At last week’s Big 3 East fall event, RS Regulate unveiled its new AKMT mount for the Trijicon MRO.

The AKMT is the first and only mount designed specifically to allow a shooter to attach Trijicon’s new red dot sight to AK-pattern rifles and pistols equipped with side rails.

The AKMT attaches to RS Regulate’s AK-300 series of lower mounts, allowing the user to place the optic at their desired front-to-back position. The AKMT upper can also placed in an exact over-bore position using a lower’s 0.25 inches of side-to-side adjustment. It will weigh in at less than one ounce.

The low height of the AKMT allows the shooter to use the MRO while maintaining a comfortable cheekweld.

Like all other RS Regulate optic mount components, the AKMT will be made of 6061-T6 aluminum and hardcoat anodized. It will sell for around $70 and should be shipping to distributors in a month.

The MRO dot will not cowitness with AK iron sights due to the optic’s overall height. Despite this, when paired with the AKMT I found the MRO to sit low enough on the gun to facilitate fast and accurate shots while maintaining a comfortable cheekweld. The MRO’s wide field of view and long battery life make it a perfect choice for shooters looking for a fast, light optic for their AK.
