    Hello all.

    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?

    Thanks.

    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.

    B-Square Ak/SKS Sight Tool

    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.

    I'll second the B Square.

    For about $20, its very well made, allows for minute adjustments, and can be left on the rifle while you shoot (for windage adjustments. You need to take it off to get the elevation on).


    The Chinese type are about useless, especially if the sight barrel is tight, like most are.
