Occasionally a customer brings in an AK kit and a receiver that is not drilled for the trunnion rivets. I made a drill guide by drilling through (3/32") a short AK rivet in the lathe and case hardening it.

A good friend gave me a Colt Army Replica. It was in good condition. I cleaned it up using a fine steel wool which showed the blue was perfect. The front brass post was loose which I repaired with a drop of Loctite.

Question: I want to buy a set of tritium sights for my service issue Beretta 92f, but it doesn't look like I can change the front sight. Do the Meprolight Sights (#387-302-762) you carry under Beretta 92F (fixed low-profile) include a new slide? It looks like I need an entirely new slide since the front sight is integral with it. Let me know how I can get night sights on this thing!
