How to Fix a Canted AK 47 Front Sight
I’m VERY surprised that there are not more DIY tutorials or videos on how to fix a canted front sight for AK 47 variants. From what I understand, many manufacturers ship AKs that have the front sight canted too much to one side and is not plumb. The result is that you have a severely skewed front post, or a front post that cannot be zeroed at all (which is what mine was).
Sure you can spend $75+ for a gun smith to do the work for you, but you can do it yourself for free (minus tools). Watch this super easy tutorial.
