    I have a WASR AK and the gas block was all over the place. I straightened the cant but I now see that the top part where the piston goes in is actually twisted a little. Can I heat the 45 degree part that goes from the barrel portion of the gas block to the piston portion, with a torch until red hot and gently twist it a little until straight?

    It's OK to laugh first:D

    if it is just the removeable gas tube then get another one. if its the block trough the frame of the weapon that i cant help with.

    although your blowtorch idea might work and if you feel ok to fire it more power to you. good luck
