Problem with my Saiga AK

First time this has happened. Last shot after 40 rounds of my low-midrange power reloads, the bolt stuck closed. Turns out the sight block somehow tweaked over, causing it to stick.



As you can see the right side is making contact with the op rod. It doesn't appear to be bent, so not sure what to do at this point.

Delete, figured it out. Lead buildup in the gas block.
