OK guys,

Just picked up my first AK at the gun show this weekend. Gotta say I love it, even though liberals all over the country are perishing just from looking at the gun.

Being an AK Noob, I had a question about the FSB. On mine, there is a flip up iron that obscures the post. It has a small indent. Is this intended to be a night sight with some type of tritium paint applied in the indentation??

Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

BTW, I bought it on Saturday and we went out on Sunday to break it in. Pics here starting bottom p.6

From the other thread:



That's a Yugoslavian rifle, sir, not a Romanian WASR. The flip-up sights are the grenade launger sights. (Not sure if they're supposed to have tritium or not.)

There should be night sights on the front and rear sites. They flip up. They have just a little white dot that glows. The large sight is a gas cutoff and launcher sights.

Thanks guys. I thought that the sight on the gas block was the grenade site. And was pretty sure that the flip up was a night sight, but it didn't have any paint on the dot so I wasn't sure. Anyway, here is a close up of what I was talking about.

1/2 way up.

Thanks again.

Nice score. That's much nicer than a WASR. Excellent buy!
