The SM-13V is an improved design of the Arsenal SM-13. The new SM-13V is now compatible with all standard AK rifles with a side rail and VEPR rifles (with and without folding stocks). Not compatible with Century Arms RAS47 & C39V2 or Yugoslavian side rails.
This side-attaching scope mount for the AK variant rifles was born to meet and exceed the toughest objectives put in front of Arsenal, Inc. The one-piece CNC precision machined SM-13V is manufactured from aircraft grade aluminum alloy for the minimum weight (only 5.76 ounces) and maximum strength.
The over-7.5-inches-long Picatinny rail that runs along the rifle, from the end of the top cover to the rear sight leaf, allows for attaching multiple devices at the same time or one device for the maximum eye relief. The SM-13V follows the contour of the rifle closely. The absolute low profile and the relief cut along the rail allow the use of the iron sights even when the scope mount is attached to the rifle.
The SM-13V utilizes the time-proven steel adjustable locking mechanism that allows instantaneous attachment and release of the scope mount without any compromise to the accuracy and loss of zero. Unlike some other mounts that attach to unstable top covers or gas tubes, the SM-13V attaches to the side scope rail of an AK variant rifle, which provides the most stable attaching platform on the rifle.
