View Full Version : What's the fix for canted front sight?

I got a SAR 1 the other day and it has the dreaded front sight canted to one side problem. Just wondering what you guys do to fix this problem. The gun is shooting about a foot to the left at about fifty yards. :mad_small
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There's a fix posted on the Romanian AK site, but they are changing servers this weekend and were down. The best fix is to punch out the 2 pins holding the sight base in place, turn it and move it forward or back a bit, and redrill the barrel to accept the pins in the new location. They may have a simpler fix.
Is your gas block aligned? that can cause problems with functioning if it is canted also.

the b.i.y. forum over on the ak side of ar15.com has the fix procedure tacked in a thread up top.
