Keeping your shots on target is what it’s all about. Whether you require the quick target acquisition of a red dot or the range of a magnified optic, the Gen-3 Dog Leg TM scope rail has you covered. Mounted directly over the receiver, the patented Dog LegTM scope rail with integral dust cover provides optimal balance, generous rail space, and protects delicate optics from barrel heat. The ingeniously simple and rugged design provides a rock solid mount for accuracy and a forward hinged, quick release cover with rear cam lock design to preserve the AK’s field stripping qualities. The quick release hinge also allows the use of longer scopes without the need for quick detach mounts. Available in various configurations for standard pattern AK, Yugo, C39 and PSL rifles.

Kit Includes
    • Dog Leg Rail Top Cover
    • Hinge Fork with takedown pin (pre-installed)
    • Hinge Base with screw
    • Nut Plate (under hinge base)
    • Hinge Base Pin & retaining clip
    • Cover Release Button
    • Allen wrench

    • NOTE: Some rifles need an additional part (PN 55315 - Guide Wire & Retainer Cap / 6”) that works in
      conjunction with the TWS supplied Cover Release Button. Most AK rifles have a recoil spring assembly that consists of two long “U” shaped wires that loop together. The two looped wires assemble inside the recoil spring.
      If your AK rifle has a telescopic tubular type recoil guide, please order the additional part, Guide Wire & Spring Retainer (PN 55315). This additional part, along with the Cover Release Button will replace your telescopic tubular type recoil spring assembly.

1 of 5 Incorrect hardware received July 28, 2019
Reviewer: Evan  
The forward hinge pin that mounts within the rear sights of the rifle is not long enough to go through so I can put the E Clip to secure it in place. When I ordered I double checked to make sure my make and model was listed as supported, which it is specifically. So either the wrong one came with it or they don't have the right one available. Everything else fits nice and tight on my PSAK 47.

I tried contacting customer support but have yet to hear back from them, it's been over a week as of writing this.

My reasons for the negative review are the customer service and the parts being wrong for my rifle, I can't speak to the product's quality as I have not been able to use it yet since I can't properly secure it down.

1 of 5 Dog Leg Rail System July 18, 2018
Reviewer: Aguimar Da Silva from Coconut Creek, FL United States  
Hi there,

I brought a Dog leg rail system for my Yugoslavian AK-47  years ago. was the first time this company made it. I  mounted a scope and went shooting at a target range, it never worked properly every time I change the range I need to reset, it is defective and this never works. I just realized when I read another person review that he was describing the same defect that I was experiencing. I see on the website that they are up to an III generation of this product.

I  asked this company to take this one defective that never worked and replace for one of those of newer generation. I was willing to pay a difference of the amount. my request was denied because of more than 30 days pas since the time of the purchase.
This was my experience you will be the judge.

5 of 5 Work very good ! February 25, 2016
Reviewer: Svetoslav Genov from las vegas, NV United States  
I put one on my vepr 54r and it works very good i didn't even have to enlarge the ejection port! The only thing that concerns me a little is very tiny play, in where the take down pin goes. So i just hope it doesn't get bigger in future. For now my scope holds zero, its been around 200 rounds. So still early to tell. but over all very happy with it .

5 of 5 Fits the Norinco (National Match) MAK-91 AKM!! February 23, 2016
Reviewer: Preacher from Pittsburgh, PA, USA  
Up until I discovered TWS, I'd been searching for 13+ months for one company out there who offered an aftermarket solution for mounting an optic on the Norinco MAK-91.

This Gen 3 Dog Leg top rail cover fit with zero sanding, grinding, or other modifications to the milled receiver or rear sight block. The top cover is rock solid. This is so solid it's ridiculous, and should hold zero (I haven't yet tested). I put a Primary Arms ADS red dot on it.

If I had one complaint, it's minor: the instruction manual. The black and white pictures are a bit difficult to see (they're small), and the steps aren't very detailed. But once I figured it out, no issues at all. I think a small improvement should be with the instructions, but honestly, if I can do it, anyone can, and that's why I didn't knock off a star in the review.

Amazing product, high quality, strong and durable, functional, and a solution to a problem I've had for far too long. Thanks TWS!
