    And underneath it is the mil spec coated steel. If you are interested in cosmetics when buying an AK, you might belong at the make-up counter of your closest department store. LOL.

    They are heat treated all the way through from what I can tell. Use Arsenal trigger groups- that's what I use.

    From what I've gathered the Aresenal 'squid ink' paint that uses alcohol as a solvent is actually the same as the Sov used on the military AKs. If you're using the prescribed cleaner and oil the paint is perfectly fine. Brake cleaner or Easy Off, not so much.

    Funny, cuz the new century triggers are DEFINITELY softer. They tend to 'get dinged' rather than the BC. They are also very crisp and so far fine for me. The G2's have been popular here, but WILL tend to ding the BC.

    If running the G2's re contour the hammer face, remove that little hump edge- supposedly that reduces wear on the BC. I have some G2's in my SAR's and SA85M's but everything else in the 74 pattern or 106 pattern I use Arsenal trigger groups. The hammers are supposed to be softer, as in you should see deformation on the hammer face after a while- that is normal.

    Personal note, don't use those craptastic aftermarket triggers. Use the factory ones. They are supposed to be softer steel than the actual bolt carrier to avoid damage. Otherwise they will eat your bolt carrier group. I always buy the Arsenal trigger groups then surface the hammer face to remove that hardened layer- then replace as necessary to avoid damaging my carrier.

    So he basically designed the gun himself.
