Already flipped through the Arfcom Guide. Alas I couldn't find anything on how to assemble the A1 rear sight assembly.



Anybody have a guide with VISUAL AIDS?

Thanks!

BTT.

I *think* I had it installed correctly but it didn't "feel" right. Have a few questions, bare with me I know how n00b they sound.

Leaf spring - like a bridge or curved downward
Apeture - facing away or towards

"and screw drive roll pin through to hold all together" is that little roll pin supposed to be so GD stiff? I mean getting that fu*** through was a bit**

damn these ar's

bridge

mine is pointed away, since there was an "L" for one of the ap. i figured it would face me so that i see it.

screw till it lines up with holes of the wind. wheel and then use some pliers to force them in. one end of the plier on the pin and the other on the other side of the wheel.

Excellent. Well I had the leaf spring wrong but that was it. Even using a punch as a guide that detent spring is a monster to jam in there. Will try again later. :)

I have been using a pair of pliers to squeeze the pin in instead of trying to drive it in. I ground the teeth off the pliers to keep from marring the finish on the wheel.
