I can reassemble it all fine EXCEPT for one small part.... The lever on the rear sight block that you click up to unlock the gas cylinder. I can't figure out how to get it back down. I can put the gas cylinder back in, but the lever stays up, I can keep the lever down, but the gas cylinder won't click back into place! I have tried forcing the lever down once the cylinder/top handgaurd are locked in, but it doesn’t budge with a significant amount of force, which leads me to believe that that is not the proper way to do it. I don't want to break anything so any info would be appreciated, thanks!

The gas tube fits into a slot in the rear sight base. In this position the drum can rotate and lock it down. It will be parallel to the barrel when completely down.

GP-WASR 10/63 ??

If Yes, the rough black paint on the gas tube needed a little polishing. (the sloping part of the tube)

Before I broke my WASR in, it did this a lot. Just use the head of a screwdriver and tap it into place with a hammer if you need to. Or a little oil around the lever will help.

Once the gas-tube assembly is seated, the lever should be sticking straight up, and needs to be forced counter-clockwise towards the receiver until it pops into place.

this would not be a bulgarian would it?

you really need to beat the handguard back in for it to set all the way in sometimes. then you can use the small lever to lock it in place

I AGREE WITH TacticalOpsAR SOMTIMES THE UPPER HANDGUARD /GAS TUBE NEEDS TO BE BUMPED DOWN IN PLACE I USE THE PALM OF MY LEFT HAND TO FORCE IT IN PLACE. ALL MINE SNAP RIGHT IN WITH A VERY LIGHT BUMP
