HIPERFIRE AK Trigger Unsafe?

HIPERFIRE AK Trigger Unsafe?

Join rumble!! It will not be long and this will be the only place I post new videos
use this link to join https://rumble.com/register/ZEKESHOOTS/ Is the HIPERFIRE XAK family of triggers for your AK unsafe? Probably not. Do you have one that works? Let us know in the comments below.
Do you have one that doesn’t work? Let us know!
Personally, I am going to wait until an update to the line comes to test this product. Seems like it might be a nice FCG, as long as you get lucky with your factory installed safety or if you use the HIPERFIRE adjustable safety.

    I think an AK looks silly with a bow shaped trigger, I have tried an ALG and it was nice for a drop in but I allways use the trigger from a parts kit and make it so it won’t work with full auto parts or use a semi trigger from that nation.

    I allways check the selector for safety and have never used a new production apart from WBP with selectors.

    If you get a bunch of surplus trigger that are often very cheap you can tune them so they have a very light and crisp pull and reset, I like to glue a hard rubber number inside the receiver so it has no real overtravel and stops when it resets.

    I also like to make sure everything has a mirror finish, the break, weight and pull just how I like it and I sometimes reprofile and shine up the trigger to make it more pleasent to shoot them reblue the trigger.

    You can fire very fast with a tuned trigger with rubber bumpers or stops made out of whatever.

    I have never had trigger slap with a good turned milsurp or trigger from that factory that has been tuned and after I get it very light with the stops I give it 10 realybhard whacks on the butt to a hard floor to make sure it won’t just go off.

    Plus milsurp Tigger’s don’t peen the back of the bolt carrier or hang up the carrier.

    You can make these triggers very nice with some effort and quite a bit of trail and error but I think even Zastava USA keeps their own FCGs and replaces other parts.

    In my opinion these triggers are expensive. A waste of money, don’t look like they belong in an AK and an AK trigger really should be hand fit to every rifle.

    Interestingly Kalashnikovs last patent was a removable trigger pack for the siaga and standard AK the trigger worked exactly the same but for people in the US it would be amazing to just have to make the trigger pack ala Sig pistols lol.

    But the trigger packs he made where only for izmash made AKs and just milsurp.

    If your new to owning an AK you should first learn how to shoot with just a standard milsurp trigger group from that nation.

    As for holding in pins I would much rather use c clips or a wire (somemwores are awful and some with a little modding are great but I’m not a fan of trigger retention plates, I don’t feel they are secure enough.

    If you don’t want to mess with a wire use c clips.

    I’m sure a wire is much better when it has 3 axis pins.

    You just can’t put something like a Timmy trigger in an AK and your first AK should allways be a bare bones AKM with surplus furniture, surplus FGC and open sights as then you will appreciate the work you put into your rifle and if you ever need to pickup a random AK for self defense you know what to expect.

    When you collect AKs having a load of guichi triggers is stupid.

    I have gold all my us made triggers for my own us made triggers (the time I put into refinishing and tuning them make it more than 51 percent of the value so would be US made by law)

    A metal stamp with US does not cost much lol

    I’m surprised someone has not had an accident from a bad trigger or safety.

    alg needs tune up too but I like a good old tapco polished

    I never got into these fancy triggers.

    I’m looking at one of the triggers I purchased sitting on my bench. It is still in the package and I’d be happy to send it to you if you want it for testing. I was also hoping for a trigger other then the ALG. But think I’ll hold off on installing it.

    They should have been sold as a pair,not separated

  6. ninja scout on November 20, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Dangerous, all I’m saying

  7. el tenda's channel on November 20, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    and yes they should have sold them togheter

    Had the same issue with my Kusa K103. I ordered the Hiperfire safety but the safety is loose. In the sense that shaking the ak will drop from safe to fire also the part of the safety that connects to the lever section is not tight

    Idk… Never got into aftermarket triggers on AK’s. On AR’s, pfft Im all for em but I digress. I have two very very budget AK’s. A riley defense and a PSA GF3. They Riley has a very nice Tapco trigger. Not complaining at all. I wonder how much better it’d be if it was polished. As it stands, I like it. Now on the PSA GF3, dang whoever installed that trigger at PSA factory did an AMAZING job. Such a crisp light trigger on that thing. Wow! The only thing I could wish for is for it to be a flat face trigger but as it is… just wow. Love it. Anywho, my 2 cents. Dont know much on these AK drop in triggers. I just go out, set up some paper/steel and have me some LARP-ey tacticool fun.

    I just sent my Hiperfire back to Palmetto State today. I didn’t even take it out of the package. ARF has a vid that talks about this trigger and the Hiperfire guy does slide in the fact that it needs their safety selector to work. He paints it as a "feature" as the end user won’t need to file down the back of the trigger.

  11. Striknine on November 20, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    AK triggers have a lot of inconsistencies due to having multiple separate holes in the receiver to bring the assembly together. Those holes could be off just a smidget and cause the safety or other things not to work. I’ll stick with what I know works.
    BTW Nice video brotha, looking forward to more.
