First I want to apologize if anybody got any wrong ideas from the last post, which was admittedly a bit vague. Big Brother’s wife died last weekend after a long illness. BB spared me the drama of what was probably a drawn-out tragedy, so it came as a bit of a shock. Many years ago when I was in a hospital for months, BB wore himself out worrying over me and I could only try to imagine what this had put him through.
I tend to deal with that sort of thing by working outdoors. So while wading through a great deal of encrusted dirt I got the Jeep’s new driver seat installed…
Then, work done, it was time to play.
Took the AK out to the wash with a target and some tools and got it zeroed. Due to a bit of vagueness as to exactly how I was supposed to get the new rail parallel with the barrel, that took a while and quite a lot of fiddling and ammo. But now the bullets go where the red dot tells them to and everything is Locktited down.
I do need to come up with a fixed buttstock – I always liked the folder but it isn’t a lot of help with the raised optic. If I can’t scrounge one from one of Ian’s piles of old AK parts, I may end up carving one from palletwood or something.
