for the benefit of another is none the less robbery because done under the form of law and called taxation."
