What is fair pricing or the going rate for a competent 'smith to correct canted gas block, FSB, and readjust front sight? Weapon is NIB. Any help appreciated.

if you bought it recently from a dealer, send it back to whoever built it, CENTURY, ARSENAL etc.. and have them fix it.

Follow the above advice. Contact the builder or the vendor you purchased the rifle from and ask for an exchange or have the problem fixed

Send it back to Romania and get a Bulgarian instead.

i know the Firing Line in OK charges $100 to change both GB and FSB on an AK. i dont know if it will be less just to adjust them but he does good work and is someone you can trust with your favorite AK, not just someone that can do it but never really works on them. do you feel comfortable driving out the pins and tapping it over with a piece of wood and a hammer? i have heard of people fixing the FSB cant like this, i have never tried it.

Forget about the high lighted. They don't care. Been there, tried that.... Forget about Krebs also, been there done that and they didn't fix it.

I know how to fix it, but the rifle is a few hundred miles away. I'm just trying to get fair price range for the work, so I can send some money out.
