found by looking in two places on the rifle. The
first place is the Front Sight Block(far left in
picture) and the second is the rifle's Gas Block/Tube(far
right in picture). Look at the picture below if
you need help finding there location.
The first place to look is the front sight base,
look at the picture to the right, the front sight
base outlined in red is canted while the one in
the background in not. When shopping for a AK don't
look directly down the barrel like I did in the
shot because you will look like a idiot. A Canted
front sight block is just a looks thing; I have
seen some very canted rifles shoot perfectly straight.
Also Cant can be either way to the left or right
and vary in how severe of an angle it is Canted.
second place Cant is common is on the gas tube.
The picture to the left depicts looking at the rifle
head on if the Front Sight was transparent. Notice
how the gas block (the dark grey looking thing)
is canted compared to the other one. Cant on a gas
block can be serious, if the Cant is just a little
then its not to much of a problem, but if it is
canted severely it can cause problems with the rifles
gas piston leading to jams and malfunctions.
can be fixed three ways. First, you could call Century
International Arms up and ask them to fix it, they
will usually do this for free, but people have mixed
results with them. Second, you could try to find
a gunsmith willing to do it, but this can get expensive.
Third, you could fix it yourself by following my
