Krebs Custom Peep Sight AK




What do you think about this video?

NEoutdoors: Do you think it helped with speed too?

Uniform Tango 74: Looks good dude.

jetfuel545: @semiautoriflelover Welcome, should have done so a while ago. Night and day improvement over original U notch. You can see how it gives a clear picture of the target.

Dr. MJOLNIR: Where can I get one of those ribbed dust covers?

Gloomshadow1: @jetfuel545 yeah ...back in the early 90s when I was a youngster.. B-West recievers made in the USA..they had a bad rep for that..one of the first recievers you could get to build your kit guns. They didnt heat treat them right the holes ffor all your pins would wallow out and your fire controls would get all freaked up after a few thousand rounds..

zams650: Love the sight picture, the peep sight setup was something I always greatly preferred shooting an AR over the AK and SKS for, it's so much faster and easier to obtain the same if not better accuracy with, and strains the eye less due to a lack focusing issues (in my opinion) encountered with the leaf sights. The AK seems to share a lot of the pro's of the AR when you consider the vast selection of aftermarket parts available. Thanks for posting!

DystruktoBoi1: I noticed ur charging handle is also angled up, is that cut and re-welded or did u buy a whole new carrier?

jetfuel545: I picked it up thru gunsamerica. The model was Intrac Mk II. I just added the vertical, wire folder, and muzzle brake to make it look authentic. Pretty sweet handling and very unique look.

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 Once you try one you will see just how much improv it is. I have shot this AK out to 400 with open sights and still can get a respectable group on man size torso. I would not even expect to get hits with the original at this range. The original Romanian Trigger in my gun was complete fail. Not worth a spit. It was just not machined right. A good representation of crap Romanian. Glade that was the only fail on this gun. Everything else is above expectations.

jetfuel545: Good enough to hit Oreo's standing at 100yd, and cinder blocks at 300yd. Ill take it.

Andrew Vrancik: Dude i know ive asked you this before, but where the hell did you get that AIMS from? ive never seen one before

cultofjimjones: @jetfuel545 oh absolutely. its good to have one just in case the batteries on my sights run out. which has happened on a range trip a couple of times. that is why i have all my dot optics mounted offset to the left or high. imo, the only major design flaw of the ak system is the rear sight. otherwise i prefer to keep it as is.

Tex Grebner Outdoors: glad you like the sight.

Gloomshadow1: @jetfuel545 I ended up selling the 84 off to my Company Commander (A Co. 1-327Inf 101st Airborne) who collected AKs for 750 bucks back in 94. He loved it. I bought a used Ninja ZX600 with the money bc I didnt want to be stuck in the barracks all the time..so, I guess it was worth it.

NEoutdoors: Did it decrease your MOA?

jetfuel545: @FailedDelirium That im not sure. Call Krebs and ask. Thanks for watching

Not Required: nice sight i made my own, dremel to notch a half circle in the real sight then put a small piece of steel tubing and tacked it into place works great total cost nothing

cultofjimjones: im actually considering this.

MrAsundstrom: good point... and as i expect that all engagements i may have to do with my AK would be under 100 yards then im still gonna stick with the XS... im sure the peep sight is a great sight; just goin with what fits me. anything past 100 yards i have a different rifle for. thanks for the feeback!

salmonking007: @i7q Saigas use a 1000m rear that's only labeled to 300. Buy the 1000 meter sight, the 800 with throw off your BDC.

jetfuel545: @LibertyorDeath777 Ill send you a link that will solve your troubles.

jetfuel545: @BDChapman Your welcome. Thanks for watching. It sits just where it is suppose to. Its takes just a short time to get used to, as its mounted forward unlike traditional peep sights, but in short order it will feel like second nature. And It makes sight alignment faster and clearer. I think you will find it a great upgrade.

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 That is some serious $. Im sure I would have done the same being in your position at the time. Wonder If its still in his care.

