    :D:D:D:D


    should I pre order one I am so tempted been debating it all day. Even though it's in .223 I still like it. Would be amazing if it were in 7.62 IMO-plus i think krinks had 8.25 bbl length , but I can settle for .223

    its just so pretty
    & it seems really cheap

    EDIT: oh ya on another note, took my .44 desert eagle out and shot it for the first time - Nothing like hot brass cases flying back on me - it's super accurate, would be more accurate if I didn't flinch since I couldn't find my safety glasses lol

    So, you shot a firearm for the very first time without eye protection? No offense, but that's not a smart move.

    AK or AR pistols don't get me goin but if it floats your boat... Arsenal has a great rep, that's for sure.

    In the it's neat to sort of have a Krinkov without the SBR price tag, yes. On the practical side.. not so much.

    As the basis for a functional SBR, 7.62x39 makes more sense.
    It also has a sling swivel in the way of mounting your receiver plate and then there is this:

    I think I will pass.

    It's cool, but I am a cheapskate. That price looks scary to me when the PLR-16 is available.

    I would find one in 7.62x39.
    If you could find some type of holster, it would make for an awesome concealed carry, if you were wearing some sort of rain jacket :D

    If you want something in 7.62x39, just get a Draco, which would be a couple hundred dollars less expensive anyway. For that price, you could get an SGL series AK rifle.

    Kinda looks like the tanker version that Bin-Laden was always seen with.Just a little smaller.I wonder what the range is on something like that with such a short barrel but shooting a rifle round?

    Don't know how accurate it would be but it would make for a really cool SBR. Not very practical but fun to shoot, if nothing else.

    Stuff like that reminds me of cocaine: God's way of telling you that you have too much money.

    Yes, way too much money; especially so if you're spending it on something like that.

    Pass.

    Pure fun, but not practical.

    Now I am no fan of the AK or any of its derivatives and I'll be the last to buy one but that is a little silly. Paying over $300,000 cash for a brand new Ferrari because you like the color is one thing but buying a $700 fun gun is quite another. I filled my needs a long time ago so everything since has been for the fun of it. Pure luxury, if you will. I'm sure your average black rifle enthusiast would have the same opinion of most of my purchases. So I really have to take exception to statements like that. Although with the present war on successful people in full swing, I'm not surprised.

    Slap a stock on that beauty and she is more than practical. That is actually an incredible price for what appears to be a real Krink. Any other Krink you find will be far more expensive and most likely made with an american receiver and barrel. I would prefer 7.62x39 though with that barrel length. I was thinking of doing a saiga 5.56 conversion for my next gun but thats got me reconsidering.

    If you take the flash hider off, you've got a 40 round flash/bang with the bonus bullet dispenser.

    You can't, at least not without a huge PITA.

    It is both non-functional and pinned on.

    Pay For the Tax Stamp, put a stock on it, mount a red dot and you would have pretty fun shooter.

    Removing pinned on muzzle devices really isnt all that bad. I removed a couple of pinned on brakes from AWB guns and replaced them with flash suppressors, and using a file, total time was probably about 1-2 hours max. Once you figure out whats going on, it goes pretty quick and easy.


    As far as the sling swivel on the back plate, I think its nice they give you one. Saves you from installing one. Shooting without a stock using just a sling is actually a fairly stable platform and you can shoot quite well shooting that way. I've shot a number of guns this way, including full autos, and had no troubles making good hits, even at longer ranges. Even without the sling, you can still shoot better than you might imagine if you hold the gun like there was a stock.

    Anyone getting that much velocity from a 10.5" barrel? Looks about 300 fps too fast, but maybe the fireball will make up for it.

    106ur's can and do sometimes have issues. Mainly due to the .223 caliber. I'd pass on a .223 cal one. But 7.62x39. Now that would be harder.
