I did it. :cool: Just refinished the metal last night so I'll post pics later this afternoon or evening. I now have a functioning (safe and fire only of course) left side selector with the three positions and markings to boot. It was a bitch. The Polish rifles must have taller receivers or SOME geometry that's different because boy was I surprised when the bolt carrier was smacking into the selector shaft! DAMN! I wonder how they really are set up? I had to notch that shaft to clear the carrier in all three selector positions and design and make a REMOVABLE (for disassembly) "lug" to act as the actual safety on the left trigger leg rather than the right side. Then, I had to reshape the hammer and trigger spring to clear it all. BUT, it was worth it.................pics to follow shortly............. :wink:

I know that now. Lower and maybe a tad further back? Hence the mods to my right side selector. Too late now. :roll: Turned out OK all things taken into consideration. :neutral: :wink:

The markings are hot!

How does that puzzle go together? I can't finger it out by looking at the parts in your picture...

I have an idea for what I want to do, and I think it will work.

I will have to fabricate a new axle for the left side selector, but it should work like this (if I've fingered it out right):

Left side safe/fire
Right side safe/fire

if either is on safe weapon will not fire.



Surgery is no fun. Get well.
