UltiMAK M17 Forward Optics Mount for the following AK pistols: C39, C39V2 & RAS-47, PSA AK-P, and for the following AK rifle: VSKA Trooper, or TPR.
Replaces the piston tube/upper handguard assembly and incorporates a Picatinny/Weaver style rail. Clamps directly to barrel for maximum stability, accuracy, and optimum bore alignment. This is the lightest, lowest, best mount available for your AK. Based on the proven and successful M1-B and M2-B UltiMAK AK mounts, adapted to the AK pistols made by Century Arms. Easy installation instructions included.
The UltiMAK system provides a better, more sensible optic sight height, without adding weight or bulk to the gun. The M17 optic mount allows co witnessing of the iron sights with most tubular reflex type sights, such as Aimpoint.
- One-piece hard anodized aluminum mount body (6061-T6)
- Barrel clamps are 4140 steel, secured with alloy steel cap screws
- Overall Length: 5.381"
- Made in the U.S.A.
PLEASE NOTE: Some C39V2 pistols, and possibly a few RAS-47 pistols, were made using the standard rifle gas system length. Remove and measure your piston tube if you are unsure. If you have the standard rifle piston tube it will measure slightly under 7 inches overall. If that is the case you want the M2-B listed near the top of this page. Don't say we didn't warn you. Nominal design length for all our AK mounts is one eighth inch less than the factory tube being replaced.
*May require SH-1 Shim Set.
Our C39 pistol requires the shims, whereas the V2 model we tried did not. The C39 pistol has a smaller barrel of ~0.6" diameter at the optic mount clamping position inside the lower handguard. That small diameter is usually only found on a certain few AKs chambered in the 5.45 and 5.56 mm calibers. A ~0.6" barrel requires our shim set SH-1. It is therefore a good idea to measure your barrel diameter about one to two inches in front of the rear sight block. The lower handguard will need to be removed to take the measurement. An approximate barrel diameter of 0.6" (about 0.595" to 0.610") requires the shims. A barrel of approximately 0.7" does NOT need shims. Our RAS-47 pistol does NOT need shims, NOR did the C39V2 we tried. Shown above on a Romanian AKM-74, you see the shims in place. This photo also depicts the position of the barrel clamps relative to the rear sight block on these AK pistols.
**This mount does NOT fit C39 or RAS-47 rifles (see our M2-B for those), nor does it fit most other AK pistols. If you're trying to outfit some other AK pistol or SBR, remove and check your piston tube overall length (OAL) to be sure. An UltiMAK mount should be roughly one eighth inch shorter than your original factory piston tube.
