View Full Version : Converted saiga hammer won't lock back. (Fixed with pics.)

I have a converted saiga with Tapco single hook trigger. I took it to the range yesterday and it would not fire. I noticed the hammer was not locking down when i charged the bolt. Any ideas? What more info would you need to help me out. If i push the hammer down with my finger the trigger catches it but it will not fire. Help a newb out. Thanks. I can make a quick vid or pics of that would help. Thanks guys.


The hammer was in backwards.:TFH::iamwithstupid:

Hammer was in backwards. Here's picks of the complete conversion. (still need to thread the barrel but done for now.) Polished the bold carrier last night looks better in person i have a crappy camera and crappier photography skills.
