    Polar... I know what you mean (from other sight-ins). I can live with it the way it is for close-in "animals" but I'm afraid of the 100 yarders until I can get to the outdoor. Still, I believe a true-as-can-be-made zero is the thing to have.

    Be careful with that sledge ;)

    Once you get them broke loose they useally move easier. They get stuck from years of crud or rust, dry cosmoline

    Default Sometimes...

    it is useful - and really nice - when a new friend discloses his past history as a firearms "person" - and particularly one with a reasonable background in AK/SKS front sights. :)

    I held, he "tapped" and it did give up and move. We'd removed the FS post to ensure we didn't bend anything and after breaking loose, tapped it out and away. Examination showed a bit of rust and a small burr near the threads. Cleaned, de-horned, installed and eye-ball aligned. Only thing left is to - once again - do a range zero.

    A learning experience, for sure. Took maybe ten minutes total.

    Once again, thank you all for your learned input - I've never banged on a gun before... They are hardy, aren't they?

    >>>Can you really apply enough torque on the B-Square sight pusher to move the drum? It does not look any more robust than the Tapco tool (which did not work for me).<<<

    Note that the TapCo adjustment tool has a very tight tolerance on the off side hole for the drum to slide into. The cutout for the opposite side of the drum from where you push is so tight on mine that I have to tap it off after adjusting the sight. Given the tight specs some of you may be pushing the drum against the opposite side of the adjustment tool and not INTO the hole. I envision that in some cases the hole on the adjustment tool may actually be smaller than the sight drum.

    If you already have a sight adjust tool that is not working for you, try enlarging the recess/hole on the opposite side of the pusher to allow more room for the drum to move into.

    “…Subjection in minor affairs breaks out everyday and is felt by the whole community indiscriminately. It does not drive men to resistance, but it crosses them at every turn until they are led to surrender the exercise of their own will and soon become incapable of exercising the great and only privilege which remains to them...The consequences are that they (Rights) are often sacrificed without regret and almost always violated without remorse."

    Had the same problem. My solution was to place a spacer--a washer or wrench--between the tool and the front sight base. The drum slides into the space made available by the washer, and you don't have to worry about whether the cutout in the tool is actually the right size. Worked like a charm for me--no hammers or punches required, and I was able to sight in at the range pretty quick.

    I spent the $17 on the tool. Got it at a gun show.

    It's simple, easy, and works. Lastly, AK's reproduce in the household over time, making the tool more worth it's money.

    I say just get the tool and save yourself the heartache.

    Any ideas for this problem; My front sight is all the way to the left, the gun still shoots 4" left at 25 yards..... If it was'nt so friggin cold today I would have thought of using the sight hood as a sight. I was thinking of heating the thin part of the FSB with a torch and bending it to the right.

    I was down at the Mosque going through a few magazines.
    I was having a good time.
    Then, my rifle jammed.
