WOW! Just installed the Red Star Arms trigger kit and it is AWESOME! Sorry if this is a duplicate thread, but DAMN! What a frigging difference it makes!

I have a new SAR 2, and I had to do a bit of fitting to get the trigger kit in. Wasn't too bad though. I had to remove some of the receiver from in front of the trigger well as it caused the trigger and sear to 'HANG' and not travel to the downward resting position.

I also got the Shephards Hook replacement plate, went in smooth and easy, screw that 'ABORTION'/shepherds-hook!!!

In addition to all that I got the Extended mag release, it's nice to do a trigger finger MAG release now!

I bought the package deal, and included was the gas piston/rod.

Does the new gas piston make a difference over the old stock piston???

speaking of the mag release how much faster is the change time now on a mag?

1179- I don't know about 'seconds saving' but it is faster in that ones hand can stay on the pistol grip and use the trigger finger to trip the mag release while the non-firing hand fishes a mag out and inserts.

Not quite AR quick as one would still need to re-cycle the bolt on an empty chamber, but quicker than the non-firing hand removing mag and then getting mag to re-insert.

The extended mag release is ambidexterous too.

CAMPYBOB- Again, you are VERY right. I wish to extend to you, among others on this forum, a 'THANK YOU' for all the info and easing in the crossing-over to the DARK SIDE!

I suspected as much with the gas piston, but wanted to query the Wise, I will add the piston rod to the soon to be growing AK spare parts bin....

I just installed one too.

Excellent trigger, will be buying another.

And then another AK, and another trigger, etc.

RSA is to AK as JP is to AR .


Thanks for the advice guys !
