    The way i fix them is to tske the pins out, align the front and rear sight blocks with my algent tools then drill and ream the pin holes for oversized pins to keep it in its new location

    I don't know what "straten" means, straighten is similar sounding. I wonder if it has the same meaning?

    Marty,
    I have at least one of those canted Century AK's too. Will you let me know if you have any luck finding somebody to do it locally?

    $5/hour. Fortunately, it's not a Mutlnomah County position, otherwise it would be $15/hour.
