Default Kobra EKP-08-02 Mount

I Just recently had the chance to look into a Kobra sight, but this one is weaver and sits waaaay too high on anything I mount it on. Would anybody know of any sources to an EKP-08-02 mount? If not, would anyone have any suggestions as to get that sucker to mount a little bit lower? Here is an example of what I'm looking for....



Any help is appreciated.

i dont think you can swap the bases. I know the weaver model sits high, i used to have a weaver model of PK-AS, same thing.

Partially responsible for that are the ballistic helmets that the Russian Commandos wear, which forces them to make the optic to sit higher.

I would ditch that model, sell it. And get a PK-06. here my write up on it

I actually read your write up the other day interestingly enough. I think the -02 mount is secured with the 4 flat head screws as does the weaver model, but I'm sure that doesn't mean it will mount right up. I like the sight, and I want to figure something out for it, I just don't want to spend a bunch of money on something that won't work.

here, https://www.opticsplanet.com/axion-k...ical-rail.html

ya might have to mod the mount some how, either by removing and or modding some holes. Ive never actually handled this mount though. Good luck! what version of Kobra do you have exactly?

I've got the EKP-8-14, It's just the weaver mount version. That looks like it might work perfectly if I do my part. Thanks for the input!

right right! let me know if the rail on the vertical side is removable, id ditch that or move it to the top if possible since its a little shorter and could save a tiny amount of weight over the longer top one.
