I tried to search for this topic but came up empty. 

I have a AK-47 with a red dot mounted above the gas tube. It works well but is not ideal for longer shots .........or at least attempts. I found a scope that is 2-7 that looks right down the center of the red dot and mounts over the dust cover. 

Forgive the ignorance of the following questions but here it goes.  

Would this be a wise setup/system ? Having the red dot for close shots and being able to add the scope when far shots are needed ? Can the red dot be let on and used or will it be off? 


Be kind its my first post :)

Welcome to OpticsTalk! Howdy
I cannot say that it would be wise, but that is from a mechanical stand point.
The dust cover replacements are a crude manufacturing process, and because of the mechanical funcationality, you will see your point of impact will shift.
One this you could do, since you would like to have the best of both worlds...magnification and a red dot, is you can use GG&G mount with a Burris Fast Fire. Seen here.
Is this going to be a pig gun?
