Galil / AK74 fire selector removal?

Recommended Posts

I recently got hold of a CYMA Galil SAR and want to do my usual stripdown, re grease and downgrade the spring to bring it under 350 FPS. I suspect its a clone of the King Arms gun.

 

Its a relatively easy gun to strip down apart from one problem.

 

My issue is I'm not 100% sure how to remove the Fire selector lever. I've stripped several TM and clone AKs which have a press fit cap over the retaining screw which passes through the body and links it to the gearbox.

 

This gun appears different and I'm not sure there is a cap, or if the whole fire selector and pivot assembly have to be removed / unscrewed some other way? It certainly appears to be fixed to the gearbox somehow as with everything else removed it pivots a tad but can't be removed.

 

As I suspect many modern AK variants are similar to this, anyone in the know got any ideas where I'm going wrong?

 

Cheers,

Martyn.

After much headscratching I've figured it now. Simply a matter of unscrewing anticlockwise the whole pivot assembly (using pliers to get it started as there are no slots / flats to engage any tool!)

 

 

NOTE TO ADMIN THIS CAN NOW BE DELETED / PINNED / LOCKED AS YOU SEE FIT. THANKS.
