    Nice AK! Who made it? There use to be lots of AK fans here, mostly purist wood and bakelite lovers. Good group of fellows.

    ALG AKT Trigger, krebs safety, tromix charging handle, TWS top cover, SLR handguards, and dont forget your trigger pin retaining plate so you can do away with the shepherds crook pin.

    MVIMG_20180303_110739.jpg Generally I change the grip and depending on how I plan to use it an optic rail or ultimak.

    I will also experiment with different muzzle devices.

    It depends.
    Tacticool ak's I have used a lot of stuff.
    Forearms, red dot gas tube mounts and rear sight red dot mounts or dust cover mounts.
    Not the cheap stuff either.

    But for me I like to put in a good trigger.
    Notch the rear sight with a rat tail file and open the front sight if it has a closed hood.
    Krebs safety.
    Always do the safety and trigger install together.
