Default Which RS mount for peep sight Krnk top cover?

I have an SLR-106UR that will become an SBR once my Form 1 returns. I ordered a peep sight top cover for it since my aging eyes (and six eye surgeries) don't see the irons very well anymore.


But the peep sight sits further back than the folding blade.


It got me thinking about red dot placement...


If I use an RS mount, which one to buy?

No, that is not what he is referring to.
You can try forward based 301 mount. Google a picture of how it sits on other rifles, rest you can figure out for yourself

I don’t have any recommendations - I don’t think any fit well at this time.

Fitted a Williams peep sight to an RS Regulate Aimpoint micro mount. Both required filing and sanding but eventually fit nicely. I have yet to shoot it and sight it in but I think it will work alright.

You are referring to the Bulgarian peep top cover, correct?

https://www.k-var.com/bulgarian-krin...-up-peep-sight

If so, and everyone's awareness, the rear sight tower is located further back from the RSB on these. Making optics which do fit a standard AKS74UN iffy.

ETA: I thought Chris had a chart on his site showing what optics and mounts he'd tried with the Bulgy top cover in place, but that may have just been a standard top cover, and I can't find the chart at the moment anyway.

ETA 2: here's the link, but it's for the standard top cover
