Dumb question, taking apart my front sight on my mak 90. Got the front sight post out, and not sure how to put it back in (just had to use that new toll to see how it works!). I don't want to strip it putting it back in. Do I just add pressure? The post itself is "split" up the middle 3/4 of the way up from the bottom, which looks like it would cause pressure on the post while it was in. It dosen't seem like it will go "right in". Am I missing some trick? I just don't want to strip any threads due to ignorance. Any help would be thankful.

Figured it out. Just got "freaked", still have to clean some other guns, and I hate leaving a gun apart at the end of the night! thks

Squeeze the split shut with pliers while you start screwing the post in. You've learned a lesson, after you manage to get it back in, you'll never want to remove it again! [;)]
