Just picked this up from Gunbroker for cheap. I added the Knoxx recoil reducing stock, Marine bayonet, and the seriously bent front sight came with it.:smile:

Anyone here have any tips on silver brazing? Like how, exactly, to do it?

I need to braze on a ramped sight to go with the rear ring sight I installed...

I decided to go the epoxy route. It was easier and messier than I thought it would be:nuts:








Much better now:flag:

That last picture is really nice! If only you could put like Bin Ladens face back there somewhere.

The sight has taken several full strength hits from a peening hammer with no movement.

Worked great. I left the bead in there (and roughed up the surfaces of the barrel and sight) to give the epoxy something to grab.
