    Notice the small space between the lock and the gas cylinder? That is good.
    I just learned something new, thank you. Following this thread has been great!

    I feel like you should be charging for these lessons.

    Now tighten up the lock screw. You can us a large flat blade screwdriver, #3 Philips or the old tool/handle which would be in the buttstock cleaning kit. I have one of those around here somewheres but the screwdrivers are in reach. The gap between the lock and gas cylinder should disappear as everything pulls forward. You do not want the front handguard to be up tight against the lower barrel band as when the barrel warms up while shooting, there will be some issues with barrel distortion. That front handguard should have a little bit of forward/backward play. Normal, good, time to move on.

    There'd easily be enough interest on both sides of the border for it. Is a monetized channel on YouTube still a thing?

    Moving on.
    The front sight stuff. Sight, screw and Allen wrench to tighten it up. Look for a sight that has not been beaten to death. Bent ears or loose as goose poop even after tightening the screw are time to chuck in the recycle bin. For what they are worth, replace the screw. 5/16x 1/2 inch cap screws are dirt cheap. I am going for a rifle that works great, not some clone of the rifle that saved Private Ryan. 3/16ths
    Allen key for the win.

    Slide the front sight on from the right side. This one went on smooth. Sometimes you may need to tap them into place with a hammer and punch or try to open the dovetail gap with a screwdriver.

    Center it up on the dovetail.

    Install screw and you are done. Make sure it is on tight. Not stupid tight but tight enough as not to lose the sight one day when you are plinking away near tall grass which will eat it up never to be seen again.

    Just like Johnny Cash's Cadillac, build it one piece at a time.

    Next up will be the rear sight. That may be simple, or it may be like dealing with the feds and your passport renewal.
