I'm using an ACE blank on an AMD-63 with G2 kit. After installing the lever, I tested it for functionality. Bascially, when I move it up, it doesn't quite move far enough over the edge on the trigger which keeps the trigger from being pulled. I drilled all of the holes using the template. Basically from what I can tell, the piece on the selector pivots in the hole. When move to safe, it turns over the piece on the trigger impeding it from moving upwards when you pull the trigger.The only thing I can guess that happened is that when I made the cutout for the safety, it was cut at an improper angle which would cause the lever not to reach the correct spot on the trigger. In a nut shell, it can pivot to the point of making it over the piece on the trigger. What do you guys think?

Have you reworked it the requisite half-dozen times?

Let's see if I understand: it's not that the safety/ selector is too high, it's that it's too far to the rear.

Generally the easiest way is to build up the tab. Alternately, the rear legs of the trigger (where the spring ends live) can be built up.

The big hole itself is generally too much of a pain to try to close up and move.

Upon further inspection, it appear that the tab on the safety selector sits too high. It is also too far back. But, if you move the selector all the way to the top edge of the receiver, it will barely sit over the part on the trigger(if it is built up). So, probably the easiest thing to do is build up that edge on the safety selector.....? Or, the trigger. It makes more sense to me to build it up on the selector, if for some reason the fcg needs to get switched out at some time it will be ready to go. What do you guys think? The edge on the trigger is a bit wider I believe than compared to the edge on the selector.

Generally the selector lever is built up with a weld.

I did read a post one time though of someone who had managed to thread the trigger tail. I guess it wouldn't be that much different than the Red Star trigger group.

Obviously this is something you want to get fixed prior to throwing live ammo in it.

Most certainly want to get it fixed before shooting. How would you thread this piece? After threading, what would you add?

Josh, I don't know what kind of gear you've got--- I thought I remembered a post where you welded up an extra hole in a receiver.

If so, it's going to be easier for you to weld additional material. Just make the tab longer.

honestly I think I would build up the safty and not touch the fcg. a drop of weld and a littel shapeing then a touch of quick blue sounds good. it sounds like you have the function pretty well down. you can see what is happening and what is not. you will be all set. allmost time for pics :)

Yes, for clarification I mean the tab on the selector.

You blew my cover...I decided to start posting over here in the Troubleshooting area to keep a low profile because.....I AM ALMOST COMPLETE WITH MY FIRST AK! I really am getting excited about posting pictures. I still have the trigger rivets left and paint...and the weld on the tab. Winn, I did weld up a hole a little while back with my buddies MIG. It took a bit longer than I thought because I decided to use steel core rather than buying a whole spool of flux core. I figured I'd just drop a few beads on the edge and break out the trusty file. That should do the trick. But, it sure won't be as nice as HB's weld job on my rivet jig!
