    I've got everything back together on the 24/47 except for the front sight hood. I'm having trouble spreading the hood enough to slide it into the grooves on the sides of the sight. I need maybe four hands and I just ain't got 'em. What do you milsurp pro's suggest?

    I'm thinking that one of the hose clamp type of pliers for the spring type clamps will do the job. I'm off to the auto parts store.

    That got it. Lock ring pliers did the job.

    Look at this, a three post thread all by myself. :eek:
