can anyone point me to instructions on installing a new front sight tower on an existing rifle? i need to know how to be sure gas ports are aligned, and how to drill the tapered pin holes to match an existing barrel. i'm replacing the front sight on a Colt flattop where someone has ground off the original tower. thanks for any assistance you can send my direction.

It takes alot of precision machining to do this, just so you know. A mill would be optimal, a solid drill press with a good vice may do in a pinch. Generally speaking, if you aren't machinistly inclined, it's not a DIY project.
