Patent No. US 6,772,548 B1
New Redesigned Red Star Arms/Power Custom AK Trigger
This trigger has been modified to fit most AK's without modifications. The trigger has been widen, opened up in the rear to clear the trigger guard rivets. The adjustment screws have been moved slightly but, are basically in the same location. Some AK's may need the receiver window altered to allow the trigger to fit through the receiver hole so, it will move freely in the receiver (we have found the Maadi's need this modification more then any other AK's out there but, it is possible for there to be others). Please follow the sequence in the enclosed instructions.
The ONLY 100% milled AK trigger group made in the USA. Made the right way, from solid steel bar stock. Before, the American shooter had to settle for cast or MIM'd copies of the original parts, not anymore! RSA offers the first fully adjustable Kalashnikov fire control system.
Will fit most milled and stamped 7.62, 5.45, and 5.56 AK variants. Select from our standard version for 7.62, 5.45, and most 5.56 guns, or from our new SAR-3 version.
This trigger group is adjustable for Pretravel, Overtravel, Disconnector Engagement, and Trigger Pull. Depending on your preference and application, it can be adjusted for Single Stage or Two Stage pull.
Package includes heat treated blued hammer, trigger, and disconnector, along with a US made Wolff disconnector spring, and a cheater pin which holds the trigger and disconnector together while installing the parts in your rifle. Allen wrench is included for adjustment, along with detailed instructions for installing and adjusting your trigger group.
All parts are CNC machined from solid steel barstock, and the three piece group will qualify as 3 US parts per US Law.

What our customers say.
To whom it may concern,
I purchased a Red Star Arms adjustable trigger, after reading several forums, notably, Romanian Kaleshnikovs, which highly recommended them. The trigger in my Romanian PSL (Romak 3) would stick in the forward position, and had to be pushed forward to function. I therefore replaced it with one of your company's adjustable triggers, and can say categorically that it is everything it's advertised to be. It came pre-adjusted with a two stage 4 pound pull, which I did not attempt to re-adjust as it is very similar to the pull on an M-1 Garand, which I like. I would, however, like to give some advise to those who are contemplating placing one of your triggers in their Romak 3. First, download the tutorial from Romanian Kaleshnikovs on how to install a new trigger group. It comes with a step by step pictorial guide, and is very helpful to the novice. Next, remember that the Romak 3 has a safety that is more pronounced than those of most AK 47's. If you follow the instructions that Red Star provides pertaining to filing (use a dremmel) the safety to remove it, you shouldn't have any problems taking it out, and will ensure that the safety works as it was intended to. I also used a dremmel to file down part of the old trigger, which expedited its removal. I would also highly recommend that you purchase a Shepherds Crook Replacement Plate from Red Star Arms, as it will expedite putting your fire control group back together in a major way. The only thing you may have to do is dremmel a very small amount off the right side top portion of the replacement plate, making dropping the plate in place a breeze.
Again, I highly recommend both the Red Star Adjustable Trigger and Shepherds Crook Replacement Plate to anyone who wants to improve the accuracy and dependability of their PSL or any other Kaleshnikov pattern rifle.
Thank you for a great product.
What a slick fit! Just as you advertised! Minimal removal of material from the safety yoke produced an excellent retrofit including pin retainer plate and Buffer Technology recoil buffer.
Even the instructions were adequately detailed and easy to understand.
Typical result of American ingenuity....something we could use more of in these times of rampant outsourcing!
Can't wait to get out and feel the difference. If it shoots out half as good as it went in, I'll be satisfied.
Made me a "happy camper" and you can bet I'll be back and tell everyone I know.
I just wanted to say that I am very impressed with your FCG. I have heard many mention how great your products are, and I knew that they must have been good. I have used the GT, FSE, crappy Century FCG's, but your FCG is head & shoulders above the rest.
All I can say is wow. My shooting skills have slipped a little with age, but your product is incredible. I like your trigger better than my Bushmaster AR, and now I am able to get better groups with your product.
Just got home from my two day trip (I fly for American) and there's my Romak 3 waiting for me. You kidder - you had told me 2-4 weeks, and only one week after I had shipped the weapon to you there I had it back.
The trigger is absolutely wonderful! Just like my Global SSR85B and my VEPR. Dead freakin' perfect! You people are fantastic! Your product is phenomenal and your customer support is nothing short of wonderful.
Thank you again for terrific customer service.
