CMC released their CMC AK Trigger Group 2.0 series late last year, giving the AK market a true modern feeling single stage trigger. I got a close look at these new trigger groups at their booth at Shot Show 2023, let’s check them out. Maybe this will be a new trigger group you might want to install in one of your AKs as a significant and vital upgrade.

If you’ve ever fired a factory AK, the trigger does not have a wall, very smooth pull through and fire. As far as mas produced rifles go, AKs have decent stock triggers. If you are most used to AR triggers, these CMC AK Trigger Groups will have you feeling right at home. These have minimal take up to the wall and an incredibly clean break. Reset is tactile and short. Install will be much easier than a standard AK fire control group, no more snake bite from the twisted spring.

The CMC AK2.0 Elite Trigger utilizes the most advanced manufacturing and quality control techniques. CMC’s critical sear engagement surfaces have a proprietary machining process that renders superior surface finish and dimensional control. As compared to their competition, the techniques used to establish a 1-2 RMS surface finish as opposed to EDMing which leaves a pitty 32 RMS, compared to a mirror which is 0 RMS.

Best of all, the CMC AK 2.0 Elite Trigger is proudly 100% Made in the Great State of Texas, and comes with CMC’s Satisfaction Guarantee and Lifetime Warranty.
