I'm interested to know your opinion on your 1 most important/useful Mod you do to your rifles? IMO it's the bolt hold open Mod, to me it's the most useful
Link Posted: 10/23/2013 11:53:10 AM EST
I'd say a good commie magazine, with metal if polymer.

Aside from that, a good sling.

For me, the best non-accessory mods (tac light, optic, vertical grip, sling, etc.) are a better pistol grip and trigger than factory.
Are you going to provide some more info on your BHO modification. Nice photo, but no info.....

It's amazing what removing 1/16 off each side does for my shooting.

Optics? It's an AK. Nuff said.

Better trigger, G2s are very inexpensive and make a big difference.

This + filing the front post to a point. At 100 yards the front post normally covers about 6-8 inches, a point makes for more precise aiming at longer distances.

I can take some, but it's hard to tell it's not stock if you will.

Bought a small file set at Home Depot, used the flat small one and took a little off each side, not much at all but it sure does wonders.

I'll wait till my next range trip to adjust as needed (more filing)

i just used para cord to move the sling to the correct side(i shoot lefty) of my M92. i also used a dremmel to cut a small groove for a para cord loop to tie around the p-grip screw. that saved me atleast $20 for a rear mount and some weight. i think i'll do the same mods on my maadi, when i can order another israeli sling. i liked the simple para cord loops so much i ditched the "sling swivells" on my savage .22 and just tied para cord loops through the studs

strong
light
adaptable
cheap

This and a safety you can use with your trigger finger. Not one of the Krebs ones though because they are too damn expensive for what you actually get.

If you also mean accessories then I would say the same thing for every long gun, a sling and/or light.

If your trigger is not that good then replace it with a Tapco G2 trigger set (they are great AK triggers).

The width of the front sight post corresponds to your group size at that range.

If you shoot it fast, you will begin to smell a certain unique smell that only burning 550 cord has, right before one end of your sling drops free.

I did open up the rear sight a little with a small round file, it does make a world of a difference I also decided against filing the front sight post!.............. good thing i didn't do it!

It's under the Maintenance & Cleaning thread from about a month ago, I posted a thread asking how to hold the bolt open, someone posted a link to a nice writeup with pics. But basically just remove the safety lever and cut a notch with a cutting tool or dremel like the one pic'd above.

Accu Wedge. It makes you shoot more gooder. It's proven. With science.

Ah, crap! Wrong thread...

No seriously, for me, it has to be an aftermarket grip. The standard AK grip is too small for my giant, bear like, American man hands. I like the US Palm grip and the MFT Engage, haven't tried the Magpul grip yet.

...and +1 for the Fuller sight mod and pin retainer plates.

Not on my rifle it doesn't, don't know what you are shooting but 6-8 MOA is a little crappy for my taste, my pellet gun shoots better than that.

So I'm relatively new to all of this, but of the few modifications that I've done on my first AK (SAR-1) I'd say that replacing the Century FCG and polishing it down real nice to smooth out the action has been real beneficial. I like the sounds of filing the front and rear sights, is there a thread on that one? My .02.

polishing the action is the first thing i do when i get a new firearm, as far as filing goes, i only did the rear sight with a small round needle file, just make sure you take equal amounts off from each side, you wouldn't think it makes a big difference but i does......BTW thanks guy's for that tip
