Full Description

The AK Trigger Ultimate with Lightning Bow (AKT-UL) is a single stage trigger is designed for the AK47 and AK74 variant platforms. 

The ALG Defense AK series of triggers were designed to work with most AK variants without fitting. With AK variants that have a rivet for the rear of the trigger guard, commonly acting as an anti-slap feature, this rivet should be no greater than 0.062 inches tall. Our AK series of triggers are designed to work with rivets that are 0.062 inches in height or less. If this rivet is higher than 0.062 inches, the rivet will have to be shaved down to allow for more clearance. Having improper clearance can result in damage to the disconnector itself. 

Alternatively, if the user does not choose to modify the rivet, you can opt to modify the underside of the disconnector to increase the clearance between the bottom of the disconnector and the rivet in the receiver. It is not recommended to completely remove the tail of the disconnector as adverse issues may arise, such as trigger slap. Most users prefer to bevel (angle) the disconnector in the area that would contact the rivet. We recommend shaving down the rivet, not the disconnector tail.

Please note, we do recommend having a qualified gunsmith install and perform all fitting of fire control groups.  AK receivers and parts coming from a wide origin of manufacture vary, there is no agreed upon set specifications.  As such, fitting may be required.  Please note the rivet and/or disconnect will need the proper clearance as per the chart below, failure to have the correct clearance will cause damage.“

Best trigger for AK
Review by Edgehillboy

Installed this trigger (ultimate AK with lightning bow) on an AK 74 build. I own several of these rifles and multiple triggers. I can unequivocally say that this is the best AK trigger that I have used. Minimal pre-travel followed by clean, crisp break. Measures at the advertised 3.5 lb break. After struggling with high weights and gritty pulls of stock AK tiggers, this one is a surprising pleasure. Only down side is that it will not work in my Saiga 308. Also, roll pin insert allows safety to engage rock solid. High quality throughout.
Home run device.

Review by JH

wow, all i have to say is wow. installation was fast and easy and the video helped me out in a bind. you know that this is a quality company and a quality part not only because ALG is associated with geissele but because of the video.. i have never seen a company who takes the time to make DETAILED and DESCRIPTIVE videos for install like bill geissele does. now on to the trigger... combined with the high energy mainspring in my akm i am getting a crisp 2.6-2.8lb break EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. minot fitting could be required depending on your variant or safety selector style, i did not need the roll pin for my safety to be operational but it was installed anyways and the trigger does not creep an inch while in safe. overall this is the nicest trigger for ak variant i have ever used, i have installed and tried all kinds of triggers for this variant even the CMC elite drop in priced at 200+ only thing id do with that trigger is "DROP it IN the trash" if i was offered the ALG UKT-UL.
