View Full Version : AKM/AK47 Gunsmith

August 15, 1999, 10:29 PM
Anyone know a gunsmith who knows how to work on one of these? I picked up one of the Maadi MISR's and it appears the front sight (the whole thing, not just the post) is canted off to the left a couple of degrees. Haven't shot it yet, so we'll see if there is enough adjustment to compensate, but I may need to rotate it on the barrel a couple of degrees and repin it. Since a man should know his limitations, I'll send this to a smith.

Any suggestions?

Personal weapons are what raised mankind out of the mud, and the rifle is the queen of personal weapons. The possession of a good rifle, as well as the skill to use it well, truly makes a man the monarch of all he surveys.

Dorsai, I don't consider myself an AK expert but I do work on them. You can e-mail me if you like. George
