SkS Sight adjustment tool.
« on: June 22, 2018, 01:26:29 AM »
I have 3 sight adjustment tools and none of them will fit through the top hole to adjust the front sight to raise or lower.. Anyone know where I can buy one ? Thinking I might just grind one down but rather just buy the right one that works..

I use a A/C schrader valve tool to adjust the front post, I thinks valve core tool for tires works too. 

I got a Snap-On one so when I break it, I get it replaced free. Unlike those wonder tools off fleabay for sights.
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

I like the ones that fit inside the cleaning kit.  You use the punch tool to slide through the hole for the 'T' handle.  I also have a few like this with their own little pivoting handle attached.

I use the Arsenal Inc. front sight tool, fits my SKS with room to spare.

I bought mine when I found out the front post on my WASR was stuck, I broke two cheap tools after letting the front post soak in penetrating oil for a week. The Arsenal got it out. It twisted the post til it was useless, but it came out.

I think I got mine from Apex gun parts years ago but Ive seen them at Midway USA & Cheaper than Dirt as well.

Magna Matic also makes a nice AK sight tool that adjusts the windage drum as well but not sure if the part that moves the post will clear the hooded SKS sight. Ive not had to fiddle much with windage and when I did, a socket & C clamp did the trick.

Go ahead and laugh  :)  but..... I also do have a handmade elevation tool.. 15 minutes, 2 spring roll pins, a touch of weld and cut a groove and I can adjust'em all day. If'en I break it..15 minutes and 2 roll pins later, I'll have a new one, no shipping, no waiting around and no butt hurt when my special tactical $19.99 tool breaks. I've used this one at home and work for years with no issues.  Dual purpose tool, I can pull schrader valves out of a/c systems and adjust Ak/SKS sights.




Even made a weed eater/chain saw carb adjusting tool from a 17hmr casing. Them weird serrated tapered screws with no notch are a pain to tweak without something to grip them good. The 17hmr casing grips them perfect....  Wonder if the EPA or CARB will certify it.... rofl2


Hillbilly engineering.... :)

I'll even dolly you up one with a little loop for your key chain... that way when you sit on it accidentally, you can think....."OH!!! OUCH!!!! that GM is such a pain in my arse" rofl2 chuckles1

How do I know CARB over here on the left coast... truck emission devices, DPF, DEF and oxidation catalysts oh my, trailer aerodynamic fairings, a 1 to a million 2 stroke mixes, tier 2, 3 and 4 engines, low rolling resistance tires that get no traction... surprised one can even smoke there, or they have a catalytic converter in the cig filter.. rofl fart1

Besides...it rhymes oh so nicely with... TARD!!! rofl2

All SkS owners need  a C-13 sight adjustment tattoo on their pocket  thumb1.. I went to the range with the first SkS I ever bought in 1990 and shes shooting high and my tool wouldnt fit so wasted trip. But I could almost swear a few years ago I used the same tool on a M59 or Romy and it worked  :-\   Were get it : )
