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
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
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
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
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
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.
Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
