How difficult is it to change a single hook trigger out to a double hook and is there a big advantage to it?:confused:

Not hard at all, but you'll need to make a cut in the receiver to allow the other hook to rotate.

There is no advantage to a double hook trigger over a single hook. But if you decide to buy a double hook, I have them on my web site http://www.rcmgunparts.com

Most AKs never had double hook triggers originally except for Yugoslavian AKs.

No Advantage. Replacing the stock one is highly recommended in order to get rid of trigger slap though

Thanks
I knew I could count on ya'll to help me.
I'll keep the single hook and just replace it with a tapco.

Redchevy I took a look at your site thanks.

Yeah no advantage. Tons of builds and they all have single hooks. Also have tapco and arsenal trigger groups listed.

There is an advantage if the first slot is cut too long (NDS-3). You can cut the 2nd slot to the proper length and correct overtravel trigger problems using a double-hook.

Vandal I wonder what serial number range with the nds -3 has those problems. I have 3 nds 3s that have single hooks that I shoot all the matches with. I will have to try and find out .

All 3 NDS-3 receivers I've had had a single slot, cut too long. It did lead to "function problems" with the Tapco G2 trigger set. Fun! Gunplumber has great instructions on how to modify the G2 double-hook triggers to work right with the NDS-3s.

Compare the length of the NDS-3 slot to the AK-builder flats.

The other NDS receivers have always had the right length slots.

I was under the impression that the double hook served as a backup so that if one of your hooks broke you would at least have another one to fall back on.

Also this could be the quality of the rifle but the double hook seems ALOT smoother on the trigger pull (WASR vs Vector AK's).

That would make sense. Not really sure though. When I built my AK I was reading on the subject and read something to the notion that double hooks wont work on some ak applications. I figured I would stay on the safe side and just get the single hook
