    Hey all. I'm in the process of doing a Saiga 12 conversion and ran into a little dilemma. As some of you may know, the safety lever has to modified (ground or cut) to be able to slide past the BHO lever when reassembling. Well, I took off too much when modding it and now the disconnector will trip the hammer when I pull the trigger even if the gun is on safety.:faint:Obviously, I will have to get another safety lever to fix this.

    So, getting to my point and question. Will any AK safety lever work on a Saiga 12 ? I ordered one that came from an Egyptian AK. Will this work ? Thanks in advance.

    When I converted my S12 I did not modify the safety at all and I kept the BHO. Some people do modify the BHO but havent heard of people modifying the safety.
    I didn't do either...
    It's tricky to reassemble but not impossible.

    Just take your safety lever to a shop and have them build it back up
    buy welding the "leg" alittle longer. Most auto repair shops have good
    welders,that do take a lunch breaks. :supergrin:
