Building my first AK.....
I have a question on the gas tube setup.....It appears that the top hand guard is held in place by, what appears to be a sliding clip around the gas tube and rear of the top hand guard slips into a clip on the rear of the gas tube....My problem is that the sliding clip does not slide....
Am I thinking correctly or does it work differently....Like I said this is my first AK....
Have a Great Day!!!!!!!

The ferrules on the gas tube are permanent. The furniture piece rotates into position.


You can also set the flat of the tube in a vise and turn the tube cover off.

Thanks Blue....
That answers my question outstandingly....
Probably be back, no doubt....
Is there a good picture of the hammer and trigger setup, in the receiver??? I'm a US military arms collector mostly, but was
shot at by AK's on the four tours in VietNam so thought I'd build one so I could feel it fire.....
