    I don't like the sight picture on my WASR-2 and I'm thinking of getting some sort of aperture/peep sight w/ windage adjustment. Where should I go shopping? Any you guys recommend?

    And also, would any stores sell the front sight adjustment tool or is that something I should just get online? :o

    sight tool get cheap from crapco. As far as the rear sight :dunno: I never changed any of mine, I'd just throw an optic on it.

    Only optic I'd consider is maybe an Eotech. Is there a good way to mount one without putting plastic crap all over it?

    Krebs is coming out with a rear rail/peep site combo. It will no doubt be expensive but I think you would be able to co-witness with an aimpoint.

    I don't have any problems with the AK sites, they are accurate enough. The way I see it is buying a peep sight is almost halfway to buying a decent commie optic. Why not just save a little more?

    You can always open the rear sight up a little with a file if they bug you that much.

    Kobra works fine on the siderails.

    That's what I did to mine. Made the rear sight more of an express style V-notch. Much faster acquisition.
