FWIW. I think you might have in mind playing with the sear engagements so the hammer will follow the bolt down. Don't do that, please. The result would be illegal and could do irreparable harm to the rifle if it fires out of battery.

When a high pressure round is involved, auto weapons must use a system to ensure the bolt is fully locked before the sear is released to let the hammer fall. In the AK, that involves a special bolt carrier, other special parts and a receiver made to accommodate them. Not that easy to do, and it really isn't worth jail time for the chance to waste a lot of ammo.
