NcStar AK Top Cover Weaver Rail

The “Quartermaster” wishes all you Bloggers & Blog Readers a Happy & Prosperous New Year!

Now that we have got the “End of the World Apocalypse” safely out of the way, and you are wondering what to do with the 6 new AK’s that you have purchased for that very reason, well Don’t Panic!!! there is still a “Pandemic” or two coming up that you might need those AK’s for after-all……………….(well that’s what the idiots keep on telling us) And for that very reason the good folks at NcStar have come out with an AK accessory that I think that everyone that has an AK or 2, it’s going to be a “Must Have” piece of kit for one of their AK’s. Another reason is that this will fit, not only the AK47, but will fit the AK74, as well as most of the clones. What we are talking about here is the NcStar AK47 Top Cover Rail ~ W125 which is a normal AK top cover with a Weaver Rail permanently attached to the top of the cover…………….Brilliant!!! Now you can have a normal scope on your AK rather than a forward mounted Long-Eye-Relief Scope on the forend Quad Rail. Now you can turn your best AK into a medium range Sniper AK, with very little effort and (Bugger all) expense.

If you have checked out my last blog on the AK Dual Rail, Side Mount, which would be excellent set up with a Holo Sight & Laser Combo for a short range & CQB rifle, then on your 2nd AK you could set it up with a Top Cover Rail and a nice 3-9 vari power scope for a med range Sniper AK set-up……………….(Bring on the Pandemic!!!!!) or if you just want your AK’s set-up for the range, then these two combos would definitely do the trick. For more AK Tactical Set-up’s, Check out the Blog I did (about the 9th one from the start) which was all about the AK Front Forend Quad-rail, this is another top piece of kit that you could incorporate into your Tactical AK.

So what we have here is a Standard (Steel) AK Top Receiver Cover, with a Weaver/Picatinny Rail permanently attached to the top of the cover and 2 tightening screws at the back of the cover that can be tightened up to take up any slack or recoil movement, so that you have a rock solid platform to attach your optical accessories to. (There is No Excuse now for missing any Zombies on the prowl!!!)

A Very Happy AK Xmas from……………………….The “Quartermaster”








NcStar AK47 Side Mount Dual Rail

Hi to all you (Post Apocalyptic) Bloggers

Well today has dawned with clear blue skies, warm temperatures and a feeling of peace pervades. So bang goes the theory about the End of the World today it would seem!!! But just in case, the folks at NcStar have come up with a brand new product, (at long last) for your favorite AK……………. the NcStar AK47 Side Mount Dual Weaver Rail ~ W126. What this means is that now you can Scope-Up your AK with a Tactical Red Dot Holo Sight, or a short Tactical Series Scope, and because this rail is mounted up on the side of your receiver, it wont interfere with your Top Cover when you take it off to clean your bolt & barrel.

So the following blurb are my thoughts on what type of sight or scope is the right one for your AK47 Dual Rail, Side Mount. -

1) My 1st choice & personal preference if I was to set my AK up with some sort of optics would be to see whether I would be using it to shoot Zombies at 50 – 150 yds or to be shooting Zombies at 200 – 300 yds. Lets take the 1st option of 50 – 150 yds. I would definitely go for the “Both Eyes Open” Reflex or Holographic sight with a laser mounted up on the side weaver rail (for night time Op’s) This is a pretty good, day or night package for your AK………..or any other short carbine. You cannot beat the Reflex or Holographic Sight for Target Acquisition Speed and Peripheral Target Sighting as you have both eyes open at all times, and with Zombies at 50 yds…………… “Speed is definitely of the Essence” – as they say.

2) My 2nd choice & personal preference if I was setting my AK up for a longer range 200 – 300 yd Zombie shooter, would be to mount a short 2x – 7x or a 3x – 9x vari power, illuminated reticle Tactical Scope, with a preference for it being a Rubber Armoured scope. This combined with a Tactical Torch mounted on the side rail would make a good all round “Zombie Killer” rifle………………(They don’t like bright lights, I’m told) This combo would be great for those longish, take-your-time, aimed shots to the head, (the only way to kill Zombies, I hear) while also giving you the capability of  maneuvering at night with the aid of your flashlight.

This mount will slide onto most AK47′s & AK74′s that have a side rail permanently fixed to the side of the receiver, once it is in place it can be tightened up by 3 x allen key, grub screws so that you get a “Rock Solid” fit that wont move around under recoil. The top rail is long enough (at 5.24 in’s) to accommodate most full sized scopes and the height from the bottom of the slide on rail to the top of the top Weaver Rail is 3.55 in’s, which is high enough to be able to use your Iron Sights in an emergency. Now one of the nicest thing is that it only adds an extra 6.7 oz’s on to your rifles total weight. (plus whatever optics you decide upon)

So, all in all, these AK Scope Mounts are an item that every AK owner should have at least one or two in their kit, so that you can “Up-Skill” your rifle, which in turn will let you shoot more Zombies………………………LOL!!!

