    Looking for for tritium night sight replacement vials. Anyone know where I can get them and how hard they'd b to replace myself? Also seeing what you guys would recommend for a nice cheek rest to put on the underfolder stock. Recoil buffers worth buying? Also seen a 10" barrel in the sportsmans guild and considering having the gun registered as a sbr with the ATF. Opinions, input?

    A 10" barrel will be a blast, pun intended. You will gain nothing except the initial excitement. You will be able to light up your hunting trail at night should you ever get lost. You will go through the hassle of fingerprinting and clearance by local LE, $200 on a fed stamp, and an estimated 8 months on waiting for your purchase to materialize. (You didn't state the caliber, I assume its 7.62 soviet). It will be also loud as heck.

    For recoil, consider a Shoulderpads butt sock. It is a gel padded condom but looks professional in black, and is adjustable for thickness. About $20.

    In addition to the registration cost, going the route of installing a new barrel, you add the expense of the new barrel and possibly a piston, and finding someone to press out your old barrel and press in, headspace and pin the new barrel.

    Easier to buy one of the 10" barreled pistols, register it, and then add a folder to it. And I'd go side folder.

    Biggest thing I'm wanting to do is get the night sights glowing again. That's my top priority with this rifle and I can't find anything on the Internet about replacements. The recoil buffer I was talking about goes between the recoil spring and it furthest rearward mount to the gun.

    I have only heard of jams starting after installing those buffers. I'm nog familiar with the Yugo night sights. I have some clamp on E. German night sights but they just have glow paint on them. So you would hit them with a light to get them glowing. I've heard of irridium painted sights as well and they glow without being hit with a light, until they burn out. Can't get irridium paint though, cause its radioactive and caused cancer for a lot of the folks who used to paint it on dials, gauges, and sights.

    I'd really appreciate some help with finding some vial replacements. Can't find them anywhere :(

    Trijicon will do their own sights for around $60. Trutium is regulated in the US because it is radioactive, so I don't know that they would just send you vials of it. You could contact them and see if they would be willing to instal new vials in your sights if you sent them in.

    Someone on another forum suggested this place as an option for tritium vial replacement:

    Innovative Weaponry Inc/ Miniature Machine Corp
    7770 S Duneville Suite 10
    Las Vegas, NV 89139

    Guess I'll call trijicon and see if they'd do my sights. Tried looking up that company and couldn't find much. If it was their website I found, it wouldn't load

    Meprolight offers a set of night sights for the AK, not sure of theyd fit a Yugo or not tho. Direct replacement on some tho. About $120 i think for the front post and rear ladder.
    Trijicon also offers a set but alot higher price.
    Just throwing out other options.
