forsaken352 235 Posted March 18, 2015 Report Share Posted March 18, 2015 So, awhile back I had purchased a BP-02 low profile scope mount from Kalinka, like I had done in the past with my previous .308. Upon receiving it, I had noticed a few differences between the new mount and the mount I used to have. The new one, unlike the picture of the item on their website, was using some screws that looked like they were zinc plated or something. For me, that wasn't that big of a deal, though. I figured I could get some higher quality screws, then I'd loctite them in, and all would be well. Well, just a few days ago, I checked the mount for any looseness because I've felt like something had a little "wiggle" to it in the past, but could not find the culprit, until now. Seems one of the 2 screws holding the picatinny rail to the mount body has been stripped this whole time. So, basically, even though I've never gotten around to trying to zeroing my scope, even if I had, I would've just been wasting ammunition until I realized something just wasn't "right". So, off comes the BP-02, but what replaces it? I'll be honest, I like the side rail mounts, probably more than the Texas Weapon System style rails. I've come across this recently: https://www.legionusa.com/ak-optic-mount-low-profile-by-lynx-arms-manta.html I was kind of curious if anybody has used the Lynx mount, and if so, what they thought of it. It looks to be a solid product, and I like the fact it is made in Russia (just because. Russian rifle, Russian mount.), but it may be too low for using a scope without some very tall rings. For that fact alone, I'll probably move on to something more suitable for scoped use. What is the general consensus on the Midwest mount? http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?groupid=1023&name=Midwest+Industries+Optic+Mounts Aside from that, does anybody have any other suggestions? Thanks! -Forsaken Quote Link to post Share on other sites
