Just to add something.....

This allows the bolt to release when you rack the charging handle:

I did have to bevel the leading edge of the safety, but did NOT remove any material from the bottom:

Damn, that's awesome. I guess I'll do that with my next safety lever...
I am now pulling back the thing that you pull back before you fire the gun...

Just be aware that if you cut it too steep the safety will not disengage. Of course, if it's not steep enough you won't be able to pull the charging handle back. It takes some playing with to find an acceptable balance, but it works quite well when you find your sweet spot.


I'd also like to explicitly state that if you like this design/mod/whatever, please feel free to use it, post pics of it, and tell all your friends. At your own risk, of course, but I wouldn't get all bent out of shape. You can even copyright it, if you're so inclined.

thanks caged for the post which reminded me i needed to do this!

went with mammynun's type of cutout in the end, with the front edge profiled to match the shape of the charging handle as closely as i could - with the rear ramp not for releasing but to aid hooking in the slot, bolt releases fine just by disengaging safety :angel:

When I mod one I prefer to add a tab on the side so I can disengage the BHO / safety with trigger finger while keeping my hand on the PG.

yup that would def be a better solution - however welding is something i have no knowledge of as yet! it certainly releases easy enough if a tab were there, one for me to work on! :devil:

Back on topic, I got the shits of my BHO spring popping off, so I got a JTE main spring, straightened out the little tab on my BHO, then put the right side hook of the main spring on the BHO. Works great.
Why do we always hurt the ones we hit?

Here is one way to add a tab without welding. I don't weld either and prefer not to subject any of my gun parts to that kind of extreme heat. I prefer to use the time proven method of using steel rivets to join all parts on an AK.
I used this method when I installed this finger tab on a friend's selector on his Tromix SBS-12 (Slug-O).

Interesting solution. Got any pics?

Another easy solution is to drill a small hole through the BHO and put a bend in the spring to fit through it.

nice one Cobra, def one for me to try :smoke:

as for the bho spring, i stripped mine out my other saiga yesterday to have a play/clean. After much head scratching and swearing i managed to get it back in ok, i then took it out again, straight back in... i used the bho itself to hold the spring in position then line it with hole for pin.
Hard to describe but held it against receiver wall by pushing bho against it, then with the springs short leg in place pushing it down behind bho with a small flat screwdriver whilst keeping a little pressure on bho so the little bugger of a spring stays down, flip over and using small screwdriver line it up with pin hole.
I spent ages trying to get that bloody spring in, but once i adopted the above approach it was an instant job every time :super:
