We AK shooters have the tendency to manipulate our rifle with a bit less than safe and it is due to the annoyingly hard to operate safety lever.
As usual we tend to gunsmith a problem instead of solving it with proper training.
Adding a knob to help with leverage was the first thing done till somebody came up with an improved safety lever.
Still it takes a lot of index finger power to release the safety and basically the whole hand to re-engage it. But in this short video, Travis Haley shows us that a bit of practice is all we need to safely engage and dis engage the AK Safety Lever.
Never solve with gunsmithing what can be achieved with training.
