a) It’s an AK. There’s a simple way to do it.
b) 10,000 geeks on youtube are panting to bend your ear about it. Approx 90% are full of shit.
Therefore, when looking for an AK procedure on youtube, initially disregard all those involving more than a 2-pound hammer. But don’t completely dismiss the possibility that hammers will become involved at some point. Because it’s an AK.
I wanted to replace the rear sight on the World’s Ugliest Carbine with a rail. This is not as simple as it looks if you’re not strong like Andre the Giant. I got it done, but hammers were (gently) involved.
While looking at many red-dot sights on Amazon I got to wondering how much laser boresights cost these days. Turns out a very simple one (turn it on by inserting the batteries) is reasonable if not as cheap as a kitten-toy pointer.
So with the red dot turned on and a frickin’ laser beam coming out the end of the barrel, I could dial the sight in to minute of bedroom wall in no time.
Tomorrow I’ll set up a paper target and pop some caps. Still getting over some back issues today.
