    Default Project Pink scope rail

    Well darn, I just made some more work for myself.

    I was showing the GF how the AK design is the basis of other rifles, a basic "guns 101" history lesson. WELL I get to show her this page of the Croatian Galil copy:

    http://www.world.guns.ru/assault/as58-e.htm



    She saw the scope rail and said "OOOHHH I want one of those!" Well I was going to give her a scope anyway because she's hopeless with iron sights - right handed, and left eye dominant.

    SO here's what I'm thinking - using aluminum bar, I can make that long rail and add a scope rail to the top of it. If I make it hollow in the middle, like a G-36 carry handle/rail, the iron sights will still be useable. I'll attach the front at the RSB, and the back will be either riveted to the cover, OR I'll sandwich it around the cover somehow, maybe to the stock screw to be like a Polish style scope cover thingy. The Croats put their scope "into" the rail, I'm just going to mount a scope above the rail...

    If I really wanted to, I suppose I could mill those "cooling vents" into the handguard.

    Thoughts? Stupid idea? It looks like a good idea and I could probably even make these in bulk.

    Here's a quick brainstorm idea of what this could look like:

    I think it's a great idea. I wonder how stable ( side to side play)it will be if you attach it at the RSB and the rear of the recoil spring assembly?

    Winn you may have a point. Good thing is, she isn't one to "lean into" the gun and get a proper cheek weld. However I think I will plan for the rail to be close to where those RSB rails stand, which is just a bit above where the side-mount scopes sit. I figure I can mock up a rail in the garage and get it fitted to her cheek-weld height. Maybe the "carry handle" idea can wait.

    Real interesting idea. A handgrip sight-bridge would mimic the
    M-16. Should be fun to play around with.
