Default M1 Carbine Front Sight Key Install Trick

Some older barrels have worn or damaged front sight key slots. It is sometimes difficult to slide the front sight onto the key without it slipping back in/out of the key slot and further damaging the slot. I have found that this problem can be overcome by using a small adjustable stainless hose clamp; first on the rear of the key in the slot to start the front sight install and then moving it back on the back edge of the slot to keep it from sliding out of the slot. Works every time (a little oil doesn't hurt either).
