    Some AK's have canted front sights.

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

    Mark is correct this is common with Romanian rifles it doesn't take much and it may not be visable to the eye. The best way to check is to remove mag and set the front of the reciever on the edge of a table then put a framing square next to the front sight, if it's canted you will see it compared to the square, also check the rear sight block as they can be canted as well.

    If the sights are aligined then you may need to re-crown the barrel.
    hope this helps

    A small gear puller will move the site; because the gear puller (two prong) will pull off both sides of the hood you get a straight push instead of putting a side twist on a "C" clamp devise and trying to drive the site at an angle.

    Jim,

    With the B-Square you are talking about, would you need:

    http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpag...eitemid=336763

    to make vertical adjustment?

    or is it built into it?

    As it seems to be on this one:

    thanks for your help

    There is a cheap tool out there that is designed to do this but twice I've tried to use one and they just bent both times. There is a good tool made by B-square that works here's the link, http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpag...eitemid=623495

    Dino,

    The tool that is sold at One Source will do windage and elevation, the one you linked from Midway will only do elevation. If your sight windage has not been moved before you may have a hard time moving it, go back to the beginning of this thread and read through it, there's some good info on how to move one that is stuck.

    I have used a Harbor Freight 12 ton press with the Tapco tool as a support to the sight assembly to get a stuck front sight to move. That way no banging with a sledge and reduced mayhem potential.

    I have the tool from Lancaster. It works fine on my Polish AK. Certainly not as nice as the click adjustable sights on many rifles, but with a little trial and error, it will work.
