AKARS by LithoCoreX
AK Adaptive Rail System
Made in the United States of America


Originally known as the AK Adaptive Rail System Parabellum Armament-001 (AKARS PA-001 for short), the system was designed by Christopher F. Mitro and patented on October 15, 2010. It was created to replace the rear sight leaf and the receiver cover on the AK-47 rifle and its variants to provide a stable platform for the attachment of optics and accessories.

Unfortunately, there was an acrimonious end to the relationship between Parabellum Armament and Chris Mitro who went on tour in Iraq soon after release of the product, but was never paid promised royalties after his return.

Subsequently, the system was purchased by LithoCoreX, which retains the exclusive right to produce this solution. The PA nomenclature was removed and the AKARS name kept.


AKARS effectively eliminates the AK’s traditional accessory mounting limitations. Once installed, the system allows the user to attach weapon optics utilizing the 1913 Picatinny rail (MIL-STD-1913) as a mounting solution, while also retaining the optic's targeting zero after extensive firing and field stripping of the weapon.

Furthermore, the device allows for the of use iron sights as a secondary targeting solution by way of the built-in rear sight aperture on the AKARS rail adapter component.

The following is included in this package:

  • AKARS receiver cover
  • AKARS rail adapter
  • Hex keys and Loctite 222MS
  • Installation instruction booklet
Important Notes: 1) Fits most Warsaw pact pattern rifles. Does not fit the Yugoslavian AK's and 50% of Chinese origin AKs, and 2) this is the licensed LithoCoreX version.
