No.

Don't get me wrong, I like RS sidemounts and that's saying a LOT because I fucking despise sidemounts in general, but if I want to mount a conventional scope on an AK that's the only way to go, superb equipment.

But the Attero is cheaper, lighter, and no side-mount-clunkiness to deal with.

It was kinda tongue-in-cheek, sorry.

But I have to say I seriously doubt the value of "string-checking" a WASR.

Plus it will lead to heartbreak and noobs selling perfectly good rifles.

In a way it is, but variety of different setup or approach is not always a bad thing and it give people something based on their preference.
Personally I just don't think it's designed properly. I would have made it more like Parabellum top rail setup (the RSB portion) but with larger screw and possibly two screws.

And as for folders, imo it's a gimmick. I own 4 folders and don't used them (folding) or even have a desire to, even when transporting. Good telescopic stock is more then suffice for a rifle to be compact or even deployed in a vehicle.

My rifles with rails have RS, underfolders and ones that came without rails have Atteros. Variety is nice! They are both great. Kumbaya-

Nope, never got to shoot your AMD-65, that weekend flew by.

And if it ain't RIGHT it must be WRONG.

See, you're cheating. Though my AMD-65 could technically swing both ways.

Started this thread to inform others of the flaw that i discovered, because no one seems to say anything about it.
It quickly fired up with name calling and made up accusations based on ones opinion.
Then somehow i became an owner of crooked WASR, even thought i never held one in my hands.
Now it calmed down to discussion about which way folder on AMD65 swings

Fostech adapter, stormwerkz hinge and CNC Warrior Triangle stock. The stormwerkz hinge can be flipped to let the stock fold either way.

The disparity of opinions about the Attero is stunning. Usually a piece of equipment gets universal praise or scorn here at The Files.

It doesn't appeal to me personally but my rifles have side rails.

I do know that it works as advertised on MattyZ28's rifle or he would not tolerate it.

I know right? It's kind of like the cilantro of gun accessories.

Srsly? You really think your WASR is 100% straight, no cant anywhere, everything lined up perfectly?

In truth, it's best you keep thinking that. Nothing wrong with that rifle. You start checking and you'll get upset, and then you'll sell a rifle that shoots fine despite what are actually normal flaws in the model.

Well my Attero mount seems to be ok. I shot 100 rds with it today with zero shift after getting zero. But I was not doing anything crazy just a little run and gun.

Push it with a thumb to the left and right while watching your dot (or what ever you have mounted there). Does it shift and not return to zero like in my pics?
If no - you g2g.
If yes - get ready for Dragynn to dump a pile of emotional nonsense on you.

No it is solid, no shift by pushing on it. I did not do anything too tough just some run and gun.

Awesome, glad it works for you!
I dont see point of putting it under too much stress. It is a solid mount if it mounts properly. You are more likely to destroy your optic before you will do any damage to it.

I think i found solution to the issue, feel confident about it.
Used a screw from RS side mount instead of the provided roll pin. Updated original post with pictures.

Im glad you found something to make yours work. I have a question in the last pic it looks like your gas tube lever will hit the screw or is it just the angle of the pic.

I'm pretty sure it will. Might try going left to right instead of right to left.

Correct, it will, but i clean my rifles once in few years. Even then gas tube only comes off for rust preventive measurements if im somewhere in wet environment.
bigger deciding factor for me is that this mount is not cut evenly, including build in rear sights, and it sits a bit off to the side on my rifle. I removed picture of that due to all the whining, but ill post it here for reference to what im talking about.
So if i use screw to apply pressure from the right, that will align mount with the rifle. If from the left, it will be off to the side. Obviously rear sight will shift as well, so that is another bonus on top of everything else

ROTFL!! yeah kid, i'm totally crying in my beer over a clueless noob and his sloooooooow learning curve about AK's (cause that hardly ever happens..lololol).

Your RSB is not straight, most Wasr's aren't. There's a hundred ways to fuck up slightly when machining a piece like that, and Ivan+vodka means you will see all of them eventually.

Your pictures reveal that you've been taking the mount off and on, so i'm guessing you never loc-tited it in the first place, and i'd be willing to bet you didn't locate the nut properly before tightening it down either.

You do know roll pins come in many sizes right? Really really cracking up at the whole socket-head screw thing, not quite as funny as the one guy I saw using drywall screws, but you're getting there.

Problem is not the part, it's the operator. You clean your rifle "once in few years" is it? wow.
