Preventative maintenance

Installed it is my WASR GP and it does exactly what it is supposed to do. It did require a little bit of fitting. But that's to be expected on a Wasr.



to short for the ras47. Did not retain pins causing major malfunction. Upon further observation it did seat all the way into hammer pin and allowed trigger pin to wiggle free while firing the weapon. Buy a krebbs or just use the paper clip(seems to work fine).



Primary Arms shipped it out in a timely manner as always. Item came as described.

It works


It's much better than the "paper clip" the rifle came with.

good product


I always used Krebs retaining plates in my rifles but with these being half the price and they do the same exact thing I will now be using these instead of the Krebs
