The trigger on my new (I've only shot 350 rounds through it so far) Bushmaster AK Shorty is awful. It's heavy and has lots of creep. I would order a Jewell trigger for it today except for the fact that I haven't the vaguest idea how to install and adjust the damn thing and I doubt if there are any so-called gunsmiths around here who know how to it. Plus, I don't like the idea of having to ship the lower off to get the work done by someone who is qualified. If there is anyone here on this forum in the Pittsburgh area (I live 80 mi. south of Pittsburgh) who can do it, I'll hand deliver it. Thanks.

I'll tell you what... I just ordered one from Ga. Precision and I will figure out how to install it or will find somebody to do it for me. [b]The factory trigger has got to go![/b]

Like Waldo said -- they ship with complete instructions. Why, a child of five could do it![:D] Takes about half an hour if you're as slow as I am.

A better set of instructions is found at [url]www.highpowerrifle.com[/url]. No problem, 1/2 hour, tops. SRM

Thanks to all. I'll let you know how it goes and maybe ask more questions while in the middle of the job.

Go to the Build It Yourself Forum and search for Georgia Precision. He'll have the best price. Go slow and easy. Don't force anything. A trick I use is to take two old pins, chuck them in a drill and sand them down about 1/100" or so and assemble the trigger on those first. then drive the new pins in displacing these. It can help to eliminate that 3rd and 4th hand you need some times.

Halfcocked, that sounds like a great idea . . . only problem is I don't have any extra (old)pins unless new pins come with the trigger. (Edited to add) What if I would take some nails of the appropiate diameter, cut them to length and use them for old pins?

While you are ordering your trigger, just mention that you need some NEW Hammer & Trigger pins. They are cheap and will be alot better than a nail. GPSS 478.994.4560 [url]www.georgiaprecision.com[/url]

Ga. Precision - I ordered the trigger from you yesterday on your web site, order# 1679-8496-2155. How about you add the pins and ship with the trigger. Thanks.
