Hey JS-M1A.

Got a Mak-90 and looking to do the exact same thing. E-mail me when you find out who and how to do all you listed. I would like to go halfers to get my Mak-90 done the same way.

Am also in N. Cal.

Just do it yourself with one of these...

http://preciseinnovationsllc.com/old...eadingkits.htm

If you are doing a Chinese, make sure the diameter is within the spec to thread. If I remember, the Chicom barrels were a little thicker than a Romy or Hungarian. Might need to take off a few thousandths. Use lots of oil and go slow. The tool that goes with the die makes it a no brainer.


Or, a gunsmith will charge you about $25 to $30 to do the same thing.

Good luck

Thank you. Half way there. Now I just have to find the correct
Front sight base. I emailed polytechparts no reply as of today.

Sounds good. I`m scouring the net looking for the correct
Front sight base. No luck with polytech parts so far.
It looks like the euro pattern Ak`s have different sizes
Between the front sight pins than Chicom Ak`s.
I may buy a Romanian front sight base to see if it fits.
I don`t have any romanian parts to compare.
Maybe someone here with romanian parts kit
Could post the pin measurement on the front
Sight base ?

It's 1/2" between the pins on a Romy. Norinco had 3/4" between the pins. You could put an E.German front site block on. These guys sell them.
