I have a slant muzzle break I am going to put on a ak rifle after I thread the barrel. I noticed the notch for the retaining pin on the break itself is offset from the vertical by about 20 degrees. I looked at the replacement front sight bases at v-var (my sight base does not have a retaining pin hole) and they have the detent hole for the retaining pin right in the middle of the front sight, at vertical. If I put my brake on that front sight setup it would not be horizontal, it would be canted. I looked at various ak pictures on this site and all the slant break pics show them at horizontal. What gives?

Are there different detent plunger/retainer locations on front sight posts?
Should I not worry about getting the retainer/plunger setup done and just red locktite the break on?

The slant brake should be at an angle. It is designed to counter act the recoil of the rifle climbing up to the right in full auto.
