    Source for Bulgy krink parts kits?

    Picked up a Pearl transferable full stock AK recently.

    Thinking of making a krink out of it.
    Anybody got a source for bulgy krink parts kits?

    I donít know a ton about AKs
    Any build suggestions?

    Awesome - Is it a Maadi/Steyr gun? As you know parts kits with an original barrel are getting harder to find, especially a Bulgy kit. Your best bet is to source one from an auction site. As far as the build goes, it depends if you want a 7.62 or 5.45. I'm partial to a Krinkov in 5.45. Here are some AK builders that some people recommend:

    I have a AKS-74U build by Ted Marshall on a Norinco 5.56 receiver with a virgin Bulgarian kit.

    Oh off the subject but do you still have the vented HK MP5 handguard you listed on GB? Looking for one in excellent or new condition and one for a HK G3K.

    It is a stamped Poly - not a Maadi ;(
    Never shot a krink in 5.45, so I havenít had an opportunity to develop a preference.
    Iíve got a LaFrance Poly krink in 7.62, so I was thinking another one

    Stamped Poly=heavy duty 1.5mm receiver..5.45 is my preference.
    Sadly the days of $199 kits are long gone.

    Don’t think that was my listing you saw, or if it was it was for M60.

    Any suggestions for new semi pistols/krinks that would
    serve as a decent parts kit for a FA krink build?

    Btw, congrats on the Ted Marshall build!!! Must be a beauty

    Man that’s what every fucking body does. Leave it a full
    Stock! Not only do I believe It’s worth more that way, but there are way less of them, and they are a hell
    Of a lot nicer to shoot. I have a krink and bunch of full stock. Your better off leaving it alone in my opinion.

    Matt,

    I started a post earlier but deleted it. I am not AK builder, but maybe can help generate some options to consider if you are still intent on making project of it.

    If wanting to stay more with the Bulgy Krink "Style" (true Krinks being the Soviet/Bulgarian 5.45x39 AKS-74U triangle side-folders), current production Arsenal SLR107-58's are in stock at K-Var for $1850, and have chrome-lined HF barrels that could be cut. Stock is folder, but not triangle.

    If content for Draco style, Arms of America has some WBP Lynx pistol kits available. A 4150V barrel is included in a head-spaced kit (there is kit without barrel and having fixed stock trunnion), but worth warning the included proprietary gas tube is machined aluminum. There is a more traditional steel gas tube option available for purchase, but limited in supply.

    https://armsofamerica.com/wbp-fully-...ture-in-stock/
    https://armsofamerica.com/wbp-mini-7...a-rules-apply/
    https://armsofamerica.com/wbp-lynx-s...per-handguard/ (should be proper steel gas tube)

    Another pistol option may be to go route of a Yugoslavian M92 (or M85). New current USA ZPAP92 models are having chrome-lined CHF barrels and can still be found for about $1000-1200, but are built on the 1.5mm receiver trunnions.

    Hope the info is helpful.

    Def taking this opinion into consideration.

    I will say the sights on them kind'a blow

    Good info - THANKS!
    The SLR107-58 looks like a good starting point (except I would want a folding triangle stock & can-style flash-hider).
    I like the look of old-style wood furniture vs. synthetic.

    Thinking that maybe I should just grab a kits or two now for future options if I choose to go forward...

    Glad the info useful.

    Perhaps your current receiver can be modified to be a triangle folder. I would think the SLR107-58 is having simply a faux suppressor over 16" barrel, and the barrel can be cut, crowned, and threaded to your liking (24x1.5Rh or 1/14Lh, or other). Unsure if there would be any reason that traditional wood could not be fitted.

    Worth considering if the aluminum tubes on those Polish kits are durable to heat from FA, hence why bringing attention to the steel tube option.

    There is a very nice looking M92 Parts Kit on GB right now being sold by Ordnance Systems, but it is an under-folder.

    Yeah, not going underfolder
    They suck & would have to butcher the receiver to fit it

    Hey Aaron,

    I'm a total chucklehead when it comes to AK's. Is the advantage of a head spaced kit that I can just rivet the bbl/trunion into the receiver and be good to go? I'd like to put together a krinkish postie or SBR in 7.62x39.
    AWWWW NUTS!

    Interesting question.

    As mentioned above to Matt, I am not an AK builder (or gunsmith). Just trying to help participate and provide some ideas that could be options.

    I would intuitively think its not quite that simple. I anticipate other factors likely come into play including but not limited to the bolt carrier guide rails. I would be getting in over my head trying to comment more than this. Hopefully another friendly person can be willing to answer more definitively.
