Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default WASR 10 AK Trigger Slap

I always thought trigger slap was something folks made up to exaggerate recoil on AK's.

That is, until this weekend. I was shooting a WASR 10 AK with an Ace folding stock. Dang trigger was slapping my finger so hard, it is still numb. I didn't even get through a 30 round mag before I was done with it.

I haven't had that kind of slap on any other AK.

What's a good remedy for this? Maybe replacing the stock trigger group with a different one? A double hook? If I can't fix it, there's no good reason to keep it around, that I can figure.

"The truly dangerous man dresses inconspicuously and is soft- spoken. He walks away from most confrontations. The only time you learn that the truly dangerous man is mad at you is a split second before you die, for he never fights. He only kills. The truly dangerous man knows that fighting is what children do and killing is what men do." - Charley Reese 1986

If I remember correctly they were famous for this. wrap a rubber band around the trigger? My MAC10 has some sort of soft material on the trigger to help with it.

I’ve heard the Romanian trigger sear had too much metal, and can be ground down. There are videos on how to do it.

I guess some slap and some don't.
I had a WASR 10 that I shot a fair amount and I never felt any trigger slap at all.
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Tapco AK trigger eliminates this. I had a WASR 10 and a Bulgarian 74 clone both with Tapco triggers. Never got slapped. Most reviews say they are smooth.

I thought SAM's had that issue and not the Wasr's? I have never experienced it but much talk about trigger swap on the other board. If you don't want it I am somewhat close and possibly work a deal with you. I can always work another AK into the family.

P.s. Sorry my bad not SAM but SAR's. They had a bad rap for trigger slap.

I've had three WASR 10s, and have not experienced trigger slap with any of them. Must be a hit or miss kind of thing.
I do not believe that the Democrats are single-handedly destroying this country.
I know that they, like the Republicans, are using both hands!

I have a couple Tapco hammer-trigger-sear sets. Reckon I'll swap one into it and see what happens.

I changed to a Tapco set a long time ago and never went back.

My SAR-1 Romy I bought back around 2002 nib developed noticeable slap only after I had run upwards of 10,000 rounds through it. About 4 years ago I dropped a Tapco G2 trigger group in it and presto, issue solved. The trigger pull is a lot crisper too, then the original Century setup. Cost me all of about $45.

Here's the thread where I talk about it: https://dirtydozensbunker.com/showthread.php?t=148554
