Well, I finally un-Klintonized my '99 SAR-1. Installed a Romanian Gas Block and threaded the barrel. When I snap the bayonet on, it's about 1/4" from the fron sight block, and the brake only threads on about 2 turns. Are different countries Bayonet's slightly different? Maybe I have a bad example of quality control?
thanks in advance,
Tim

A quarter inch is about right. That's about what I have on my rifle. Also an SAR1 with Romy gas block and Hungarian bayo.

Are you using the slant brake?

My barrel is threaded all the way to the gas block, with a thread or two under it. Sent it to an AK smith and that's how he said it should be done. I did shorten my plunger by a bit after I got the rifle back. Now when I push it all the way in it's flush with the sight base. Before it stuck out too far. I gained about two turns with shortening it.

Where can I get a bayonet lug for a 2002 SAR-1?

You need to get a new gas block with an intact bayo lug.

I got mine at K-Var about a month or so before the ban expired.