Happy Zombie Shooting…………………………The “Quartermaster”


NcStar 30x – 90x Spotting Scope

A Happy, Happy Xmas to all you Bloggers

Yes that special time is almost upon us………………(and I don’t mean Zombie Land and the End of the World!!!)  It’s the time of “Good Cheer, Good Food, Good Friends, and Good Prezzies” and it’s this last item that I want to talk about, it’s something to tuck under the Xmas Tree. And Santa………(Aka – The Quartermaster) has got plenty of them in stock ……….. Ooooop’s I meant in my Slay. You guessed it………….. It’s the “MOTHER” of all Spotting Scopes. This baby is BIG!!! (This is what people in High Rise Apartments use to spy on their neighbors) The NcStar 30-90×90 Spotting Scope ~ P21. If you are into BIG GEAR, then this is the spotting scope for you. When you bring out this spotting scope at the range, your competitors will know you mean serious business.

Lets check out a few of the good features on this Big Spotting Scope -

1) Did I mention “BIG”…….. This baby is over 20 inches long with a huge 90mm front lens that will give you a 78ft (@ 30x power) – 33ft (@ 90x power) field of view at 100 yds.

2) Did you hear me mention “BIG”???………..It comes with a Full Standing Height, Fully Adjustable, Tripod, with independent adjustment on each leg for uneven surfaces, and will adjust in height from 22.0 inches up to 55.0 inches high, and yet – only weighs 54.3 oz

3) Let me tell you, this is “BIG”………..With High Quality, Precision Ground, Multi-coated Lens for maximum crisp,clear, images and a variable magnification from 30x up to a whopping – 90x power.

4) What did I tell you – it’s “BIG”……….And it’s got all the extra “Gizmo’s” that you need, like an External Quick Focus Knob, a built-in Sliding Sunshade, Lens Covers for the front and back Lens, and a Soft Carry Case.

5) This is “ONE BIG MOTHER!!!!”……….. One of the great features that I like is that the outer surface is covered in a Protective, Rubber Armoured Coating, that will take the Knocks and Bumps of the battlefield and still give you a crisp, clear picture.

All this for only 58.2 oz in weight or 112.5 oz with the Tripod included is not a bad deal, don’t you think??????? Now this is Not the type of gear that I would like to “Hump the Boonies” with, but certainly for setting up in one place and using it to check your bullet holes in the Zombies heads at 800 mtrs. This is definitely the Spotting Scope to have.

Happy Spotting………………………..The “Quartermaster”

Vism Foldable 4 Panel Shooting Mat

A Happy Festive Greeting to all you Bloggers out there.

Today’s Blog is all about something very simple…………. The “Vism Foldable 4 Panel Shooting Mat ~ W107. Now you might say………….”What the Hell do I want a Shooting Mat for?????”  Well lets take a look at a few ideas about this. Everyone that owns a rifle at some time (or time’s) likes to seriously check out the “Zero Point” on their rifle, and to do this you need to get your rifle in a stable position 1st. And what better way than to lie down prone with the front of your rifle, either on a sand bag or with a bipod on your barrel. Not everyone has access to a tailor made bench rest. So………….If you are at a rifle range, or out on a farm, or just out in the bush, I can pretty much guarantee that where you “plonk” your body down, wont be a patch of lush, flat, soft, newly cut lawn. No, No, No, most likely it wont be dead flat, it wont be soft, it wont be that clean, it wont be at all comfortable, and usually there’s Bugger All lawn, AND I haven’t even mentioned about getting wet. About this time you will be saying to yourself…………….”I wish I had bought a mat or a sack, or something to lay on” ……………… Does this sound familiar???????

Well, you can “Rest Easy” now – (pardon the pun)………..Have we got the DEAL for you, so to speak. If you are going to go to the trouble of taking some sort of mat out with you to lay on, why not check out the Vism Foldable 4 Panel Shooting Mat ~ W107 . This has got soooooo many things going for it, that I just have to tell you about them. -

1) The MOST important one is that it folds up to a compact – 18 in’s high x 36 in’s long x 2 1/2 in’s thick and only weighs a mere 6.2 Lbs……..Fantastic!!!

2) This mat unfolds out to a LARGE – 72 in’s long x 36 in’s wide x 1/2 in thick mat, Large enough to accommodate you and your gear, and keep you dry

3) It has a Reinforced Carry Handle as well as a Padded Shoulder Strap for slinging across your shoulder leaving your hands free to carry your rifle.

4) The outside shell is constructed from Heavy Duty Nylon PVC fabric that will last a lifetime. A quick wipe down with a damp cloth is all it takes to keep it looking good.

5) The top side has Non-Slip Elbow and Knee Surfaces to help you hold your position steady for that super accurate shot, and stops you slipping under recoil.

6) The mat has Molle-Pals Webbing on the top panel to hold the Zippered, Clear Plastic, Ballistic, Chart Holder, so you can check your written ballistics at a glance.

7) Now here’s a nice touch – you get 4 x Metal “D” rings (one on each corner) so that you can peg your mat down on windy days with tent pegs…….Very Thoughtful!!!

8) I’ve saved the BEST till last…….. “COMFORTABLE” with 1/2 in. of Closed Cell Foam Padding that wont absorb water and will keep you warm on a cold ground.

Oh! and one other thing……….. you can purchase one of these “Top Notch” shooting mats off us in any colour you like as long as it’s BLACK!!!………..LOL.

Happy Shooting as Always………………………………….The “Quartermaster”
