you must remove the cylinder from the butt stock
if you have not done so already. If you purchased
your rifle used and or did not receive a kit, check
for it in the butt stock, most people don't realize
they even have one until some one tells them. To
remove the cylinder stick your finger in the hole
until the trapdoor is held back by the toolkit.
Remove your finger slowly and the toolkit should
Next separate the small end cap off of the case
of the cylinder and remove the contents inside.
Most toolkits designed for the AK will have the
same tools or tools that are very similar.
A. Cleaning Jag(used to hold cleaning patch)
B. Multi tool
C. Pin Punch
D. Bore Brush
E. Tool Kit Cap
F. Tool Kit Case
G. Cleaning Rod(Not stored in tool kit)
Ok, one of the first pieces you need to become
familiar with is the tool kit case, if you noticed
it has a series off holes and slots. Each one
of these holes and slots serves a purpose. Below
is a key to the picture that describes the names
we will be assigning to each slot/hole. This is
necessary so I can refer back to a specific slot/hole.
A. Large Hole
B. Small Hole
C. Large Slot
D. Small Slot
E. Locking Lever Slot
using the above case slot/hole guide, you can assemble
multiple basic tools for working on your rifle.
The first tool, and one of the most useful, is the
blade tool. This tool was primary used to depress
the compensator lock depicted in the drawing to
remove a compensator/flash hider. Since most Romanian's
do not come equipped with a compensator, the tool
serves other uses such as tightening various screws
on the rifle, such as a butt stock screw, or to
leverage/pry parts off of the rifle that are stuck.
Once such use would be removing a stuck Sheppard's
hook. To assemble this tool insert the sight notch
part down through the large slot and out through
the small slot on the other side of the tool kit
next tool that can be assembled is the sight tool.
This tool is used to adjust the elevation of the
center sight peg in the front sight. Please view
the Sighting in Your AK tutorial for instructions
on how to use this tool. To assemble this tool stick
the blade end of the multi tool through the large
slot down through and out the small slot in the
tool kit case.
every rifle gets dirty in the field it must be maintained,
though the AK series will still operate no matter
how dirty it gets, it's a good idea to clean it
to protect your investment. If you took notice to
the description of items included in your tool kit,
it is apparent that most of them are used in cleaning
the rifle. The cleaning jag, and bore brush are
both accessories to the cleaning rod. To build the
cleaning remove it from under the barrel of the
rifle and then insert the threaded end through the
top of the large hole down completely through the
small hole. Make sure the cleaning rod is completely
pulled down through the tool kit case until it stops.(NOTE:
Some tool kit cases have a hole drilled through
the center of the cylinder cap. This is supposed
to be slid on the cleaning rod to help line it up
when inserting). Next take one of the cleaning accessories
and screw it on to the end of the cleaning rod.
Use the center half circle shape in the center of
the multi tool as a wrench to tight the accessory
on if necessary. Lastly, insert the multi tool into
the cleaning case on top of the cleaning rod to
keep it from backing out. If your cylinder end cap
has no hole, and or is not being used, put the cap
back on the case to prevent the multi tool from
falling out, otherwise use your thumb.
