    I have a 182 series Mini 14, I had to have the barrel replaced because it was damaged. I bought a nice stock stainless steel barrel with front sight and had it installed and head spaced by a gunsmith, but the front sight is canted to the left a little.

    I would also like to add a muzzle brake to my rifle as well. Does anybody make a one piece front sight/muzzle brake unit that`s held in place with screws that I can buy and replace myself ?.

    It would be helpful you could post some links if possible.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I think I found a replacement front sight/muzzle brake that I like, so my next question is, how hard is it to remove the factory front sight after the roll pin is removed ?.

    I used a small gear puller to remove the front site of my M1 carbine. Used a bolt in barrel so there was no damage to the muzzle, then tapped back on with a brass hammer.
