I had this on a Saiga 7.62x39mm. According to the TWS website it will fit all Saiga rifle calibers, including .308win. Includes pin, C-clip, new cam action release, dustcover/rail, and rear peep sight. I would strongly prefer to sell the rail and sight as a unit, but I am willing to consider selling them separately. Peep in like-new condition. Rail in good condition, but has some wear from normal use: Finish rubbed off where optic was mounted. Wear from being hit by ejected shells. Wear inside near the back from cycling of the action. $95 ($70 for the rail system, $25 for the peep sight), includes shipping. If I have to sell them separately there will be a $5 shipping cost on each part. I accept PayPal. Please send me a PM if interested.
I have a vortex strikefire on an AR and I want to use it on my saiga 5.45 with the TWS dog leg rail. Vortex makes 30mm rings in a few different sizes, obviously low to pretty dang high. My question is will the "low" rings give enough clearance for the front of the optic? I'm not concerned with co-witness. Their site states: LOW - "height of 0.83 inches (21mm) from the base." MEDIUM - "height rings are ".97" / 24.6mm". I couldn't find if this has been covered anywhere. Like to get low as possible without the front bell of the optic touching. Thanks in advance.
SOLD I have a used Dog Leg Gen 2 rail from TWS. It has minor nicks and dings but nothing that affects its function. This comes with the peep sight which would cost $40 new. All necessary hardware is included minus the hex wrench. The value of this and the peep sight new would be $180. The rail works really well and held its zero through the couple rounds I've shot. The peep sight allowed a nice co-witness with my TRS-25. The reason I'm selling is because I'm going for a new look and have decided on an Ultimak gas rail. $110 shipped. PayPal please. CONUS only. Note: I will be at work until 2200 CST tonight so I will not be able to reply until then.
So my build is almost complete (aside from a few cosmetic touches) on my Saiga .308 so once again I turn to the Saiga gurus for some advice on which rear rail system to get. First off: Will they fit the Saiga .308? TWS says that it will and markets it for the Saiga .308. Parabellum has yet to reply but one of their distributors, AIM, replied and said it would if the Saiga .308 has a standard AK dust cover. This isn't something I know off hand. Which one is more rugged? I have yet to see torture testing on either but I'd like to see them dropped, thrown, rolled, etc. Not that I am planning to do these things with my gun but I'd like to know which is more likely to fail as this is my "go to" rifle. Anyone know of the backup iron sights function for the AKARS? The TWS has a rear peepsight that looks good ... I couldn't really tell what sort of backup iron sight the AKARS uses. Input? Once I have figured this out, bought and installed I'll put up a pic of my Saiga ... I love it as is, and it shoots great with irons but the optics mount will complete it. Thanks again guys!
