  1. Im not an "ancient one" by any means, but its been awhile. Partly because I went to school for general machinist and CNC machinist 1. Then after that I got my bachelors degree in film/videography. I don't make shitty YouTube videos anymore....they're "high-class YouTube films" now...lol But seriously, the Saiga12 and this forum gave me the initial push to do all of that and I thank you guys for supporting my crippled ass! Its too bad that some vendors considered my crappy channel, at that time, to be a business and convinced the owner to make me purchase a monthly vendor account just to be able to share my videos here with you all. Apparently they assumed I was making that "Google/YouTube money" when even now my channel still doesn't make enough to even think about purchasing a monthly vendor account. To the vendors still here that were on my side, thank you again.

    Getting Back To My Roots!

    Oh, Ive never stopped doing my video bud. Im not allowed to share my videos here without buying a vendor's membership. You should check out my newer videos to see how much my production value has improved.

    ALG Tromix AK trigger

    Yeah I knew someone would beat me to it. I just don't have a lot of time now days with family, work and school. Im still planning on making my own version of the modification/installation video. Good job bud!

    I believe I did haven't had it out recently to do more testing. Well just as a bit of advice, the quad handrail you have on it clamps down on the gas tube and can cause enough friction on the op rod to cause FTEs. I know this because that was also my first handrail for my Saiga12.

    Do you have any feeding issues? Failure to ejects(FTE)?

    Put your badge away Smokey, you're reading too much into it. One guy says he modified the safety shaft, the other says the pinch point on the inside of the receiver. I asked how he modified the safety shaft. I'd never heard that before. Notice the "six to one half dozen to another"? The machinist drop was to show they know more about it and have the best way to do something. That's all that was. Being a machinist with access to those tools and doing things like one doesn't help the average joe. Im pretty sure that I never mentioned any lathes, mills, or CNC machines to do this simple task. I did however mention files and sandpaper, but I guess not every average joe has access to files and sandpaper. What I DID say was that its is up to the user and their skill/confidence level in performing this modification to their own firearm. I dropped the machinist aspect of my knowledge assuming that you would equate that to attention to detail...but I guess you didn't.

    ^^^^What he said Not all safeties are made the same just like every AK out there. Its a very loose tolerance firearm and thats why it works so well but also that every AK is different. You can pick up one AK that has a very loose safety and then another thats very tight. With some safeties the bending the safety outboard a bit releasing a bit of its spring tension, which makes sure it stays in the detent, will help out a bit but only if the tolerance of the area where it "pinches" the receiver is loose enough. If the tolerance in the "pinching" area of the safety is very tight, then you could bend the safety to where its not even touching the receiver and it would still be tough to move and the only thing you've done is to make sure that the safety will not stay in the detent if bumped. Look at your safety while its installed and the dust cover is off from the inside of the receiver. Look at the "pinching" area and take it out of the receiver. Now you can either take a small file or sandpaper, depending on your skill level and confidence, and slowly take some of the material where it "pinches" the receiver away. Do this in small increments and between each filing/sanding put it back in the receiver to test. Once the desired friction has been achieved, leave the safety lever installed and put your file/sandpaper away. Im not an AK armorer/builder but I am a machinist that does a lot of gun work......plus I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night so I got that going for me.
