I am collecting the parts for a 308 Saiga conversion & need some advice on the trigger to use. I have decided to go with a 2-stage trigger set but am not sure which one to get. As I write this, I am looking at the 'Power Custom' set or the 'Red Star' set.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

You'll be just as happy with either one, and I mean EXACTLY as happy. Power Custom owns Red Star Arms. B)

many state they are drop in for the 308. but mine was not .I got the vepr 308 rsa two stage adjustable trigger,adjusted it to my preferene and discovered there was alot of play side to side,so i made a shim from an aluminum spacer and placed it on the bho side.Although a p.i.t.a.making a shim and making the bho fit,and then making bho clear new shim without sticking up too high without binding .I love the trigger but don't want to take back apart to make spare spacers.I believe power customs and rsa are the same company I called rsa and power customs called back to confirm my order.This should help if you get this trigger and have play side to side.http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?showtopic=7937

Similar experience, except I put the spacer on the left side - didn't want to screw around with BHO - it is hard enough as it is already, but I see your point Obituary - the hammer is VERY tight now as it comes in contact with the trigger body. I had to file a slant on the trigger body, which I noticed the factory one had as well. If I did it your way, it would not be an issue. But on the positive side, I just got the 1/4" spacer and it was a perfect fit.
Also, hammer needs to be filed down for BHO clearance on the right side of the pivot - I used a hand file as recommended on this forum vs dremel, since dremel can heat up the hammer and it could lose some of the hardness.

Many thanks, gentlemen. I guess I will be doing some additional research regerding shimming the trigger! I guess it's never quite as easy as it sounds, is it?

I swear, nothing is "drop-in" on Saiga's. Pretty much everything requires custom fitting of one type or another. lol.

but thats what makes it addicting... i swear the work involved on my part makes me take that much more pride in it.

can't wait to get started on the x39, just waiting for some parts to become available...

That's the beauty in it you put the time and work in to make it the way you need,want,it to be and it's your own piece of artwork and fine tuning.Too bad i get too sick of working on cars to want to spend time working on my own lol.Next up is a s-12, bmw is on back burner.
