Recommended Posts

..pinned on front sight block and gas block. so I would like to do the  front end conversion to add the lower handguard retainer so i can run wood furniture. any advice on where to get the new gas block and front sight block, also since the stock ones are only pinned on can i hit them off with a rubber mallet and install the new ones the same way?

Rifle Dynamics has the complete FSB. As far as getting the old ones off, it would be much easier to press them off or use a bearing puller to pull them off.

You don't need to cut it if it's just pinned on.

 

After I drilled the dimples on my FSB and GB, I used a vise and a brass punch.

I had to redo the FSB on my 5.45 the other day, so I took a pic of how I do it.

 

Remove the pins, or drill the dimples that hold it on, then put the barrel in a vise just loose enough that it doesn't actually grab. Then I heated the FSB a little bit with a propane torch and put the brass punch on the muzzle and gave it a few decent whacks.

 

Not the ideal way to do it but it works. My muzzle crown is fine, and it's my most accurate saiga. (about 2" at 100 yards)
