    Another question from the king of ignorance :D

    I've got a little cheapo scope on my AK that's easy enough to sight in, but I can't figure out how to adjust the windage on my iron sights... Someone told me it might all be in the front sight post, but I'm not exactly sure what that entails... Can anyone enlighten me?

    There are AK/SKS sight adjustment tools available for this purpose.

    Sometimes the sight can be stuck and needs some WD-40, other times it needs a torch - I'll let others with more knowledge chime-in on the appropriate remedies for these challenges.

    Use a small drop of penetrating oil on each side of the front sight before trying to move it. Breakfree CLP works well......................elsullo
