brand new saiga .223 with crooked rear sight block

Recommended Posts

Had the same problem with mine. I had to push the front sight post awkawardly far to the right to correct. I swapped the rear sight leaf with an adjustable RPK rear leaf, and that help alot. A little to the left on the rear sight, and little to the right on the front sight and I was zeroed. Optics and red dots are great, but I would want irons too.

I also had this problem with a EAA Imported Saiga .223. It turned out the receiver was bent unevenly that transferred the crookedness to the trunion, rear sight block, and finally rear sight leaf. Went through hell with EAA and finally got it replaced with a new rifle. Beats putting a band-aid on the problem putting a rpk sight leaf on or moving your front sight way over to one side or the other. Just something else to check, it seems to be a rare problem and I was just unlucky.
