Hello everybody, I have an Arsenal SAM7K in here that Im trying to straighten the front sight block on. I tried putting it in a barrel vise and straightening it while on the barrel and it seemed like it was stuck too much for that. I then tried to use my 12 ton shop press to press the barrel out of the fsb and its stuck so tight that it just presses the fsb into the blocks that are holding it there and eventually, the entire apparatus just slips out. Is there something Im missing? are these a special case? Are they soldered on or something? I have never had an AK fsb that was this difficult to straighten or remove. Not with a Romy, not with a Yugo, not with any other Bulgarians for that matter.

Never mind. I ended up getting it. Apparently, my press-fu was a little rusty. I ended up pulling out the FAL steel barrel vise jaws.
