Yugo M70AB2 AK-47 Trigger Job
I just wanted to throw this out there for anyone who was interested. I picked up one of these variants B.O., (before Obama), before the price sky-rocketed on them. From the minute I got my M70AB2, I noticed that it had a crappy trigger. Every one of these for sale at the place I bought it had the same issue. This was even more apparent once I got to take her out and heat her up at the range. Alot of people are under the misconception that these rifles have this magical "bolt hold-open feature"...they don't. Your bolt is simply getting hung up on the hammer. That was one problem I had. The second problem was the disconnector was hanging up on the hammer after each shot so badly, that I literally had to push the trigger forward with my finger after every shot. The third problem, (which really is the main problem), is that Century Arms put a cheesy single hook trigger in a receiver cut and made for a double hook trigger. I did the obligatory disassembly and polishing job with a dremel tool on the parts in question and it did fix the problems enough to make the rifle shootable. This sufficed as I waited for the Tapco G2 double hook group that I'd ordered to arrive. Once it came in, I immediately made the switch and couldn't wait to see the difference. What a difference it was! Now the action on my rifle is slick as a minnow's ...well, you know..and that heavy trigger pull is now lighter with smooth creep and a crisp let-off. Now this rifle will get as much rangetime as my other AKs. As for the durability of these G2 trigger groups, I have a Romanian WASR, (that people who don't know what to look for when buying an AK will label a "piece of junk"), that has over 5,000 rounds through it and still fires as good as the day I got it. So if anyone is tired of trying to polish parts and rails and otherwise "fiddle" with their M70AB2 to get it to work its best, just install a G2 group and enjoy. Hope this helps somebody. Molon Labe!
