    Hi, I just bought my first AK and its an Arsenal SGL21. I disassembled it and now im not sure if i installed the gas tube correctly. Should those holes be visible that are in the pics? Also is the gas tube supposed to seat against that little metal notch in the pictures? Im supposed to be shooting this tomorow morning for the first time and would like it if the rifle does not blow up in my face so any help is appreciated.

    It only goes together one way. The holes vent the gas after it hits the piston. No problem.
