I can't seem to find an East German AK-74 gas tube locking lever anywhere. This Yugo M70 version looks closer than anything else I can find. Are the dimensions the same as its counterpart on AK-74 rifles? Would it work in an AK-74 rear sight block, or no?

The one I am looking for is basically just flat like the one I posted above. The one RTG has in stock looks different than what I am trying to procure. I'm trying to find one like this:



Here's the one from RTG:

Yugo and type 3 style RSBs are like 1.5 mm wider than the AKM AK74 RSB. So the lever, too, is 1.5mm wider. I suppose it is possible to make one work with a little filing.
You think I could file 1.5mm off the non-lever end and make it work?

Either/or as long as it is the correct diameter to leave the outer rim for peening.
Basically shortening the width and restoring the inverted area.
