Help! Took brand-new SAR-1 to range today. Shot to the right and I bent the TAPCO windage tool (!) and it still hasn't budged. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
MR2

IIRC...

some had crooked sights, and if you said it's 'new' ?

Call Century, they'll probably fix it for free.

Thanks for replies. That's exactly what I did, use sockets. Only I adapted a steering wheel puller, 'cause I didn't have a vise big enough. Someone else recommended the B-Square tool but looking at their website and remembering the torque I had to put on that puller with a medium-size ratchet, I doubt the B-Square was hefty enough for the job either. More money down the tube. Nice thing about the puller is I also used it to bend the TAPCO tool back in shape.

I was hoping that having broken the drum loose, I would then be able to use the TAPCO tool. No deal. The drum still requires the puller/socket juggling act even after I completely pushed out the tool and handsanded it with #400 for a couple of minutes.

This is one hands-on, audience-particpation "some-'smithing-required" gun.

Regards,
MR2
