I recently purchased an SKS/AK sight adjustment tool for my Yugo SKS and WASR 10.
I needed to adjust the front sight on my WASR and the tool I got for $8 bent while adjusting the elevation.
The tool was the C-clamp variety.
My question to the forum members is can you recommend a better tool to this duty. Is the TAPCO tool better?

I'm in the same boat and researching tools. Supposedly, the Tapco is a better/stonger/treated metal and won't spread. If you find out for sure let us know because I need to buy one, too.

I got the tech-sight front sight tool and rear sight spanner, I wrapped them in plastic and keep them in the SAW grip. I used it to install the thinner front sight post, no problems.

The best sight tool for an Ak or SKS is made by B-Square. It's a little pricey but it WILL move the sight without bending or breaking. I bought one after the cheap Tapco tool I bought broke on the first try. So save yourself the aggravation and get a quality tool.
