Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

AK Pistol Build 7" Barrel Gas Tube Question

#1 Post by wpflgun » Wed May 02, 2018 8:04 pm

Picked up an AK Nano Pistol Kit from CF Systems. Got my parts together, not quite sure how to handle the gas tube. Have a full length tube which will need cutting down. Problem is there is insufficient space to slide in and lock tube as you would on a full length one if cut to the short length.

I am wondering if I need to remove the front sight and install it permanently, or cut it short enough to slide in and use a steel tube sleeve and clamps to hold into place.

I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas.

Well as the only important part of the tube is in the gas block. All the tube does is serve and a cover and guide. You can do just about anything you want . All the tube does Is cover the piston. all the gas work it done in the gas block. I would just do the permanate job.
Aint nothing you cant fix with five gallons of diesel and a match.
