You got a good reduction in weight. You can still square up the trailing edge if the hammer hook by working the angled upper portion back to meet the release point. That angled portion doesn't contact the hammer sear so it won't effect the overall engagement area or reduce your trigger travel as far as safety goes, unless you take it back past your current release point. If you go no further than that, all it should do is make the let off more crisp with no drag at release.

Once you get it where you want it you may consider trying to harden those surfaces to make it last also.

Now here's where the trigger job gets interesting... :-D

I just installed the precision main spring from Carolina Shooter supply into my saiga 12. That's all I did to my saiga trigger, and that spring did this to my saiga 12...

However.... :-D

Look at what I discovered... Both factory springs!

They are identical.

This means that I can order the Carolina Shooter Supply trigger spring for the Saiga 12, (around 8 bucks), and drop it in the PSL.

Had I discovered that earlier, that's probably all I would have done.

If that brought my saiga 12 trigger pull under 3 lbs, I am very curious as to its performance in the PSL.

The psl muzzle brake has no effect on accuracy one way or the other.

Limit your shots to one or two before letting the barrel cool. Its a super thin very whippy type barrel and once it heats even a little accuracy goes right to hell.

Thanks for the feedback Jon. I'll keep that in mind.

The reason I chose to remove the brake is because in the guns and ammo complete book of the ak-47, Gabe Suarez has an article (pg 100), and he claims that he closed a 2moa once he removed the brake. He claims it disturbs the exit of the bullet.
I was going off of that when I made my decision.
