I was ready to buy a gas block with a bayonet lug on there when I noticed the dimensions on the current gas block. This is a Romanian Intrac model with the appropriate amount of U.S. parts.

The gas block looks like it never was cut in order to make the "ears" for the lug. It is 1/2 inch wide.

Instead of buying another gas block could I just take measurement from the kit I'm going to buy and dremmel this into the appropriate shape?

I finally got the pics the right size.

As long as you have enough "meat" under the cleaning rod then I say "go for it". You were considering buying a new gas block anyway, so if you screw it up then just go ahead and get your new piece. I personally wouldn't hesitate to hack away at any of my AKs with a dremel.

What is the width of the bayonet lug "ears"? Is it 1/2 inch?

I measure .472" on one of my Romanians.

The .472 is it the measurement where it has been ground or are you talking about the width of the bayonet ears. My question is basically what is the width I need to achieve where I'll be doing the grinding.

.472 is the ears. The narrow part is .355. The thickness of the wide part is .115. If you know what I mean.

Thanks, that is exactly what I needed to know.