Jarek07: @Anarki23x dude this isn't airsoft...

i7q: does anyone know which peep sight works for the saiga 7.62x39 rifle? the 800 or 1000 meter sight? thanks

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 im looking at a pic of one that sold on gunsamerica. That is a beautiful Kalashinkov. I would like to get the chance to fire or own one one day. This one was an underfolder. I prefer a good side folder most of the time.

MrAsundstrom: err... *feedback

jetfuel545: @cbr6864 That is great you made your own. I hope it works well for you.

Gloomshadow1: @jetfuel545 I doubt it..at the time it was right after the Clinton ban, so the price skyrocketed.

spaxspore: @jetfuel545 Got this one my SGL 31.. only way to roll. I always recommend users who ask me about it to view this video. Well done sir.

jetfuel545: @the308capital It does have a little cant to it. its a true Romanian build. Intrac MK II. It was a 97 import. Seems to shoot pretty true out to 300 for me.

jetfuel545: @Anarki23x I spent $65, because im not ghetto.

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 I tried several diff magazines with no cure. It was a problem that did not show itself until several hundred rounds. It almost was like the receiver bent. Not sure what it was, that problem is long gone.

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 Thats what i suppose as well. Had never seen that before or since.

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 Absolutely, The G2 is a solid unit. Many top quality build utilize them for good reason.

RoyalPredator: Its Downgrade...

jetfuel545: $80 bucks now! Wow, that is robbery. I paid $60 some years back and thought that was steep.

Gloomshadow1: @jetfuel545 well think about it..why make "TWO"? just make ONE!! freak Pepsi, just COKE! thats how they thought..thats the simplistic beauty of Commie thinking... "freak Pepsi!...COKE!"

jetfuel545: It shoots the 7n6 milsurp best and this is where I had to move the sight to get good center impact. With wolf and Silver bear the sight was almost centered. My Norinco 56s sight with Golden Tiger ammo is dead center. With the wolf it is right about half way. It does not bother me like some guys. As long as I can get them centered. A lot of guys dont even adjust their sights. They will just Kentucky windage it. That is not for me, lol

aaron curd: how much did you pay for this? i just got my sgl21 and 32 in and wanted some different sighting options. the standard leaf sight isnt quick enough for me right now and probably wont be unless i can get some serious practice in with them. thanks

Andrew Vrancik: Yea thats sweet, and rather rare speaking of AK74's

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 Lol, O the beauty of Russian engineering.

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 I got some advice from a couple sources before upgrading my trigger. I had two in mind the Tapco G2, and the Arsenel. After both respected authorities pointed me to the Arsenal for strength of metal and precision I went ahead with the purchase. The only worry I had was the advertised pull weight. It seemed like it was going to be a heavy heavy trigger pull. But to my pleasant surprise the trigger was smooth clean crisp and not heavy. A great upgrade and buy.

jetfuel545: @rcroach23 They are $65. You can buy them from krebs themselves or midwayusa sells them. Just look at your sight and buy the same on that is on your rifle 800 or 1000. Now go buy it!

Ledmetacdc: Any idea if this will fit on an SKS?

jetfuel545: @Gloomshadow1 To fix a bum trigger the G2 is a good option. This peep has made all the difference in the world. i like shooting iron sights especially at long range. The original just do not cut it. The further you shoot the more they suck, this peep however only gets better the further you shoot. Group size shrank aprox 25% at 100yd and only get tighter the further you shoot. See my 300yd AK vs AR accuracy to get an idea of what group the AK-74 will shoot at range.

Adam Bond: Is that front sight post home made or something? It looks like its made out of paper!

Gloomshadow1: @jetfuel545 something got bent.. bad heat-treating on the reciever I bet

Uniform Tango 74: @jetfuel545 How much did it run you?

jetfuel545: @cultofjimjones If you want to increase both target acquisition time and accuracy its a must have. That is if we are talking between irons only.
