We get a lot of will it fit calls. We can not keep up with all the AK variants out there. Measure your barrel at the gas block location. If your barrel is .7085 / 17.99mm or there about it will more than likely fit. If it is not you will have to have the barrel machined in order for the block to fit. Do not try to install the block by stretching it to fit.
We recommend that once you have adjusted your Venom Tactical front sight windage you apply one or two drops of GREEN Locktite to front sight and allow it to wick between the sight post and the block body.
