I am an AK enthusiast located in Madison, Mississippi that was looking for a solution on how to best mount optics to an AK rifle without a factory side rail. After much thought and tinkering, I came up with the AK Master Mount ™ side rail design. My shooting colleagues liked my prototype and wanted one. This led to even more requests for my side rail. Fast forward several years and I am now offering these side rail kits and other AK products to help others enjoy the AK shooting sport even better.
