Hey all,
I'm usually on the WASR22 section, but my friend and I have a problem with his Romy CF so Id thought I'd post here. He decided to remove his TAPCO colored plastic front sight post and re-install his OEM metal one. Problem we are having is getting the 'split base' that is spread apart a bit (like a leaf spring) squeezed together enough to start it in the hole. Got the proper sight tool. Any tips or trick? I already searched here but nothing. Thanks!

Try wrapping some safety wire around it.
Twist wire till it pulls closed.
Twist in post a few threads.
untwist wire.
Worth a try

Wire trick worked like a charm. Don't know what safety wire is offhand, but I used 1/16" bale wire. Man, that is some hard steel to compress. Thanks again!
