    What are the differences between a G2 Single Hook Replacement Trigger and a G2 Double Hook Replacement Trigger for an AK-74?

    I'm planning to buy an Arsenal AK-74 SGL-31 soon, and one of the first mods I'll make (after installing some Bulgarian wood) will be to put in a new G2 trigger.

    GunAccessories.com sells both flavors:

    IIRC, the double-hook triggers are for milled guns and the single hook triggers are for stamped guns. I think you'll need a single hook. But you'll know exactly what you need as soon as you strip the gun.

    Milled receivers usually have double hook triggers. Single hook triggers are typically preferred by European armorers for stamped receivers. Not sure why exactly. Check to see if you have a single slot or double slot in front of your trigger guard before you order the trigger.

    Why? I have an SGL-21 and an AK with the G2 trigger, and overall I think the Arsenal trigger is a nicer, more consistent pull. It's probably a higher quality part too. The G2 is slightly lighter but kinda creepy and not 100% consistent.

    I'm planning to see how things go with the factory trigger. But from what I've read, a lot of folks with Arsenal SGL-31's opt for the G2 trigger. Maybe things have changed since these reviews and YouTube videos were made...who knows?

    If the Arsenal FCG has the tab on the piece that promotes trigger slap, then I'll go with a new FCG rather than break out the Dremel tool to grind off the tab.

    I wasn't even aware of those issues. I've never had the slightest trigger slap on my SGL-21. I've experienced it on another AK (some random person's AK at the range - I think it had Century FCG parts) and it's unpleasant.

    The Arsenal factory disconnector has a tab on it that prevents trigger slap. The tab hits a special tall rivet that blocks trigger slap.

    Try shooting the rifle before replacing parts. You might save some time and money.

    BTW, the whole single vs. double hook trigger thing is a artifact of the AK to AKM upgrade. The original AK series has double hook triggers. When then rate reducer was introduced for the AKM they needed the space for the rate reducer, so the right side seat was replaced with the rate reducing mechanism. Since we almost never see intact full auto triggers most people don't know about those parts and where they go.
