    Sumo boot fitting

    Hi all, before I make a complete arse of it all, any tips on fitting the boot hinges. I've got the hinges from S&J.

    Cheers Malc

    No matter if you bought internal or external hinges, make sure the actual hinge pins are in line. I found it to be necessary to grind some of the underside of the (external) hinges because of the curvature of the boot.

    On an AK with S&J hinges, note they are handed slightly so do not put them on the wrong side. Not sure if same on Sumo
