More details please

How is this installed? Can it be done with a milled reciever like a SAM7 or on a stamped reciever what modifications are necessary?

Jnewt used that safety on the milled 5.45mm he built. Pictures are on the 1st page of the AK picture thread.

It can be installed on pretty much any AK. You just have to cut the hole on the bottom. It can be done by the home shop guy with a dremel.

It's a simple linkage, unlike that of the semi-auto Galil. Unfortunately, unlike the Galil, the motion is ergonomically backwards. You need to drag it back to put it on fire, push forward to safe. I've never handled a FA Galil, but I understand it works the same way. The SA Galil, an example of which I owned many years ago (stupidly sold it in 1992 so I could buy a house (double dumbass!!)), works the right way. Push forward to fire, back to safe.

The Arsenal one is a good concept, but fails in the execution. If you think about it, most rifles have a "down" or "forward" stroke to take them off safe. Pulling back is just weird.


FWIW, the Krebs left side safety works in the correct direction (I assume they copied it from the semi Galil).

It's much more natural.

The Galil one works correctly because there is an extra pivot pin with a linkage to the selector ...

Will Krebs install his safety on a customer's AK?

I don't see the point.
