Improving AK ergo’s - DailyCarry0325 - 02-09-2018

Anyone here changed or modified the mag release or bolt carrier for better manipulations? What did you do and has it held up over time?

I like the platform but think it could use some improvements to be brought up to speed tactically along the lines of the AR mani. controls. And also I own one.

Of course there will be people who say “nyet, rifle blah blah blah...” not interested dudes/dudets. Looking to be able to run an AK like an AR.. or closer to it.

Anyway, let me know if there are products to solve these conundrums or modifications y’all have done yourselves.

A last round bolt catch/bolt release (not just a modified mag follower) would be particularly interesting if anyone has info.

AK is still on my list to own. I have played with my sks though. It still needs work......

I would recommend this video by Jim Fuller. It was money well spent for me.
