    I want to have a new front sight block installed on my AK-74. Ordinarily I'd just take it to my Uncle butsince I won't be visiting him for a few months I'd like to get it done sooner than later. Anybody know of someone that has a press that can handle this relatively simple job?

    Don't know if they still have a gunsmith onsite but you might try Welcher's. They are at 64th and South Tacoma Way. I have a rifle that they sporterized way back in 1946. If they don't sitll havea 'smith, they may know one that can help.

    I had them botch a slide polish job once, and still charge me full-price. I ended up "fixing" it myself. I should havedone the workin the first place. I'm not saying they don't do good work on a normal basis, as I've heard good things from other people, but this was my first and will be my only experience there.

    +1 for Sirpuma, he just handled a transfer out for me, and was a pleasure to deal with. VERY reasonable prices too.
