Pompano Beach, Florida August 6, 2022 – Kalashnikov-USA (KUSA), the premier manufacturer of AK-pattern firearms in the United States, has joined forces with CMC Triggers, the Texas-based pioneer of drop-in triggers, to offer a new, single-stage, nonadjustable precision trigger offered with either a 3.5- or 2.5-pound pull weight. As with other CMC triggers, the internal components are made from 8620 alloy steel and S-7 tool steel. The chassis is made from 7075-T6 aircraft grade anodized aluminum.  CMC’s superb machining, polishing and fitting results in a crisp trigger with a clean break and positive reset.  Tested extensively in KUSA rifles, the new AK 2.0 trigger provides positive ignition with a wide variety of ammunition.  Offered with a flat trigger bow, it is designed to be a drop-in fit with other AK pattern rifles having correctly aligned and dimensioned trigger and hammer pins.  Available for purchase on KUSA’s website, the MSRP is $189.99.
