Occam Power Solutions Company For the AK Front Sight Tower Win

    Occam Power Solutions, as the name implies, is a typical small company. Offering battery management systems, they have been expanding into the defense market with two products – one fitting their MO (a remote ballistic fuse detonator) and the other product being nearly the complete opposite, in fact lacking any power at all: the Rear Sight Tower for the AK-47

    Occam’s Razor States:

    Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.” 

    Or, even more detailed:

    “…entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities.”

    Basically, the simplest solution if often the best. In this case, Occam Defense Solutions has perhaps a simplest solution for the AK platform. The Rear Sight Tower simply does away with the graduated rear sight and instead replaces it with a milled rear sight and a picatinny rail. The milled sight is fully capable of being zeroed, though without adjustment.

    Simply, they are making the simple weapon simpler.

    Unfortunately, no pricing has yet been published for the Rear Sight Tower. Generally speaking, the product is oriented towards manufacturer’s who will have the presses needed to install and remove rear sight towers.
