I started the DROS on a Saiga IZ 340 and I noticed that a pin was just finger tight in the front sight block. It appears to be the pin that retains the Spring and Plunger for the AK74 Muzzle device. Should this have a nut on the other side or how should it be retained?

On my surplus Bulgy front sight it is flat like yours on one side and the other side looks like its flared out. Iam guessing they just stuck your pin in and didnt flare the other side to retain it.
