    fixing ak47 front sight

    So a few years ago I bought this ak47; it's a mahdi out of egypt. Decent quality. Except the previous owner messed the **** out of the front sight. So the gun is terribly inaccurate. Therefore, I do not shoot it much. However, with the coming zombie apocalypse, I felt it was necessary to revive said gun for optimum head-shottage. After all, those rotting cabbage-heads won't stop without a good head shot.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Basically the front sight is all cockeyed (about 5 deg) and is completely worthless. I'll admit, I'm a good shooter but a terrible gunsmith lol so I'm sure this is simple but hell if I know how to fix it.

    On an aside, I bought this gun around 8-9 years ago, before I know a goddamn thing about shooting.

    The last time I saw this problem it was fixed using a padded vise and a hammer. A gunsmith might be able to do it a little more gently, though.
    I'm not giving you my opinion, I'm telling you how it is.
    Can't decide which evil black rifle to buy? My thoughts.

    It would depend if you had an AK with a removable front sight. Many come with special wrenches that you can use to remove the front sight post and simply replace it with one that is straight. This is of course...all dependant upon the manufacturer. Sometimes, you get a crappy AK with a welded pin that serves as a front sight....and you're mostly screwed. Take it to a gunsmith or armorer and they'll likely try to use vice-grips and a small hammer to bang it somewhat straight.

    Thanks man, I'll check it tonight. If it's just a screw, that'll be good. Otherwise I know a few gunsmiths who can help.
