Default Texas Weapon Systems Dog Leg Scope Rail Gen 2 ~ Any Reviews? Worth Trying?

Hello all,
I have been complaining of the rear stock sights on a Yugo AK (both fixed and Underfolder stock). It was recommended to me that I give this rail a try in combination,ton with the peep sight. Thr added ability to possibly use a small red dot has its appeal too.

My question, how solid/reliable is it? I realize that the AK isn't a pecision shooter and the stock sight have their limitations, however if this rail is a POS like some of thr other AK cover rails, perhaps I can save myself the trouble.

Thanks

I think it's an excellent product. While not perfect, it is close. Red dots and the peep sight will hold zero, the rail is very solid. I can't comment on what mounting a scope would be like, but i would think that the results would be pretty damn good as well. The added sight radius with a peep sight will make you a much more accurate shooter.

The AKARS rail is also another option, and while not as proven as the TWS Rail it seems to be getting good reviews as well. I don't have any personal experience with the AKARs rail.

It's the best thing since sliced bread! Ive got one on my SLR 95 and after many rounds Ive never had to adjust scope after I first sighted it in. I need to get that peep sight next. Good Luck

Works like a charm...Buddy has one on a Draco. Holds zero to say the least.

There's an 80+ page thread on arfcom about it.
Seems to be well liked by those who own them.

I've got one, solid now after using red loc-tite on the adjustment screws (blue wouldn't hold it for no reason).

I have doubts about long-term ABUSE, but it's good for the most part I think.

Is there any co-witness with a low mounted red dot?
