I used the kitchen "formica" counter top to square up the front sight. A living room glass table top works well, too. You want to do this as best you can BEFORE tapping it all the way home, as it will probably not budge, due to the barrel taper. Of course if you can gain access to a steel or granite layout table, by all means, do so. By the time I was finished here, that sight was a lot straighter than when drunk monkeys in Romania put the original one on canted!

Picture


Clamp the rifle down and tap the new sight on using a rubber mallet, or a metal hammer with scrap wood to protect the sight from scratches. I tapped the SAR sight on with the mallet (Not in the picture - Thorgul), right on the threads. They're robust enough to take it, but you may want to do it as shown in the picture. Constantly check sight alignment as you go.

Picture


Clamp the rifle down, CAREFULLY line up and square the rifle barrel and front sight assembly parallel to the drill press base plate. Support it with a piece of scrap wood. Use the starter holes to drill the cross pin holes with a #31 drill bit. Go easy! These bits are fragile, and you don't want to break a bit off in the hole.

Picture


After you've drilled the first hole, use the .124 reamer to ream the hole before readjusting to drill the second hole.

Picture


Lightly tap in the .125 hardened dowel pins most of the way. use a drift punch to send them completely home.
