The MI AK Light & Laser Mount as shown on the photos from Midwest Industries looks to fit right at home just ahead of the handguards, although it should be able to mount anywhere on the barrel that isn’t already claimed by the front sight and gas block. The specs above also mention that the mount can be faced in either direction. The AK Light & Laser Mount is listed for $69.95 on Midwest Industries’ dedicated page.
