I did it. Just refinished the metal last night so I'll post pics later this afternoon or evening. I now have a functioning (safe and fire only of course) left side selector with the three positions and markings to boot. It was a bitch. The Polish rifles must have taller receivers or SOME geometry that's different because boy was I surprised when the bolt carrier was smacking into the selector shaft! DAMN! I wonder how they really are set up? Selector lower in the frame maybe? I had to notch that shaft to clear the carrier in all three selector positions and design and make a REMOVABLE (for disassembly) "lug" to act as the actual safety on the left trigger leg rather than the right side. Then, I had to reshape the hammer and trigger spring to clear it all. BUT, it was worth it.................pics to follow shortly.............

Thanks.

I fired a thirty round mag full of Barnaul through it today. Runs just fine at hits point of aim also! The receiver was a Global Trades I ordered about 5 months ago with all the info (including matching serial number) printed on the bottom.

So hold on here... you can activate and deactivate the safety with this selector without any trouble? How did you go about doing it?
