Owners of AKs can attest to the need to upgrade a trigger to increase reliability, along with a smoother uptake and cleaner break over the factory trigger. KUSA and CMC Triggers have a great option for that upgrade. Kalashnikov-USA (KUSA), the premier manufacturer of AK-pattern firearms in the United States, has joined forces with CMC Triggers, the Texas-based pioneer of drop-in triggers, to offer a single-stage, nonadjustable precision AK trigger offered with either a 3.5- or 2.5-pound pull weight.
As with other CMC triggers, the internal components are made from 8620 alloy steel and S-7 tool steel. The chassis is made from 7075-T6 aircraft-grade anodized aluminum. CMC’s superb machining, polishing, and fitting results in a crisp trigger with a clean break and positive reset.
According to the company website, the AK 2.0 trigger is the ultimate upgrade for the AK47 variant. The trigger group is 100% modular and CNC machined. The KUSA AK 2.0 trigger reportedly has the cleanest and most reliable trigger pull the AK platform has ever had. The choice between a 2.5-pound or 3.5-pound trigger pull weight will help the shooter fine-tune their shooting. While the single-stage means there is a consistent and clean pull to firing without the uptake and wall of two-stage triggers.
Tested extensively in KUSA rifles, the new AK 2.0 trigger provides positive ignition with a wide variety of ammunition. The AK 2.0 was designed for the KR-103 and KP/KR-9 series of rifles but will fit most other AKs. Offered with a flat trigger bow, it is designed to be a drop-in fit with other AK pattern rifles having correctly aligned and dimensioned trigger and hammer pins.

Patti Miller is one of the most awesome females in the tactical/firearm (or any) industry. Imagine a tall, hawt, dangerous Laura Ingalls Wilder type with cool hair and a suppressed blaster and you’ll be getting the idea. What’s interesting is that in addition to being a willing brawler and intrepid adventuress, she’s also an Ent/Ogier level gardener and a truly badass baker.
