    Front sight removed for sound moderator help

    My mate had his rifle threaded for a sound moderator yesterday ,he brought the gun round for me to have a look at it,heres the thing, where the front sight has been removed the edges are as ruff as a badgers arse is there any way he can smooth it down without taking it to a gunsmith , i told him to take it back to smith who done it,but he said there is no way he will go back to this smith,s shop long story

    Yep it can be smoothed with careful use of a swiss or riflers file or a deburring scraper.

    I don't think much of the "Gunsmith" though.

    +1 If your mate isn't used to using files, get him to cover the surrounding area with tape (in case of slips) and take it very steady.

    I'm guessing his difficulties with the "gunsmith" in question happened before he started work...

    A set of rifflers would be best so he has a choice of shapes and profiles. Get decent length handles for more control and diamond coated ones are easier for beginners as they are less likely to jump.

    These may be a load of cr@p - I don't know - but it will give you some idea of what I mean:
