Mounts sold under this category are discounted because they have minor blemishes (this kind of merchandise is also referred to as “seconds”). They have flaws that are cosmetic, but do not impact the mount’s functionality. Each blemished mount has its own imperfections, which may include small scratches, pitting in the anodizing finish, and slight discoloration of the finish.
The appearance of these blemished mounts can vary widely; the photos above show some minor scratches and marks one may expect on these particular M9 mounts. Note that some of these M9s feature a different picatinny rail profile, as you can see in the second photo. This is found in our older versions of AK mounts. They function just like our current versions.

UltiMAK M9– A rock-solid platform for your premium optics. With its rail positioned well below the iron sights, this is the lowest optic mount available for the AK. You will be able to use your optic without a cheek riser and still use your regular hold. Allows co witnessing of iron sights when used with tubular bodied 1x sights, such as Aimpoint or Tripower. Shown below with the Aimpoint Micro. (Photo by Oleg Volk)
For a co witnessing installation, mount an Aimpoint Comp (shown)in a low ring after cutting the grenade sight down to the first “ladder rung” as shown below. Cutting of the grenade sight is not required for the Aimpoint Micro or other miniature sight. This photo also shows the UltiMAK ACR2-MC railed modular forend, which is a drop-in fit with the M70 series AKs.
