I've got a Busmaster AK Shorty ordered. I plan to mount an Aimpoint Comp XD red dot sight on this rifle. I want to have the option of using either the scope or iron sights at all times. I plan to use this rifle for defensive purposes and informal target shooting at ranges of 20 to 100yds.
Being new and totally unfamiliar w/ this type rifle, I would like experienced opinions on what scope mount would serve my needs the best.

While expensive, I'd consider the Aimpoint forward mount with Quick Release Mount. That way, you'll be freely able to choose between red dot or iron sights.

Actually, the Aimpoint Scout Mount is quite inexpensive ($65 or so) compared to the ARMS mount. Just add a GGG mount ring with the spare battery compartment and you're good to go.
