New AK Rail- not exactly Choate

The new AK rail that I reported on a few days back will soon be available through Tactical Response and Choate. The manufacturer is apparently located here in my home state of Indiana! They focus on military contracts and it sounds like the civilian market rails will be a limited run for now. Get 'em while their hot!

Kalinka introduces Version 3 of the Tim Heffron mount

This is a 30mm ring mount is probably the best opition over the other two version that have been out there. When the discussion of a side mount that would co-witness was wanted, this was the one referenced in the first place. Apparently Tim finally got them to import it! It should co-witness with a lot of rifles and allows a little more mounting options with the rail. Looks like you could even use offset rings that are currently being used for flashlights.
