Best Thing I Ever Did To My AK's.
#1
Thanks to a buddy on this sight, I finally found the safety I wanted to put on my AK at a price I was willing to pay. Midway had the Krebs Custom Guns Mk VI Enhanced Safety Selector Lever for AK-47 in. They are normally around $65. They had them for $44.99. So I ordered two of them, one for my MAK 90 and one for the daughters WASR.

They came in today, and I put one on the daughters AK. First, let me say that it was really easy to do. REAL EASY.

So, it is installed. I reached up and gave it a try.

OMG!!!!

Why did I ever wait to buy one of these things. It is totally amazing. It works way better than I ever thought it would (are you getting the idea that I'm impressed yet?).

My biggest complaint about my wonderful AK, was how you had to let go of the grip, to flick the safety on and off. With this new safety in place. Those days are long gone. Just reaching up with your trigger finger, you can flick the safety off and on slick as could be. I was flabbergasted. I just fixed the one thing that I always thought was messed up about the AK. It is now absolutely wonderful in my book. I love my AK even more, and I didn't think that was possible.

Here is the link to the safety levers. Bad news.... they are already sold out of them, and are now on back order. Glad I nabbed up my two when I did (Thanks again Emptymag). I just wish I had gotten one more for the wife's SAR 1.

OH YEAH, it also holds the bolt open which is another feature that I hated about the AK. Two problems solved.

Dont suppose you would be willing to part with one of the old safety levers in the name of science. Since the aforementioned thread came up I have been debating getting a spare stock one and modifying it. Why not because I am cheap, but because I enjoy tinkering.

It looks like this one is a no-go for Yugo variants (per Midway's site). I sent Krebs support an email asking if they would send me the model numbers they have that will work with fixed-stock and under folder Yugos.

Thank you. I'm going to make sure it will work on my Polish underfolder and get one if it does.

Cool. Glad it worked out for you.

It must not be very hard to move if you can use one finger to do it.

They make one for underfolders. I remember seeing them on Krebs website. They are quite different than the standard one.

The one on the daughters WASR is really smooth. Even she can flick it on and off with just her trigger finger. Very impressive.

Putting one on my MAK 90 took a bit more work. And it is a bit stiffer. Can still flick it on and off with one finger. But after doing it a couple times. It hurts my finger to flick it back up into the safe position (grooves dig into my fingers a bit). But in reality, I won't be flicking it back and forth repeatedly. And I do have a good pair of gloves hanging on my tactical vest that I would put on for extended use of my rifle.

Such a simple device. Such a major improvement to the handling and functioning of the safety lever.

To be honest, the biggest need is for flipping the safety is off. If it's time to put it back on, things have likely calmed down enough that you can put it back on like you did with the original safety. I see it as a modification to get the gun in action faster.
