Pic is kinda blurry--you mean the bore is not centered in the barrel? I'd say you may have issues sighting it in. Sometimes the front sight is a real PITA to drift for windage even with a stout AK front sight tool. If the receiver, barrel, and front sight are not aligned correctly, or canted from perpendicular---you'll have a heck of a time chasing your hits on target with sight adjustments. Hoppe's #9 in my opinion is for mainly internals and barrel--it's a powder solvent. I'd recommend anyone with an AK try Sweet's 7.62 solvent--it's very good. A word of caution though for the chrome lined barrels in any rifle----ammonia based solvents (such as the Sweet's) should not be left in the barrel for any length of time. The bore should be swabbed dry after the use of ammonia based solvents, then neutralized with CLP, and a light coat of the CLP left in the bore (not swabbed totally dry). In my opinion---the AK47 is not a sniper weapon--it's basic design pretty much dictates it's not a rifle made for mounting a scope--neither is the SKS for that matter. Learn to use and adjust the open sights provided. The AK is mainly a close range, hi capacity, short barreled weapon---that was the intended use---one should not expect more.
As you can see the barrel is slightly more to the left in the picture, will this cause any issues? everything looks straight except the very tip. The crome seems to be on one side(left) more then the other. I know these are beat up surplus deals, so I dont need perfection, just want to see if this is a serious issue or nothing to worry about. All feedback is appreciated, thanks!
