NcStar AK/SKS Front Sight Tool

Hi all you Bloggers

First off I must thank all of the Bloggers who have taken the time to post a positive comment about my blog on my website……………………… Much appreciated.

Today’s Blog is all about an essential “Tool” that could save you much time and “cursing & swearing” for those of you who (like me!) love Russian Guns. My Motto is : “Give me an AK anyday!” Most AK’s and SKS’s come out more or less sighted in, but you occasionally get one that shoots to the left or the right because the front sight is too far over one way or the other. In this case what we used to do is lay the rifle onto it’s side and get hold of a punch and a hammer, and proceed to give the sight pin a “Belt” (In other words……. a tap on the punch with the hammer)

This usually did one of 2 things. – In the 1st instance, if the sight pin was not too tight or rusted in, the Damm pin would slide way too much over, in which case you had to turn the rifle over and proceed to tap it back the other way. (cursing just a little bit) After that it was………… Tap…… Shoot…….. Tap…….. Shoot…….. Tap…….. Shoot…… until you got your bullet holes in line with your sights. This could take just a wee while or a long time, dependent on how vigorous you were at “Tapping” and how easy the pin slid across. (and hopefully no one was shooting back at you at the time.)

In the 2nd instance, if the sight pin had been pressed in by a 100 ton press and rusted in there as well…………….. Guess What?????  You can be “Tapping” away all day and the (Bloody!) pin wont move………………………. (cursing just a little bit.) So we up the ante, we start tapping it a bit harder………………… Still no (Bloody!) movement. (Dont laugh, I’ve actually been there and done that) Well this time we really up the ante, we give it a “Belt” and the pin slides right the way across to the other side…………… (a bit more cursing & some swearing taking place now) Turn the rifle over and proceed to do the same again……………………. (air turning Blue now)………………. Do you get the picture here??? I could go on. So all in all this process could take some time, and we haven’t even got to the shooting stage yet.

This is where the Folks at NcStar come in with their innovative Front sight tool ~ W51. Boy!!! this takes the grief out of adjusting your front sight. All you need to do is slide it onto your AK or SKS front sight and wind the screw in, which pushes the sight pin across to where you want it…………………… No Fuss, No Mess, No Time Wasted………………. Job Done!!!!!!! How Easy is That????? In fact if you show your wife this Blog she will probably buy you one for your birthday.

Check them out on our website under “Accessories”…………………………. Happy Shooting!!!
