    Nice. I’m glad this finally made its way to you.

    I didn't know “bolt hold” was a thing. Interesting.

    The Ultimak is a strong option for a Red Dot mount. I have them on several of my AKs, and even Rifle Dynamics ships their guns with them on an AK

    It’s not a “feature”. The resistance of the hammer dragging on the carrier is the cause.

    The PSA is just friction I think, but I love the Krebs notch on the safety for that purpose.

    Pretty sure I had one of those on my old AK. I think I had one of the ones with a notch and the extended shelf, and my recollection was that I liked the notch but could do without the shelf. From my notes on my previous 365 days of AK...

    I kept the Blackjack Swift extended safety lever on the gun for the duration of this experiment. While I came to appreciate it, especially the bolt-hold-open notch for admin purposes, I also came to see it as unnecessary. The notch could be added to the stock safety with a couple of minutes with some hand tools, and it is not the hardship that I thought it would be to swipe off the standard safety, nor to re-engage it.

    The late Paul Gomez taught me "AK" and I came to appreciate the Krebs "ledge" as an easier way to disengage and a good position for my trigger finger to reside, just the manual of arms I learned with the thing. Clearly just a little file time is all that is required for the notch.

    I saw that the notch comes from the factory on the new Century VSKA, a fellow gun club member is trying to sell me his...I am reluctant based on the overall Century reputation, but this guy make me an attractive offer and I did get to shoot the sample he has.

    I really like the "enhanced" style safeties with the ledge, personally. But I don't have much need to even lock the bolt open so I prefer no notch. I much prefer the AKOU enhanced safety to the Krebs.
    Does anyone like pineapple on their pizza guns?

    Very good write up! Lays it out right there for a novice and even for me pretty much seals the deal on running HSG tacos.

    Also - you don’t happen to be the same AK shooting Matt that lived in the Bay Area 10 or so years ago?
