I need a tool for pressing off gasblocks and front sight bases. I was using the plate from Xebecs but its about destroyed now from years of use. Anyone sell something similar or willing to make me one? It would be relatively easy to make and I need one ASAP. I was gonna try a local machine shop but thought Id try here 1st. Basically all I want is a 6x6 or so block made out of alum or preferably steel that has had two holes drilled in it, one the diameter of an AK barrel and the other large enough for a gasblock to fit through. Drill a hole perpendicular on each end of the plate, so that a bolt will fit through. Cut the block in two down the center and thats it. Fasten each half around the barrel, insert and nut/bolt and your ready to press off barrel parts.
