My Maddi's front sight is canted waay left when the front sight post is centered in the drum and rounds hitting center target. Have you seen this before? I think the problem is with the rear sight block but am not sure. I don't want to redrill and pin the front sight in place now because it looks really crooked. What can I do to fix this?

Thanks for your help

The sight was vertical when I bought it, BUT the front sight post was all the way left for it to hit on target and it just didn't look right, so i took your advice and knocked out the pins, centered the drum, knocked the sight over a bit with a mallet and test fired before redrilling, now the windage is right but I don't want to re-pin it when its leaning over this bad. And no Campy I haven't brought it to a smith yet, I would rather do my AK the WECSOG way[:\]!(i'll leave the gunsmith for my finer firearms, like my AR)

I know I shoudn't be worrying over AK cosmetics but it jus' kinda bothers me.

Thanks

Does one have to remove the front sight and gas block to remove the rear sight block, or does it jus' lift off?

Thanks
