Is this a shorty rifle that uses a gas lock front sight?? If not, leave the front sight on the flash suppressor and take the flash suppressor and sight off together. You need to take off the dog screw that's angled at the BASE of the front sight that locks the castle nut in, with an allen wrench. Then use the castle nut pliers to loosen the castle nut. Remove suppressor, unscrew and remove gas lock, remove cylinder. No need to remove sight.

I do have an extra NOS GI gas piston that's never been used if you're interested. Send me a pm. As for a cylinder, LRB sells a commercial cylinder for $94 and change without the spindle valve and spring, or a welded unified commercial cylinder for 179.95. LRB's quality is very good. -Check with SAI store for a set of castle nut pliers. Hope this helps. -Lloyd 🍻
