Parabellum Armament AKARS™
The AKARS™ is an Adaptive Rail System for the AK Rifle platform, including the AK-47, AKM, and AK-74. Parabellum Armament designed the AKARS™ to replace and upgrade the rear sight leaf and standard bolt cover to incorporate a 1913 Picatinny Rail, which can accept many optics utilized by various weapons systems.
The AKARS™ will hold your weapons zero after continuous use and cleaning and allows the capability to utilize existing iron sights with a rear sight incorporated in the Adaptive Rail System itself. The design ensures simple installation and long term use in all conditions.

Pretty easy and straightforward to install. Good tips can be found on Youtube for removing the rear sight and another for installing the AKARS.
Only complaint is that I had to relieve some material off the dust cover so the safety select switch can fully close. I saw this on other videos so I wasn't caught off-guard, but I was disappointed at such an obvious oversight on engineering's part.

I would ave given it 5 stars but the safety lever is not flush with the new dust cover. I'll need to Dremel the side to make it fit.
