    That it's a glorified body kit and a ghettification of a 10/22? I'd rather have a real Krinkov. For the price of a 10/22 plus that kit, you're already approaching the cost of a real AK.

    Pretty much sums it up.

    Since you ask: I think it is an unnecessary, expensive and rather pointless modification to a decent .22 rifle.

    It holds no appeal for me. However, if you feel otherwise, it's essentially harmless so go right ahead.

    i do understand that it is a completely unnecessary piece of machinery. and that you could get much better tactical .22 rifles for less or close to the same price. it just looks cool.

    Check out Rimfirecentral.com. There is a tactical 10/22 section. You will likely find reviews from people who have used the kit and what they think of it.

    I have one and love it. Everyone who takes a shot in the back yard loves it. I traded out the pistol grip for a SAW grip, for my big mitts. Last summer we put over 2K rounds through it off the back porch.

    Positives: AK confusion, p-grip, rails on four sides for your Mall-ninja gear, threaded barrel for a can, folding stock

    Negatives: pain in the arse to break down for cleaning, short sight radius, won't work with factory 10rd mags, and the rear-sight gets in the way of my NV scope.

    You can get around the short sight radius/inaccuracy with a red dot scope - i have an old BSA 60mm (? dia. ? anyways, the larger, discontinued one) which allows the metal sights to be used as well, when i forget to turn it off and the batteries die...

    As stated in some other thread around here, i've taken a coyote with it at 108 yds. as well as numerous bunnies, tree rats, and groundhogs.

    You'll have to get a couple Tactical Innovations mags for it too - it's really easy to spool off 25 rds.

    I saw the above argument that you could be into a real AK for the same amount of loot - but the difference in ammo costs are huge; also availability.

    I wouldn't worry about the initial investment, since the interest earned in fun-factor is exponential.

    Can't argue with that.

    Apparently no one has priced a real AK lately.
    The Krinker kit includes a match grade barrel, and you can find them well under the list price. Mine rivals my GM barrel for accuracy at fifity yards.
    I'm not aware of any other kit that gives you the appearance of an AK74. They are an absolute blast with a thirty round mag.
    I started with a hundred dollar beat up donner rifle, added the twofifty kit, a few cheap add ons, and instant mall ninja!

    It's funny how people can give a negative review on something they have never owned.

    Not a chance, unless you know of someplace I don't.

    For another hundred bucks, you can get a .22 upper for an AR.

    Then you can leave your 10/22 alone (it's good for what it's good for), and whatever you've done to your AR lower (trigger, stock, grip, etc.) will be leveraged as part of your "evil" .22 toy.:)

    WRT the 10-round factory mag, for some people (in states where they're forced to use the 10-rounder) that IS a dealbreaker.

    I agreed that the kit achieves that objective very nicely.

    Actually, I don't see a single negative review in this thread. The only reviews (yours and desidog's) were positive.

    People expressed their opinions as to the kit's perceived value (consistant with the op's request for "other peoples opinion ... what do you guys think and such?"), not how well/poorly it's made. One doesn't need to have personal experience to voice such - subjective - opinions.

    As I said, it's an essentially harmless modification. Those who prefer form over function should go right ahead and buy the kit.

    You could always just get a Wasr-22 or an AKT-98 and have a real AK in 22lr.

    dont forget you gotta pay a good $1000 for the AR while you can get a 10/22 for $200

    Aside from my krinker plug above; here is another option...

    Nodak Spuds makes some 10/22-type receivers that are on my wish list. http://www.nodakspud.com/NDS-22.htm

    The receiver with the M16A1 sight can be used with a bull barrel, so it is probably very accurate for open sights, and you still have the 1913-rail for other optics.

    If they run a batch in OD green, like the flattop and shaved versions, I won't be able to resist the temptation any longer.

    Where?

    Not that many of them around as people have snatched them all up.


    Now don't get your hopes too high....There is a deal in the works with Izhmash to get Saiga .22 rifles into the country, not sure when, but there are negotiations between the manufacturer, importer and the BATFE going on right now...

    in michigan, i can still snag up a WASR for about $340, but that is a tad bit irrelevant since 7.62x39 food is harder to find than Osama Bin Laden at this point... but with the $300+ pricetag of a K/P kit, and the initial $200 for the 10/22, its almost not worth it. yet, i do see myself one day caving in to try this project out, because it looks a bit too damn cool not to own something like that that spits out 22LR. anyone else who disagrees is either broke like me, or jealous...

    They well, but are a real pita to remove. You can add a small piece to the bottom of the mag to grab for removal.
    Sportsman warehouse runs them on sale once a year or so, about hundred bucks off. You can find trashed 10/22 for cheap, all you use is the receiver/trigger group. Mine cost under $350 total.

    Luckily I already have a Wasr22 but a Saiga 22 would be pretty sweet.

    Yes it would, there is a discussion going on at "The AK Forum" regarding this.

    Of course I always bug the guys importing those things to try to get them to import the Vityaz 9mm as a carbine too!

    GSG is also bringing a AK22 to the market. It is supposed to be available by this summer last I heard.

    Ruger 10/22 $160 used
    sell off barrel and stock and magazine -$40
    =$120

    kit used $250-260
    butler creek mag $15

    total $400

    which isn't so bad compared to mp15-22s at $500 and don't work right.
